'Big Brother 16': Half the house guests move in and first HoH is named

The first eight house guests have taken their place in the "Big Brother 16" house and fans have had a chance to get to know a little about them. Everyone was shocked when they found out that the Head of Household is not safe but that didn't stop the new reality TV stars from fighting hard for the top spot. A Thursday report by E! Online detailed the first half of the "Big Brother 16" premiere and the first eight house guests. Who is your favorite this season and do you think they have what it takes to win?

In case you have the "Big Brother 16" premiere on your DVR and haven't watched it yet, be warned that there will be spoilers from this point forward. Keep reading for details of Wednesday night's one-hour premiere of "Big Brother 16."

The house guests were in shock when Julie Chen announced that the Head of Household (HoH) would not be safe this season. In a bid to add freshness to the show, CBS announced a huge new twist. This season there will be two HoH's each week but they can still go home that week. There is no guaranteed safety.

Each Head of Household will stay in their own suite during their reign. Just like previous seasons, the HoH will nominate two other house guests to be on the block for elimination. "Big Brother" has added a "Battle of the Block" competition this season and this has to tie in somehow with the safety of the HoH.

There are already a few notable house guests in the "Big Brother" house. YouTube personality and celebrity big brother Frankie Grande has already put himself on the line. He's risking the other house guests finding out that his celebrity sister is Ariana Grande. Rather than fly under the radar, he has won the first HoH competition and displayed his larger than life personality. This could work out well for him if he builds an alliance but historically, winning too much too early will put a huge target on his back.

Another notable houseguest is good ol' boy Donny. No joke, Donny looks like he got lost on his way to the "Duck Dynasty" set and wandered into "Big Brother." He's charming and easy-going with a big, bushy beard and a camouflage wardrobe. Donny will have an advantage in the house because he is likable and doesn't seem threatening. If he plays it right, house guests who seem more physically or intellectually threatening will become targets while he coasts right though.

Then there is Amber who might have been the first Head of Household had she not thrown the competition. Amber must have done her homework because as we mentioned earlier. winning too much too early can make you a target. Smart and athletic may get her far but Amber needs to work on subtlety because you don't want the other house guests to actually know when you lose a competition on purpose.

These are just three of the first eight house guests on "Big Brother 16" that look to pose a big threat and were certainly noticed on the first half of the season premiere. Devin, Paola, Cody, Joey and Nicole have plenty of time to prove viewers wrong and take over the house.

Tune in Thursday at 8 p.m. EST for the second half of the "Big Brother 16" premiere on CBS. The final eight contestants will be introduced and another HoH will be crowned.
