Big Brother” is one of the most anticipated shows of the summer. Season 16 is set to begin in just over a week, and fans are buzzing with excitement. The cast reveal is scheduled for the end of this week, and speculation about who was chosen has been floating around social media. According to a June 17 report from Big Brother Access, Julie Chen will be revealing the huge twist this season tomorrow on her show “The Talk.” It may be the announcement of a “Blood vs. Water” season, or it may be a season full of all-stars.

Rachel Reilly has been a familiar face for “Big Brother” fans for the better part of five years. From being controversial to eventually winning the money, Reilly has been in and out of the house quite often. Last season her younger sister Elissa Slater was part of the cast. That caused a lot of angst among the houseguests, partially leading to Slater's downfall.

According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, it appears that several veterans may be returning. “Big Brother” Season 14 winner, Ian Terry is high on the suspect list. Frank Eudy and Eric Stein have also been mentioned. There was brief speculation that Matt Hoffman could return, but that buzz has died down. Aaryn Gries has been mentioned as well. After Gries' racial remarks last season it is highly unlikely CBS would bring her back.

The Season 16 premiere of “Big Brother” will begin airing June 25 on CBS. It is going to be broken down into two nights, which is something that has not been done before. Fans have been voting for their favorite and least favorite houseguests which is leading to speculation about the winners of the contest being thrown into the house as well. One thing fans can count on is a summer filled with drama and fun, especially for those who purchase the live feeds.
