CBS introduced the new houseguests during the premiere of "Big Brother" season 16 last night. Like last year, all 16 members of the cast are brand new faces to the show. "Big Brother After Dark" started on June 27, 2014. Read on to get to know the new female houseguests a little bit better. Warning, spoiler information is included below.

Joey Van Pelt is a 27-year-old makeup artist from Seattle. She is a very liberal minded person who is interested in meeting someone on "Big Brother" with the same views for a possible showmance. She wants to get an all-girl alliance going this season which might not be a good idea. CBS held a vote for "BB16 Team America" and Joey was voted in as the first member which means she is already a fan favorite.

Amber Borzotra is a 26-year-old model and esthetician from Knoxville, Tenn. She describes herself as an athletic country girl. Amber was raised by a single mother and wants to win the money so that she can help her mother financially.

Nicole Franzel is a 21-year-old, nurse from Ubly, Mich. She is a "Big Brother" superfan that has been watching the show since she was eight years old. Nicole comes from a super small town with only 750 residents. She graduated from Saginaw Valley State University in May with a bachelor’s degree of science in nursing.

Paola Shea is a 27-year-old, D.J. and model from Astoria, N.Y. She was in Maxim Magazine. She also loves to play violent video games. Paola is up for eviction this week against Donny.

"Big Brother" season 16 promises to be the most twisted summer ever. "Big Brother" airs every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday on CBS channel WTEV 47 in Jacksonville. Check back with Examiner often for all the "Big Brother 16" news and spoilers throughout the summer.
