'Big Brother 14' Cast Revealed

Meet the new cast of "Big Brother 14."

The CBS series will have 12 new players -- including "Survivor" veteran Russell Hantz's brother -- competing for the $500,000 grand prize during Season 14. The season premieres Thurs., July 12 at 9 p.m. ET with Julie Chen as host.

But it wouldn't be a new season of a long-running reality show without a twist: Four successful players from past "Big Brother" seasons will return to play their own game for a separate prize. The returning players -- and details about their mission -- will be revealed during the season premiere.
