The 'Big Brother: Over The Top' Cast Features Sisters, A Debt Collector, & One Guy Named "Cornbread"
Big Brother: Over The Top is switching up the familiar formula in a big way. The first ever online-only season of Big Brother premieres on CBS All Access Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10 p.m. ET. Big Brother: Over The Top will be presented live, inside the house, for 24 hours a day. Subscribers to the online platform will also be able to watch full competitions, ceremonies, and diary room sessions live. And, with its debut in a few days, it's time to meet the Big Brother: Over The Top houseguests.
On Monday, CBS announced the 12 new houseguests that will be introducing the webseries' inaugural season. Among the cast are everyone from debt collectors, teachers, and tree removers ranging in age from 21 to 41. And the casting isn't even done yet, as the BBOTT house will be getting an additional roommate in the form of a returning player. Fans are able to vote now to choose between BB18's Jozea or BB17's Jason to be the veteran houseguest in Big Brother: Over The Top. But even if your favorite veteran houseguest doesn't come back, there is a good chance that you'll have a new favorite by the end of the fall season. Here's who you can expect to play the game come Wednesday.
Bio: Alex will be bringing her spirited personality to BB all the way from her hometown of Dallas, Texas. Her experience as an animation designer will likely keep the house creative and fun.
Bio: Danielle hails from the small city of Visalia, California, but don't let her small town roots fool you. This teacher spends her days dealing with pre-school children, which isn't too far from the hand the Big Brother house is likely to deal her.
Bio: Justin's fashion sense isn't the only proof that he's got good taste. This New Orleans resident also owns a seafood restaurant, which should help him recognize if anything fishy is going on inside the house.
Bio: As a waitress, chances are that Kryssie has dealt with the absolute worst people in the entire world. Will Big Brother stiff this Schaumburg, Illinois resident on the tip?
Michael “Cornbread” Ligon
Bio: Michael's nickname is "Cornbread," and he removes trees in Augusta, Georgia for a living, but it's yet to be seen if he'll be as good at removing floaters from the Big Brother house.
Bio: Hailing from Olive Branch, Mississippi, it looks like Monte could be a big physical threat in the house. If this engineering associate also manages to charm his way into a strong social game, Monte could prove to be a difficult opponent.
Bio: That's right, Big Brother: Over The Top is keeping the game in the family. Publicist Morgan Willett, hailing from Austin, Texas, is related to fellow Texan houseguest, Alex, according to Entertainment Tonight. The sisters are coming in with a strong alliance partner, but will they also be entering with targets on their back because of it?
Bio: Neeley is from Fort Worth, Texas and spends her days as a sales associate — making her a valuable asset who will hopefully be able to sell her ideas to keep her safe and bend the house to her will.
Bio: This Maine-based debt collector hopes to collect from Big Brother to the tune of a $250,000 grand prize. Scott may have a nerdy appearance, but if former winners Ian Terry (BB14) and Steve Moses (BB17) have taught us anything, it's that the geek shall inherit the Earth.
Bio: Shane Chapman works as a Roofer in Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, but that doesn't mean he won't blow the roof off of the Big Brother house on his way to becoming the first BBOTT winner.
Bio: Shelby Stockton is ready to state her case as to why she should be BB champion. If the other houseguests aren't careful, this recent law graduate from Simi Valley, California will (over)rule the Big Brother house easily.
Bio: Whitney is a medical assistant from the small town of Whitesburg, Kentucky. While that may not sound like an easy recipe for Big Brother success, remember that Season 18 was just won by an ER nurse from the small town of Ubly, Michigan. Could Whitney be the next Nicole?
With so many vibrant personalities and unprecedented access to the game, Big Brother: Over The Top is shaping up to be a can't-miss experience for Big Brother fans. Catch the premiere on CBS All Access this Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10 p.m. ET.
