The CBS Big Brother 14 cast has officially been announced! CBS has released the first official Big Brother 14 cast photos, profiles and videos of the new houseguests. The network also revealed a major new twist for the new Big Brother 2012 season and it is something never before seen in the show.

A while back, CBS let slip that the Big Brother 14 cast would be the biggest in the history of the show. Since the previous record number of houseguests was 16, that meant this season should have at least 17 Big Brother 14 houseguests.

In the official Big Brother 14 cast list revealed on Thursday morning, fans were given the dish on 12 new houseguests… and found out that there will be 4 returning players for the Big Brother 2012 season as well. Hmmm. That still only adds up to 16 players, which would only tie the highest number of houseguests ever, but perhaps CBS still has another twist waiting in the wings for us…

Regardless, we are intrigued by what seems to be quite the interesting lineup of new Big Brother 14 cast houseguests this year, including a Playboy Playmate and the brother of infamous Survivor villain Russell Hantz. Yes, that’s right, Russell Hantz’ brother is in the Big Brother 14 house. Here’s the short rundown on the new Big Brother 14 cast for you below, and you can check out the full profiles for the new houseguests, as well as some great exclusive interviews with each of the cast members, at our partner site
