CBS' 'Big Brother' To Bring Back Four 'Epic Players': [ send to a friend ]
CBS has revealed that the upcoming season of 'Big Brother' will bring back four past contestants -- but they won't be after the $500,000 grand prize.
"Four epic players — including fan favorites and winners — are coming in with their own agenda," says executive producer Allison Grodner. "It's a game within a game, if you will."
Grodner says the returning players will be playing for their own separate prize, without elaborating on what that may be
"It's not people from last season," she explains. "But the truth is, there are some people we love to watch, and it will be interesting to see how they handle coming back."
The cast includes a metal musician, house flipper, restaurant server, bartender, nurse, chef and a model.
The names also include Willie Hantz, a tankerman who is the younger brother of 'Survivor's notorious all-star Russell Hantz.
Hantz's nephew was a recent castaway on Survivor and at this rate we may soon see Grandma Hantz on a CBS reality show.
'Big Brother' will return on July 12 and keep its schedule to three nights a week.
