CBS REVEALS THE IDENTITIES OF THE 16 NEW HOUSEGUESTS COMPETING IN THE FIRST WINTER EDITION OF "BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART"

First Ever All-Single Cast and the Most Houseguests in "Big Brother" History

Ninth Installment Premieres Tuesday, Feb. 12th

Julie Chen Returns As Host

Love Is In The Air As An All-New "Big Brother: 'Til Death Do You Part" Creative Twist Is Revealed

CBS today revealed the identities of the 16 Houseguests who will compete in BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART, as well as the new creative twist that will play out during the first-ever winter edition, which premieres Tuesday, Feb. 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT).

This season marks other BIG BROTHER firsts, including the first-ever all-single cast and the most Houseguests in BIG BROTHER history.

When this group of 16 singles enters the house, they will be told they are being matched up with their "soul mate," a stranger who may prove to be their true love or their worst nightmare. Whether there is a love connection or not, once paired up, the Houseguests' life in the game depends on their partner. They must strategize, plot and scheme together as a couple for a chance at the prize. These "lovebirds" will live together as a couple meaning they will sleep in the same bed, hold Head of Household as a couple, be nominated for eviction as a pair, and if the time comes, say their goodbyes together upon eviction.

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week the Houseguests will vote each other out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguests will receive the Grand Prize of $500,000 and a second place prize of $50,000.

BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART debuts Tuesday, Feb. 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Following the premiere, BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART will be broadcast three nights weekly, on Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) beginning Feb. 13 and Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) beginning Feb. 17. Julie Chen returns as host. The live weekly eviction broadcasts will be Wednesdays, with the first eviction on Wed., Feb 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT).
