This summer, BIG BROTHER will feature two new twists: for the first time on the series, three Houseguests will be nominated for eviction, and America will play an important role in the game by voting for the weekly "Big Brother MVP." Further details on both twists will be revealed during the season premiere.

America can begin casting their votes today for this season's first "Big Brother MVP" by visiting cbs.com/BBmvp to cast their vote. The site will include each Houseguest's BIG BROTHER strategy.

Following the premiere on Wednesday, June 26 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), BIG BROTHER will be broadcast three nights weekly, beginning Sunday, June 30 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Tuesday, July 2 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) and the LIVE eviction show, hosted by Julie Chen, beginning Wednesday, July 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT).

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 65 cameras and 98 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining House Guest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
