The Big Brother casts have always been known for their outrageous characters and big personalities, but last season the show also became known for scandal.
After season 15 contestant Aaryn Gries sparked a controversy by making racist remarks, the entire house was placed under a more-scrutinized microscope, and several contestants were let go from their jobs.
And the season 16 contestants – including Ariana Grande's half brother Frankie – understand more than ever that America is watching (and judging) their every move.

Ariana Grande is used to paparazzi following her every move, but now her half brother Frankie is the one who will have cameras on him 24 hours a day as a contestant on the new season of Big Brother.
"I've always said I was funny and I should have my own reality show," Frankie, 31, tells PEOPLE of what inspired him to audition for the CBS reality competition's 16th season. "And then I thought, 'Maybe I should be on somebody else's show!' "
While he initially auditioned for Survivor, a chance meeting with a Big Brother casting director led to Frankie becoming one of the 16 contestants competing for a $500,000 prize this summer.
Big Brother has had cast members with notable relatives in the past – former Survivor super-villain Russell Hantz's brother Willie and Big Brother season 13 winner Rachel Reilly's sister, Elissa Slater, both competed in previous seasons – but Frankie is actually more worried about being recognized as a YouTube personality than as a Grande.
"I don't want people knowing I have an online following because it will put an unnecessary target on my back," says Frankie, who has a YouTube channel with more than 185,000 subscribers and nearly 10 million views. "If there is an America's Vote or America's Player, they might assume that I will win it."
