TV Watch Big Brother
Big Brother fans know to expect the unexpected, but they also know to expect a little skin during summer's hottest reality competition.
And in it's eighteenth season, Big Brother is heating up with a brand new "game-changing" weekly competition that will debut on Sunday's episode – and PEOPLE has exclusive photos of the houseguests mid-comp.
Summer is here, which means it's time for Big Brother fans to rejoice!
Leading up to Wednesday's premiere episode, CBS revealed the new batch of houseguests. But a season of Big Brother wouldn't be a season of Big Brother without some twists.
How much is a ticket to the gun show?
That appears to be the question on Frankie Grande's mind when he should be focused on the home gym he's bidding for on The Price Is Right.
"I'm so distracted right now," Ariana Grande's brother says in an exclusive sneak peek at The Price Is Right's upcoming primetime special as fellow former Big Brother contestant Jessie Godderz and Price Is Right model James O'Halloran show off their bulging biceps.
Caleb Reynolds is a married man.
The 28-year-old Army veteran and Big Brother star, who recently competed on Survivor, tied the knot with fiance Ashley Jay on April 30 in Cadiz, Kentucky. About 150 guests attended the rustic barn-style wedding.
Jonathan Cheban has left the building.
This season of Big Brother was a summer of showmances, from southern sweethearts Clay Honeycutt and Shelli Poole going steady (they only kissed once, you guys) to Liz Nolan overcoming her aversion to tuna fish-filled pony-beards and becoming Austin Matelson's new girlfriend.
But despite his best efforts and impressive scare tactics, James Huling stayed squarely in the friend zone with Meg Maley – until now.
Maley, 25, appeared on PEOPLE Now on Friday to discuss her experience as a house guest, and the conversation naturally turned to her number-one ally.
Last October, Big Brother winner Dick Donato came forward to PEOPLE with a very personal revelation: He is HIV positive.
The disclosure, which also aired on VH1's Couples Therapy, shocked fans who wondered why Donato had been removed from a previous season of Big Brother.
But Donato, 52, says that some good come out of his revelation, and many of his fans have been inspired to get tested and start practicing safer sex.
So 10 months after going public, how is daily life for Donato?
Even though he didn't take home the $500,000 prize, Frankie Grande won America's hearts on Big Brother.
His run on the reality competition's 16th season included hiding the secret that Ariana Grande is his sister, single-handedly winning a Battle of the Block when Caleb abandoned him and stabbing ally Zach Attack in the back when needed. Oh, and he threw a lot of glitter.
So what does he think of this season's house guests?
"I think Vanessa's the only one who's really playing the game," he tells PEOPLE of the poker champ from Las Vegas. "I think everyone is just kind of aimlessly throwing darts at a board and hoping that they stick. But I am looking forward to hopefully some more game play in the future and some big moves. We'll see what James does this week, I'm excited."
Big Brother has had its share of memorable, controversial, and noteworthy contestants. Now, in the show's seventeen season, the CBS reality competition will welcome its first transgender houseguest.
Audrey Middleton – a digital media consultant from Villa Rica, Georgia – is a self-described "Big Brother super-fan" who plans to "make bold moves" while competing in the house.
Middleton will reveal to her fellow houseguests that she is transgender on the show's season premiere Wednesday night, and here are five other facts you should know about the 25-year-old:
