It's July which means it's almost Big Brother time. The countdown to the premiere of Big Brother 14 is seven days. This is a big week as we have seen the house pictures and now we have a cast announcement today. CBS unveiled the cast earlier today which includes 12 new houseguests with one having a very familiar last name. There is also word that there will be four returning houseguests but there has no official announcement yet on who that is. This cast of newbies is a mix of all ages. Let's get into the biographies of who most of this new cast will include.
