"" has welcomed the houseguests of season 13 on Thursday, July 7. Eight contestants - Adam Poch, Cassi Colvin, Dominic Briones, Kalia Booker, Keith Henderson, Lawon Exum, Porsche Briggs and Shelly Moore - introduced themselves early in the episode.
Host Julie Chen then dropped the bomb, telling them to pair up. Keith immediately asked Porsche, and she agreed, prompting Dominic to say, "Keith, you're not picking a prom date." Cassi teams up with Shelly, Dominic and Adam pair up, leaving Kalia and Lawon as the final pair.
