Relatively young contestants are gathered for the 11th edition of "Big Brother", with the oldest one being 41-year-old. Twelve strangers with different personalities will have to stand each other when they live under one roof for a number of days. A 13th mysterious guest will be added later to give an advantage to one of the cliques.
This time the House Guests will learn that they will be 'kickin it old school' way, high school to be exact. They will be shocked to learn that they will play the game in one of four familiar high school cliques - popular, athletes, brainiacs and off beats. They will compete for food, safety from eviction and luxury prizes as part of their clique.
"You may have graduated, but the truth is we never leave high school and this summer we are going to prove it," said Executive Producer Allison Grodner. "From the brains to the jocks to the off-beat, everyone will be able to identify to one of these cliques, giving the viewers a group to root for and against from the very beginning. The division will cause instant drama."
"Big Brother 11" premieres on Thursday, July 9 at 8/7c. It will then be broadcast three nights weekly beginning Sunday, July 12 at 8/7c, Tuesday, July 14 at 9/8c and Thursday, July 16 at 8/7c. The eviction night is held on Thursdays and broadcast live.
