The 13 people who will compete for one million this year include a model, a gay college professor, a bisexual woman, a deputy sheriff and a high school swim coach.
"Big Brother" has announced the cast of season 12, introducing among others, a 24-year-old model who never cleans and a 34-year-old college professor who would use all his "gayness, for good and evil".
The princess is named Monet Stunson. "I come off as really sweet and innocent. People won't expect that I would lie to their face and stab them in the back to win," she said. The educator is named Ragan Fox. "I party as hard as I work, and I grew up gay in Texas. If you want to get crazy with me - and I opt to go crazy - then you're in trouble," he said.
The other bunch of characters include a single mom who has survived cancer, a bisexual girl who wants to keep her orientation a secret and a web designer who calls himself a "genius".
"We have hot guys this summer," Allison Grodner, executive producer of the show additionally said. "We have Haydon from Arizona, a snowboarder, baseball player, all-around just single, nice guy. We've got Brendon, who is our high school swim coach, and also getting his PhD."
The 12th season starts July 8. Contestants will be locked inside a house for three months straight with no communication with the outside world. One will be eliminated each week and the ultimate winner will take home 1 million dollar prize.
