AceShowbiz - Here are the new faces that will compete in the upcoming 18th season of "Big Brother". CBS has revealed 12 of the 16 contestants along with their pictures. While they are all new players, some of the names sound familiar because the cast includes two siblings of former players on the reality competition series.
One of the Houseguests is 50-year-old former police detective Glenn Garcia, who now makes a living as a dog groomer. A Bronx native, he describes himself as "small, big and great." He enjoys playing with his daughter, deep-sea fishing and traveling.
There's also Tiffany Rousso, the younger sister of season 17's contestant Vanessa Rousso. A high school teacher in Florida, the 32-year-old brunette describes herself as "passionate, smart and sincere." Her life motto is "Live with urgency."
Paulie Calafiore, 27, is a DJ from Howell, NJ. A self-described driven, passionate and quick-witted person, he believes "a comfort zone is a wonderful place, but nothing ever grows there." He's also the older brother of season 16's runner-up Cody Calafiore. Bronte D'Acquisto, a 26-year-old student, lives in Denver, CO. She loves to solve math problems consisting of calculus, statistics and probability.
Zakiyah Everette, 24, is a preschool teacher in Charlotte, NC who enjoys dancing, modeling, cooking, eating and any form of designing or creating. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, 26-year-old Natalie Negrotti is an event coordinator who lives in Franklin Park, NJ. The "athletic" and "beautiful" woman loves painting, cooking, baking, eating, napping, shopping, getting dressed-up and doing her nails among other things.
Victor Arroyo, 25, is a gym manager from Slidell, LA. A "smart, sexy and fit" guy, he loves women and admits that he's "always looking for the next girl to talk to" and he's "never satisfied" with what he has. Bridgette Dunning, a 24-year-old traveling nurse who lives in Ventura, CA, loves to "practice yoga, run, bake, read sci-fi books, go out with friends and go to comedy shows."

Another fit contestant, Michelle Meyer, 23, works as a nutritionist. A self-described quirky and bubbly woman, she prefers to "be underestimated" because "I want to be smarter than people think I am, stronger than people think I am, etc. It gives you the upper hand!" The twelfth contestant, Paul Abrahamian, is clothing designer from Tarzana, CA. The 23-year-old "thrill seeker" enjoys the outdoors, "like the woods and mountains."
There's a rumor that some returning players will join the 18th season, and with four spots left to fill it appears that the report is true. "Big Brother 18" kicks off Wednesday, June 22 at 8 P.M. on CBS.
