It’s only been a month since we had Big Brother in our lives, with Jag Bains mounting a history-making win on the 25th season. But the reality summer staple is back with a brand new winter look, as it revealed the first two alumni contestants of the new spinoff Big Brother Reindeer Games.
Reindeer Games will involve nine previous Big Brother houseguests–including one from the recently-wrapped season 25–receiving an invitation from Santa to compete in a brand-new game. Over six installments, they’ll play in a variety of holiday-themed competitions. Each episode features three challenges, culminating in “Santa’s Showdown” which determines which player goes home at the end of that episode. The competition will winnow until four Big Brother legends remain. In the finale, one player will walk away with Santa’s blessing, and a $100,000 grand prize to boot.
Check out below to find out the first two returning houseguests competing on the show, and stay tuned to Parade.com for more information on the cast as it’s revealed.Big Brother Reindeer Games premieres with a special two-hour episode on Monday, December 11 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Big Brother Reindeer Games cast
Cameron just left our screens a month ago. One of the biggest competition beasts of the season, he won a number of clutch challenges, including one to return to the house. He got eliminated in ninth place and won America’s Favorite Houseguest for the season.
Taylor has one of the best stories of any Big Brother winner. The season 24 contestant went from nearly being the first one eliminated to surviving multiple instances of verbal harassment. Against the odds, she not only made it to the end, but won. She became the first Black woman to win an American civilian season, and the first winner to also win America’s Favorite Houseguest.
