The cast of Big Brother 18 will be revealed Monday, June 13, but some last-minute spoilers may give us a better idea of what to expect. Earlier reports suggested there would be four returning players alongside a group of newbies, but it seems as though the seasons of the returning HGs may have been right, but the names were wrong.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains potential Big Brother 18 spoilers.

The initial report was that Ian Terry, Derrick Levasseur, Audrey Middleton and Vanessa Rousso would be back. However, alternate names have recently surfaced from Big Brother Canada‘s Jordan Parhar, a well-connected member of the show’s community. They are also two men and two women from seasons 14, 16 and 17.

The latest batch of potential returning HGs are:

-Season 14’s Fan Favorite Frank Eudy
-Season 16’s Nicole Franzel
-Season 17’s Da’Vonne Rogers
-Season 17’s Fan Favorite James Huling

These names seem more plausible than the first group as they don’t consist of major winners or people who’ve said explicitly they would not return. It’s also a group of HGs who were very popular with the fans, so their returns would be well received. None of them made it too far into the competition (Da’Vonne was evicted in week 2 while the other three all finished in seventh place), giving them all a fair second shot at redemption.

In addition, the early rumor that two of the new HGs will be related to former players has remained prevalent, with two names popping up: Vanessa Rousso’s sister Tiffany, a psychology Master’s student, and Cody Calafiore’s even hotter brother Paul (try not to drool on your keyboard while scrolling through his Instagram). Those two seem like solid casting choices, especially if Paul is half as flirtatious as his brother. The bigger question would be whether the returning players recognize them, especially since the newbies’ siblings played against some of those veterans.

As always, these spoilers are far from gospel, but we’ll learn soon enough if they’re true. Big Brother 18 premieres Wednesday, June 22 at 8pm on CBS.
