CBS has revealed the houseguests who will compete on the new season of Big Brother this summer. The Big Brother 19 cast features 16 new faces including one of the oldest HGs in the show’s history, a rodeo clown and a female NASCAR pit crew member named Christmas.

The one thing that stands out about this cast is that it’s far older than usual. There are six people over 30 and only five who are under 25. Half of the men are over 30, including Kevin, who at 55, is the third oldest HG in the show’s history (the two older than him are season 10’s Jerry and season 4’s Jack).
