The Big Brother 12 cast was announced today, along with a (slightly) new twist for the house guests. This season there will be a saboteur in the house whose goal is to secretly wreak havoc on the other players. The identity of this mole will be revealed to viewers on July 15 and we'll be able to suggest tasks for him or her to complete. It's similar to the "America's Player" twist we saw in Season 8 (remember Eric?), but this time around the house guests will know from day one in the Big Brother house that there is a saboteur among them.
Let's meet the cast, shall we ...

We also got our first glimpse of the new Big Brother House today. The "house" is decorated in a Miami-inspired, art deco style including the requisite pink flamingos. Other highlights of the house include a queen-size bed to encourage romantic encounters, a cabana room for scheming, and a "have nots" bedroom that's so horrible they can't show us it yet. The most important detail of the house though: There's only one bathroom (with two sinks, one toilet, and one shower) for all 13 roomies to share. Hope they like each other!
Set your DVRS -- the new season of Big Brother premieres next Thursday, July 8 at 8 p.m.
