Former 'Big Brother' players to return for 14th season
“Big Brother” has unveiled 12 of its houseguests for the 14th season and also revealed a new twist.
For the first time, four alumni from the “Big Brother” game will re-enter the house to play their own game and compete for their own unrelated prize. The four returning players and details of their mission will be revealed during Thursday’s 9 p.m. season premiere. Julie Chen returns as host.
In the meantime, CBS has released the identities of the 12 new contestants, who will vie for the $500,000 grand prize. The six men and six women range in age from 21 to 42 and include a chef from Indiana, the former bass player of an all-female metal band, a nurse and an engineering student from New Orleans.
“Big Brother” will air three times a week following the premiere — at 8 p.m. Sundays and Wednesdays, with the live eviction show airing at 9 p.m. Thursdays — beginning July 15.

‘Days of Our Lives’ favorite Eileen Davidson to return
NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” is welcoming back another fan favorite.
Ms. Davidson will reprise the character she played from 1993 to 1998 starting Oct. 11. Kristen, the foster daughter of Stefano DiMera, was presumed dead after a body matching her description was found floating in a pool. The real Kristen, however, was left on an island after being sold to a harem.
“I’m thrilled to embark on this new adventure at ‘Days’ and excited to revisit Kristen and who knows who else! Not to mention my old friends in the cast and crew,” Ms. Davidson told the Hollywood Reporter, with a nod to the many alter egos she’s taken on over the years on the series.
Ms. Davidson, who had been playing Ashley Abbott on “The Young & the Restless,” becomes the latest “Days” fan favorite to return to the soap, which premiered in 1965. Kristian Alfonso inked a new deal in May to remain in her role as Hope and Charles Shaughnessy and Lisa Rinna also returned to the series this year.
