Big Brother returns to CBS this summer for the show's 19th season and, as always, viewers should expect the unexpected.

This season's cast is filled with some notable personalities that are all competing for the Big Brother grand prize.

The new contestants like Alex Ow, Josh Martinez and Raven Walton, whose inspiration for the game is Frankie Grande from season 16, will be going head to head all summer.

What does the winner get?

After living inside a house with total strangers for several weeks during the summer, the winner of Big Brother gets a pretty handsome cash prize of $500,000.

Over the course of the season, the houseguests will battle it out in Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions and, one by one, say goodbye until there is only one person left.

Watch the season premiere of Big Brother on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern on CBS.
