'Big Brother All-Stars' 2020 Cast: All The Contestants Rumored to Be Returning

Big Brother Season 22 is set to start on Wednesday, August 5 at 9 p.m. ET, when an all-star cast of former contestants will be entering the house. Who these housemates are is a closely-guarded secret, and will be revealed during the premiere episode of the 2020 edition of the show. However, this has not stopped fans of the franchise from doing some detective work to discover exactly who host Julie Chen will be welcoming into the house on the CBS show.

According to Chen, 16 houseguests are going into the house, with eight men and eight women returning from previous seasons. Fans have identified 19 former contestants who they think could be taking those places. The Big Brother Twitter and Instagram has also been posted quotes from some of the contestants.

However, who actually goes in could be down to the coronavirus. Though the castmates have been quarantined in the lead-up to Big Brother as a precaution, Chen told Us Weekly that, "we flew in a bunch of people, more than 16," she said. "And some people I thought were definitely going in the house, they tested positive for COVID-19 so they couldn't go in."

The rumored cast list for Big Brother Season 22 is as follows:

  • Amber Borzotra (12th place, BB16)
  • Bayleigh Dayton (11th place, BB20) – social media fans think that the Instagram quote reading "The first time I was on Big Brother, I was majorly distracted by a showmance" is hers.
  • Christmas Abbott (3rd place, BB19)
  • Cody Calafiore (2nd place, BB16)
  • Daniele Donato-Briones (2nd place, BB8, 8th place, BB13) – BB viewers think she said the Twitter quote, "I've played Big Brother twice before. My winning strategy is to remain as agile as possible."
  • Danielle Reyes (2nd place BB3, 6th place BB7)
  • David Alexander (16th place, BB21)
  • Da'Vonne Rogers (16th place, BB17 and 11th place, BB18) – users think she said "It's a new day and I can't wait to play," as seen on the Big Brother Instagram.
  • Enzo Palumbo (3rd place, BB12)
  • Ian Terry (winner, BB14)
  • Janelle Pierzina (3rd place, BB6, 3rd place, BB7, 12th place, BB14) – now a realtor, fans think she said the quote "I look at the Big Brother House as a business deal right now. It's a three-month business deal that I need to close."
  • Kaycee Clark (winner, BB20)
  • Kayser Ridha (10th place, BB6, 10th place, BB7)

  • Nicole Anthony (3rd place, BB21)
  • Nicole Franzel (7th place BB16, winner BB18)
  • Tyler Crispen (2nd place, BB20)

One contestant we know who is not returning is Big Brother 19 winner Josh Martinez. After he was rumored to have tested positive for the coronavirus, he wrote on Twitter, "There's been a lot of speculation about me being on this season of big brother Allstars. I can say that I will not be on this season. Many rumors have been said in the past few days about me that I couldn't address but to be clear my health is great."

He followed this with a tweet reading, "Don't believe everything you read online most of the rumors about me have been false. To be honest I'm bummed that I'm not on but couldn't be more grateful with everyone over at CBS for always being so great, supportive, & being part of completely changing my life for the better."

Big Brother Season 22 starts with a two-hour live move-in special on Wednesday, August 5 at 9 p.m. ET.
