Big Brother 17: Meet the Houseguests!

by at .  Updated at .

Big Brother 17 kicked off June 24 on CBS, and as usual, the 14 houseguests are already feeling each other out and forming alliances.

Leading up to the premiere, there's been a great deal of buzz surrounding Audrey Middleton, Big Brother's first transgender contestant.

Now that the game is on, Audrey's focus is on winning, not making history.

As usual, the new recruits were made to pose in their swimwear for press photos, so you can check out the semi-nude houseguests in the gallery below.

If you're the gambling type, now is the time to place your bet on who will win it all. If you're not, just scroll through and play your own game of bang, marry, kill.
