They're all South African. They're all outspoken.
They will live together in a specially constructed house, completely isolated from the outside world, watched 24/7 by viewing audiences across the country.
Each week housemates will nominate each other for eviction.
The housemates who get the most nominations will have to survive a viewer vote. If they don't, they're evicted out of the game instantly.
Only the last person remaining at the end will take home the mega jackpot of R2-million.
Along the way Big Brother, that infamous and legendary character at the centre of it all, will no doubt be introducing his own twists and turns into the game.
Given that this is a 100% South African version of Big Brother, and South Africa has 11 official languages, housemates can speak in any of these languages although Big Brother himself will primarily communicate in English.
The new season aims to be the hottest yet.
In addition to the 24-hour channel (DStv 198), daily shows and weekly highlights, this year features the return of Shower Hour.
There will also be Friday game nights, Saturday night parties hosted with Channel O featuring the hottest DJs and, of course, the twists and turns of Sunday night evictions.
This season sees a new host in Lawrence Maleka, replacing Lungile Radu from the first two seasons.
