Hopkinsville Man On CBS' "Big Brother"

An upcoming season of a CBS reality show will feature a current Hopkinsville resident. On Thursday, CBS announced the cast for Big Brother 16, which includes Caleb Reynolds, of Hopkinsville, and formerly of Cadiz. Justin Reynolds, of Cadiz, was surprised his little brother made the final cut.

Competition for the show is tough.

There are actually 16 houseguests who will live together 24 hours a day in the Big Brother house, isolated from the outside world but under constant surveillance with no privacy for three months. Surveillance will include 76 high-definition cameras and more than 100 microphones as Houseguests compete for the chance to win $500,000 by avoiding weekly eviction. Justin says he thinks Caleb's personality will serve him well in the competition.

Caleb graduated from Trigg County High School in 2007 and joined the Army, serving for one year as a prison guard in Iraq. Caleb now works as an adventure hunting guide for his family's hunting business. He also auditioned for The Voice earlier this year. Caleb says in a CBS interview that if he wins, he'll give at least part of the $500,000 prize to his brother's church in Cadiz. Big Brother premieres Wednesday, June 25, at 7:00pm.
