Willie Hantz, who is originally from Vinton Louisiana, will be one of the next contestants trying to win a half a million dollars on CBS's hit reality show "Big Brother" set to air July 12th. The information the TV show released says Willie is originally from Vinton but currently lives in Dayton Texas and works as a Tankerman.

The Hantz family is no stranger to reality shows. Willie's older brother Russell Hantz appeared on the CBS reality show "Survivor".

Every summer, Big Brother host Julie Chen warns viewers to expect the unexpected, but this year the game will really be turned upside down as 12 brand-new houseguests move in with four returning all-stars who aren't necessarily after the $500,000 grand prize.

"Four epic players - including fan favorites and winners - are coming in with their own agenda," teases executive producer Allison Grodner. "It's a game within a game, if you will." While the identities of these returning players and their goal are still under wraps ("It's not people from last season," Grodner insists), fans will notice a familiar name within the 12 new house guests.
