The reviews are in, and “Big Brother” Season 16 ranks as one of the most predictable seasons ever. Thanks to the Bomb Squad taking control of the house week after week, we can tell who’s going home from a mile away. And since predictability can lead to boredom (and low ratings), we have an idea for how CBS can make this season more exciting for viewers at home: Bring back former winners!

Many of these previous champs know how to make good TV and can show this group of houseguests how to keep things interesting. CBS should let them take control for a week or two — maybe as coaches, maybe as challenge hosts, or heck, maybe even as full-fledged players in the running again for the $500,000 prize. The question is, which “Big Brother” winners do you want to see return to the house to shake up the game? (Vote in our poll below.)
