When Big Brother kicks off it's 21st season next Tuesday (June 24) on CBS, there will be 2 New Jersey residents living in the house and competing for a $500,000 grand prize.

Nick Maccarone is a 27-year old therapist from Sewell, NJ in Gloucester County.  On his bio page at CBS.com, Maccarone describes himself as, "Outgoing, caring, and talkative."  He also notes that he voted "Most Talkative" in high school.

Monmouth County resident Christie Murphy is a 28-year old boutique owner from Staten Island, NY.  She now lives in Keyport, NJ.  Murphy mentions her dog, Beans, several times on her CBS.com bio page.  She also says that even though she is gay, she plans on using her "femininity and charm to easily persuade and subtly manipulate the men (in the house)."

In addition to Maccarone and Murphy, there is one other BB21 contestant with ties to New Jersey.  Isabella Wang is a public health analyst from Los Angeles, but her hometown is listed as Mt. Olive, NJ (Morris County).
