With the new season of Big Brother just two days away, many experts and former players have picked their early favorites from the new bunch of houseguests.

Big Brother 14 winner Ian Terry picked Judd Daughtery to win it all this summer on Big Brother 15. Terry tweeted some of his early favorites Monday morning, including Helen Kim, McCrae Olson, Nick Uhas, Andy Herren and Jessie Kowalski. He said he's picking Judd to take home the $500,000 at the end of the summer.

Season 10 winner (and season 14 runner-up) Dan Gheesling revealed his top three houseguests he was endorsing for the upcoming season. Like Terry, he is picking Helen and McCrae as early favorites as well as Aaryn Gries. Gheesling said that he was basing his picks on what the houseguests said their strategy would be going into the house, noting that McCrae is not taking it too seriously, Helen's political background and Aaryn's end game strategy as standouts.

Survivor contestant turned reality TV podcaster Rob Cesternino picked Andy to win it all this season. Cesternino did a cast analysis during his podcast on Friday and narrowed his three favorites down to Andy, Helen and Candice Stewart before singling out Andy as his pick to win. 

Big Brother 4 winner Jun Song didn't make winner predictions but indicated which contestants she'll be rooting for this summer. She included Andy, Helen, Jessie, Amanda Zuckerman and Spencer Clawson as early favorites. She praised Helen and Spencer's intelligence and Andy, Amanda and Jessie's potential entertainment value.

Based on these predictions, it seems that Andy and Helen are the consensus favorites with McCrae in contention. Andy and Spencer have the most "likes" on the official cast page on CBS.com with Aaryn and McCrae close behind.

With these favorites being singled out early, they may be the first contenders for the Big Brother MVP twist, which allows America to vote for the houseguest with the best strategy. The first MVP winner will be announced during the premiere on Wednesday.

Big Brother 15 will premiere on Wednesday, June 26 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
