Big Brother Celebrity Edition: Omarosa, a Real Housewife Among Houseguests

Celebrity Big Brother Cast

Omarosa has effortlessly moved from the White House to the Big Brother house, as part of the cast for the CBS’ series first-ever celebrity edition.

In addition to the Apprentice alum/former Trump administration aide, the celeb cast includes Real Housewife Brandi Glanville, former Cosby kid Keisha Knight Pulliam, Tony winner Marisa Jaret Winokur, MMA star Chuck Liddell, Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath, former NBA All-Star Metta World Peace fka Ron Artest, Miss Universe 2015 Ariadna Gutiérrez, actress/poker pro Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), E!’s Ross Mathews and actor/singer James Maslow (Big Time Rush).

Some of the above are also familiar from turns on the Dancing With the Stars parquet floor, or even from the UK’s version of Celebrity Big Brother.

TVLine asked readers to predict the celeb cast; check back later this week to see who racked up the highest score and this collected 10,000 TVLine Power User points (never a cash value)! (It’s gonna take a lot of math and Matt-hours.)

CBS’ first celebrity edition of Big Brother launches with a three-night premiere event airing Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 8/7c, Thursday, Feb. 8 (from 8 to 10) and a two-hour live eviction show on Friday, Feb. 9 at 8 pm.

The special edition’s “concentrated run,” as previously reported, will include the reality competition’s signature Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions. Julie Chen will of course host.

Who if anyone are you rooting for from go? Or did this list actually underwhelm even compared to the most modest of expectations?
