The “celebrities” just announced for CBS’s “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition” are usually the kind of fringe characters that are ridiculed in shows of their kind: actors, singers and comedians who have not been particularly busy lately , Relatives and Relatives House guests of the rich and famous and a number of personalities from the world of sport. There is also a former communications director of the White House.
But we can say we have at least heard of most. Of the twelve celebrities announced at the weekend, three or four are sports stars: former NFL player Ricky Williams, Olympian Ryan Lochte and Lolo Jones, and possibly former WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie, depending on whether you believe that WWE Wrestling one is sport.
Some are of the variety of “celebrities after unification” – Kato Kaelin appears here, and Dina Lohan is on board (crew is referred to as “Momager”).
Anthony Scaramucci, aka “The Mooch,” the financier who had a brief and tumultuous lead in 2017 as communications director for the Trump White House – perhaps the most famous person in the house -.
Throw in Tom Green, Joey Lawrence, Tamar Braxton, Kandi Burruss, and Jonathan Bennett … and it will be a lot of fun because why would one of them hold back?
It’s the second season of “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition” and will be premiered on Monday and Tuesday, January 21st and 22nd, with a two-night event. House guests will fight for a grand prize of $ 250,000.
