Tonight, the Big Brother: Celebrity Edition cast was named for the first time! This happened during the 2018 Grammys on Sunday night, which is something that show host Julie Chen set up and promised as a big reveal ahead of time.
The promo was a REALLY quick flash of some of the contestants, so we’ll be updating this as we figure out more of the names. Here’s what we have based on some of the screen-grabs. If something changes, we’ll be sure to update this article a little bit later.
Shannon Elizabeth – American Pie actress, known for an arrow of different projects.
Chuck Liddell – Famed fighter. He should make for a pretty fun inclusion into this season. We wouldn’t want to compete against him in pretty much anything.
Omarosa – Yep, it looks to be a thing. If she gets booted, will it be as entertaining as how she supposedly left the White House?
Ross Matthews – Red-carpet correspondent and occasional talk-show host. He’s going to bring a LOT of personality in there.
Brandi Glanville – Speaking of which, there are probably going to be tabloids watching her every move in there pretty intently. She’s a former star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Marissa Jaret Winokur – Former Hairspray star and Dancing with the Stars contestant.
Metta World Peace – We were promised a basketball star — call him Metta or call him Ron Artest. It really doesn’t matter all that much.
Keshia Knight Pulliam – Former star of The Cosby Show and frequent reality TV contestant in general.
Mark McGrath – Singer of Sugar Ray fame. He’s been on a LOT of reality TV over time. (Recurring theme?)
Ariadna Gutierrez – Former Miss Colombia, who was infamously crowned for a few seconds as Miss Universe over Miss Philippines. This fits the beauty-queen tease.
James Maslow – Big Time Rush singer.
A lot of these cast members you’ve seen before on Dancing with the Stars or The Celebrity Apprentice — did you really think that we were going to see a ton of fresh faces join this fracas?
This cast does mean that many of those rumored names turned out to be false — which shouldn’t be a shock given that 90% of internet rumors turn out to be just that.
