Expect the unexpected! The cast of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition was revealed on Sunday, January 28, ahead of the 2018 Grammys on CBS.
The houseguests include Omarosa Manigault, Brandi Glanville, Marisa Jaret Winokur, Keisha Knight Pulliam, Chuck Liddell, Metta World Peace (whose real name is Ron Artest), Shannon Elizabeth, Ross Matthews, Mark McGrath, Adriana Gutierrez and James Maslow.
As previously reported, the first-ever U.S. celebrity edition of Big Brother will last two and a half weeks, CBS announced on December 1. The highly anticipated winter season premieres on Wednesday, February 7 and the finale airs on Sunday, February 24. Luckily for fans, 13 episodes will air during that short period — and four of the episodes are each two hours long. However, the show will compete against the televised coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics, which kicks off in PyeongChang, South Korea, on Friday, February 9.
Like the original Big Brother, the concentrated celebrity run will feature the series’ signature Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions, as well as live evictions.
Julie Chen is set to return as the host.
Big Brother: Celebrity Edition premieres on CBS Wednesday, February 7.
