Survivor We’re a couple weeks into the new Survivor season, and I’ve been enjoying it so far. I didn’t have high hopes about the Island of the Idols twist. And I’m still not totally on board with it. The cast so far has been really […]

Here’s what I think about the Celebrity Big Brother Cast

Here’s what I think about the Celebrity Big Brother Cast

After a successful season of Celebrity Big Brother last year, CBS said, “Hey, why not do this again!!” Because these days, if a TV show gets good ratings, a network goes all in. It started as something to combat the Winter Olympics, but it continues to be a good filler during a Television off-season.

It seems like with this cast they are looking to fill some of the roles they had last year – A Real Housewife, a former child star, a washed up athlete, and a White House firee.

There are some people that I don’t know so I can’t comment on them – Natalie Eva Marie, Kato Kaelin and Kandi Burruss. Sorry guys.

Here’s how I feel about the rest of the cast:

Ricky Willams – I don’t actually know him, but my friend Colin had this to say: “He was famously so averse to cameras he would keep his helmet on during locker room interviews so the BB house should be a real treat”. Okay then.

Anthony Scaramucci – A former Trump staffer that I definitely got mixed up with Sean Spicer when the cast was first announced. I don’t really need another season of someone talking about how shit Trump is to work for. No duh! We got a lot of hot goss from Omarosa last season, so I can only assume that’s what they’re going for with the Mooch.

Dina Lohan – People like to say that Kris Jenner was the OG Momager – mais non my friends, it was Dina. With Lindsay re-entering the world of reality TV this month, it only makes sense that Dina is back too. I can see her having a very Brandi-esque time in the BB house.

Ryan Lochte – Since dummy got banned from swimming, he needs some way to make some money so why not Celebrity Big Brother?? I can see him accidentally stumbling his way to the end without knowing how he got there.

Joey Lawrence – I definitely KNOW who Joey is, but I’m not really sure where I know him from. He’s arguably best known for his role in Blossom, which was before my time. He could be great or terrible. What a ringing endorsement, eh?

Lolo Jones – I’ve been following Lolo Jones for a long time. She was one of the biggest stories surrounding the Olympics for a while, partially for her virginity, partially for her chokes on the biggest stage. I also watched her on The Challenge: Champs vs Stars where she was fantastic television. She’s not someone everyone is going to like in the house, but I am excited to see her here.

Tom Green – I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a Tom Green movie, but he’s Canadian and that’s all that matters.

Tamar Braxton – I know Tamar from being impersonated by Roxxxy Andrews on Drag Race and also from being a judge on Drag Race. She is always a lot of fun on that show, so she should be a firecracker here.

Jonathan Bennett – We all know him from Mean Girls, and more recently the new Ariana Grande video. But also you should know him from various cupcake competition shows on the Food Network. He seems pretty personable and will be able to go under the radar. I also think he might be our Big Brother Celeb Super Fan for the season. I will leave you with this tweet from my friend Taylor.
