CBS Reveals ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ Cast And It’s Pretty Epic (Update: Video Promo)

If the Winter Olympics aren’t your thing, CBS is offering up some guilty pleasure alternative viewing. The network is airing its first every celebrity edition of Big Brother. The cast was just unveiled and it’s pretty epic.

No doubt, the most fascinating addition is former White House employee and two-time Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault. I’m almost terrified to see what kind of hell she’s going to inflict on viewers and cast members? Can you imagine the torture of living with her?

I know one contestant who’s not going to put up with her crap and that’s Brandi Glanville. Man, these two are going to bring it and deliver some pretty epic catfights. Other cast members I’m excited to see in this environment include James Maslow, Mark McGrath and Ross Matthews. Check out the entire cast list below. Several of them have competed in other celebrity reality shows including Celebrity Apprentice and Dancing With The Stars.

Big Brother: Celebrity Edition premieres Wednesday, February 7. Julie Chen will host the “concentrated run” which will include the show’s signature Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions, as well as live evictions.
