Admit it…Big Brother on CBS is your secret guilty pleasure. And, like this author, you have been endlessly waiting for the announcement of the so-called “celebrities” competing in the third season of Celebrity Big Brother. The wait is over, as the Eye net officially unveiled the roster during The Amazing Race.

The 11 contestants in contention are…in alphabetical order…The Real Housewives of Atlanta personality Cynthia Bailey, former child star Todd Bridges (Diff’rent Strokes), American Idol season 9 semi-finalist turned YouTube star Todrick Hall, SNL’s Chris Kattan, NSYNC bandmember Chris Kirkpatrick, Queer Eye’s Carson Kressley, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills personality Teddi Mellencamp (yes…John Mellencamp’s daughter), Playboy playmate Shanna Moakler, Olympic figure skater Mirai Nagasu, NBA great/reality star Lamar Odom, and former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate.

Mirroring parent Big Brother, which has been a summer staple on CBS for 20 years, the goal on Celebrity Big Brother is to cohabitate together while competing to see who can stay in the house the longest without being voted out. Only in Celebrity Big Brother, the pace is accentuated, with the typical three-month season on Big Brother translating to only a mere three weeks here. All 11 individuals — the usual mixture of reality and social media stars, athletes, personalities from yesteryear, and fame seekers all looking to extend (or reboot) their “15 minutes” — are now in the house competing.

Celebrity Big Brother officially begins Monday, February 2, with the first of 15 episodes of friendships and feuds, competitions and backstabbing, and everything in between, in the quest to be crowned by host Julie Chen Moonves on February 23rd as the winner.

Let the reality competition shenanigans begin!
