Anthony Scaramucci - the former White House Director of Communications whose tenure was so brief (just 11 days!) that his name is now a synonym for short-lived employments - will be taking his political fast-talk to the house. One competitor will be eliminated each week and the victor will receive $250,000 in prize money.
Scaramucci will be joined in the house by actor Jonathan Bennett, singer Tamar Braxton, singer Kandi Burruss, comedian Tom Green, Olympian Lolo Jones, OJ Simpson trial figure Kato Kaelin, actor Joey Lawrence, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, "Momager" Dina Lohan, wrestler Natalie Eva Marie, and former National Football League running back Ricky Williams.

"Celebrity Big Brother" follows a group of modestly recognizable figures living together in a house filled with cameras and microphones picking up their every move. Omarosa Manigault Newman, who worked in the White House until December 2017, made it as far as the Season 1 finale of Celebrity Edition in 2018, just a few months after she was unceremoniously fired from her government role.
She wrote a tell-all about her time at the White House called "Unhinged" and released a tape of then-Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her.
