(Fwrd Axis) — With just seven days to go until Celebrity Big Brother returns, CBS announced its cast for the third season on Wednesday, filled with former athletes, real housewives, and reality stars.
CBS dropped the case during an episode of The Amazing Race. The competition this season includes former NBA player Lamar Odom, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp, singer/influencer Todrick Hall, the less famous member of boyband *NSYNC, Chris Kirkpatrick, Diff’rent Strokes actor Todd Bridges, former Saturday Night Live star Chris Kattan, and UFC fighter Miesha “Cupcake” Tate.
Julie Chen Moonves returns to host the spin-off celebrity edition, which returns to screens for the first time in three years. The show last aired in 2019 with four-time Grammy nominee Tamar Braxton taking home the $250,000 prize. Tony-winning actress Marissa Jaret Winokur won the inaugural season back in 2018.
The season premieres on February 2 and will run for exactly three weeks with its finale airing on Feb. 23. The show is being used as “alternate” programming for the Winter Olympics, which will run for the entire month of February on NBC.
