Scaramucci Joining Celebrity Big Brother

Postado Janeiro 14, 2019

Olympic champion swimmer Ryan Lochte and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci are among the cast announced for the second season of "Big Brother: Celebrity Edition".

The show follows a group of celebrities living together in a house outfitted with over 80 HD cameras and 100 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day while they have no contact with the outside world. One competitor will be eliminated each week and the victor will receive $250,000 in prize money.

Scaramucci - known as "The Mooch" - will join Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, former National Football League star Ricky Williams, one-time O.J. Julie Chen, who has hosted the show since it was created in 2000, will return for season two, set to premiere on January 21 at 8 p.m. ET. Details about Big Brother: Celebrity Edition's Season 2 schedule can be found here.

For at least one former White House staffer, there is life after Donald Trump. 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.

Scaramucci, the financier-turned-Trump whisperer, was infamously the White House's communications director for a whirlwind 11 days in July 2017. "I sometimes use colorful language", he wrote on Twitter in 2017. The former Apprentice contestant also gave a shout out to Scaramucci last season and he tweeted back: "Always liked Omarosa always will".
