Celebrity Big Brother casting spoilers hint Caitlyn Jenner, Sean Spicer, and Tonya Harding. A CBS insider leaked a list of the alleged contestants for CBB US 2 and it spread across Twitter like wildfire.
Celebrity Big Brother Cast List Leaks
A Twitter user that claims to be a CBS insider tweeted a cast list for Celebrity Big Brother on Sunday. While it is not confirmed that the following list is official, the names on it make sense due to other recent spoilers from Real Vegas. There are eleven names, which coincides with the number of celebs that participated in CBB last year.
The official Celebrity Big Brother cast announcement should be released mid-January. Therefore, this gives CBS enough time to sequester the stars for a few days, and then start the game and battle for the $250K grand prize.

Each Celeb Has Background in Reality Television
Most, if not all of the stars on the leaked CBB US casting list have a background in reality tv. For instance, Aubrey O’Day is a singer from girl band Danity Kane. She appeared on reality shows like Celebrity Apprentice and the UK’s Celebrity Big Brother 18.
Bobby Moynihan is a huge BB superfan who made an appearance on season 19 of Big Brother to hassle the houseguests. He was thrilled that he got to go into the Big Brother house and sit in the Diary Room so he should be a skilled competitor.

Athletes and the Avant Garde
Another rumored cast members is Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner. She is known for her appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and several spin-offs of the show including her own reality show about her transition from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn.
Calvin Johnson, former NFL wide receiver, finished in third place on Dancing with the Stars season 23. So maybe he could fox trot his way to BB victory. He should do well in physical challenges.
Television personality and designer Carson Kressley comes with plenty of experience in reality. He was a designer on Queer Eye, a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, and even a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Mean Girls Tie-in for Celebrity Big Brother
Lindsay Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan, and her entire family consists of reality show pros. Diana starred in her own show called Living Lohan and a documentary series entitled, Lindsay. This momager knows how to handle herself in front of the cameras.
Another that may be on CBB US has a link to Dina Lohan. Jonathan Bennett starred in Mean Girls as Aaron Samuels alongside Lindsay Lohan so he and Dina are pals. Plus, he’s also been on Cake Wars and Dancing with the Stars.

Politics and Family Pedigrees
Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer might be the only one on here with no prior reality television experience, but he is no stranger to drama. His name made headlines plenty of times while he worked at the Trump White House and BB fans clamored to see him on the show.
Stephen Baldwin is another UK CBB alum, and the actor and producer also did a stint on Celebrity Apprentice. His daughter Hailey Baldwin recently married Justin Bieber. And his brother Alec Baldwin has his own show – and is always on TMZ for brawling so that family pedigree is legit.
Tiffany Pollard is no stranger to this kind of show and is a veteran in the reality world. Her pedigree is long. We first met Tiffany Pollard, aka New York, as a contestant on Flavor of Love. She was such a reality sensation she earned her own spinoff I Love New York, and was also on Famously Single and UK CBB. Pollard is another that Big Brother fans were dying to see on the celebrity version of the show.
Olympics Villain Headed to BB House?
Lastly, figure skater Tonya Harding is rumored to be in the celeb house. She won third place on Dancing with the Stars and also appeared on a game show called The Weakest Link.
The disgraced Olympian is known to be emotional and volatile and could really amp up the cast. Plus her name is in the headlines again with the hit movie I, Tonya catapulting her back into the conversation.
Is This Celebrity Big Brother Cast List the Real Deal?
Fans are split on whether or not the leaker is a reliable source and remain divided. Last year, a leaked cast list turned out to be totally bogus. The only thing confirmed as of right now is the Julie Chen is back to host.
This is a relief to longtime fans who feared that Julie Chen would not be returning. We’ll keep you alerted with updates on the official cast list once it comes out. Be ready for the start of CBB US as it premieres January 21 – and the celeb houseguests are due to enter the lockdown this week!
