Celebrity Big Brother spoilers indicate, as expected, that CBS ran a brand-new promo during the 2018 Grammys that revealed the 10 houseguests to play Big Brother: Celebrity Edition. The photos of all 10 celebs flashed by at rapid-fire pace, but savvy watchers could see familiar faces, and it’s even better than the leaks and rumors. There are more actual celebrities than expected. Here’s a look at the roster of the 11 (not 10!) houseguests for Big Brother: Celebrity Edition.
Official CBB US Cast Revealed
As Julie Chen said in a recent promo, the players will run from athletes to actors and in between those two. With the Wednesday, February 7, debut of CBB US starting in a little more than a week, everyone is ready to see how this short-run season will last of the first-ever “celebrity” edition of the show. Whether this cast list is made of celebrities depends on your definition of the word, but Julie Chen and executive producer Allison Grodner warned that there would not be A-list celebs coming into the house.
Several of the celebrities from the leaked cast list issued denials, but that’s standard industry practice because confirming without permission from the network might incur a legal or financial penalty. Expect lots of responses from the celebrities now that the cast list is official since they shouldn’t be on PR lockdown anymore!

Celebrities Playing For Cash, Not Charity
As the Inquisitr reported, these “celebrities” are not playing to benefit any charity, which is expected from shows like Celebrity Apprentice. The 11 houseguests will be playing for a $250k prize plus bragging rights. On the UK version of Celebrity Big Brother, the houseguests also play for money and not philanthropy.
Updated Schedule for Big Brother: Celebrity Edition
In addition to the regular airdates, here’s what you need to know about the start-up schedule. On Tuesday, January 30, there’s an official house tour where Big Brother fans can see the entire house. Then on Wednesday, January 31, the celebrities enter the house. They’ll be in there with no live feeds turned on for a week. The premiere is a week later on February 7 and CBS All Access Live Feeds should go live after the first episode airs on the West Coast.
Now that you know the 11 houseguests, what do you think? Are you ready for the Wednesday, February 7, premiere of CBB US?
