- The US version of “Celebrity Big Brother” first aired on CBS in 2018 and it’s now in its second season.
- In “Celebrity Big Brother,” houseguests play to win money for a charity of their choice.
- The finale airs tonight on CBS.
The second season of “Celebrity Big Brother” kicked off in January on CBS and a fresh wave of house guests checked in for their month-long stay. Tonight, one competitor will take home a generous prize of $US250,000. But who’s in the finale this season and who’s already gone home?
Here’s who’s competing in the “Celebrity Big Brother” finale as well as who’s already been evicted from the house.
Warning: Major spoilers ahead.
Kandi Burruss has been on reality TV many times and now she’ll also be in the finale of this season of “Celebrity Big Brother.”
Kandi Burruss is from the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and has starred in a series of miniature Bravo spin-offs like “The Kandi Factory,” “Kandi’s Wedding,” and “Kandi’s Ski Trip” – so clearly she’s no stranger to having all eyes (and cameras) on her.
Burruss also co-wrote the 90’s R&B girl group TLC’s hit single “No Scrubs,” and if the lyrics to the independent woman’s anthem are any indication, this woman knows what she wants, and how to get it.
Ricky William is a professional football player who made it to the final five.
Ricky Williams is a retired NFL legend who ESPN considered “one of the best Dolphins running backs to ever suit up.” Unfortunately his accomplishments – like winning the Heisman trophy and rushing upwards of 10,000 years in his career – have been sometimes overshadowed by his use of marijuana that landed him on the suspension list for an entire year, as per ESPN’s reports.
Dina Lohan is one of the original “momagers” and she’s competing in the finale.
Dina Lohan is most famous for being Lindsay Lohan’s mum and will probably go down in history as one of the first “Momagers” in Hollywood. According to IMDB, Lohan also made a cameo on a special episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” in 2011 when she attended the nuptials of Kim and Kris Humphries.
Lolo Jones has competed in winter and summer Olympics and now she’ll be competing in the “Celebrity Big Brother” finale.
Lolo Jones is one of the few Olympians who’ve competed in both the summer and winter games.
Tamar Braxton is a musician and TV personality who’s competing in the finale.
Tamar Braxton is a singer, songwriter, reality TV personality, and former co-host of the daytime talk show “The Real.” She now stars on WE TV’s “Braxton Family Values.”
The rest of the houseguests were eliminated from the house before the finale including Tom Green, the comedian who was the last houseguest evicted before the final five.
Tom Green is a Canadian comedian, but if you haven’t seen any of his stand up acts, you might know him as Chad from “Charlie’s Angels,” or Drew Barrymore’s ex-husband. You may also remember “The Tom Green Show,” a ’90s comedy series where Green pulled pranks. Green was also fired by Donald Trump during the eighth season of “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Green was the last person evicted before the finale.
Natalie Eva Marie has been in the ring and on TV.
Natalie Eva Marie is a Jane of all trades. The former female pro wrestler has dabbled in acting, fitness modelling, and fashion design, but you likely recognise her from the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) ring or the show’s unscripted spin-off “Total Divas.”
Marie was the fifth person evicted from the game.
Kato Kaelin was an eyewitness during a famous trial.
Kato Kaelin started as an American actor in the ’80s, but you’d probably know him best for his role as an actual eyewitness during the OJ Simpson murder trial.
Kaelin was the fourth person evicted from the game.
Joey Lawrence has been in a few notable shows.
To 80’s kids everywhere, Joey Lawrence will forever be known as heartthrob Joey Russo on “Blossom,” but the eldest Lawrence brother has starred in a handful of sitcoms from NBC’s “Brotherly Love” alongside his real-life brothers Matthew and Andrew in the mid-90s, to Freeform’s “Melissa and Joey.”
He also came in third place during the third season of “Dancing With The Stars” back in 2006.
Lawrence was the third person evicted from the game.
Ryan Lochte is an Olympian.
Ryan Lochte is a six-time gold medalist on the United States Olympic swim team. People called him the second most decorated swimmer in history, but he’s also among the most controversial swimmers.
In August of 2016 The New York Times reported that during his time at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Lochte and a few of his US teammates had been robbed by locals in Brazil when, in reality, the swimmer had been “drunk and unruly,” damaging property at a gas station after a party.
Although the 34-year-old is suspended from swimming until July of 2019, according to ESPN, you might’ve caught Lochte on season 23 of “Dancing With The Stars.”
Lochte was the sec0nd person evicted from the game.
Jonathan Bennett was in “Mean Girls.”
Bennett is best known for playing Aaron Samuels in the 2004 hit comedy “Mean Girls.” Following his role as Regina George’s high-status man candy, Bennett hosted “Cake Wars” and “Halloween Wars” on The Food Network, placed ninth on season 19 of “Dancing With The Stars,” and made a cameo in Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” music video.
Bennett was the first person evicted from the game.
Anthony Scaramucci was recently in the White House.
In and out seems to be Anthony Scaramucci’s style these days. Otherwise known as “The Mooch,” Scaramucci is a New York financier who served as the White House Director Of Communications under President Trump for less than 10 days before being fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Scaramucci’s time in the “Big Brother” house was even shorter than his time at the White House, though. Coming into the game as a special twist, The Mooch told Entertainment Weekly his quick cameo was a “straight-up, well-planned twist for the show,” one he thinks is “probably one of the more bigger, historical twists where somebody that everyone thought was a houseguest slipped out in the middle of the day.”
Scaramucci was a “fake houseguest” who left the game on day six.
