Celebrity Big Brother Cast Includes Omarosa Manigault and Brandi Glanville

With the premiere date only a few weeks away, we finally know which stars will be competing in the first U.S. season of Celebrity Big Brother.

CBS revealed the cast on Sunday during the Grammys and we have to say, it's a pretty wild lineup. Moving into the Big Brother house for the first time are former Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Brandi Glanville, Apprentice villain/former White House aide Omarosa Manigault, American Pie actress Shannon Elizabeth, Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath, TV personality Ross Mathews, former NBA star Metta World Peace, Cosby Show alum Keshia Knight Pulliam, Big Time Rush's James Maslow, Miss Colombia from Miss Universe 2015 Ariadna Gutierrez, Hairspray star Marissa Janet Winokur and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell.

Of the cast, only two houseguests haven't either competed on Dancing with the Stars or Celebrity Apprentice (Mathews and Gutierrez). Will this season turn into Team DWTS vs. Team Apprentice? We don't know, but we do know which side we'd be rooting for in that instance.

To accommodate the stars' busy schedules, the season won't be the full three months. Instead, the season will premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 7 and wrap up two-and-a-half weeks later with a Sunday, Feb. 25 finale. The season will typically air four episodes each week, with two-hour episodes on Fridays.

Although many things are changing for Celebrity Big Brother, superfans can still expect to catch all the action on the live feeds. So if you want to see what these celebs are like 24/7, we suggest you sign up for CBS All Access now.
