The (Leaked) Cast of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ USA Includes 2 Queer People and a Gay Icon (Updated)

UPDATE: We’ve since found out this isn’t the official Celebrity Big Brother cast! Go find the real cast here!

Imagine our shock when we discovered that the cast of Celebrity Big Brother USA, set to air on CBS starting Feb. 7, had been leaked ahead of schedule.

CBS and Big Brother host Julie Chen (wife of network head Les Moonves) had planned to announce the Celebrity Big Brother cast following this Sunday’s Grammy Awards, but it looks like someone on the network’s side didn’t play by the rules.

But regardless of who leaked the cast, we couldn’t be more excited! Not only is there a gay person included on the roster of “celebrity” houseguests (yes, we use that word loosely), but there’s also a trans woman and a gay icon! (And yeah, we’re using “gay icon” pretty loosely, too.)

Naturally the house will be full of reality TV stars … with an athlete thrown in for good measure.

This is the very first edition of Celebrity Big Brother USA, though Celebrity Big Brother has aired for quite a few seasons in the UK.

Check out the (leaked, so still potentially up-in-the-air) cast of Celebrity Big Brother USA:

 

1. Lance Bass

The former boy-bander (and we’ve heard superfan of Big Brother) will be the first openly gay contestant on Celebrity Big Brother USA. He also competed on Dancing With the Stars here in the States.

 

2. Gigi Gorgeous

The world’s most famous trans YouTube star made a name for herself with makeup tutorials back in the day, and now she’s a household name with nearly 3 million followers.

 

3. Tiffany Pollard

The gays love this brash reality TV vet, better known as “New York,” who first graced our small screens on Flavor of Love. She also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK, where she placed fourth.

 

4. Johnny Bananas

This guy is a serious vet of MTV’s reality TV programming. He has appeared on The Real World, The Challenge and Vendettas.

 

5. Andrea Boehlke

She appeared on three seasons of Survivor.

 

6. Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola

You know (and love?) her from MTV’s Jersey Shore, and we can’t wait to see what she’s like in a house with Ron!

 

7. Beth Chapman

The wife of Dog the Bounty Hunter previously struggled with a throat cancer diagnosis, but she’s reportedly cancer-free!

 

8. Matt Iseman

If this guy looks familiar, it’s probably because he’s the host of American Ninja Warrior, though — interestingly enough — he’s also a physician and comedian! He also won last year’s Celebrity Apprentice (not that we watch that Trump-produced trash.)

 

9. Terrell Owens

He’s a former NFL star (for those of us gays who don’t watch sportsball) and also appeared on Dancing With the Stars.

 

10. Brody Jenner

It’s been a hot minute since Brody has been on a reality TV show (he was previously on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and The Hills), but the son of Caitlyn Jenner appears ready to step back into the spotlight.

 

What do you think of the leaked Celebrity Big Brother USA cast? Sound off in the comments.

    New York from flavor of love? Okay I’m gonna have to watch.

  • Nigel Bradley

    So… reality TV stars on a different reality TV show. Meh. Was hoping for something better.

  • Steven Still

    Decent cast with the exception of Andrea from Survivor. Why on Earth would they waste a celebrity spot on her, when they can literally put her on any regular season of Big Brother as a twist or something….she doesn’t even qualify as a celebrity even in the reality world. They should have brought back a Big Brother Legend instead of her, like Will Kirby. Stupid

  • TheTruthWillSetYouFree003

    I suspected that it would be a bunch of C list celebrities. Instead they’re mostly G listers. I’m not going to waste my time on this crap.

  • Chuck

    Who watches this shit, I just don’t get it

  • Devon Massengill

    are you seriously so stupid you expected Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and Brad Pitt to be on the show?

  • TheTruthWillSetYouFree003

    No I’m not. But apparently you are so incredibly stupid that you consider Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and Brad Pitt to be C listers. DUH!

  • Dianne Lauf

    It will be a great season. Good mix of personality types.
