As host of American Ninja Warrior, Matt Iseman is no stranger to competing on celebrity versions of reality shows. In fact, he was the winner of the most recent Celebrity Apprentice season. But will he have the same success if he enters the Big Brother house.

After years of legal drama and negative press—and a failed comeback on OWN—Big Brother might be Lindsay’s last shot at redemption. The chaos of the house will at least make her relevant again. In fact, she’s already returned to the public eye, recently stopping by The Wendy Williams Show.

The comedian and former Saturday Night Live cast member could very well come face-to-face with some of the celebrities he’s mocked through the years. That may be awkward, but Moynihan is a self-described Big Brother superfan, and even appeared in the most recent season to host a competition. His sense of humor would either be his strength or his downfall.

Given how much drama Blac Chyna stirred up while engaged to Rob Kardashian—and giving birth to his child—it should be no surprise she’s in consideration. After the relationship fell apart on social media, Chyna sued Rob and the Kardashian family. Clearly no stranger to drama and attention, the former video vixen should fit right in.

As former White House Press Secretary, Spicer clearly has no problems being in the spotlight. In September 2017, he poked fun of himself at the Emmy Awards, which may have given him the bug to continue his 15 minutes of fame in another format.

Samantha “Sweetheart” Giancola
She’s the sweetest b**ch you’ll ever meet—and she may just be back on our TV screens. The Jersey Shore alum, best known for her tumultuous relationship with co-star Ronnie, may be finding herself in a whole new house of drama. And given that she isn’t part of the Jersey Shore reunion, it’s possible she was already committed to another reality show…

The brother of Ariana Grande is the most familiar with the Big Brother house: he competed as a contestant in Season 16, where he placed fifth. He wasn’t very popular with the fans, but Frankie’s experience on the show would be an advantage should he compete again.

Tiffany is a reality TV staple, having gained her notoriety from shows like VH1’s Flavor of Love and I Love New York. She’s even competed in a celebrity version of Big Brother before—the UK version, in which she finished fourth. If she enters the US house, she has a shot at making it far.

Ross knows how to wrangle celebrities: He’s spent years on shows like The Tonight Show, E! News, and Chelsea Lately. This experience with sometimes difficult personalities could make him strong enough to win, should he join the cast.

At just 25 years old, Tomi Lahren has made a name for herself as one of the most outspoken—and controversial—female political commentators. Her strong right-wing views and her blunt personality could lead to major disagreements and drama in the house.

The inclusion of any political affiliates shouldn’t come as a surprise. After making controversial comments while serving as Trump’s Director of Communications, Scaramucci was fired after only 10 days serving, making history as the short tenure for that position. Will his potential stay in the Big Brother house last longer?

From her comedy sketches and political advocacy, Margaret has never been afraid to express her opinion, and that makes her a prime candidate for a spot in the Big Brother house. Margaret has also appeared on other reality shows, such as Celebrity Family Feud. Her critiquing of political problems would be sure to make her a hot topic in the house.
Since news broke in September that a celebrity version of Big Brother would finally be arriving in the US in 2018, the rumor mill has been nonstop.
From reality stars to political pundits and actresses, a number of stars are rumored to be packing their bags to move into the Big Brother house. And no matter who ends up in the final cast list, it’s sure to be two-and-a-half weeks filled with alliances, competitions, and, duh, drama.
