More than two years after Season 2 of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition (also known as Celebrity Big Brother) concluded with Tamar Braxton securing the jury vote, the show has officially been renewed.

CBS confirmed in September 2021 that the star-studded version of the popular reality series will continue with a third season. It will be hosted by Julie Chen Moonves, and it is set to debut on Feb. 2.

54-year-old model and TV personality Cynthia Bailey is joining the Big Brother family after previously starring in The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is sure to stir things up just as much as she does on RHOA, so we're eager to see her in the house.

Actor Todd Bridges, now 56-years-old is known best for his role as Willis Jackson in Diff'rent Strokes (1978-1986), although he more recently played Monk on Everybody Hates Chris. A comedic actor not to be reckoned with, we can't wait for him to bring the laughter.

Todrick Hall is the 36-year-old performer that made it big on RuPaul's Drag Race. He is a personality to be reckoned with and takes no prisoners, but is also lovable, open-minded, and generous. We will definitely be rooting for Todrick to excel in the house.

Chris Kattan is a 51-year-old comedian best known for being a cast member in Saturday Night Live from 1996-2011, a run that almost rivals Keenan Thompson. He most recently appeared as a contestant on The Celebrity Dating Game, so reality shows are nothing new to the hilarious impersonator.

Yes, this is the Chris Kirkpatrick from NSYNC. The now 50-year-old is one of the most beloved pop icons of the 1990s and 2000s. He also actually voiced the legendary Chip Skylark from The Fairly OddParents, who sang "My Shiny Teeth and Me." He loves making guest appearances in television shows, most recently on A Very Boy Band Holiday, so he'll definitely be fun to watch.

Emmy Award-winning TV personality Carson Kressley is also no stranger to reality television. Not only did he star in the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, but he also recently participated in The Celebrity Dating Game, like cast mate Chris Kattan. He's been on many "Celebrity" versions of reality shows, including The Apprentice, The Chase, and Dancing With the Stars, to name a few. We expect him to be a force to be reckoned with.

40-year-old Teddi Mellencamp is best known for her turn in three seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before she was fired. Putting two "housewives" in the Big Brother house will certainly make for great television, but will Teddi and Cynthia clash or match?

Shanna Moakler is the 1995 Miss USA, in addition to now being an actress and an ex-wife of Travis Barker. However, the now 46-year-old has still got it, and is plenty successful without the Blink-182 drummer as arm candy. Also no stranger to reality television, we can't wait to see her charisma take over the house.

The youngest contestant in this season of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition at only 28-years-old, it's a shocker that Mirai Nagasu is participating in this and not in the 2022 Winter Olympics. Mirai is a Japanese-American bronze Olympic medalist figure skater, who became known as the first American woman to land a triple axel at the Olympics. She is actually used to being the youngest — in 2008, at only 15-years-old, she became the second-youngest winner of the U.S. senior ladies title.

Miesha Tate is one of the best mixed martial arts champions still fighting, and is known for being the first fighter to escape Ronda Rousey's armbar multiple times. Now, she's the 35-year-old is the #8 women's bantamweight rankings. But she's not all fighting. She hosts "Throwing Down With Renee and Miesha" on Sirius XM, so with her on-air talents and fighting skills, contestants will want to think first before messing with her.

Anyone who's unfamiliar with NBA Champion Lamar Odom has some definite reading and watching to do. He's been on the scene for decades, and won championships in 2009 and 2010 for the Los Angeles Lakers. The 42-year-old is also well-known for his marriage to Khloé Kardashian from 2009-2016, as well as his appearances on KUWTK. He has since dealt with addiction to drugs and alcohol, and we expect his return to reality TV to be pretty entertaining.

The first season served as a counter program for NBC's broadcast of the 2018 Winter Olympics, and Season 3 is following suit with the 2022 Beijing Games.

Viewers can tune into the premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS. It will also be able to stream the show live or on demand with Paramount Plus.
