The first CBS edition of "Celebrity Big Brother" now has houseguests. The "concentrated run" won't go on for months, like the summer seasons; instead, it'll air for 13 nights -- starting Wednesday, February 7 -- serving as counterprogramming to NBC's Winter Olympics.

The cast members -- or at least 11 of them, is one more coming? -- were revealed during the 2018 Grammy Awards:

• Omarosa Manigault, "The Apprentice" alum who recently left Donald Trump's White House in *dramatic* fashion.

• "American Pie" actress Shannon Elizabeth

• Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath

• "The Cosby Show" star Keshia Knight Pulliam

• "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast member Brandi Glanville

• Former NBA star Metta World Peace

• UFC light heavyweight champ Chuck Liddell

• "Big Time Rush" actor/singer James Maslow

• Tony-winning "Hairspray" actress Marissa Jaret Winokur

• TV personality Ross Matthews

• Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez


Those names should be familiar to reality TV fans, since most of them already competed on "Dancing With the Stars" or "The Celebrity Apprentice." (Sorry to not see professed "Big Brother" fan Bobby Moynihan on the list.)

This shortened celeb edition of "Big Brother" will still include Head of Household and Power of Veto comps, as well as live evictions and the usual 24/7 live feeds at CBS All Access (and Twitter).

"Celebrity Big Brother" starts with a three-night premiere event airing Wednesday, February 7 at 8 p.m. EST, Thursday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m., and a two-hour live eviction show on Friday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m.

Who has your early odds to win the $250,000 grand prize, and who will be evicted first?
