Anthony Scaramucci, the short-lived White House communications director, is among the cast on the next season of "Celebrity Big Brother", CBS announced on Sunday. One competitor will be eliminated each week and the victor will receive $250,000 in prize money.

Other roommates will include Anthony Scaramucci, Joey Lawrence, Kato Kaelin, Tom Green, Jonathan Bennett, Lolo Jones, Natalie Eva Marie, Ricky Williams, and Tamar Braxton. Simpson houseguest Kato Kaelin and Dina Lohan when the show's second season premieres on January 21.

For at least one former White House staffer, there is life after Donald Trump. Omarosa Manigault Newman, who worked in the White House until December 2017, made it as far as the Season 1 finale of Celebrity Edition in 2018, just a few months after she was unceremoniously fired from her government role.

Former The Talk co-host Julie Chen Moonves will once again emcee all the action at the Big Brother House containing 94 high-definition cameras and over 113 microphones.


During her time on the show, Manigault-Newman compared the houseguests to White House staffers, claiming they all wanted to "stab [her] in the back".

At one point last season, Omarosa gave a shoutout to Scaramucci while on the show, and he returned the favor in a February 2018 tweet.

Before his brief tenure at the White House, Scaramucci founded and operated hedge funds in New York City, and has served as a political consultant for politicians of both major parties. "I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for Donald Trump's agenda".

Scaramucci did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.
