The cast for Season 3 of Celebrity Big Brother has just been announced, and it includes loads of familiar faces for Bravo fans.
Notably, there will be not one but TWO Real Housewives alums in the new season of Celebrity Big Brother: Cynthia Bailey and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Cynthia was a longtime cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, appearing in Seasons 3 through 13, while Teddi spent three seasons as a cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Season 8 to Season 10), making a guest appearance in the most recent Season 11.
Cynthia and Teddi both showed their excitement over joining the Celebrity Big Brother cast following the announcement on January 26. "Let the backstabbing begin!" Cynthia proclaimed in a promo announcing the Celebrity Big Brother Season 3 cast, in which Teddi also declared, "I'm ready to play!"
"Y’all, I am about to go ALL IN on the #BBCeleb house this season!" Teddi also tweeted. "It’s gonna be a good time."
The women have also received a lot of support from their loved ones on their next adventure, including Cynthia's husband, Mike Hill, who gushed on Instagram, "My baby @cynthiabailey is in The House!!! Check her out & support her on [Celebrity Big Brother]. Win baby!!!"
Meanwhile, Teddi seemed to be having much less fun while quarantining by herself in her hotel room before this season of Celebrity Big Brother begins.
Cynthia and Teddi won't be the first Housewives to compete on Celebrity Big Brother. RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville was a houseguest in Season 1, previously appearing in the U.K. version in 2017, while RHOA's Kandi Burruss was part of the Season 2 cast. Brandi and Kandi finished in seventh and fifth place in their respective seasons.
Celebrity Big Brother Season 3 will also feature another Bravo alum: Carson Kressley, who was part of Queer Eye's original Fab Five and later starred with Thom Filicia in the interior design series Get a Room with Carson & Thom. "I"m gonna make over this whole place," Carson said in a promo for the new season of Celebrity Big Brother, before adding, "When I'm not busy backstabbing and conniving."
Of course, they're not the only names you'll recognize in the Celebrity Big Brother Season 3 cast. Cynthia, Teddi, and Carson's fellow famous houseguests include actor Todd Bridges, entertainer Todrick Hall, Saturday Night Live alum Chris Kattan, NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick, actress and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, Olympic medalist Mirai Nagasu, former UFC champion Miesha Tate, and NBA champion Lamar Odom.
