Former Saints RB Ricky Williams Joins ‘Big Brother’ Cast
The next season of "Big Brother" will be a celebrity edition.
At least one former Saint won't be watching the epic run toward the Super Bowl. It's been said that former Saints running back Ricky Williams has already been sequestered for "Big Brother: Celebrity Edition" that debuts on CBS on January 21st.
You may have missed the cast announcement as it was made as the Saints were preparing for their victorious game against the Eagles yesterday (Jan. 13).
Contestants on "Big Brother" are put in a custom built house under constant surveillance, but without contact from the outside world. Each week one contestant is "evicted" from the house. So, the former running back won't know the outcome of the NFC championship game for sure. And depending on how well he does in the house, he may not know the outcome of the Super Bowl.
Williams “Big Brother” housemates will include former Trump White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci; Dina Lohan, the mother of Lindsay Lohan; comedian Tom Green; former WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie; actor Joey Lawrence; actor Jonathan Bennett; Olympian Lolo Jones; Olympian Ryan Lochte; reality figure Kandi Burruss; singer Tamar Braxton; and the former O.J. Simpson house guest, Kato Kaelin.
The tweet that let us know that he was already sequestered read as such:
"Ricky is under lock and key w/ @cbs_bigbrother!," the Twitter message read. "His wife @linneamiron will be posting updates while he is off social media. You know who his future roommates are but he doesn’t yet!"
Good luck to the former Saint!
