Scaramucci is the second person from the Trump White House to be on the show, following Omarosa Manigault Newman last year. Of course, Scaramucci was in the White House for less than two weeks. Omarosa lasted a full year.
Last year’s cast included an Atlanta resident as well: Keshia Knight Pulliam, who lasted 13 days and was the second one out. She asked the cast to vote her out because she missed her one-year-old daughter. Actress Marissa Jaret Winokur won but comedian Ross Mathews was the most entertaining.
The show didn’t announce the cast until the celebrities were already in the house. Julie Chen will host again.
