“Celebrity Big Brother” does not premiere until February 7 on CBS, but fans of the series already want one infamous reality TV villain booted. In a recent poll we asked our readers which of the 11 new houseguests they hope will be the first evicted. Omarosa, the disgruntled former White House staffer and twice-fired contestant on Donald Trump‘s “The Apprentice,” won the poll in a landslide, earning 60% of the votes. Gold Derby reader Sherry summed up what most fans were thinking with her comment, “Throw Omarosa out, just like the White House did!”
Omarosa has been the most hyped houseguest in early commercials for the first USA celebrity edition of “Big Brother.” She rose to fame by unleashing her sharp tongue and competitive nature on “The Apprentice” before Trump hired her as a member of his Presidential campaign and administration. After leaving the White House (or being dragged out), Omarosa told ABC’s “Good Morning America” she has “quite a story to tell.” Let’s hope she dishes some dirt and stirs up a little drama before she’s inevitably sent packing!
Coming in a distant second place in our poll was the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” drama queen, Brandi Glanville, with 9% of the votes. TV host Ross Matthews was next with 7%, followed by “American Pie’s” Shannon Elizabeth (5%) and former Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez (4%). Tied with just 3% of the votes were UFC fighter Chuck Liddell, Big Time Rush singer James Maslow and former NBA player Metta World Peace. Only 2% hope “The Cosby Show’s” Keshia Knight Pulliam, Tony Award-winning “Hairspray” star Marissa Jaret Winokur or former Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath are evicted first.
“Celebrity Big Brother” premieres February 7 and concludes February 25 on CBS, opposite NBC’s Olympics. Julie Chen once again returns as host. Who do YOU think will win? Give us your early predictions down in the comments section.
