Where Are The Celebrity Big Brother Season 1 Houseguests Now?
STREAM: Catch Up On Celebrity Big Brother Season 1
From TV stars to teen heartthrobs and sports superstars, the first season of Celebrity Big Brother was full of big personalities—and, thankfully, being back in the real world hasn't slowed them down one bit!
Marissa Jaret Winokur
Known for her bubbly personality, big hair, and a penchant for wearing cat ears, Marissa was the first-ever Celebrity Big Brother champ, taking home the $250,000 grand prize after outlasting 10 other Houseguests.
Even though the Broadway star's time inside the BB house came to an end, she wasn't done with the world of Big Brother.
Along with runner-up Ross Mathews (more on him below), Marissa spent her summer hosting the official Big Brother Season 20 after show, Off The Block With Ross And Marissa:

And, of course, she's super hyped for the new cast of Celebrity Big Brother.

Being runner-up and winning America's Favorite Houseguest is an impressive Big Brother achievement, especially for a superfan like Ross.
The TV personality continued his love of Big Brother—which started way back during BB Season 1—by hosting Off The Block alongside bestie Marissa for the duration of BB20.
Big Brother hasn't been the only thing keeping Ross busy, of course, as he received a GLAAD Award in late 2018:
And course, he's still spending plenty of time with his beloved doggos:
The controversial TV personality Omarosa remains in the spotlight since exiting the BB house, thanks to the release of her tell-all book about her time inside the White House, but she hasn't forgotten her Big Brother fam.
In fact, she swung by the finale of Big Brother 20 to hang with the whole cast:
And she's certainly excited for the upcoming season of Celebrity Big Brother, too:
Brandi Lynn Glanville
The outspoken, no-filter Brandi continues strong in her BB fandom after being a Season 1 Houseguest, and was excited for the premiere of Big Brother 20:
Not to mention, she's still hanging out with a former housemate:
I have soooooooo much makeup on but since I’m going to a drag show to hang with my love @helloross I think I will be ok!! Serious bad hair day for me but it’s time to celebrate my bff Nathan’s bday— Brandi Glanville (@BrandiGlanville) December 15, 2018
More importantly, though, Brandi continues to share her thoughts on life, love, and liquor on social media and proves, time and again, that she's the realest of the real:
Every single day I get a call about my student loan I didn’t go to college and I went to public high school I block the number every day but they call from a new number I’m losing my mind— Brandi Glanville (@BrandiGlanville) October 22, 2018
Sat on Sunset for an hour to go .3 miles I wanted to scream— Brandi Glanville (@BrandiGlanville) July 25, 2018
Same, Brandi. Same.
Fan-favorite Celeb HG Mark is keeping busy playing music with his band Sugar Ray, and even played a show with fellow BB alum/musician Paul Abrahamian in the fall:
Truly a special show tonight at The Rose Theater in Pasadena, thank you all for joining us and showing how much this music means to you...much love to @deadskulltweets and @VanaldenMusic for sharing the stage with us! pic.twitter.com/DOyIhd2xfF— Mark McGrath (@mark_mcgrath) November 4, 2018
But music hasn't kept him from staying up to date on Big Brother; he even chimed in when a former notorious Houseguest had something to say about the first eviction of BB20:
Mark even joined Marissa to guest co-host Off The Block one week, talking with two-time BB20 evictee Scottie Salton:
As for Mark's workout pal/bro, James, since leaving the BB house he's been keeping up his rigorous exercise routine when he's not recording new tunes:
30 min into my workout and I’m just now waking up! Push through. Catch up on that sleep later— James Maslow (@jamesmaslow) July 25, 2018
Not only has the teen heartthrob been recording some new music, he's also spent some quality time with his dad in Las Vegas!
What a weekend. So grateful. Also exhausted. Catch you all up tomorrow on the crazy week my dad and I are about to have in Vegas!✌🏼— James Maslow (@jamesmaslow) September 24, 2018
Metta World Peace
Metta's journey through Celebrity Big Brother was unforgettable thanks to his unique gameplay—remember when he thought he was voting for someone to stay in the house?—and his ability to deliver some hilarious soundbites.
If you follow the NBA legend on Twitter, you'll know he's still delivering the goods:
Basketball is a simple game.— Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) October 14, 2018
Put the ball in the hoop
Even months removed from the BB house, Metta's fondness for Orwell the owl is fresh in everyone's mind:
Speaking of Orwell the owl, he's got another former Houseguest looking back on their time together quite fondly—none other than Celeb BB sweetheart and beauty queen Ariadna:
Me being weird as always😂🤣 pic.twitter.com/8PiKQTJTh8— Ariadna Gutierrez (@gutierrezary) March 24, 2018
As a self-professed BB superfan, Shannon was targeted early on in the game by those she considered her allies, but her short-lived stint in the BB house hasn't hampered her enjoyment of trying new things.
Like traveling all over the world, for instance:
Since exiting the BB house, Chuck has since climbed back into a different sort of confined space, one with which he's far more familiar: the UFC Octagon!
He was also affected by the wildfires in California, but thankfully he and his family evacuated and are safe and sound:
We successfully evacuated our home with our kids, our dog, and some clothes. Im happy i made it out with the things that matter the most to me. The rest we will figure out later. All i have is respect and appreciation for all the fighter fighters working for us right now— Chuck Liddell (@ChuckLiddell) November 10, 2018
Keshia Knight Pulliam
Since her dramatic and emotional exit from the game to be closer to her newborn baby, Keshia has been enjoying all the joys of motherhood after her stay inside the Big Brother house.
How will the new celebrity HGs adapt to life in the Big Brother house? Will they take any strategic cues from their predecessors?
Don't miss the two-night premiere event of Celebrity Big Brother on Monday, Jan. 21 and Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 8/7c on CBS CBS All Access.
