We’re all looking forward to the first episode of Celebrity Big Brother season 2 tonight, especially because it will involve Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett.

Bennett, who was revealed as being part of the US Celebrity Big Brother 2019 cast by CBS earlier this month, played Aaron Samuels in the hit 2004 film, opposite Lindsay Lohan.

The actor, who most recently starred alongside Alexa Penavega in the 2018 Hallmark film Christmas Made To Order, will join Lindsay’s mother, Dina Lohan, in the house when the show starts on Monday (January 21).

The second season of Celebrity Big Brother will run for 13 episodes before concluding on February 13, when the winner of the $250,000 prize will be revealed.

That new champion will take the crown from Celebrity Big Brother 2018 winner Marissa Jaret Winokur.

We hope that answers some of the questions which many people have searched online in recent times, namely: who did Jonathan Bennett play in Mean Girls? and how long is Celebrity Big Brother? as well as: who won Celebrity Big Brother 2018?

As well as Mean Girls, Bennett has also starred in Lovewrecked, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.

The star, who was born in Ohio, most recently caused a stir when he appeared in the music video for Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next,” reprising his role as Aaron Samuels.

He referenced the film during the video, telling the audience: “One time, Ariana Grande told me my hair looks sexy pushed back. She’s not wrong.”

Who is on Celebrity Big Brother 2019?

Bennett and Lohan are just two of diverse Celebrity Big Brother cast made up of stars from a variety of different fields.

Actor Joey Lawrence rose to prominence as Joey Russo in 1990s sitcom Blossom before appearing alongside his brothers Andrew and Matthew Lawrence in Brotherly Love.

But modern audiences will perhaps know him best as Joe Longo from comedy series Melissa and Joey, which ran for four seasons before ending in 2015.

Anthony Scaramucci comes to Celebrity Big Brother after spending 10 days as White House Director of Communications in July 2017.

The enigmatic financier and political consultant gained a reputation as a hothead after telling a journalist that White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was “trying to suck his own c**k.”

We’ll have to wait and see if he blows up in the same way in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Actor and host Kato Kaelin (real name Brian) will also be a houseguest this season. He came to be well known across the US in 1995, during the OJ Simpson murder case.

The 59-year-old was staying on Simpson’s estate during the murders, which took place on June 12 1994, and was a minor witness in the subsequent trial.

He will join Kandi Burruss, a member of R&B group Xscape who won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Song, for her writing contributions to TLC’s iconic hit song “No Scrubs.”

Burruss, who also co-wrote “Bills Bills Bills,” Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” and Usher’s “Pop Ya Collar,” will be known to some as a participant of reality TV show The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Who else is joining Jonathan Bennett on Celebrity Big Brother?

Another houseguest, Ryan Lochte, is a 12-time Olympic medallist. However, the swimmer is in the midst of a 14-month ban from the sport, after he accidentally self-reported his own doping violation with a photo on Instagram.

The 34-year-old also falsely claimed that he and three other Team USA swimmers had been robbed at gunpoint during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Celebrity Big Brother house will include another athlete, Lolo Jones, who is one of the few sportspeople to compete in both the Summer and Winter Olympics.

The 36-year-old is a hurdler and bobsledder, and has won World Championships in both sports.

Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams will join his fellow athletes in the house. The former Miami Dolphins running back, who played for 12 seasons in the NFL, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2015.

He will share the house with Natalie Eva Marie, a WWE wrestler who also appeared in 2017 film Inconceivable, alongside Faye Dunaway, Nicolas Cage and Gina Gershon.

Celebrity Big Brother viewers will also be able to watch R&B singer Tamar Braxton, who has received four Grammy Award nominations.

The performer started out with her sisters—including “Un-Break My Heart” singer Toni Braxton—in a group called The Braxtons.

Fellow houseguest Tom Green became known to TV viewers with his late-90s MTV series The Tom Green Show, before appearing in films including Road Trip, Charlie’s Angels and Freddy Got Fingered.

He was also married to Drew Barrymore for a few months in 2001.
