Big Brother” fans are anxiously awaiting the cast announcement for the third season of “Celebrity Big Brother.”
In the meantime, casting rumors have swirled and fans have speculated about who might appear on the show. A tweet from Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio has some fans thinking that “The Challenge” alum is among the “Celebrity Big Brother” cast members. When the official “Big Brother” Twitter account announced the show’s return, Devenanzio retweeted it and added the side-eye emoji.
While it’s likely that Devenanzio was just implying that he’d like to be considered for casting, some fans took his tweet as a sign that he’d already been asked. “Bro PLEASE go on,” one Twitter user replied, while another wrote, “what are you trying to say?”
Devenanzio has won seven seasons of “The Challenge,” more than any other player in history. He first appeared on “The Real World” in 2006.
