AceShowbiz - The mystery has been solved! Fans were left confused after Anthony Scaramucci appeared to leave season 2 of "Celebrity Big Brother" even before the first eviction arrives. And now, the Friday, January 25 episode of the "Big Brother" spin-off offered the answer of the burning question.
Kicking off the episode was host Julie Chen who teased that not everything was what it seemed. Not long after that, the Houseguests learned a huge twist through a celebrity news update with ET's Kevin Frazier announcing, "One celebrity is not a real houseguest." Yup, the said houseguest was none other than the Mooch.
The former communications director for President Donald Trump later appeared on the television in a suit and with an American flag in the background. "Surprised!" he greeted the Houseguests. "Just like I left my mark in Washington, I'm going to leave my mark on the 'Big Brother' game."
The Mooch, who left the show after making his 11-day tenure, later revealed that the "Big Brother" house had one thing that resembled his time in Washington, D.C. "You get judged quickly - before people really know who you are. And you never get a second chance," he shared.
Anthony was now up for eviction, but now that he had exited the show prior to the eviction, Head of Household Ryan Lochte needed to nominate a new person for the block. Anthony was also given a thing named "Mooch's Veto" with the three houseguests being forced to compete for it.
On Wednesday, January 23, Anthony was spotted in Davos, Switzerland, attending a Skybridge business conference. During the panel, Anthony addressed his exit, adding that he couldn't say the reason he left the show. Saying that his time on the show was "a tremendous amount of fun," the Mooch added, "There's a lot of intellectuals that are like, 'WTF, what's he doing on 'Big Brother'?' But you have to remember, I grew up in a blue-collar family, so you have to remember that America watches these shows. You don't want to unplug yourself totally from America."
