Teddi last week spoke with US Weekly about her forthcoming stint on the series, saying she brushed up on the CBS staple after being cast.
‘I watched a little bit of Big Brother before being cast, but now I have watched almost every episode,’ she said.

In terms of her strategy on the show, Mellencamp said she was relying on instinct to choose who she will align herself with on the show.
‘I feel like when you meet a true friend slash alliance, it feels effortless,’ she said. ‘You know right away that that is your person. I am hoping there is at least just one person in that house that I feel that exact way about, and feels the same way about me.
‘I’ll just get that natural feeling of just if that is somebody I could imagine spending my time with. I’m not a great person with just small talk and faking it. So, I absolutely feel like when I talk to my person, I’ll know.’
Teddi said if she had a choice between taking her ‘biggest ally’ or ‘biggest competition to the final two,’ she would choose her ally.
‘Because if we supported each other through the whole thing,’ she said, ‘most likely that person is part of the reason I’m still there.’
Rounding out the cast of the series includes Cynthia Bailey, Todd Bridges, Todrick Hall, Chris Kattan, Chris Kirkpatrick, Carson Kressley, Shanna Moakler, Mirai Nagasu, Lamar Odom and Miesha Tate.
Celebrity Big Brother is set to debut Wednesday on CBS at 8/7c.
