De Mooch only lasted 10 days as communication consultant of the White House, but he will try to hold out longer in the Big Brother house.
The CBS network announced Sunday that Anthony Scaramucci will be one of the participants in the second season of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition.
The Mooch will compete in the reality TV show where a group of people live in a house where each room is equipped with cameras that capture every movement.
At the end of each episode, the residents of the house vote to expel one of their peers.
The person who is last, runs away with a top prize of $ 250,000.

Book that comes? The 55-year-old & # 39; Mooch & # 39; followed in the footsteps of former White House assistant Omarosa Manigault Newman (photo), who did it for 26 days and spoke in the first season about President Donald Trump.
The season begins with a two-episode special broadcast back-to-back evenings on The Tiffany Network on Monday, January 21 and Tuesday, January 22, CBS announced.
The Mooch is the second former Trump official to enter the Big Brother house.
During the first season of the celebrity edition of the show, Omarosa Manigault, the former head of communication for the White House Office of Public Liaison, was a participant.
Manigault almost won the first prize after having won the last three houseguests. She was deported on the 26th and last day.
De Mooch became a national celebrity in his own right after he was hired unexpectedly by President Donald Trump to lead the White House store in July 2017.
But Scaramucci was fired when John Kelly took over the leadership of Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff of the White House, only 10 days after he was hired.
He left after a tumultuous week and a half, the highlight of which was a filthy interview he gave the New Yorker in which he spoke in bold terms about Priebus and another ex-adviser to the White House, Steve Bannon.
The short term of the Mooch in the White House gave him the status of celebrity he used to his advantage.
The Mooch will compete against Kato Kaelin, whose claim to fame hires a room at O.J. Simpson & # 39; s house in the period prior to the infamous murder of Simpson's ex-wife and a friend in 1994
Another participant in the Big Brother house is Ryan Lochte, the Olympic champion swimmer
Since he left the White House, the native language of Long Island wrote a book called Trump, the Blue-Collar President.
He also launched an online media company, Scaramucci Post. He has also regularly appeared on the popular podcast Pardon My Take.
Earlier this year Scaramucci promoted a cabaret show outside Broadway inspired by Trump and his family – the 1st annual Trump Family Special.
He also tried to launch a TV talk show, The Mooch & # 39; s Table, but the idea died after no network was willing to broadcast the program.
Last week, during the Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, The Mooch saw elbows with celebrities rubbing the red carpet.
During Big Brother: Celebrity Edition he will join other celebrities including O.J. Simpson & # 39; s former houseguest, Kato Kaelin; former Miami Dolphins star Ricky Williams; Mean Girls actor Jonathan Bennett; Braxton Family Values star Tamar Braxton; Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss; comedian and former MTV personality Tom Green; U.S. Olympian Lolo Jones; former Blossom star Joey Lawrence; Lindsay Lohan & # 39; s mother, Dina Lohan; WWE star Natalie Eva Marie; and Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte.
The show is organized by Julie Chen Moonves, the wife of the former former CBS leader Les Moonves.
Les Moonves, 69, resigned at Statistics Netherlands in early September after a number of women with allegations of sexual misconduct.
