For the first time, a celebrity edition of Big Brother is coming to the U.S. in early 2018. While no official details on the CBS reality show have emerged, there are several rumors about potential celebrity houseguests, including one former Jersey Shore resident.

According to RadarOnline, Samantha Giancola, aka original Jersey Shore star Sammi Sweetheart, may be appearing on Celebrity Big Brother. A source told Radar that "Sammi is working on another project. I believe she is joining Celebrity Big Brother."

This comes after MTV announced that they will be filming a special Jersey Shore reunion series, Family Vacation, to air in 2018, but Sammi won't be a part of it. The reunion will include almost all of the other stars: Snook, JWoww, the Situation, Pauly D, Ronnie, Vinny and Deena. Radar also suggested that one of the primary reasons Sammi won't be a part of the Jersey Shore reunion is that she doesn't want to be in a house with Ronnie, her ex-boyfriend.

Since CBB is still more than a month away, at least, it's impossible to tell if this is just a rumor or if it will pan out. Sammi isn't the first name to hit the CBB rumor mill. According to Us Weekly, the show is trying to get Blac Chyna, formerly of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and her own spin-off with ex-fiancee Rob Kardashian, to appear on the show.

And according to British tabloid The Sun, former The Hills star Stephanie Pratt has also had meetings to be on Celebrity Big Brother. Pratt already appeared on the U.K. version of CBB, following in the footsteps of her brother Spencer. She now appears on the British reality show Made in Chelsea.

Only time will tell if Sammi, Blac Chyna or Stephanie will be on the inaugural U.S. version of Celebrity Big Brother, but all three are reality TV veterans who would seem to fit the mold and point in the direction of the kind of stars that will be entering the house.

Which of these three rumors would you be most excited to see on CBB?

Celebrity Big Brother will air on CBS in Winter 2018. For more BB updates, follow BuddyTV's Big Brother Facebook page.
