Meet the Cast of Celebrity Big Brother>>>

One of the HGs is Ross Mathews, a 38-year-old TV personality from Palm Springs, California. So who is he, what is his experience with reality TV competitions and what are his chances of winning Celebrity Big Brother?

Who Is Ross?

Ross Mathews first gained fame as Ross the Intern on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno where he was regularly featured. That turned into a long career as a TV personality where he’s best known for his red carpet work with E!, where he was also a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately, and as a regular judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Reality Competition History

Ross competed on the fifth season of VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club. He was on the winning team and, during the show, he lost more than 40 pounds, which made him one of the biggest losers on that season.

Ross on Celebrity Big Brother

Ross is a huge super fan of the show and he’s been watching it since the beginning. His favorite player is Janelle and his strategy is to be the puppet master, befriending everyone and hoping they underestimate him. He hopes that his experience interviewing celebrities on the red carpet will help with his social game in dealing with the “wackadoo” personalities.

How do you think Ross will do on Celebrity Big Brother?
