The swimmer is among the cast for the second season of CBS’ “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition.” The cast also includes Ricky Williams, the former NFL running back, and Anthony Scaramucci, financier and six-day President Trump staffer. Lochte, a 12-time Olympic medalist, and his wife are expecting their second child. The show follows celebrities living in a house with every move recorded while they have no contact with the outside world. Each week, one or more is voted out, and the last one standing wins the $250,000 prize. The season begins with a two-night premiere, Jan. 21-22.

Trump routinely has sparred with pro athletes during his two years in office, but college football has managed to avoid such back and forth.
