The cast of Celebrity Big Brother has been revealed and the 11 houseguests will compete for three-and-a-half weeks to win the grand prize.

One of them is James Maslow, a 27-year-old actor and singer from California. He is the youngest male HG by more than a decade.

Who Is James?

James is best known as one of the members of Big Time Rush, a boy band that also had their own Nickelodeon TV show.

Reality Competition History

James was a contestant on season 18 of Dancing with the Stars four years ago. He finished in fourth place with his partner, Peta Muragtroyd. In a previous season, Peta was partnered with another Celebrity Big Brother HG, Metta World Peace.

James on Celebrity Big Brother

James doesn't seem to be a huge fan of the show, though he lists Chilltown (the alliance of Dr. Will and Mike "Boogie" Malin) as his favorite HGs. However, he seems to have a good strategy: "Pick who I think is the strongest player and team up with them." That strategy certainly helped other, less-experienced contestants like season 3's Jason Guy, season 10's Memphis and season 16's Cody Calafiore. James could easily fit into that mold.

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