Drama, drama, drama! Who doesn't love drama? More importantly, who doesn't love to watch the drama that reality shows bring? This is exactly the question that made CBS come up with 'Big Brother.' The premise of the show is quite simple. A group of contestants, called "HouseGuests," are brought to a custom-made house that has no contact from the outside world known as the Big Brother House. They compete in games for power over the household and for safety, voting each other out in an attempt to be the last houseguest and to win the grand cash prize.

'Celebrity Big Brother' differs from its parent series in two ways. The houseguests competing in the reality show are celebrities in the real world and their stay there is for a maximum of 30 days. You could also take a look at 'Love Island' and 'Undercover Boss' if you're looking for other CBS reality shows.

Who is Mirai Nagasu?

The figure skater from California is of Japanese heritage and began skating at 5. Nagasu represented America in the 2018 Games, winning bronze and becoming the first American ladies' singles skater to land the almost impossible triple Axel at the Olympics. Her parents own a Japanese sushi restaurant in Arcadia, California. The medal-winning skater holds a degree in business administration, graduating from UCCS in December 2020. Nagasu is 28 years old. Her net worth is estimated to be anywhere between $ 1-5 million but no proper figure has been reported as yet as information on her lifestyle and financials are not available on the Internet.

What can we expect from Mirai Nagasu in Season 3 of 'Celebrity Big Brother'?

By the looks of it, Nagasu doesn't appear to be someone who is familiar with the show and this lack of knowledge could affect her performance in the initial stages. However, she does come across as a fairly smart person capable of adapting to challenges and learning things on the go. The drama from her end could be minimal and she could be the kind of contestant who knows what kind of battles to pick.

This could make Nagasu last longer in the game, posing a serious threat to others. She also seems capable of outperforming others when it comes to endurance competitions given her sports background. 

'Celebrity Big Brother' has had two successful seasons so far. The third season is produced by Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America. The show is set to premiere on February 2, 2022, on CBS.
