The cast of the show was revealed Saturday night during the Grammy Awards with the season set to begin on Feb. 7 on CBS.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Liddell will appear alongside former White House political aide Omarosa Manigault, former NBA player Metta World Peace and Sugar Ray lead singer Mark McGrath.

Real Housewives’ star Brandi Glanville, Keshia Knight from The Cosby Show, American Pie actress Shannon Elizabeth, actor James Maslow, Broadway actress Marissa Janet Winokur, RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Ross Matthews and former Miss Universe 2015, Ariadna Gutierrez, complete the cast.

“The Iceman” has appeared on a number of reality television shows over the year.
