Trust is the name of the game in the new Peacock competition series “The Traitors,” which pits contestants against one another to figure out who are "The Faithful" and who are "The Traitors." The series — hosted by beloved actor Alan Cumming — stars 20 cast members, 10 of whom are celebrities who may look familiar because they have appeared on other reality television shows. From "Big Brother" to "Survivor" and "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" to name a few, the cast will bring a variety of faithfulness or backstabbing shade to the game.
So, who is on the show? Here’s a look at the celebrity cast members who will be holed up in a Scotland Highlands remote castle vying to win or crack each other’s trust on the series.
Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Arie Luyendyk Jr. hails from Bachelor Nation. The luxury real estate agent was the first runner up in “The Bachelorette” in 2012, and led Season 22 of “The Bachelor” in 2018 where he met his wife, Lauren. Arie also appeared on “The Bachelor: Winter Games,” “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart,” HGTV’s “House Hunters,” and Fox’s “Hell Kitchen.”
Arie hinted at being on a new reality show in his vlog with his wife Lauren earlier this summer. He mentioned he could be gone as little as three days or as long as three weeks, so we’ll have to tune in to see if he is faithful or a traitor on the show.
Brandi Glanville is known for her brand of drama in her role on Bravo TV’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” For the past 13 years, she has been hosting her podcast “What Else but Brandi Glanville Unfiltered.” Since leaving RHOBH, Brandi has gone on to appear in 13 other reality shows including “Celebrity Apprentice,” “Celebrity Big Brother,” “My Kitchen Rules,” E’s “Famously Single,” and Bravo’s “Ultimate Girls Trip.”
“I’m backkk!” Brandi captioned an Instagram post promoting her "The Traitors" run. “Make sure to watch me compete in this epic game of manipulation and deceit!”
She’s a two-time New York Times bestselling author, but given her record on "RHOBH," is she trustworthy or a Traitor?
“Survivor” fan favorite Cirie Fields has competed on “Survivor: Panama,” as well as Micronesia, Heroes VS. Villains, and Game Changers. Needless to say, she’s a game player and that will be no surprise on “The Traitors.”
She also recently starred in an episode of USA Network's "Snake In The Grass" in which she turned out to be the Snake. Will she turn on her fellow competitors once again in "The Traitors"?
Cody made his debut on “Big Brother” season 16 and made it to the final two. He went on to win “Big Brother All Stars” in 2020. His film credits include "Joy & Hope" and "The Maltese Holiday" on Amazon Prime Video.
Kate Chastain is well-known for her role as Chief Stew on Bravo’s “Below Deck.” She retired from ship life after six seasons on the show. Kate has also starred in Bravo’s “Chat Room” and “Galley Talk.” But right now, she's gearing up for her biggest role yet: Being a mom. She told PEOPLE that she is expecting a baby in May 2023.
“This is such a new and special experience, so I'm really being protective of what I share publicly," she said. "But with new episodes of 'Below Deck Galley Talk' about to air on Bravo after Christmas and 'The Traitors' premiering on Peacock on Jan. 12, 2023, there's just no hiding my baby bump any longer!"
Kyle Cooke stars on Bravo’s “Summer House” and “Winter House.” He is also the founder of the adult beverage brand Loverboy. Cooke has founded a number of startups across multiple industry sectors, and while he’s known for partying, the “lover boy” posted on Instagram that he finally filmed a show that didn’t revolve around partying. Any guesses as to what that might be? (Hint: It premieres on Peacock on Jan. 12!)
Rachel Reilly is a fierce reality TV competitor, having already won three reality shows: “Big Brother,” “Fear Factor,” and USA's “Snake in the Grass.” Will she win “The Traitors"? As she once told USA, “I’m horrible at social games but great at winning.”
Reza Farahan is best known for his role on Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset,” and has been seen frequently on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.” Reza works in the Los Angeles real estate world, representing clients from the movie industry, star athletes and Middle Eastern royalty.
Why not throw a 12-time Olympic medalist into the mix?
Ryan Lochte’s seven individual Olympic medals are second all-time in Men’s Swimming and he is the current world record holder in the 200-individual medley. Ryan has partnered with Peacock before in his documentary “In Deep with Ryan Lochte” in 2020, and he has taken a dive into reality television waters before with “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” as a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars'' season 23, and starring on “Celebrity Big Brother.” He’s taking on another role as a dad for the third time, as he and his wife Kayla Reid recently announced they are expecting a baby in June.
Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick
Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick is best known as a three-time “Survivor” having played in Palau, Guatemala, and Heroes vs. Villains. She also appeared in the show “Snake in the Grass” as the snake. She is married to former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick.
Ahead of filming “The Traitors,” her family helped her prepare for potentially being picked as one of the Traitors. Is this a hint of what’s to come? She also shared that she initially turned down being on the show because she didn’t want to miss her son’s first holy communion.
"The Traitors" premieres on Peacock on Jan. 12. There are a variety of competition series that you can also check out on Peacock.
