Lamar Odom Reveals He Hopes To Bump Into Ex-Wife Khloé Kardashian On 'Celebrity Big Brother' After Joining Reality Show Cast
The Kardashians are going to be familiar with a few faces in the Big Brother house.
Khloé Kardashian's ex-husband, Lamar Odom, was announced as a competitor on the upcoming season of Celebrity Big Brother. Kourtney Kardashian's fiancé, Travis Barker's ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, will also be joining the cast.
Odom admitted to Entertainment Tonight that there wasn't anyone he's keen to meet on the show. However, he revealed he does hope to see Kardashian in the house. "Well, I'm hoping I'll bump into Khloe Kardashian," the former NBA pro confessed.
"I don't really dislike or hate anybody, just anybody that doesn't have a good spirit, anybody that's not coming into the house with a good spirit," he told the publication.
The 42-year-old is already confident he's going to win, reportedly pointing out: "I'm a competitor by nature. I love to compete. I love to win, so, I guess that's why I decided to be on the show."
"I haven't watched a lot of the show, so I'm still learning about the show, but I'm definitely gonna win. I've won two championships in L.A. already, so I think I deserve a third one," he added, per the publication.
After noting he doesn't know any of his fellow cast mates, Odom admitted he was nervous about living with complete strangers. "I guess those nerves will go away as soon as I'm in the house, you know, get to say hello for the first time, or feel people out," he reportedly continued while remaining positive. "I'm really good at feeling people out, so, I think I'll do pretty good at this job."

He warned that viewers may see his "ruthless" side if his housemates push him to that point: "Hopefully we won't have to see that side."
As previously reported by OK!, while the Good American cofounder has been dealing with the fallout from Tristan Thompson's paternity scandal, Odom shared his thoughts on the matter with the press. Earlier this month, he said he would "give her a hug" if he saw her.
"I haven't seen her in a long time," he explained, adding that she should "be strong" and "keep her faith in God" amid the ordeal.
Meanwhile, Moakler seems excited to take part in the show. "Did you hear the news?!📣This is going to be fun…stay tuned!💋" she shared on Instagram Wednesday, January 26.
