VH1 has announced Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp's second season, the seventh overall edition of the reality weight-loss series, will premiere with a special 90-minute episode on Monday, February 8 at 9PM ET/PT.
The previously announced cast consists of former Britney and Kevin: Chaotic co-star Kevin Federline; his pre-Britney Spears ex Shar Jackson; Project Runway first-season winner Jay McCarroll; R&B star Bobby Brown; former Charles in Charge star and Baywatch babe Nicole Eggert; ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach; High School Musical's Kaycee Stroh; and Bad Girls Club alum Tanisha Thomas.
In addition to Federline, McCarroll and Thomas, several other cast members have previously appeared on a reality series.
Jackson was featured on ABC's The Ex-Wives Club reality series in 2007; Brown starred in Bravo's Being Bobby Brown reality series in 2005; Eggert played the role of Ginger in TBS's The Real Gilligan's Island reality series in 2004 and subsequently made a cameo on VH1's Scott Baio Is 45... and Single reality series; and Bach was chronicled in VH1's I Married... reality series with wife Maria in 2004.
Similar to its Spring 2008 sixth installment, the "boot camp" format will feature the celebrities attempting to shed weight with the help of "drill sergeant" Harvey Walden and nutrition and diet expert Dr. Ian Smith.
In addition, Rhonda Britten -- who previously starred in the syndicated Starting Over reality series -- will serve as the new "life coach" for the celebrity participants.
The cast will be split into two teams, which will then compete for $200,000 in cash and prizes. The individual celebrity who drops the most weight over eight weeks will win $50,000 in prizes.
