John Mellencamp Cheers Daughter Teddi Mellencamp On In Celebrity Big Brother, Despite Not Knowing What It Is

In case you weren’t aware, Celebrity Big Brother premiered this week on CBS. Because of its shortened format compared to its predecessor Big Brother, we are treated to a whole lot of drama jam packed into a mere three weeks. And apparently, a whole lot of headwear looks from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, Teddi Mellencamp. Who, besides Gina Kirschenheiter packs this many hats? Just saying.

Joining Teddi and her questionable accessory choices on this season of Celebrity Big Brother is seasoned reality vet (and Kyle Richards stan), Carson Kressley. Surprisingly (or maybe not) Carson has seemingly ignored Teddi, in favor of forming an alliance with Shanna Moakler, Todrick Hall, and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey. All of whom he knows from previous reality interactions.

The season’s first HOH has already been played, and won, by UFC fighter Miesha Tate. In the last few seconds of the competition, only Miesha, Todrick, and Teddi were left hanging like puppets. A questionable nod toward Chris Kirkpatrick‘s “Bye Bye Bye” video perhaps? Considering the competition started with everyone walking the runway, I wonder if all competitions will tie back to a celebrity in some way. Can we also take a second to appreciate how Chris works in an NSYNC song title into every confessional? But I digress.

During the competition Todrick asks Meisha if he drops, to keep him safe. She readily agrees. Teddi asks for the same favor but is rejected. I lowkey wonder if Meisha is a RHOBH watcher and knows Teddi for the pot stirrer she is. While Meisha ultimately targets Carson and figure skater Mirai Nagasu for the block, it looks like Teddi will be the backdoor replacement.

While many, eh-hem, have predicted that Teddi would be the first housemate voted out, this is sad news for her father, John Mellencamp. According to Page Six, while John is excited to watch his daughter on television, he isn’t quite sure what she’s doing there. Teddi’s early ouster certainly won’t give him the opportunity to find out.

John took to Instagram to share a photo of him and Teddi as a child; as well as a photo of the two of them with Teddi’s two daughters.

John’s amusing caption was as follows, “A television show that Teddi is on premieres tonight. I don’t know what she’s doing, but I’m proud of her and hope she achieves her goals.” Neither do we John, neither do we.

I hate to say I told you so, but

TELL US- ARE YOU ENJOYING WATCHING TEDDI ON CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER? DO YOU THINK TEDDI WILL BE BACK DOORED? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE FIRST HOUSEGUEST VOTED OUT?
