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.
VH1 renewed Celebrity Fit Club for a seventh season in June.

Kevin Federline lost out on a role in the latest American Pie movie – playing himself.
"They called me up and asked if I was interested," Federline, 31, tells PEOPLE. "I was up for a different part originally, but then they didn't want me playing myself. I think they thought it would be funnier for me as a Canadian border guard."
One day of shooting on location in Vancouver later, Federline was transformed, donning a hat, uniform and badge for his cameo in American Pie Presents: The Book of Love, out on DVD on Dec. 22.
Newly svelte from his appearance on Celebrity Fit Club, Federline is ready and available for more work. "If anybody has any more cameos – or actual roles they want to me in – that would be great," he says. – Mike Fleeman

Federline, 31, and Prince, 27, had a late lunch at Mexican restaurant Casa Vega in Sherman Oaks, Calif. "She looked very pretty when she arrived for her bash," says an observer.
Federline, who sources says has lost about 30 lbs. since joining the cast of VH1's upcoming Celebrity Fit Club, "joked how it's about time he gets some proper food," according to an eyewitness.
The former Mr. Britney Spears was spotted out at Casa Vega having lunch with his girlfriend Victoria Prince and friends Nick and Drew Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo.
And as he made his exit, K-Fed looked decidedly more fit, sporting his usual baggy t-shirt/shorts combo and smiling confidently.
Some highlights from the interview:
Are you happy to see Britney in love again?
Yeah, I'm totally happy for her. That's all I want… you want your children's mother to be happy. It's great.
Are Preston and Jayden showing signs of being little rappers of performers?
They love dancing it's in their blood. It's so funny they’ll go around the house and they try to breakdance. They imitate their mother a lot because they've been to the shows it's really funny to watch. I mean they're kids and they're like a sponge it's interesting to watch them come into their own little characters.
You’ve done a lot in your 31 years including dancing for Michael Jackson. What's your proudest achievement?
For me my children are the best thing that's ever happened to me. Unless you have children you don't really know. When my daughter was born that was it, I knew that I was gonna have more children. I just knew it. My parents had raised me so well and my whole life completely changed whenever I had children.
When did you first notice the weight creeping up?
A couple of years ago I could tell my metabolism was slowing down and it's just like my stomach was growing and growing on a daily basis (laughs). Getting’ out of control. We were in Miami a couple of months ago and they [paparazzi] got a picture of me with my shirt off at the pool and when I saw that I was just like, WOW.

Tanisha has been [allegedly] arrested again but this time for having a fist fight during filming with Kevin Federline.Source: mediatakeout.com
We are confident that she will be released and all will go well, but this jerk has been messing with Tanisha since the first day the cast met because he didn't like that she was so close to his ex char jackson.
According to Tanisha, the drama all began when the cast had to do a hike in California on runyon canyon and Federline was making fun of Tanisha for complaining and singing britney spears songs with Char.
It was all in fun but he obviously couldn't take a joke or someone making fun of britney
Federline, who is in Melbourne with his girlfriend, Victoria Prince, took his two young sons to the Melbourne Aquarium.
The family had a back-of-house penguin tour, as well as a glass-bottom boat tour.
"Their favourite part of the tour was the Fish Bowl where they saw the massive sharks," a source said.
"They were an absolute joy to take through."
After carrying out his dad duties, Federline indulged in some more adult-oriented entertainment, spending the afternoon gambling at Crown.
He did not have the children with him.
Federline and Prince spent two hours with a group of mates in the high-rolling Mahogany Room, drinking scotch and playing the dice game, craps.
Federline's pop star ex-wife wrapped up her Australian tour in Adelaide on Sunday night.

Currently situated in Australia as Britney Spears finishes up her Circus tour, K-Fed and his lady dropped into the local Ed Hardy shop - posing for photos with fans and signing autographs along the way.
Producers expected the US musician - who completed a training session for the gig on Thursday - at 6.40am for a 7am start but went into panic mode when he and his publicist couldn't be contacted.
In was an eventful day for the show, with Robbie Williams later declaring his undying love for girlfriend Ayda Field with an apparent marriage proposal on air before flying out.
But it was Federline's no-show which dominated the morning and Confidential can reveal that Federline - Britney Spears' ex-husband - pulled out after being enraged the night before by a headline on the 2DayFM website.
It was based on an interview between the trio two weeks ago and the headline read: "Hear (Federline) confess that he's not ruling out getting back together with Britney!!"
A make-up artist from Spears' Circus tour alerted his now-girlfriend Victoria Prince to the posting on Thursday night. She asked Federline about it at dinner, he checked the site on his iPhone - and "exploded".
"The headline was completely out of context with the interview and Kevin is not getting back with Britney, so he said, 'F . . . them, I'm not going to do their show'," Federline's publicist Amanda Archer told Confidential.
Decision made, they then went out into the early hours.
Archer maintained she had immediately texted a 2DayFM producer to alert them, but station content director Derek Bargwanna said none was received. "If he has a problem, fine, but we should have been told or warned and we weren't and that left us seriously in the lurch and it was unprofessional," he said.
Responded Archer: "The unprofessional thing was making up a headline like that when nothing of the sort was said in the original interview."
Federline flew to Melbourne yesterday after making an appearance at Bondi Junction's Ed Hardy fashion store.

K-Fed spent his Thanksgiving morning in Brisbane making an in-store appearance at an Ed Hardy shop, along with his current girlfriend Victoria Prince.
Ed Hardy is the same brand that has dressed Jon Gosselin and flew the otherwise unemployed, divorced, father of eight to the South of France with his girlfriend this summer. There was even talk of Gosselin designing kids clothes for the brand.
The store appearance isn't Federline's only gig. The former backup dancer will appear on the upcoming season of Celebrity Fit Club, for which he has visibly slimmed down after briefly earning the moniker K-Fat.

The excessive weight drew scorn from the US press, something that made him appreciate his ex-wife's position, and he dropped almost 19kg on US reality show Celebrity Fit Club, which he finished filming before touching down in Brisbane on Sunday.
Despite the rumour mill going into overdrive last week, with talk that the gorgeous pro-volleyballer Prince was pregnant, Confidential can reveal that, in fact, she's not.
Sometime singer Federline has two children with former fiance Shar Jackson and two sons with Spears, Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3.
Currently he has sole custody of his boys with Spears and, now they're a little older, Father Federline is looking at getting back to business.
He plans to relaunch himself while here in Australia.
"They're at an age where they're not tiny babies and she [Spears] can look after them on occasion when he goes out of town," a source said.
Despite previously being rather media shy, Federline has conducted two magazine interviews since arriving in Australia.
There are even whispers that he may return early next year for an appearance on the catwalk for a "major menswear label" during Australian Fashion Week.
Federline and Prince are expected to arrive in Sydney today.

So says Shar Jackson -- his ex-girlfriend and mother of two of his children, also a contestant on the next season of Fit Club, which premieres in January.
"I think everybody will be very, very shocked to see the end results," Jackson told Usmagazine.com at Nov. 20's Home of the Holidays Gift Lounge event in L.A.
Shooting for the reality competition ended on Nov. 19, and Jackson confirmed to Us that she and Federline "both made it to the end." The one-time couple didn't team up or work out together on the show, the 33 year-old singer-actress said. "He was on his journey and I was on mine,"
But they certainly had reasons to bond: both "survived the Harvey [E. Walden IV] boot camp," she said of the show's hard-charging coach. "You can't even imagine the stuff that this man put us through . . . very painful!"
Outside their reality-show gig, Jackson says that she and Federline are "definitely still friends." Federline is father to her daughter Kori, 7, and son Kaleb, 5 -- who have playdates with Sean and Jayden, Federline's sons with ex-wife Britney Spears.
"They're siblings," Jackson explained. "They're going to be related forever. There's nothing we can do about that so we make sure that they love each other and know each other and have a great relationship."
"K-Fed doesn't rule out getting back with Britney!
In an Exclusive interview with Kyle and Jackie O he revealed that he wants the best for his kids. Could we be seeing a reunion when Kevin Federline arrives in Australia this month?"

Kevin Federline is reportedly staying calm as he attempts to lose weight in the upcoming season of Celebrity Fit Club.
High School Musical star KayCee Stroh, who is also competing on the weight-loss reality show, says everyone has to keep a daily journal, too.
Even so, the former Mr. Britney Spears has yet to break down in front of anyone because...
"Kevin's as cool as a cucumber," Stroh tells me. "He keeps it all together. All the rest of us are sobbing like babies, but Kevin is pretty calm and collected."
Stroh is the designated leader of a group that includes Federline, Skid Row musician Sebastian Bach and Tanisha Thomas from The Bad Girls Club.
"Kevin is really a trouper," Stroh says. "He's actually quite shy and quiet and soft-spoken. But when he pipes in, he's very funny and really witty."
The new season of the nine-week competition will wrap in about a month.
Stroh insists she's not a bossy leader when it comes to Federline or anyone else in their group. "I've learned that it's best to lead by example with them," she says. "Kevin will take it like a champ though. He'll take constructive criticism very well."

IT was always going to be tough to get Britney Spears to break camp, but an inner-city Brisbane dance school has got the next best thing.
Kevin Federline, the father of Brit's two children Sean and Jayden and a bit of a dancer himself, will drop in to Mad Dance House.
Principal Meg Cooper was gobsmacked when Eddie Morales, who's conducting a guest workshop on November 24 and 28, told her he'd bring his pal K-Fed along.
"It is a bit of a spectacle. (Kevin's) coming to hang out, he won't dance or anything. He's gonna be in town anyway, he has the kids," Meg said.
So, no need to get an extra babysitter? "I was actually thinking about that," said Meg, who had Morales in before when he was on tour with Justin Timberlake.
Workshops with a bunch of Britney back-up dancers that week are still open, and gawkers are welcome. The dancers will also party down VIP-style at the Valley's Magic City on November 21.

Kevin Federline and Victoria Prince: Family Movie Fun with Kori, Kaleb, Sean Preston, and Jayden James
The happy family looked to be thoroughly enjoying the afternoon outing, as Kevin and Victoria held hands while escorting the young’ens in and out of the local cinema.
The movie excursion comes amidst rumors that K-Fed and Miss Prince are expecting their first child together, with an insider telling Us magazine, “The test was positive. She told Kevin that she was pregnant, but he didn’t seem happy to hear the news.”
Aside from his parental duties, Federline is currently gearing up for his appearance on the television show “Celebrity Fit Club”.
