The “Khloe & Lamar” alum will star as one of the 11 castmates on the new season of “Celebrity Big Brother.”
While the show’s goal is to win a whopping $250,000, Odom hopes to snag a chance to see his former wife.
Lamar Odom Wants To Run Into Khloé Kardashian In The ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ House
Odom is going into the 3rd season of “Celebrity Big Brother” with a few strategies planned out according to ET. He credited his interest in the show to his love for “competition and winning.”
The TV personality admitted he is still learning about the show but plans to be victorious. He said, “I’ve won two championships in L.A. already, so I think I deserve a third one.”
Odom admitted he is anxious about staying in a house with strangers for three weeks but hopes those nerves will go away when he feels people out on arrival.
The “Extra” star does not plan on playing nice all season either and noted, “if my roommates are making me act ruthless, then you’ll see a really ruthless side of me.”
Odom revealed that he hopes to run into his ex-wife and posited that she is full of good vibes. He expressed:
“Well, I’m hoping I’ll bump into Khloe Kardashian. “I don’t really dislike or hate anybody, just… anybody that’s not coming into the house with a good spirit.”
Also on the show are Chris Kattan, Carson Kressley, Todd Bridges, Todrick Hall, Chris Kirkpatrick, and athletes Miesha Tate and Mirai Nagasu.

The season will air on CBS from Wednesday, February 2 to February 23, at 8 p.m ET/PT, hosted by Julie Chen Moonves. Viewers can live stream the show on Paramount+.
The Blast disclosed Odom misses the warm embrace of the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” alum. He also admires her strength amid “corny” Tristan Thomson’s scandals.
The “Lamar Odom: Reborn” star confessed to TMZ that if he saw Kardashian again, he would “give her a hug.”
If the former lovers unite, Odom wants to tell the mother-of-one to keep her faith in God and be strong for herself and her daughter True Thompson.
Odom no longer hides his soft spot for Kardashian and publicly took a stance for her during Tristan Thomson’s very public paternity scandal earlier this year.
The Blast shared that despite vehemently denying cheating on the “Good American” co-founder with Miralee Nichols, a paternity test proved Thompson fathered her son.
Screenshots of the NBA player’s apology to Kardashian surfaced on Facebook, where he admitted that she was undeserving of the “heartache and humiliation”/he caused.” Odom replied:
“I truly wish nothing but the best for her and I’m hoping we can reconnect and talk one day as friends. She is a good person and deserves the world.”
The “Celebrity Big Brother” Housemate Reflects On Relationship With Sabrina Parr
Odom sees many things clearer, including his relationship with ex-fiance Sabrina Parr, now that he has left his life of substance abuse behind.
The Blast revealed last December that the 42-year-old took to Instagram with an emotional post to his “exes and next…,” detailing how he left Parr at the W Hotel in Atalanta.
Odom alleges that when the fitness trainer noticed his absence, he “received over 250 calls and text messages throughout last December from her wanting to fix” things between them.
The former NBA athlete wrote, “We were toxic. Independently and collectively.” He praised his team for working hard to get him a fresh start, adding:
“Today, I am free. Drug free. Marijuana free. Relationship free. I am rebuilding a relationship with myself. With my family. I am focused on my faith. My growth. My brand. I am a legend.”
The father-of-three owned the fact that he is a recovering addict and shaded Parr with, “I will not let troubled exes from my past haunt me.”
Odom is bettering himself for whoever God places next in his life, and with his recent show of support to Kardashian, it seems he wants her to be the one.
