Season 7's Cast Includes Bobby Brown, Jay McCarroll, KayCee Stroh, Kevin Federline, Nicole Eggert, Sebastian Bach, Shar Jackson and Tanisha Thomas

PASADENA, CA- January 15, 2010 � As America embarks on a New Year full of resolutions to lose weight and make tough life changes, VH1 celebrates the new decade with a fresh season of "Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp." This season boasts a cast full of pop culture personalities ready to bare their bodies and souls as they dig in for the most grueling fitness program on television � designed to help them drop not only their flab, but also their emotional baggage. At the end of eight weeks, they will be lean, mean Fit Club machines ready to face the world and show off their new hard bodies. "Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp" premieres on VH1 Monday, February 8 at 9:00 PM*.

Battling the bulge this season are legendary R&B bad boy Bobby Brown, Jay McCarroll (winner of "Project Runway," Season 1), KayCee Stroh ("High School Musical"), dancer and choreographer Kevin Federline, former "Baywatch" babe Nicole Eggert, Sebastian Bach (Former lead singer of Skid Row), actress Shar Jackson ("Moesha"), and infamous "Bad Girl" Tanisha Thomas ("Bad Girls Club", Season 2). The cast will be broken into two teams, competing for $200,000 in cash and prizes and the individual celeb who drops the most weight will win $50,000 in prizes.

Driving the cast through the punishing and life changing eight-week boot camp is CFC veteran and U.S. Marine Corps Drill Instructor Harvey Walden IV (RET). Using Harvey's unique brand of "tough love," he will guide the celebs over walls, through the mud and past their own limitations as they realize their true potential for the first time. Also leading the cast through their journey is nutrition and diet expert, Dr. Ian Smith, who will change the way the celebs looks at food and their eating habits. New to this season is life coach Rhonda Britten. Rhonda will spend one on one time with the celebs and help mentor them through the journey of shedding excess weight.

Eight weeks of mud, sweat and tears promise to deliver the most exciting and emotional season of Celebrity Fit Club yet. The challenges will be brutal, but in the end, the results will be amazing. Catch the 90-minute premiere of "Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp" on VH1 Monday, February 8 at 9:00 PM*.
