It's been quite some time since viewers had their Traitors fix, with the UK season coming to an end earlier this year, but there are plenty more seasons to choose from.

The second season of The Traitors US made its way to BBC iPlayer earlier this month and fans can tune in to find out who took home the prize pot and whether the Faithful or Traitors reigned triumphant.

Hosted by Alan Cumming, the second season of the US Traitors follows a similar pattern to the UK series, but there are some changes. Firstly, civilians are out and celebrities are in, meaning that we get a full star-studded line-up of Faithfuls and Traitors.

Secondly, two new areas have been added: the scullery and the folley. And the third (and arguably the biggest) change is that instead of going to the armoury, contestants have to win Shields in challenges.

As a whole host of famous faces battle it out for that money pot, here's everything you need to know about The Traitors US season 2 cast.

If there's one thing Johnny Devenazio loves more than game shows – he has competed in several seasons of The Challenge and appeared on MTV's The Real World: Key West – it's bananas. He earned his nickname because he shoved bananas in his mum's car's tailpipe to get out of school, and his first job was at a Banana Republic store.

If you can handle the wrath of Michelle Visage, you can handle anything, and we have no doubt that this is drag queen Peppermint's approach as she joins The Traitors US line-up. She was a favourite among fans in season 9 of RuPaul's Drag Race, and was a whisker away from winning the whole thing, as she sashayed away as the season's runner-up.
