Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan are cast on second season of Peacock reality competition The Traitors
Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan have been cast on the second season of the Peacock reality competition The Traitors.
Larsa, 49, and Marcus, 32, who have been seen on The Real Housewives of Miami, have been confirmed as contestants on the series, People reported Wednesday.
The high-profile couple documented their travels on Instagram Stories as they arrived Wednesday in Scotland, where production on the series has commenced.
The premise of the reality show, which is hosted by Alan Cumming, pits competitors against one another on daunting tasks, with some secretly looking to sabotage the others.
The concept originated on the Dutch show De Verraders; it has also been adapted for Australia and the U.K., with both versions airing on Peacock.

The show’s first season, which received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program, featured 10 reality stars and 10 regular people in the cast.
The second frame of the series will only have known reality stars in the cast, according to the outlet, as filming is slated to continue for a few more weeks.
The pair, who are linked to the Chicago Bulls NBA dynasty of the 1990s – Marcus is Michael Jordan’s son, while Larsa is Scottie Pippen’s ex wife – will enter the game acknowledging their relationship.
In the Australian edition, a couple kept their romance secret and were eventually eliminated from the game.
People reported that the upcoming cast will be ‘made up of some of the greatest devious, strategic players across reality TV and beyond’ in the forthcoming frame, which was won last season by Survivor’s Cirie Fields.
Fields was pitted against notable names in the competition such as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville, The Bachelor’s Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan.
Larsa and Marcus, who were initially spotted with one another a year ago stepping out in their native Miami, have their own iHeartRadio podcast titled Separation Anxiety, which debuted this past June.
Larsa told the publication that she initially began talking to Marcus in 2019, and they had ‘a great foundation as friends’ before dating.

Larsa told the outlet in February that she realized she had feelings for Marcus when she saw another woman approaching him while they were out together.
‘I think it was one night we went out and there was a girl that was there,’ Larsa told People. ‘She was trying to talk to him, and I was getting jealous over it.
‘And it was weird because I’m not really the jealous person, but I was jealous over the situation. And so then, I was thinking maybe I do really like him. That kind of sealed the deal.’
The couple’s relationship will be documented on the forthcoming season of Real Housewives of Miami, which is slated to air on Bravo.
