Anthony Scaramucci was the first star to leave Celebrity Big Brother 2.

President Donald Trump's former White House Communications Director was apparently ousted—or quit--on Tuesday night's show.

While his cast mates wondered on camera if "The Mooch" actually left on his own or was part of a twist during the live feed following the January 22, 2019 episode, he has confirmed his exit.

Scaramucci resurfaced at a political event in Davos, Switzerland on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 after leaving the CBS reality show.

During a panel discussion for a Skybridge business conference, Scaramucci told reporters he couldn't say why he left CBB, but noted that his short time on the show was "a tremendous amount of fun. There’s a lot of intellectuals that are like, 'WTF, what’s he doing on Big Brother’ But you have to remember I grew up in a blue collar family so you have to remember that America watches these shows. You don’t want to unplug yourself totally from America."

Live feeds from the TV house after Tuesday's showed that the businessman--who worked for President Trump for just ten days in 2017-- was MIA.

None of his co-stars seemed to know what happened but some discussed it before the live feeds cut off.

They wondered if Scaramucci was a mole or cast member designed to sabotage the game.

They also couldn't understand why the Mooch's photo on the memory wall was still in color instead of grey, the color of all houseguests who depart.

It's expected that CBB host Julie Chen-Moonves will explain on tonight's episode the circumstances of Scaramucci's quick departure.
