Caitlyn Jenner to compete in Celebrity Big Brother in Australia during run for California Governor

Decathlete-turned-gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner is going back to her reality TV roots.

Jenner has left California this week to compete in Celebrity Big Brother in Australia, according to a report from Politico.

Following the report, Jenner took to social media to defend herself, insisting that she is "honoring a work commitment" she made before she decided to run for governor.

The gubernatorial candidate went on to add that her Australia trip will not put a pause on her campaign. She says she will be back in time for her bus tour across California ahead of the Sept. 14 recall election.
