Lance Bass says he won’t be taking part in the very first American version of Celebrity Big Brother when it premieres in the new year.
CBS will air a celebrity edition for the very first time in the states, but the celebrity edition has been a staple in the U.K. since 2001. For those who have the former NSYNC star on their wish list can now cross him off.
“I’m not doing it,” he reveals to ET. “I am the biggest Big Brother fan ever. I want to play this game so badly, but it’s just, I’m not going to be in a house that long and not get paid $10 million. So, if you wanna pay me $10 million, I’m in!”
Bass’ $10 million wish will likely not even be considered by CBS or Big Brother producers. TV Guide reported earlier in the year that host Julie Chen would be taking a pay cut to front the celebrity edition.
For those who wish for Bass to do the British version of the show, you are out of luck. He’s turned that down too.
“They ask me to do the British one every single year, but there’s no game to it,” he said.
Other names linked to the series include Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, 90’s rocker Sebastian Bach, and Reality TV star and model Blac Chyna.
Celebrity Big Brother USA airs on CBS in the new year.
