Its no secret that CBS and Big Brother producers haven’t been having much luck when it comes to finding people for Celebrity Big Brother next year and while producers do have decent enough backups in Jessica Graf, Cody Nickson and possibly a Kardashian, they have still failed to get the hard hitters they had initially been hoping for when the announcement of the show was made.

Former NSYNC member Lance Bass was considered for the show, but he turned it down because the producers refused to pay him ten million dollars to do it. Snooki from Jersey Shore was also considered, but there has been no update on her status for the show. With that being said, it appears her former costar, Samantha Giancola might be in talks with the show to compete.
According to Radaronline.com, “Samantha Giancola, aka original Jersey Shore star Sammi Sweetheart, may be appearing on Celebrity Big Brother. A source told Radar that “Sammi is working on another project. I believe she is joining Celebrity Big Brother.” Of course none of this confirmed as of yet and it may just end up to be another baseless rumor, but the idea of someone as well known as Sammi Sweetheart appearing on the show could bring in the Jersey Shore crowd and many more.
In the end, it seems like the celebrity edition of the show is going to suffer the same fate as Big Brother over The top did a few years back. The show was too much content for casual fans and was only watched by the most die hard of fans. It was also only available online, which while that wont be be the case with this show, it will have a reduced format which might scare some fans away.
What are your thoughts? Do you think Sammi Sweetheart would be a good edition to the show or are producers really scrapping the bottom of the barrel at this point in time. Let us know in the comments below!
