Perez Hilton The Big Brother Superfan Not Invited?

According to Perez Hilton, he is a self-proclaimed Big Brother superfan. He said that he would have loved to be on the show last year and even filmed a video saying why CBS should bring him on. Recently, he disclosed that he thinks, “I’ll never get on Celebrity Big Brother.”

Perez dishes that the CBB cast list is officially locked. He also disclosed some names of celebs who passed up on the opportunity to play. Todrick Hall, the youtube and MTV star turned down a spot. Todrick was possibly too busy or perhaps not interested. Carnie Wilson, one of the hosts on The Talk was signed but backed out due to health issues.

Perez has also claimed that many of the celebrities signed onto the CBB have backgrounds on Dancing with the Stars.
