Bobbi Kristina Brown has reportedly been cast in the upcoming season of Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother, a deal that will earn the young reality TV star up to $460,000.
The 20-year-old has reportedly been brought on to the popular reality show for its upcoming 12th season, where she’ll compete with some of the U.K.’s best-known stars.
Bobbi Kristina is expected to add quite a bit of controversy to the mix, as well. One of the show’s insiders said:
“We have had some madcap contestants over the years, but Bobbi Kristina could be the most controversial yet. She’s sure to bring in viewers with her bizarre antics and, of course, her memories of Whitney. Her parents were some of the most notorious hellraisers in music, and Bobbi Kristina has had plenty of attention for her own behavior.”
Other reality TV celebs to compete on Celebrity Big Brother have included Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who ended up being the runners up last season. In season 10, Jersey Shore’s Mike Sorrentino placed fourth.
Big Brother has aged well in over 10 years of broadcast and countless spin-offs. The show has become increasingly controversial in recent years. Not only have reality TV competitors in the Celebrity franchise often made headlines for their antagonistic behavior, the U.S.’ parent program has been making tons of news lately over the offensive and racist comments made on live feeds by some of the current season’s contestants.
Bobbi Kristina, the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, is already well-known for her reality TV stint on the Lifetime program The Houstons: On Our Own, which chronicled the lives of Whitney Houston’s family members and how they coped with her death in 2012.
She has not yet confirmed whether she’ll be participating with Celebrity Big Brother. Her most recent announcement regarded her engagement to longtime love Nick Gordon.
