“Big Brother” casting call

From “The Voice” contestant Music Box to “American Idol” phenom Sanjaya Malakar, many South Sound residents have enjoyed 15 minutes of fame on reality TV. Could you be the next one?

CBS-TV’s “Big Brother” will hold an open casting call for its 16th season from noon to 3 p.m. on April 12 at South Hill Mall, 3500 South Meridian, in Puyallup. “Bring your outgoing, fun personality – no need to bring anything else,” reads the announcement from CBS.

The premise of the show is a group housemates living together in a specially constructed house, having their every move monitored by in-house television cameras. Contestants are evicted throughout each season, and the last one standing takes home $500,000.
