Howard Stern says he was offered $3,000 to visit previous Big Brothers.
Saying he’d participate in a celebrity edition of Big Brother only if it was just him and Kathy Lee Gifford in the house for a month with no food (which was, presumably, Howard screwing around), Howard Stern said that CBS twice offered him $5,000 to visit each of the first two houses. He didn’t, according to The New York Post’s account, because he says, “For $5,000, short of killing them, I couldn’t see wasting my time with them.”
