The Wanted singer Max George rejects $193,000 U.K. reality show offer – report

Former The Wanted singer Max George has reportedly turned down a $193,000 (£150,000) offer to star on U.K. reality show Celebrity Big Brother later this year (17).
The 28-year-old singer, most famous for his work with the British boyband as well as his former engagement to actress Michelle Keegan, was apparently approached by bosses at broadcaster Channel 5 about the upcoming programme.
However, Max is said to have decided against appearing on the show, because he’s not a fan of the reality TV genre as a whole.
“Max isn’t interested in doing any reality TV,” a source told Britain’s The Sun newspaper. “He has been inundated with offers but wants to avoid having to open up about his love life.
“He’s told pals he will leave any reality telly work to his ex-bandmates Tom Parker and Jay McGuiness.”
Tom has appeared on British shows Celebrity Masterchef and The Jump, while Jay competed on Strictly Come Dancing, the U.K. version of Dancing With The Stars, in 2015, winning the glitterball trophy with professional partner Aliona Vilani.
The line-up for this year’s Celebrity Big Brother is being kept under wraps by Channel 5. However, names linked to the upcoming series include former wrestler Hulk Hogan and reality star Caitlyn Jenner.
