Big Brother is watching, and some people are into that kind of thing (we don’t judge). Which is why regular Joes have been backstabbing, drama-queening, and outmaneuvering their way into reality TV history for (going on) 16 seasons. Or it could just be the money. The winner of the voyeuristic CBS TV show takes home a hefty grand prize that might almost make it worth losing all semblance of your dignity. What do you think? Is $500,000 enough? If you have always wanted to be locked up in a house with a bunch of strangers and videotaped 24/7, you’re insane. Luckily, insanity is probably what the casting crew is looking for, and they’re holding auditions for Big Brother season 16 this Saturday. Being outgoing and competitive also helps. Do your best New York impression and show ’em who’s the head bitch in charge. The casting call runs from noon to 3 p.m. at Cameo (1445 Washington Ave., Miami Beach). Producers promise to see everyone who shows by 3, and callbacks will be held the following week. Auditions are open to anyone 21 and older. Visit or email [email protected]
