Ever since Sha'Carri Richardson was contacted to be part of the popular CBS show, 'Celebrity Big Brother', rumors were rife that the sprinter would be appearing on the show. However, Richardson politely declined the offer.

A representative told TMZ that the 21-year-old Olympic track star turned down the offer to appear on the hit reality show. "All coverage on her participating are false and simply just rumors," said the representative.

Richardson first sprinted her way through to the public eye way back in June 2021, during her trials for the 2020 Summer Olympics. The same was then pushed to the summer of 2021, because of the pandemic. Sources also claimed that stars like NeNe Leakes and Erika Jayne, won't be joining the series either. Speculation about the soon-to-release Season 3 began popping all over the 'Big Brother' message boards, as a result of which the news began to spread across social media. 

Aside from Richardson, her representative Ashley Blackwood denied that she was involved in the first place, although she did mention that her client was still being approached about joining the cast of the show.

Richardson won the 100-meter trials, at 10.86 seconds, thereby making her qualified for the games. She also ended up taking over Javienne Oliver, who finished at second place, 0.13 seconds, which in reality is a huge margin for the worldly competition.

Aside from her caliber, fans were quick to notice Richardson because of her iconic orange wig, long acrylic nails, and heavy false eyelashes, all in addition to her vibrant smile after she took over the competition.

Unfortunately, her hopes and dreams of competing at the Summer Olympics for 2020 fell through after she was tested positive for the use of cannabis. This factor made her big win get canceled altogether and thereby withheld her from competing in the said event at the Olympics.

Having said that, Richardson did admit to consuming a marijuana edible, she told a reporter, a week before the trials took place. She had done this in order to cope with the loss of her mother. 

She said to Today, "I want to take responsibility for my actions. I know what I did and what I’m not supposed to do. I know what I'm not allowed to do and I still made that decision. Not making an excuse or looking for any empathy in my case but being in that position of my life and finding out something like that — something that I would say has impacted my life positively and negatively in my life when it comes to dealing with the relationship with my mother — that definitely was a heavy topic on me".

Later, Richardson was featured in an ad by Beats by Dre. The advertisement also debuted Kanye West's song called, 'No Child Left Behind'. 

Some of the stars rumored to be cast on 'Celebrity Big Brother' are NeNe Leakes and Erika Jayne. On the contrary, sources close to both the reality stars told TMZ that neither of the two would be joining. Vanilla Ice, Tiffany Pollard, and Todrick Hall are some of the other stars who are rumored to be joining the cast of the reality show.
