I’m Not A Celebrity, But Get Me Out of Here Anyway

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Gossip, Video,


Week two of opened with a two-hour episode that featured more drama, more challenges and more spotlight-stealing shenanigans.

Speaking of stealing the spotlight, Heidi and were the first topic of discussion. Cameras recorded the action as they were locked into an isolation chamber for the night. This was the only way the couple could prove themselves, but it still wouldn’t guarantee their acceptance by the other campers - for all had to agree it was okay for them to return. Heidi prayed for strength many times during their long night.

“They’re so hated. People can’t stand them - that’s why I love them so much,” told the camera.

How Does NBC Feels About Speidi’s Celebrity Antics?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Gossip, Rumors, Video,


When compared his and wife Heidi’s fame to that of Brad and Angelina, it was only one more in a long line of similar egotistical comments the MTV reality star has made regarding his own celebrity status. Someone please explain to Pratt that a show which averaged 3 million viewers in its fifth season (that would be The Hills, Pratt’s big claim to fame) doesn’t compare to box office megahits like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (which has earned more than $329 million internationally). See how Pratt stacks up against Angelina on the Forbes fortune list .

He calls himself a super-celebrity and says he’s far too famous to hang out with the likes of Lou Diamond Phillips, Sanjaya Malakar and Stephen Baldwin, among others. But it’s true that Heidi Montag and hubby have garnered major press for the newest show to feature the pair - mostly, because we’re amazed any two people could be so fanatically in love with themselves.

The bratty Pratts have already left on three separate occasions (that we know about), subsequently returning each time. It’s up in the air whether or not they’ll be welcomed back with open arms after they rested and refreshed themselves away from the show - the next chapter in their story won’t be revealed until the show airs Monday.

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Gossip, Video,


There’s something vastly entertaining about seeing usually-spoiled celebs make do without their fancy cars, pretty clothes and expensive amenities…and some are obviously adapting better than others. The stars of do have a few personal possessions to ease the sting of constantly camping out, however. So, what do reality TV celebrities need to make it for days on end in Costa Rica?

Each cast member of the show was allowed to bring three pairs of underwear and three swimming outfits when they were deposited in the wilds of Costa Rica. But each was also allowed to bring a personal item to help ease the pain of family and creature comfort separation for their duration on the show. So…what’d they all bring?

Speidi’s Celebrity Status Still Unknown

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Gossip,

Thursday’s would give viewers their first taste of elimination. One celebrity would be pushed off the show, as determined by your vote. Which one is the least fave to the show’s fans? We would soon find out.

Angela, Frances, Janice and Torrie are subject to the results of the vote. Like American Idol, Celebrity voters decide who they want to keep. We don’t get to decide whether or not we want to keep Speidi, who has now tried to leave the show three times. That decision is up to the celebs still remaining on the show. They were deliberating the subject when the Wednesday episode wrapped.

This conversation continued at the top of the Thursday episode. “I would leave if they came back,” Angela threw her cards on the table. “There are actions, and there are consequences,” said to the camera, suggesting that perhaps the spoiled Pratts have had few occasions to realize this reality.

Who is the mysterious twelfth cast member to join ? Would Heidi and Spencer Pratt return to the jungle and the competition? What the heck did supermodel Janice Dickinson do to make NBA pro John Salley blow his lid? All these questions would be answered by the Wednesday broadcast of the show.

By virtue of Lou Diamond Phillips’s choice to make Patti Blagojevich exempt from the nationwide vote, she would not be subject to elimination this week. praised her “great attitude” and the fact that she’s a “team player.” Even the other women seemed pleased with the decision - though it left all of them in a vulnerable position.

I’m a Celebrity: Speidi Gets Out of There

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt

The second night of marked the first voting round of the competition. This was the public’s first change to choose who would stay and who would go. The results of this vote will be revealed later in the week.

The show opened with the rest of the trauma tank challenge. Patti Blagojevich was the first celeb, in this episode, to ask for release from the spider, insect and snake-filled tank of torment. Water then started to seep in around everyone’s heads. Snakes began to wrap themselves around former wrestling diva Torrie Wilson’s face and Lou Diamond Phillips was soon taking in too much water - he was forced to pull up and out of the challenge. Torrie Wilson also had to rise because of the water. This left Stephen Baldwin and , who became the winner of the challenge. This means the blue team - the men - won immunity, and would therefore be safe no matter the results of the public vote. And just like that, the first real challenge was over and done - with Malakar, the youngest of the bunch, emerging as the victor.

I’m a Viewer - Get Me More Celebrity!

I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here

premiered live last night from “deep” in the Costa Rican jungle, though the opening sequence was obviously filmed on a set. I’m not saying it wasn’t in Costa Rica, I’m just saying it was definitely a sound stage.

Each celeb - and we’re using that term loosely - is competing in order to win money for the charities of their choice. And media exposure. Only the promise of cameras could lure some of them so far away from the posh worlds they generally inhabit.

Two teams of eleven “stars” were then deposited in the jungle by helicopter. Their first unofficial challenge was wading across a stream. Patti Blagojevich was quickly swept into the current and carried downstream as fellow cast mates shouted after her.

It was obvious, even very early in the series, that only some parts of this broadcast are live. The clip of the two hosts standing on their set was a live feed, but the footage of celebs trekking across the river patently was not. When you see “live” at the top of the screen, that’s when you’re dealing with real time.

The red team now safely on their way to camp, it was time for the yellow team to make their own way in the jungle.

VFTW Gets Behind Speidi of The Hills

Spencer Pratt and Heidi MontagYou may want to run for The Hills when you see Spencer and Heidi Pratt on , which launches tonight on NBC. The show, which aired in 2003 (and was subsequently canceled shortly thereafter) has been re-introduced to the schedule, evidently because there aren’t enough good ideas for reality TV anymore. Vote For the Worst is already backing the couple in their usual tongue-in-cheek way, and their reports from the jungles of Costa Rica are the most interesting aspect of the entire show.

The anti-American Idol site has some connection to the series, as Season 6 Idol contender is among the cast. But it’s not Malakar - or his hair - that’s drawn quick attention from the site, even before a single minute of the new season has been aired. According to VFTW, “if we like it, we’ll start voting for the worst as always.” And while nothing is official, they’re already leaning strongly toward MTV’s most famous celebrity pair.

Rod Blagojevich’s Wife Fills His Reality Shoes

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Gossip,

Rod and Patti Blagojevich

Illinois’ former governor might not be heading to Costa Rica anytime soon, but that won’t keep a Blagojevich from competing on NBC.

Although a federal judge recently barred Rod Blagojevich from traveling out the country, his family has found a new way to pay for their legal fees. Starting next month, Rod’s wife will find herself face-to-face with other D-listers on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.

“I don’t feel I’m a celebrity. NBC wanted my husband on the show, and when he was unable to go, they expressed interest in me,” Patti explained to the Today show. “In this terrible economic time, I feel it’s necessary to go to work to support my family.” The mother of two also said her reality show debut would give her a chance to repair her public image. (Because as we all know—what is uttered on wiretaps is never repeated in the jungle.)
