    I'm waiting for "I Should Be A Celebrity - Get Me A Show!!!". That's what Octo-mom did and now she has one in Britain. I really hope Americans tune it out and never let it come here.

    More than one contestant wants to do just that, pfp! The rest seem to want whatever moneys they can get for their respective charities. From what I saw last night, NBC would like us viewers to pay for that too.

    I wonder if the celebs are geting something for themselves? Anything this bad has to be a paid gig.

    I guarantee Heidi and Spencer are getting paid something, or they would have left last night. I'm sure some of that phone call to the producer was edited out so we couldn't hear what they talked about.

    Not me.

    When they first showed the dunk tank, I thought, "oh good, they're going to waterboard these idiots." I would have watched that.... :lol: Instead it's just bugs.... :(

    Probably. :lol: But I put in two hours of my time, so I'd like to see how they treat the first elimination... it's the masochist in me. :sure:

    Totally lame.. More than 1/2 the people I did not have a clue who they where. Watched about 20 minutes of it. Sanjia? Give me a break and the wife of a politician. Anything with Steven Baldwin in it you know is destine to be bad.

    Cracks me up. Winners get a chicken dinner. Loosers get Beans and rice. Real tough.

    This is going to get ugly real fast for NBC :lol::rolleyes:

    ----------

    Heidi and Spencer -- Quitters

    http://www.tmz.com/2009/06/02/heidi-and-spencer-quitters/

    Heidi and Spencer have followed through on their threat -- they have quit the NBC reality show "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!"

    A source close to production tells TMZ the "Hills" duo walked off the set for good after the live portion of last night's show. It is unclear how the show will handle their leaving on tonight's episode.

    Guess they weren't faking ... for a change.

    UPDATE -- We're told the Red Cross, the charity Spencer was playing for on the show, now wants nothing to do with the program. It's unclear whether they would have received anything anyway -- but regardless, the Spencer experience left a bad taste in their mouth

    This is suppose to be a strictly for charity event with the celebrities getting nothing more then a free vacation (once they are eliminated) and face time but that phone call last night made me suspicious on two fronts:

    1) Are they getting some kind of appearance fee? After watching 30 minutes of the show, I would almost guess that Spencer does nothing (not even call his mother) for free.
    2) Does Spencer have something to do with the production of the show? He and Heidi seemed to have a little more run of the place then anyone else.

    I'm sure the producers have some kind of guarantee in place where American Red Cross would get at least something. I suspect that each night the celebrities 'survive':lol: out there that amount goes up

    Or it's just more fake publicity to keep the idiots watching to see if they really do leave this time - I'll pass and read about it tomorrow......

    Well, maybe they really did quit - just publicity seeking idiots. Hope they crash and burn......

    We just got off the phone with the I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here quitter and he couldn't help but be thrilled with how things turned out for him and his new wife, Heidi Pratt.

    The newlyweds are on their way back home to LA and then leaving tomorrow for New York City, where they are going to be appearing on Letterman and a ton of other media appearances.


    Oh great, another Baldwin and a mystery female to take their place.....
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31069821/
    And, now there’s a surprise in store for remaining contestant Stephen Baldwin, 43, according to DailyFill.com — which reports that his older brother, Daniel Baldwin, is secretly in Costa Rica. Daniel, 48, is now poised to step in for the infamous Montag, 22, and Pratt, 25, who both twice threatened to walk off during the premiere episode.

    Funny thing is that I wouldn't consider any of those people to be celebrities.
