    I thought that quote would be fitting for a Turkey of a show as “I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!":lol:

    Well, you guys go ahead and boycott the show. I promised my wife that we would record the first week of it and decide later, so I have little choice. :(

    I have to admit though, that the on-camera/off-camera shenanigans are entertaining. That in itself is enough to keep me interested. Don't care who wins, just give me the drama. :D

    Maybe this is Seinfeld’s idea 10 years later

    A show about nothing, where people on the show can do what ever they want. Lets make a reality show where the contestant don’t have to play if they don’t want too, "the anti survivor show" where you the contestant make up the rules, people will love it……:lol:

    Last night's episode confirmed that Heidi and Spencer are gone. They left after they challenged each other to find stars in a dark, creature-infested room. Spencer won 2 to 1 but they never showed the team eating the fish reward or whether they (the men) shared their bounty with the women.

    Patti was voted by the men to recieve immunity from elimination, which was interesting.

    I still can't shake the suspicion that some or all of the contestants are in it for more than just the charity money. No proof, of course. It just bothers me that Patti, at this juncture in her chaotic life - with hubby a few trials away from jail - would take on the jungle. Of course, given the chance, so would have Rod. So I wonder if charity was the only incentive?...

    BTW ... the dunk tank did have a water element to it. :D

    Apparently not - what a joke of a show.

    Heidi & Spencer Pratt Remaining on I'm a Celebrity, Says Rep
    http://www.usmagazine.com/news/rep-heidi-and-spencer-pratt-remaining-on-im-a-celebrity-200936

    "Heidi and Spencer are still in the jungle and part of the show," their rep told Us Wednesday morning.

    Us can also exclusively report that Spencer's sister Stephanie and his friend Spenser (yes, there's another one, only spelled with an 's') were the people under the blankets at L.A.'s LAX airport Tuesday night. They were simply used as decoy to throw people off and give the illusion that Spencer and Heidi had returned to L.A., says a source.

    The way they jumped outta there, you could've sworm they added jolts to the water. :hurah:

    Yeah, gotta see what speidi's coming up with to explain their return. Besides, I gotta record it until the first contestant goes home ... so I'm stuck till Thursday. :mad:

    I wonder if NBC's been in on the hoax all along? Makes for interesting press ... not good press, mind you, but interesting. :rolleyes:

    Heidi won't be around very long if she is indeed back..
    As I understand the vote process, the person with the least amount of votes goes home. Heidi's name is not on the ballot (just checked NBC.COM) thus she would have the least, zero.

    The public is not going to put up with this on-off game very long before revolting. If they indeed are back tonight and Heidi receives some magic exemption then my suspicions that Speidi has something more to do with the show then just being on it will be confirmed.

    Now there's a thought... but I think there's a twist here...

    I just went to NBC's home page, from there I clicked on Vote Now ... all I got was the IAC-GMOH main page. Didn't see a link to vote. On top of that, Spencer's and Heidi's pictures are still blacked out with "Quit" written on them. My guess is that this will change after tonight's episode if they in fact return, giving people a chance to still vote with Heidi on the ballot. All that said, I agree that Heidi may well be on the chopping block.

    Also of interest is when you click on the "Celebrities and their Charities" link Spencer's pic and charity are no longer listed. I'll take that to mean that the ARC has backed out of their permission to post the logo. Heidi's charity is still posted.

    Heidi and Spencer made their plea to return during last night's episode, but still haven't rejoined the group. In penance, they will have to spend the night inside the lost chamber in the company of all those creepy-crawly-critters. On top of that, they'll have to abide by the results of a group vote regarding their return.

    In the meantime, Daniel Baldwin has been inserted into the men's group as a speidi "replacement". The program ended while the group was voting on accepting or rejecting speidi's return. (As can be expected, Daniel was against the return.)

    Film at 11, I guess. :p
