I think you're right, but not at first. Most of us will tune in to see the finish of the elimination challenge ... then tune out.

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.... :(

Even that is stupid, why do they get to wear rain gear for that also?

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.


Don't you just love the drama? :rolleyes:

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.

Heidi and Spencer -- Quitters

http://www.tmz.com/2...encer-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

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.


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.

Did any of you catch this last night? :nono2:

This is a super turd of a show and I can’t believe they treat us peasants this way. At different times in the first episode I was like WTF, that team lost the food privilege and the winning team was told not to give any part of there food to the losers. That didn’t work, they all shared the winners food.

Another part was a contest for tribe leader and it was a total fail of a Competition from cheating by holding onto posts that had a bucket of some kind of sludge that if tipped onto person, said person would lose. Well said person did lose but was wearing a rain coat so she wouldn’t get her hair dirty, I guess.

There were so many things that should have insulted your intelligence. :mad:

And then I get my first glimpse of a married couple that are supposedly so popular that even people that live in the Uganda Jungle talk about them all day long. But for some reason I have never heard of them until last night, this couples name, the “Hills”. :confused:I must be living under a rock because I have never heard of them until last night.

I could go on but would rather be entertained by your thoughts on this show if you have any? :)


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

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

I'm sort of surprised that this train wreck did as well as it did in the ratings, I'm curious as to how many viewers they lose tonight. I know I'll be watching anything but this.

http://tvbythenumber...o-victory/19806


I am willing to bet it drops down tonight;)


I think you're right, but not at first. Most of us will tune in to see the finish of the elimination challenge ... then tune out.


The new numbers are in http://tvbythenumber...a-special/19940

We were right and I look for a bigger drop coming :P
