Last night's episode confirmed that Heidi and Spencer are gone.

Apparently not - what a joke of a show.

Heidi & Spencer Pratt Remaining on I'm a Celebrity, Says Rep
http://www.usmagazin...elebrity-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:

As of last night, the show claimed they were history. Of course, E! now says it's not so ... for now. :sure:

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

I am shocked they are even having a 2nd one. The first one tanked and from what I can tell of the people in the 2nd one they have dropped the bar a couple of notches down.

Agreed! With the exception of one or two, I wouldn't even classify them as being celebrities.

I still smell a rat on this. If Speidi ends up getting voted back in, it will only confirm what I'm thinking...

I actually enjoy Wipeout. Nothing like watching multiple people face plant.. What people will do for a 1/24 chance of winning 50K.

In my opinion..

Celebrity + Reality Show = UGH!!

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy "Wipeout" as well.

I really can not think of a celebrity edition of any reality show that has done well.

How about a celebrity edition of "Dirty Jobs". Have the fans determine the most disgusting jobs Mike Rowe has ever had to do and have the celebs give it a whirl!

Does anyone remember this show from 2003. I don't, but one of my kids does. He said he watched on episode.

I can't believe I keep watching this show. Most of it is watched in 3x though. Only takes about 15 minutes per 1 hour show.
