In case you missed it (no big surprise), Daniel was sent packing by America last night. Yes, Daniel - as in one-of-the-Baldwins - while the likes of Janice will stick around for at least another week. And the real kicker is that Janice didn't even place in the bottom three!

It's kinda hard to understand the voters choice, unless you come to terms with America's predilection for the inane ... or maybe it's a morbid curiosity of what other gross acts Janice can perform for us? Not a healthy indulgence. Either way, it was an upset not many saw coming.

The challenge returned to its old formula last night, giving Sanjaya's reach the edge over Holly's shorter frame in the "shopping" food challenge. She simple could not reach the grocery items that were hanging and that proved to be no obstacle for the taller Sanjaya. Needless to say, the men won. And what a reward it was! :sure: A plethora of Mexican re-fried beans, avocados and tortilla shells ... yum-yum!

If you missed this episode, good for you!

Janice is the choice of the "Vote for the Worst" website. They probably have an edge with this show given the limited viewership.

I don't suppose we'll know who won until the last broadcast on the 24th.

Do you happen to recall the movie, "The Truman Show"?? This whole thing could be taking place on a sound stage at the Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach.


The female host (no idea of her name, they are both utterly unmemorable) at one point on Wednesday said they were in a studio, before she corrected herself. I just found it interesting she used the word studio, which tends to mean inside. Surelyshe would have said set if she were outside. Someone who DVR'd it (there must be at least one crazy person at least!!!) can probably run it back and check.

What is more important is....

Who (the ****) voted for Janice to STAY??????????????????? :eek2::nono::eek2:

Yes, I caught the slip. No need to check your sanity ... she said it. At the time, my immediate reaction was like yours; "why say studio?" when she could have said "set" or "location". Given the great production value of this show however, I chose to ignore it. :rolleyes:

NBC "voted" for Janice to stay. Who else would want her?

Thank goodness, I thought I might have imagined it or I was hearing things. Oh well, four more shows to go and we'll see how long we have to suffer Janice.

Exclusive: Janice Dickinson rushed to Costa Rican medical facility

Well, Heidi and Spencer may have left the Costan Rican jungle for good -- finally -- but the drama on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" apparently continues.
A source close to the production tells me the self-proclaimed "world's first Supermodel," Ms. Janice Dickinson, was rushed by ambulance to the on-set medical facility this weekend after suffering from some sort of illness.
As of now, there's no word on what exactly ailed Janice, but I'm told the cameras have been following her every step of the way, so we'll likely find out on the show tonight.
I'm thinking John Salley and Daniel Baldwin poisoned her. You?

That was a pretty elaborate tunnel system for the middle of a Costa Rican jungle:rolleyes:

Especially when people were tossing the alligators into the pool of water, that must have been a whole other section of tunnel that we couldn't see:lol:

I quit the jungle. Too many insults to my intelligence. NBC is stupid for thinking we are. Enjoy.

Nothing really, hasn't really changed since day one.

I'm not PO'ed about it, I keep watching it because it is so fake and dramatic at the same time that it is pretty amusing to me now.

I can't stop watching:lol:

hahah I love the fact that the rain stops at the perfect time... I wish we could control our weather like that here. The tunnel was classic though... Could it be any more obvious that they are on a set someplace...

I was thinking the same thing.

But yet he was in the bottom 2 last week???

I wonder how many people actually vote? Maybe NBC males up the numbers:lol:

Or could it just be that NBC cooked the vote so they could name a black American the leader of the group? They've been pretty self-serving so far - right down to the GE comercials ...

Nah... :rolleyes:

I doubt that has anything to do with it considering he missed most of the questions.
