The least-anticipated show of the summer makes its debut tonight at 8 pm. In case you’ve been trying to forget, 11 D-list famehos celebrities will fight to extend their 15 minutes on the NBC series “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!”
NBC tried to make the motley group of had-beens and never-weres sound interesting with this tidbit from their press release:
Heading into the jungle to compete in the wild are: actor Stephen Baldwin (“The Usual Suspects”), Patti Blagojevich (wife of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich), supermodel and television star Janice Dickinson (“America’s Next Top Model,” “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency”), multi-talented actor Lou Diamond Phillips (“La Bamba,” “Stand and Deliver”), 2007 “American Idol” contestant Sanjaya Malakar, Spencer and Heidi Pratt (stars of MTV’s “The Hills”), NBA great and television personality John Salley (“Best Damn Sports Show Period”), WWE wrestler and beauty queen Torrie Wilson — and comedy duo (and real life best friends) Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton, also known as “Frangela.”
With this list, it’s not so much a question of who you’d like to have win, but rather which one you’d rather see get eaten by a wild animal, or develop an incurable case of jungle rot. Since there are reports that Speidi have already tried to quit twice in two days, the pair don’t seem likely to make it to the finals. But they should be good for a few laughs as long as they stick around.
