They’re baaaaack! Just when we hoped the dirty duo of Spencer and Heidi Pratt were off the island for good, they just keep hanging around like a bad case of crabs.
Stories about whether “The Hills” pair are in or out on ”I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!” have been circulating all day, but late afternoon brought the bad news, via the L.A. Times. Despite that elaborate ruse at LAX last night, the gruesome twosome is still in Costa Rica—and worse yet, still on the show.
NBC executive vice president of alternative programming Paul Telegdy told the Times that the pair would face a ”jungle-based purgatory challenge in which they will have to spend the night in solitary confinement” in order to be allowed back on the show. While the thought of seeing these two in purgatory is mildly interesting, I’d rather see them do something really challenging, like try not to whine for 24 hours.
Shouldn’t Heidi automatically be a goner this week, since the viewers had the chance to vote for the ladies last night, but her name wasn’t even in the running? But this is a “reality” series, so you never know what will happen. Except, of course, that the network and producers will do anything for ratings.

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.
