Today, the remaining 9 players woke up, all smiling, because of Speidi-free. However, there was still a drama between John and Janice. Janice refused to lend John her shampoo – I half agree, as he is bald why did he need shampoo for? And John went balistic, even calling Janice names, and Janice broke down. After cooling down, he realized that he went overboard, so he went to apologize, but was rejected.
The day continued with food trial, and since Janice was sick, she didn’t participate. Today’s challenge was team challenge, the first team to collect 4 stars would win. First off, it was John and Francis, they had to grab a star on a hole full of spiders. John had fear of spiders, and Francis went nuts, but John won. Second, Torri vs. Lou, this time, the hole was full of rats, they both got bitten good, but in the end Lou won. Next, it was Sanjaya vs. Patti, and Patti won, follwed by Stephen vs. Angela on iguana hole, and Stephen won. So, guys had 3 stars, ladies had 1 star only, they continued the game. Last, John vs. Francis again on toad hole, and John won again, so the guys got their 4 stars, and they won the food trial, again, so they got to eat pork tonight. And then Stephen, got bitten by giant ant.
After the challenge, everything went back to normal – and for the first time, peaceful. Even though Janice hadn’t forgiven John, at least they weren’t quarelling. What good reality show let such a peaceful situation happening too long? The stir up the situation by introducing a new member of the team: Daniel Baldwin, Stephen’s brother. But rest assured, his apperance was welcomed, compared to what they’d react when they see Speidi’s return.
Yes, ladies and gentlement, Speidi didn’t leave Costa Rica, and they intended to return to the show. During the interview with the host, Heidi said they made a mistake and realize that it was all for the charity, and Spencer was sorry for his behavior. Ha, like I’m going to buy that, but moving on… When the news was revealed to the members, they were told if Speidi spent a night in the Lost Chamber, they could come back to the show. They had to vote whether or not Speidi would be back or not. We’ll see what they decided on tomorrow’s show.
It’s 2nd day of I’m Celebrity show (4 days for the celebrities), and a lot happened. On Trauma Tank challenge, Janice and Frangela forfeited the fastest, followed by John Salley. John then bugged Patti and Torri into forfeiting. So the last players standing were the boys: Stephen Baldwin and Sanjaya, but in the end Sanjaya won again, so the boys won immunity.
Other things that happened on 2nd day: Angela of Frangela has had a couple fo melt down, Lou got a tent with mattress for being camp leader, and Spencer got baptized by Stephen Baldwin 😯 before calling it quit, again, claiming that they’re too rich and too famous for the show. Well, before getting baptized and quitting, Spencer and Heidi went to food trial, where they had to collect stars on pitch-black Lost Chamber filled with bugs, snakes, slimes, and all other good stuff. Spencer managed to collect 2, while Heidi only collected 1, so the boys got fish for dinner today. Oh, Patti also talked about her husband (oh, it was yesterday, but still worth mentioning).
So back to Speidi, they left the jungle (although I have a strong feeling that they’ll be back), so there were 9. Since Sanjaya won Trauma Tank, the 4 guys were safe, but the remaining 4 gals weren’t. Yes, only 4 women are up for elimination, because the guys could save 1 woman from elimination, and they choose Patti. Who will be eliminated? America will decide, because now, the phone lines to vote is open. Call 1-877-5-keep-xx. Replace “xx” with 01 to vote for Angela, 02 for Francis, 04 for Janice, and 11 for Torri. You can also vote on nbc.com. The result will be announced on Thursday’s show. But that doesn’t mean that there’ll be no show tomorrow, rest assured that there will be more horrifying and disgusting challenges, and of course, drama.
I never watched The Hills, but I have heard that Spencer Pratt is the villain on that show, and just understand why from watching the premier of I’m Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here. Before I started dishing about what happened, just in case you don’t know, let me tell you about the show. It’s a reality shows where 11 celebrities are dumped on the heart of Costa Rican jungle. For 3 weeks, they will play for their choice of charity, of course each time, one of the celebrities will get eliminated. The show will run “live” 4 nights a week (Mon – Thu) for 3 weeks. Previously it was announced that there would be 10 celebrities, including Rod Blagojevich, were listed to be on the show. But due to his alleged corruption, he was not allowed to leave US for the taping of the show, so his wife came and replaced him. So, here’s the list of the celebrities on the show:
In the beginning, the celebrities were divided into 2 teams: Red and Yellow. On Red team: Speidi, Janice, John, and Patti. On Yellow: Frangela, Stephen, Torri, Lou, and Sanjaya. They came separately, and only met up at their camp. To no one’s surpise, Spencer & Heidi were so shocked that they decided to leave on the evening of the first day. Spencer complained to NBC’s chairman, that because it’s a celebrity show, they should be treated like a star 😆 But they came back, I think NBC won’t let them go too fast, because they’re Speidi! I even speculate that even they’re voted out by the viewers, they’ll still be in the show.
On the next morning, while everyone was doing their chores, Speidi disappeared – I assumed they crossed the bridge where the show crews were and wanted to leave again, but were persuaded to stay again. So the rest of the players thought they would just split up Speidi’s belongings. So they were surprised when they saw them came back. Spencer seeing their hairspray’s label peeled lost his head and start throwing tantrum. He’s particularly mad at Torri who made fun of them with the hairspray, so to get his revenge, he hid Torri’s bag. Later he apologized, for his behaviour, but in camera confession, he admitted that he wasn’t being sincere at all.
So on their first task, the teams were mixed up; instead of Red and Yellow team, it’s Male vs. Female now. The first challenge was a food trial, where they had to eat various “delicatessen” such as: scorpion, tarantula, tripe, cow intestine shake, rat tail, iguana tail, etc. Even though it only lasted for few seconds, the highlight of the challenge was Sanjaya eating iguana tail in one gulp, no biting, straight swallowing 😆 The men won, so they got to eat chicken and fruits, but they shared the food with the women. As Sanjaya put it, “we are suckers for pretty faces.”
On the next day, the teams had to choose a leader. Lou and Janice was chosen, and they were battling for Camp leader for the week. They had to hold their arms up, and whoever held it the longest, would win. Janice made a deal with Lou, so Lou was declared winner. As the camp leader, he got to eat dinner every night, regardless his team’s performance, and he got to assigned chores to the team members and got pampered – Sanjaya would foot-message him.
So the live part of this premier was when the players went for Trauma Tank challenge. They would lie down on a plank, head side down, into a shallow tank with bugs in it. As I expected, Speidi got to sit-out on this challenge. So 9 celebrities went on the Trauma Tank, and the last person standing will win his/her team immunity from viewer’s vote, but the challenge isn’t over tonight, it’ll continue tomorrow. So stay tuned, tomorrow at NBC at 8 pm EST.
17 years is a long span of time, hence an era, for someone to be on TV 5 nights a week. Jay Leno finally decided to step down, 1.5 hour earlier, to prime time. As for the guest on his last late night show, who else is better than his own successor, Conan O’Brien. A lot of people have been debating whether or not this is a smart move – for both NBC and Jay. But as far as I’m concerned, I don’t have any objection about it. FOX and CW have taken their 10 pm prime time slot for News, why can’t NBC use their 10 pm prime time for talk show?
Anyways, Yahoo! TV has writen a page for the most memorable moments of the show. While we wait until September, don’t forget to watch Conan’s first week on Tonight Show 🙂
The beautiful Reese Witherspoon visited The Ellen Show, and Ellen helped her writing the acceptance speech for Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Award. Using Mad Libs, Ellen “wrote” an acceptance speech 😆 and Reese said that Amazing Race is her favorite show! I embed the clip below, enjoy 🙂

Another Summer is coming, and so is 3rd season of Burn Notice! For those of you who don’t know, Burn Notice new season will air on different time this season 9/8 pm EST. So set your alarm clock/calendar reminder and tune in to USA Network, June 4, 2009.
Update: Another good news. Despite the rumor that Burn Notice would not be shot in Miami anymore, they’re staying in Miami. The studio where stars and crews have called home was almost put up for sale, and the show was almost evicted from Miami. But no worries, those people in the officies in South Florida know how much exposure Burn Notice brought to their cities. It’s like a free tourism advertisement.
