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:

  • Heidi & Spencer Pratt
  • Sanjaya Malakar
  • Stephen Baldwin
  • Janice Dickinson
  • John Salley
  • Torrie Wilson
  • Patti Blagojevich
  • Lou Diamond Phillip
  • Francis & Angela of Frangela
  • 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.

    If you like spy game, here’s a chance for you to win a car! If you watch Burn Notice, you know that Saab is the sponsor of the show, so they’re giving a way a grand prize of Saab 9-3 Convertible and Oliver Peoples Sunglasses like Michael wears as mini-prizes. The online game itself actually has already started up since July 17, the premier of Burn Notice (but I just found out about it). But no worries, you and I can still participate; the sweepstakes ends on Sept. 25, 2008. There are 9 missions, and they are given out each week. So if you register today, you have to complete the first 7 missions, and the last one will come next week along with the latest episode of Burn Notice.

    You can also enter the sweepstakes without playing, or play without entering the sweepstakes, so it’s up to you. To play the game (and enter sweepstakes), go to www.burnnoticeops.com, create an account, and play. To enter the Sweepstakes by email without playing/creating an account, send an email to webmaster@usanetwork.com. For more information and the rules of the game/sweepstakes, visit the website. Good luck 🙂

    On another tv show, I just finished watching America’s toughest jobs. Last week, the players were gold mining, this week, they had to become drivers at Monster Truck Jam. This challenge is my least favorite so far, because I’m not into racing and daredevil-type of show.
