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:

  • 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.

    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 🙂

    Fox has announced that other that new season of So You Think You Can Dance that will start tomorrow, they’ll have another new season on Fall! For Dance show lovers, this year is your good year. In the beginning of the year, there was Superstars of Dance, then new season of Dancing with the Stars (which crowned Shawn Johnson on the finale last night), Summer’s SYTYCD starting tomorrow on Fox, then both Dancing with the Stars and SYTYCD on Fall! It can’t get any better 🙂 By the way, if you are interested in auditioning for Fall’s SYTYCD, check out the open call schedule at fox.com/dance
