So I know I was just whining about how all the good reality shows are done for the Summer. But as a commenter on that post rightly pointed out, we’re less than a week away from the train-wreck that will be season 2 of “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” I’m pretty excited about it, mostly because it will offer 15 episodes full of some of my most hated celebrities suffering and being put in mortal danger.
These celebs will be plopped down in (or at least sorta near) the land of Aztec’s Treasure and Crystal Waters, but they won’t be hiking through ruins or swimming with dolphins. Instead, they’ll be itching, sweating and suffering in the forests of Costa Rica while they eat bugs, bathe in crocodile infested waters and wrestle snakes. I can’t wait.
If you’re not already convinced why a show about suffering in the jungle will be awesome, keep in mind who the celebrities actually are. Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Janice Dickenson, Sanjaya from American Idol, a Baldwin brother (I’m not sure which Baldwin, but it doesn’t matter). The entire world benefits when all these people are locked away in a far off jungle somewhere, surrounded by poison bugs and hungry and toothy critters. “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” will air for 15 episodes, starting with a 2 hour premier on June 1, 2009. And if you want to try your own luck at surviving and thriving in the jungle, play the online slot Aztec’s Treasure now.
