    "I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!" Press Release

    ALL-STAR CAST, HOST ARE ANNOUNCED FOR THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK'S "I'M A CELEBRITY -- GET ME OUT OF HERE!"

    Lineup Includes Tyson Beckford, "Downtown" Julie Brown, Bruce Jenner, Robin Leach, Melissa Rivers, Alana Stewart and Stuttering John


    The ABC Television Network today announced seven members of the celebrity cast for "I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!" They are: International sex symbol and famed model Tyson Beckford; sassy TV host "Downtown" Julie Brown; Olympic champion and successful business entrepreneur Bruce Jenner; the man who coined the phrase "champagne wishes and caviar dreams," Robin Leach; Hollywood scion and fashion critic-of-the-stars Melissa Rivers; actress Alana Stewart (former wife of rocker Rod Stewart and actor George Hamilton); and Howard Stern's infamous radio cohort, Stuttering John. Standup comic/improv performer John Lehr will be the host.

    An eighth cast member will be announced at a later date. In the fresh, all-new interactive series, to be broadcast live over an unprecedented 15 consecutive nights during February 2003, celebrities leave behind their pampered lives for weeks of roughing it in a remote outpost of the inhospitable Australian rainforest. Based on the phenomenally successful British hit of the same name, the series will let American viewers on the other side of the globe vote to control the action via the phone and the internet.

    The series will follow the U.K. version of seeing how eight celebrities fare without their accustomed luxuries, as they experience one of the world's toughest terrains. The celebrities will live out in the open, sleeping on makeshift cots in primitive conditions and trading their gourmet meals for rice, beans and water. And all under the control of the viewing audience. In week one, they will be at the mercy of television viewers who single out a celebrity a night to undertake a dare -- "The Bush Tucker Trial" -- in order to win extra food for the rest of the group. In the final week, viewers vote to keep their favorite contestant in the camp; the one receiving the least number of votes each night is forced to leave. The lone, remaining celebrity at the end of the trial will emerge as the King - or Queen - of the Jungle and win a sizable sum for their favorite charity.

    Viewers can participate by either calling phone lines (which will be announced prior to the commencement of the series) or voting over ABC.com.

    "I'm a Celebrity -- Get Me Out Of Here!" is produced by Granada Entertainment USA. John Saade and Natalka Znak are executive producers; Richard Cowles is producer of the series.

    For those of you who don't know, this is the series that "Survivor" execs were suing to prevent them airing it. CBS just lost the lawsuit, and of course ABC is right there to air it.

    Stuttering John, if I recall, is a guy on the Howard Stern show who they make fun of.

    I don't know who Alana Stewart is.

    I'm not sure that being a spouse of a celebrity should qualify you to be on a show titled "I'm a celebrity"...

    It'll be a far cry from "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous."

    Robin Leach will be roughing it in the Australian rainforest for two weeks on ABC's newest reality show.

    "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" will air next month for 15 straight nights.

    The big-name contestants will sleep on cots and live off rice, beans and water.

    Some celebrities featured on the show are model Tyson Beckford, "Downtown" Julie Brown, Olympic swimming champ Bruce Jenner, Melissa Rivers, Alana Stewart, Stuttering John from the Howard Stern show and Mr. champagne wishes and caviar dreams" himself, Robin Leach.

    Another cast member will be announced later.

    Viewers will choose which celebrities complete dares, and which ones are asked to leave.

    The winner is named King or Queen of the Jungle and will get cash for their favorite charity.

    the ads with Melissa Rivers and Robin Leach are pretty funny.

    Man that Melissa has one HUGE mouth, literally and figuratively, but gawd, she looks like pac man with that jawspan.

    Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.
