    "I'm a Celebrity" Premiere - 02/19

    PREMIERE

    TEN CELEBS GET DROPPED INTO AN INHOSPITABLE SECTION OF THE AUSTRALIAN RAIN FOREST, LIVE, ON THE PREMIERE OF ABC'S ALL-NEW REALITY SERIES, "I'M A CELEBRITY - GET ME OUT OF HERE!," WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19


    Ten celebrities will leave behind their pampered lives for weeks of roughing it in a remote camp in the Australian rain forest, on the premiere of "I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!," the fresh, interactive series to be broadcast live, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. The series will continue to air live for 15 consecutive nights on the Network.

    The all-star cast will be helicoptered in to a dense rain forest outpost in the interior of Australia's Gold Coast, live, as viewers in the U.S. watch. They are actress Maria Conchita Alonso; international sex symbol and famed model Tyson Beckford; sassy TV host "Downtown" Julie Brown; Olympic champion and successful business entrepreneur Bruce Jenner; dancer/choreographer Cris Judd; the man who coined the phrase "champagne wishes and caviar dreams," Robin Leach; Hollywood scion and fashion critic-of-the-stars Melissa Rivers; actress/model/former Playboy Playmate Nikki Schieler Ziering; 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 is host.

    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, showing how 10 celebrities fare without their accustomed luxuries, as they experience living with some of the world's most dangerous bugs and snakes. The celebrities will be living 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 or voting on ABC.com, Keyword: Celebrity.

    The phone numbers are:

    866-411-4081 Maria Conchita Alonso
    866-411-4082 Tyson Beckford
    866-411-4083 Julie Brown

    Well, tonight's the premiere of this show. Anyone planning on watching?

    I'll probably catch it on Sunday, when it's on for 2 hours right before Alias. Other than that, I won't watch it if anything better than a "Perfect Strangers" marathon is on.

    I gave it about 20 minutes and then turned off the television. I couldn't waste my time. Everything about it is lame, from their matching clothes, to the camp they have to the extremly annoying host and most of all the wanna be celebs. I doubt I tune in a again. This show makes the one episode of the Sureal Life I seen look good. I think I would seriously rather watch the Anna Nicole Smith show.

    I watched the episode and I thought it was really bad. Though it was funy when Melissa rivers had to put cockroaches in her pants.

    I actually liked it better than I thought I would. I will probably watch it again when I have nothing better to do.
    It occurred to me that no matter how bleak things might seem at times, at least I have a head. ----Stargazer
