    Celebrity Boot Camp

    Supposedly, Celebrity Boot Camp starts on September 20th on Fox. I cannot find it in the TV listings, however.... Things that make you go hmmm....

    From the AP:

    Friday, August 30, 2002

    LOS ANGELES Celebrities often partake in grueling exercise regimes and strict diets, but apparently some of them are gluttons for punishment.


    Several entertainers have signed up to get their butts kicked a la basic training in Fox's new show, Celebrity Boot Camp.

    Former Brady Bunch brother Barry Williams, Renegade star Lorenzo Lamas, one time pop idol turned Playboy bunny Tiffany, Baywatch actress Traci Bingham and former Milli Vanilli member Fabrice Morvan are among a bunch of celebs who have enlisted -- at least temporarily.

    The show, based on last year's celebrity-free Boot Camp, pairs these B-list stars with two real-life Marine Corps instructors who will run them through a variety of mental and physical tests.

    The weak contestants will be eliminated one by one until just two remain. The finalists will then participate in "The Gauntlet," an eight-hour battle of brains and brawn. The winner, who will take home up to $100,000, will be determined using a combination of the dismissed recruits' votes and total "Gauntlet" victories.

    "Deprived of their usual luxuries, the celebrities will be forced to put their own personal limits to the test," according to a release from the network.

    And for some celebs, the hardcore lifestyle was quite a shock. "I was like Private Benjamin," Tiffany told Fox News referring to the 1980 Goldie Hawn comedy. "I showed up with my makeup bag and my hair dryer and all that stuff."

    But for the most part, when camp is on so is the competition.

    "When I hit the base dog, I'm not Coolio anymore," said the rapper famous for the mid-'90s hit "Gangsta's Paradise." "I'm recruit ivy. I'm gung-ho."

    And a couple of the participants even did some research before they started training to get themselves psyched for the challenge.

    "I watched Company 'C' last night. That might help," said Barry Williams, who also participated in Celebrity Boxing earlier this year.

    "I watched An Officer and a Gentlemen five times last night. I'm ready," former O.J. Simpson houseguest Kato Kaelin said.

    But not everyone seemed so confident.

    "These are 40-year-old bones, man," said former Falcon Crest star Lorenzo Lamas. "They've been through a lot already."

    But that kind of attitude isn't the way to come out on top, according to Williams. "I think we're looking for people who can stick it out, can challenge themselves and be winners."

    Celebrity Boot Camp kicks off Sept. 20 on Fox.

    Hi guys!
    I have not seen any previews shown on TV! I'm going to watch it anyway, just because it has the military , but I have a feeling it will be disappointing. Okay...Away with those negative feelings! I'm sure we'll have fun at the expense of the ::ahem:: ...celebrities! :p

    I went to FOX's site, and Celebrity Boot Camp is not listed on their Fall Line-up show. That's weird. Anyway, I emailed FOX asking about CBC. Hopefully, they will email me back so we'll know what's up.

    That was a good idea Wolf.
    I think this would be a good show, although I would prefer another non-celebrity version.

    I would prefer they put their money into another military show that uses actual military people (bright idea: like Combat Missions! ) instead of using civilians and putting them into a military situation.

    This list of "celebrities" has many of the same "celebrities" who went on Celebrity Fear Factor, which Coolio won, Celebrity Dog Eat Dog (Kato was in the dog pound and Sue Hawk won the cash after Richard Hatch did NOT know the answer to the final question), Celebrity The Weakest Link, Celebrity Boxing and I can't even tell you how many other silly shows. They're doing a circuit, not that I mind. I'll laugh my ass off at them no matter what embarrassing situations they get filmed in.
