Last night brought us the fantastically overdramatic premiere episode of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! - and WOW did Heidi and Spencer ever deliver the drama!
I thought these two were unbearable (and the train wreck you can't pull yourself away from) living their A-List lives on The Hills, but throwing these pampered brats into the jungle was magically delicious.
Yes, I'm certain the casting crew chose these two because they knew Heidi and Spencer would fall apart and also purposefully create drama, but fake or not, I adored watching them! It was fantastic to see Heidi have a heart attack about the rough conditions of the camp, not being able to sleep with Spencer (in both ways that can be meant), Spencer on the phone with NBC complaining about the low-level celebs they were stuck with and the terrible conditions, and oohh the freak-outs that came after all that! Spencer, I don't care if you think you're being a clever "villain," you are a jerk through and through, and we all adore to watch you make a fool of yourself repeatedly.
Oh wait, I'm sorry, he's a new Christian still learning to control his temper, so let's not be too harsh. As the hilarious "Frangela" said, afterall, you can't get mad when little children have temper tantrums because they're just learning to deal with their emotions and they don't know or mean what they're saying. Now, on that Christian note, fake freak-outs or not, God bless these celebs for putting up with Speidi for a day, much less the possible 3 weeks!
So after Spencer's 6th temper tantrum, the gang actually got to compete which was typical gross stuff like eating bugs and animal parts, pitting the women against the men.
So with the fun and grossness of the challenges so far and the engrossing drama that is Speidi plus the other competing celebs, were you loving this summer reality newbie, or were you not enthralled enough to stick around? Add your comments below!
Also, I'm representing SideReel in a blogger contest around this reality madness, "I'm a Blogger, Get Me Out of Here," which could send me to Costa Rica to live blog the finale!
