Category — I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here
We have seen Pauline Hanson twirl on Dancing With The Stars, Anna Bligh on Celebrity Masterchef, and Prime Minister Julia Gillard make a guest appearance on Junior Masterchef, but a Tory UK politician has decided to pack her bags, dump her constituent responsibilities and go on popular UK reality show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Nadine Dorries, the Member for Mid Bedfordshire says the rationale for her going on the show to reach the 16 million viewers and that is where politicians should be going to get their opinions known. Has she actually watched the program it is not a reality TV version of Q&A, and has challenges that are related to eating and doing weird and slightly humiliating acts to take them out of their comfort zones.
Also has she seen the editing of these shows it is not going to be a great platform for her to spout policy issues.
Critics of hers suggest that it is the $60,000 payment which lured her onto the show.
Thankfully the Conservative Party have seen sense and have suspended her. I will be interesting to know if her colleagues will be voting her off or wanting to keep her in the “jungle”. The show is filmed in Far North NSW and usually screens on UKTV here.

Sinitta has a pretty impressive resume of ex- boyfriends, when she admitted on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here she had gone out with Brad Pitt for two years. She dated him before he shot to stardom in Thelma and Louise.
Another ex of hers is Simon Cowell, on the show the other contestants asked her who was better in bed. She was circumspect. (Source: Marie Claire UK)
Maybe this dreadful ’80′s song Toy Boy was about him.

Former The Biggest Loser host Ajay Rochester is pitching for the latest big game in town – to be host of Your Own Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star, Winfrey’s new cable network reality show.
When she moved to the US, her dream was to make it onto Oprah’s couch, but this won’t be occurring due to the show finishing. However being a talk show host would be a role that Ajay would think she would perfect at. In fact I am surprised she has not pitched herself as the the Australia Chelsea Lately.
In yesterday’s Daily Telegraph it says she is looking for people to vote for her.
With her votes currently wallowing at four figures, into Confidential‘s email basket at the weekend lobbed an appeal from Rochester.
“I have till the 3rd of July to get a few million votes in order to be a finalist … easy for some … eeeek … who knows, maybe I still have some loyal followers in Oz?” she confided.
The former host of The Biggest Loser has called her concept show Been There Done Fat.
“Hi, my name is Ajay Rochester,” the pitch starts.
“I want to do a show where I inspire others to step up and keep fighting the battle. They say you have to walk a mile in someone’s shoes to know how they feel, well let me tell you I have walked a thousand miles in those shoes.”
Rochester’s main rivals yesterday were disabled Texan Zach with 8,816,576 votes, a wheelchair-bound man with plans for a travel show, and black teacher Dr Phyllis with 6,795,538.
This leaves Rochester, with 1105 votes, way off the pace.
Her chances of winning are looking slim at this stage. However if this turns pear shaped she can always pitch to Channel Nine for a spot on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Funnily enough commenters have been on the money for people who may be in the running to be on the rumour reality show. Sophie Monk and Rob Mills have also been mentioned as people who may be try and improve their media profiles by going into the jungles of South America and allowing all sorts of indignities to happen to them.
Thanks Paul and Culinary Boner for sending me the article.

In I can’t believe it is true with rumours that Channel Nine may be considering doing an Australian version of I’m A Celebrity….. Get Me Out Of Here.
According to the Sunday Telegraph “Melbourne socialite” Brynne Edelsten told them she had been approached to appear on the show. Apparently the show would be shot in South America on the same set of Wipeout.
No other word on who else they may be considering, however does Australia have the amount of celebrities of the calibre of Brynne to actually be in the cast?
Channel Nine have said “We’ve been looking for something, because Nine doesn’t have a MasterChef or Dancing With The Stars” the source said.
“So it would be a good fit, but it’s expensive – probably about $2 million a week”.
Who else would be good on the show. I expect Clare Chk Chk Boom Werbeloff looks like a perfect fit for the show as she now has a cover of Ralph magazine on her resume.
Who would you cast in the show?
