Only one day in and Heidi and Spencer already want out of the reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! The two D-listers thought the show, which is being filmed in Costa Rica, would be a roller coaster of fun with activities like lounging on the beach, staying at the Four Seasons, working out and getting a tan. Turns out none of that has happened.
“They wanted to be treated like stars,” a high-level source on the series tells E! News’ Ryan Seacrest. “[Spencer] literally thought he and Heidi were staying in a Four Seasons, working out and getting a tan.”
The two refused to eat the same food as the rest of the cast, and complained about being teamed with low-wattage stars, among them former model/reality show queen Janice Dickinson, actors Stephen Baldwin and Lou Diamond Phillips, former NBA star John Salley and American Idol castoff Sanjaya Malakar. An NBC exec had to coax the newlyweds to remain on board.
“I wish they got some real celebrities like K-Fed,” groused Montag, per the network insider.
K-Fed has about as much wattage as a 20-year-old light bulb. You could make a battery out of a potato and have more star power than him. Still, I’m amazed Spencer and Heidi made it out of the first day. Odds are that by the end of the second, they’re probably going to be stumbling out of the jungle covered in filth, wearing only underwear they fashioned out of leaves and carrying makeshift spears. When producers ask them how this happened in only six hours, Spencer will start talking in a language he and Heidi made up.
