NBC has released a partial cast list for its upcoming reality series I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, debuting June 1. Three additional participants and theshow’s host will be announced at a later date. First reaction to the names below: they kinda blow. But then, I remembered the beauty of this show — at least when ABC did it in 2003 — is that in addition to voting on who goes home, viewers also get to choose which celebs do what humiliating and/or horrifying challenges. So you want a cast that kinda blows so you can torture them (for charity!).
Now how does the cast look to you? Who should take those final three spots? (Sorry Rod Blagojevich.) And because we always like to play nice: Which of these people would you least like to make feel uncomfortable and terrified? I’m gonna give my PopWatcher save to Stephen Baldwin, who, believe it or not, has a nut guard in my eyes for his work with Corbin Bernsen on Celebrity Mole Hawaii.
NBC’s confirmed cast:
Stephen Baldwin, actor
Janice Dickinson, former model
Sanjaya Malakar, former American Idol finalist
Heidi Montag, The Hills star
Spencer Pratt, The Hills star
John Salley, former NBA player
Torrie Wilson, wrestling champ
