Just when you thought Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were gone for good from NBC’s reality hit I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!, the couple returns Wednesday night.
But there may some groveling in store for the naughty twosome.
“We are going to go talk to the cast and we are going to say, ‘Guys, Spencer and Heidi want back in. We ourselves are not yet clear why, because we are going to be asking them live on TV, but should they complete a task set by producers, we would like you to decide whether or not you would like them back,’ ” says Paul Telegdy, NBC’s executive vice president of alternative programming.
Also on the show tonight, Daniel Baldwin surprises his brother Stephen Baldwin by officially joining the cast.
Jungle isolation, meanwhile, is starting to affect them. Says Telegdy, “John Salley’s been sobbing and crying and weeping like a man of his size rarely does! He had an argument with Janice [Dickinson] and in remorse was absolutely, honestly heartbroken.”
Telegdy adds, “so the reality is turning into reality, which is what this show was intended to do.”
Also for those keeping count – Heidi and Spencer have tried to quit the game three times. According to a rep for the couple, “Heidi and Spencer are still in the jungle and part of the show.” Telegdy says with a laugh, “Spencer and Heidi’s role is as ever a complete enigma!”
