Okay, I admit it, I turned to NBC last night and, expecting Chuck, because I don’t always pay attention to what is supposed to be on, discovered the show Get Me Out of Here I’m a Celebrity. I vaguely remember seeing the commercials and thinking how there was no way I would watch the show. Whoops, I was wrong. So, I maybe, sorta, accidentally watched the whole two hours last night. It was great. I didn’t MEAN to like it. I didn’t expect to like it. It was the funniest thing I have seen on t.v. in some time. It was like Survivor but, with people who you vaguely remember from somewhere, and funny. Did I mention it was funny? Yeah, it was. Maybe that is what other reality shows have been missing. All the celebrities are trying to win money for a charity of their choice. There are obviously some people who I think are great right off the bat. Like Frangela, a comedy duo I had never heard of consisting of two women named Frannie and Angela. They found humor in everything and had great common sense advice. Like ignoring people who act like kids and throw temper tantrums even if they are adults. And, the people who I think are total and complete morons, like Spencer Bratt (No, that is NOT a typo.) and his puppet, I mean, wife. I think it was the phrase about him and Heidi picking a couple of the biggest charities so that if or when they left and their charities didn’t get the money, it would be no big deal, that made me ALMOST change the channel. Talk about self absorbed. Wow. It is a good thing those two keep telling the freaking camera how they recently became saved and saying crap like “Praise Jesus” or other similar phrases or we sure as hell (no pun intended) wouldn’t have a clue. I read an article on Yahoo saying how it was horrible and had a bad viewing, ect., ect. I think they were a little harsh. I do see where it may not be able to hold my attention during a regular season when I have my “regular” shows to watch. But, right now, everything is reruns and nature documentaries I have seen before, or this show. So, it looks like I MIGHT possibly be watching it. I mean, I already accidentally watched the first show, so I might as well keep watching just to see what happens. Like, who develops malaria first. For more info about the show, like who all is on it ( I think it has an interesting diversity of celebrities.) and what all happened, check them out at nbc.com.
UPDATE: So, I watched, maybe one more episode before my schedule got too busy for it. So, yeah, I don’t know what happened. And, I don’t regret missing it or anything. Ah, well, easy come, easy go. Summer is here, I don’t have time for schedules anyway.
