Sanjaya still around, joins new reality show

SanjayaDanny already told you that ex-Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich might join the cast of the new NBC reality competition show I'm A Celebrity...Can I Get 15 More MInutes Of Fame, Please? I'll Even Eat A Bug If You Want Me To! Now the show has grabbed another cast member, former American Idol contestant Sanjaya.

If you're not familiar with the show that originated in Britian and aired a season on ABC in 2003, a bunch of celebrities are dropped in the jungle (in this case, Costa Rica) and have to survive using their wits, their charm, and ... their shiny white teeth, or something. Sanjaya and Blagojevich will be joined by Geraldo Rivera, Heidi and Spencer from The Hills, Dog The Bounty Hunter Duane Chapman, and model Janice Dickinson.

OK, the real title is I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Outta Here!, but you probably already knew that.

The article above says that Sanjaya released his memoirs a while back. His memoirs?!?

The sad part is out of the list of "celebrities" in the post, Sanjaya's the one I'd root for. Not that I'm an AI fan, but I find the rest of them too obnoxious to even consider caring about.

It really annoys me that "let's shoot for another 15 minutes" drivel like this gets greenlit while Chuck is on the bubble.

As sad as it sounds, I just saw his memoirs at the library. I thought the same thing: he has "memoirs"? Drawn by some strange force, I actually checked out the book. It is a fairly thick book (how could there be that much to say?). I have yet to open it.

Wow NBC really is run by morons. When I first read about this show I thought it wasn't such a bad idea, it could work. But that's if they had some REAL celebrities. This is obviously just stunt casting and sure a lot of people will tune in for the first episode, but after that no one is going to keep watching these annoying people. AND they are airing this a couple nights a week? NBC is gonna do horribly.
