With Ten determined to keep the names of its celebrity survival show contestants a secret, we offer up our own list, including Miss Monk
Aformer high profile cricketer has been cast in Network Ten’s new series I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, but who else is on the hit list?
Ten has pledged to keep the names of the 10 celebrities who will be dropped in the South African jungle under wraps until the season launches in February.
Among the cast will be at least two international stars but keeping all names a secret will be harder than living in the jungle. Agents and managers have a habit of spilling the beans to gain their client as much publicity as possible.
It’s likely the entire cast of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here will be known before the show airs.
The hunt to track down willing A-grade participants started a couple of months ago and there’s no shortage of B and C grade identities putting their hands up.
Already The Bachelor’s Laurina Fleure has been linked to the show.
Whether Fleure is cast or not, you can rest assured that there will be at least one, if not more, reality show contestants monkeying around on set.
Given Ten is still searching for “celebrities” here’s a few that may be worth calling.
Vince Colosimo: The actor is struggling for coin. He’s been working as a labourer on building sites to make ends meet. He also needed four months to pay a $1000 fine. Definitely needs the cash and the ladies would probably like to see Vince in budgie smugglers.
Sophie Monk: Sophie has quit her radio job and is always at the ready to perform outrageous stunts for cheap publicity. She also has international appeal, having once been engaged to Benji Madden, should Ten try to onsell the series.
Ian “Dicko” Dickson: A reality show junkie. His list of reality appearances includes Australian Idol (judge), Celebrity Survivor (host), My Restaurant Rules (host), Celebrity Apprentice (contestant) and Dancing With The Stars (contestant).
Daryl Somers: For his own sake, and to at least delay the resurrection of Hey Hey It’s Saturday online, Somers and Ossie Ostrich should be signed.
Mark Bouris: The founder of Wizard Home Loans was the Donald Trump of Australia’s
If he gets scared of being in the real jungle, he could buy his way out.
Ben Zabel: The 2013 Big Brother contestant has wide appeal. He was dumped by the Nine Network and now he’s started appearing on Ten’s morning show Studio 10. He’s out of work so he’s another celeb who could do with the cash and a holiday.
Kelly Ramsay: It would be interesting to see the My Kitchen Rules villain create delicacies out of whatever they capture in the African jungle. Knows how to wind people up and given she’s very upfront with her thoughts, she could have a lot to say if anyone criticises her cooking.
Mark Holden: In the rare instance that he comes across any cannibals, we’ll find out if clowns really do taste funny.
Sophie Monk would make a perfect candidate for a stint in an African rainforest.
