I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here Australia starts on Sunday, January 3 on Ten.
JMo and Dr Chris will be back but there is no African adventure this year. Covid forced Ten to film closer to home where, as you know, we have way more dangerous animals. They are just a tad smaller than the African ones.
Who will be King or Queen of the Jungle on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here: Miguel, Rhonda or Other Daisy?
I’ve been barracking for Miguel since his casting was announced last year, but Daisy’s footy past means he came with a horde of already diehard fans.
Given The Living Room was cancelled, I hope, whatever the outcome, we see Miguel on our screens again soon.
Thanks to Daisy for the jungle scoop as Celeb nears an end …
“Week 3 in the jungle is it, Docteur?” They have been racing through the evictees this year. I’m not a happy Jan (where does that expression originate?) because I want to get to know what the campers are really like. We finally get Charlotte to shut up a bit, but too late: Billy Brownless, Erin and Tom, all ones I liked for various reasons, are gone, while Baboon Bum lips Charlotte and Snoozefest Ryan remain. Ryan made Tom look like he had a big personality and keen social skills. I wouldn’t be so harsh to Charlotte if those lips were a birth defect instead of a choice. And if she didn’t talk about herself all of the time.
So, a summary of evictees, but only through my eyes. Dilruk, he was all right but was drowned out by Charlotte. Nikki, nice but drowned out by Charlotte. Billy, interesting but drowned out by Charlotte. Erin, a sneaky dry sense of humour and sweet personality that was drowned out by Charlotte. Tom, goofy and odd, but would probably have gone by now anyway.
Remaining we have Daisy Dave who has made a few hilarious comments. Myf who has depth and listens to others.
Ronda who is doing a good job of storytelling and pulling funny faces. Coz the magician, who is a humble sweetheart. Slowburn Tanya who when she gets a word in edgeways, isn’t too bad.
Cheerful, kind Miguel who might win. Perez who wants to prove to the world that he is nice…myeh. Ryan, who probably won’t win because he has taken on second fiddle to Charlotte. And Charlotte who is annoying lots of people in abd out of the camp but who might still be in the last 3 if she can get the votes from young ladettes.
This year, there is no bitchiness between campers. They have shown great tolerance of Charlotte, and are getting along really well. On The Project, Nikki said that Charlotte gave her the shits, yet she didn’t express that in camp. Erin was straight about finding her a pain, but Tom and Billy described her in a positive way.
It seems that the show will wind up fairly soon, which will be a bit disappointing. I still want to see if there are some interesting personalities there. I predict Perez will be gone next. My favourite now is Cos. How about you?
Who’s your fave so far? And who will get the fewest votes?
Daisy has whipped us up a recap faster than you can say impala anus – thank you, Daisy – Juz
Hi everyone. This is just a quick IAC recap for the week. So far, it’s been the Charlotte Show with a contrived, not very convincing romance between Charlotte and Ryan. If you buy that, you’d probably buy the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Julia as usual is trying desperately for a laugh, and her bad jokes are rubbing off on Chris, literally.
Tom has been hilariously a non-event, as has the young footy guy, who as yet has no name. These, and others who have not had much air-time, might be funny, interesting or entertaining when we actually get to see them. Unfortunately, we have the cycle of the same few celebs getting voted for trials, while those who are passed by cry “Yippee”, or send up a prayer of thanks, while the penny begins to drop that they aren’t viewers’ favourites.
Tanya is giving it her best shot, while Erin’s a natural. You’d have every reason to think that she is nothing but shallow, when in fact she is bright and quick-witted.
Myf seems just nice and I reckon Ronda’s fun.
Ryan seems to be trying to extend his CV. He’s a newbie, hoping for more TV work.
Old footy guy has settled in, and is making friends in camp.
The “comedians” are still saving their best material for later, it seems. Nothing from them yet.
At this stage, my top 3 are probably Erin, Ronda and Myf but it’s early days. I don’t know much about their prexisting fan bases, but from just watching the show this week, I predict that, because it’s a vote to save, Charlotte will last a long while, and Erin and Ronda will do well.
As for their luxury items; ridiculous. I suppose the best ones were the floatie and the large pan. What would you bring? I would take my own bed. Cheers.
Celeb starts tonight. The move to the early air date should pay off. People are ready for some light-hearted entertainment after weeks of anxiously watching the bushfires.
We already know some Geordie Shore lass is the “megastar” (underwhelming) but today chip pie-turned-TV presenter Tom Williams was announced as a contestant, as was Myf Warhurst, who was one of my picks. More here.
It starts at 7.30 on Ten and goes for two hours.
The first I’m a Celeb 2020 contestant has been announced. It’s the always enthusiastic yet sometimes unintelligible chef Miguel Maestre from The Living Room.
He’s very likeable – could well be a winner.
It’s two months before the show starts so we can look forward to thousands of promos for the show. Who else do you think they will cast?
I bet they will be after Ciarron from Bachelorette as audiences responded so well to him.
I’m a Celeb starts Jan 5, 2020.
You can watch the promo below. It’s quite funny and I laughed when I saw they’d subtitled Miguel. He and Dr Chris are mates so it should make for some good banter.
Chris and Julia have been taken hostage. The whole fate of I'm A Celebrity lies in the hands of mysterious Mr X. Hey, he looks familiar….I'm A Celebrity, starts January 5 #ImACelebrityAUpic.twitter.com/chI8Sp2KC7
