When all the ads feature Melissa Rivers (and Robin Leach), you have to know they're scraping the bottom of the barrell.

I thought that was part of the joke of this show.

i'm pretty sure she's one of rod stewart's 8,000 ex-wives. oh and she used to be a model, so clearly she's one of the bigger celebrities on the show.

Does anyone else get the feeling that they are on a soundstage sometimes? It sure feels like it.


By the way, this show is hilariously bad. Melissa Rivers cried because she just now realized that they got them all on the show to humiliate them! Stupid bitch...

When I heard the name Downtown Julie Brown, I knew it was slim pickings

I saw the print ad, and that was ENOUGH for me. Looks vile.

Wubba-wubba my a**...............

Isn't one of the "celebs" Jennifer Lopez's ex-husband. Is that his only claim to fame?

No, he is right. Her name is Alana Stewart and shi is Rod Stewart's ex-wife as well as George Hamilton's ex-wife. She had a short lived talk show with Hamilton back in the mid 90's called George and Alana. And she used to be a model.

She is Nikki Schieler Ziering, Ian Ziering's (Beverly Hills 90210) ex-wife. I could not believe that she brought make up as her item. A lot of good that does the whole group.

I didn't watch the show, but when I saw the names of the pseudo-celebrities I realized what they had in common: Not one of them is even remotely likable in any way.

Honk!

I was watching ABC last night and they kept showing a commercial of Joan Rivers daughter saying, I am reallly Pissssed!
Poor baby. The only reason she has a career is because of her Mommy.
Didnt she have a million dollar wedding and then get divorced a year later?

Hhaha, these guys are the biggest bunch of crybabies. Especially Melissa Rivers. And on top of that, she's a horse.

According to TIVO, any money they win is going to charity. At least, that's worth something.

I'm going to catch this tonight. Seems like this is going to be a daily show.

I caught tonight's show. Really dull. Good premise but poor execution. Too much complaining from pampered so-called celebrities. I guess I'll tune in again to see if I change my mind.

I think the show is a guilty pleasure.

They really are getting rained on every day. Even I would have packed my bags after the second day and ran the HELL out of there.

I give these celebs credit for sticking it out.

What's the premise? No one gets voted off. If the celebrities stay on till the end, they win money for their charity?

I admit that I haven't watched after the other night.

It's got that Fear Factor thing going (putting the celebs through yucky tasks to get food for the group).
