I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! information

I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!The remake of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! debuted this week on NBC. The concept began as a UK show and has continued to run there successfully. Season nine is scheduled to begin airing there in November.

ABC tried doing a US version a few years back but cancelled it after one season because of low ratings. Now, NBC execs have decided to try their luck and plan to air the program for 15 nights over the course of four weeks.

The reality show throws a group of so-called celebrities together in the middle of a jungle. Living in the wilderness, they compete in various challenges and tasks and struggle to stay in the game. In the end, it’s the viewers at home who will decide who stays and who goes. The last remaining star will be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle and will win the largest share of the prize money for their charity of choice.

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!: NBC Reviving Reality Competition

March 18, 2009
In the networks' fervor to find new reality shows to put on the air, concepts are frequently "borrowed" from the UK airwaves. Imports like American Idol and Dancing With The Stars have become very popular here in the states and NBC execs are hoping that they'll get lucky. In I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!, a group of celebrities live in a distant jungle together with few comforts of home. They compete in various challenges with the ultimate winner earning a big cash prize for their charity of choice. In February 2003, ABC tried airing a version with D-list celebrities like Melissa Rivers, Alana Stewart, Nikki Schieler Ziering, Robin Leach, Bruce Jenner, Downtown Julie Brown, Maria Conchita Alonso, Tyson Beckford, and "Stuttering" John Melendez. John Lehr hosted the episodes and Judd won the grand prize to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. ABC ran the series every night for 15 installments. Unlike Survivor, Celebrity was shot concurrent with its air dates. This allowed the viewing audience to vote contestants out each night, as well as decide who should take part in challenges. Ultimately, ABC wasn't satisfied with the episodes' ratings and execs decided to pull the plug after only one season.
