Channel 10 is on the hunt for celebrities to appear in their planned production of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, only to discover that all of their celebrities have already gotten out of there.
The broadcaster had a troubled 2014 which saw it slip to a distant third in the ratings war, with even ABC looming in the rear-view mirror.
But a plan to revitalise with another rehash of a celebrity based reality TV show hit a snag when the network discovered that it didn’t actually have any celebrities left.
Media analyst Irene Smackaway told The (un)Australian, “It’s a catch twenty-two for Channel 10, they could use any one of their contractually obligated talking heads to appear in the show, but technically speaking no-one is watching channel 10 yet so they can’t actually be classified as celebrities.”
Channel 10 has had to widen its search to fill out the roster for the show, and a few rumours have been circulating about some turning down the opportunity including Sophie Monk.
When asked about turning down the offer Sophie told The (un)Australian, “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here doesn’t sound like much fun, I’m holding out for Celebrity Game of Thrones, that’s a great reality TV show,” before adding, “Where are my Dragons! See I can totally do it, can’t wait to see some dragons.”
The (un) Australian approached the Chief Executive Officer of Ten for comment but he was fired before he could return the call, and his replacement has been fired since we found out the previous CEO was fired. We reached out to the replacement for the replacement CEO, but got diverted to Lachlan Murdoch whose voicemail simply stated, “turn the network around or your fired.”
