Since it premiered last week, NBC's I'm a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! has been generating headline after headline — mostly of the Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt variety. The latest controversy is that Heidi and Spencer claim they were tortured in an isolation chamber as punishment for trying to leave the show, leading to Heidi being hospitalized with an ulcer — a story sources on the show are denying. Even before that, the pair had already quit and unquit the show, which features contestants performing various challenges (many involving rats and spiders) in the Costa Rican jungle.
Not only has the show been making entertainment headlines, it's also been dominating NBC's schedule — and this week looks to be no different, with the show set to air two-hour installments tonight and Wednesday and another episode on Thursday. Have you gotten caught up in the controversy? Or are you avoiding the show and anything to do with it?
