NBC officially unveiled the cast of the summer series I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! (John Salley, Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag, Sanjaya Malakar, Torrie Wilson, Stephen Baldwin and Janice Dickinson) but the real star of the Friday press conference was former Governor Rod Blagojevich who was denied to be on the show by a judge.
Blagojevich was present on behalf of NBC to advertise the series, but it’s unclear if he’ll remain a part of the network’s campaign going forward:
“The judge’s decision is one I will follow and abide by,” Blagojevich said. “With respect to what the judge said, I appreciate the points he made.”
NBC and producer Granada America are still trying to figure out a way to keep the ex-Illinois governor on the show, however, but declined to speculate on some options.
I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! premieres on NBC on Monday, June 1 at 8:00pm
