Launched with a cast that included American Idol's Sanjaya Malakar and political wife Patti Blagojevich—dust bunnies under fame's bed—Celebrity enjoyed a burst of buzz thanks to the obligingly loathsome Spencer and Heidi Pratt. Rather than suffer the indignities of competing Survivor-like in the jungles of Costa Rica, they threw an epic hissy fit, bolted—then came back. This isn't a good show or a fresh one—ABC aired a version in 2003—but I enjoy watching D-listers in the heat and dirt. It's like a reality Apocalypse Now.
