I read an article not long ago in which Mark Burnett and Les Moonves said they’d looked into the idea of doing “Survivor” with an all-celebrity cast, but gave up on the idea after finding that Kato Kaelin was the most famous person they could get to do the show.
And, while I haven’t seen a single episode of “I’m a Celebrity,” I get the feeling Kato is a bigger “star” than any of the ones on that show!
Now, don’t get me wrong- I don’t expect JJulia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen or John Grisham to do shows like this! It stands to reason that real stars aren’t going to stoop to that level. But frankly, if the biggest “stars” you can get are people who were ONCE married to somebody sort-of famous (Alana Hamilton is no more a “celebrity” than Brett Somers), why even bother?
