As the final three celebrities waited to hear the results, the finale of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here proceeded…with a ton of clips.
Out of thirteen who came to Costa Rica, only John Salley, Lou Diamond Phillips and Torrie Wilson remain. This outcome was determined at Tuesday’s elimination, which saw the end of Sanjaya Malakar and Patti Blagojevich in the competition. At intervals during the finale, live cameras showed this group of three sitting around the fire, silently waiting for whatever would come next.
For this season ender, the competitors of the season - minus Frangela - returned or remained in Costa Rica to gather for the cameras. “I been callin’ every day, trying to get back in,” Spencer Pratt told the hosts.
Thirteen celebrities were deposited in Costa Rica. By the end of Tuesday’s episode of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here, only three would go on to compete to win the show - and a slew of money for their charities. With five remaining and two slated for departure, emotions were running high among the campers.
“It’s been a great time,” Lou Diamond Phillips told the camera, though spirits were low with the end in sight - and elimination still looming in the future.
Celebs shared favorite moments around the campfire as clips played for our amusement, reminding us of the funny, tense and surprising events that have happened during this season. Some have made friends, some have made enemies, some have learned just how far they can push themselves, and others learned they can’t push themselves at all. But only one of them will win.
With two less divas in the jungle, Costa Rica is a little quieter on I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here. More would go missing before the end of the Monday episode - but that wasn’t the only surprise NBC was waiting to spring on viewers.
Janice Dickinson and Holly Montag were taken out of the contest at the end of last week’s episodes, which eliminated at least one problematic contestant. The celebs were sorry to see Holly go, though in a way it’s only fair as she joined the competition at least one week after everyone else arrived. Sanjaya Malakar, who’d developed a close friendship with the Montag sis, was especially sad when she left. Malakar, close to Dickinson as well, was drained by the experience.
“Janice Dickinson has been like a thorn in my paw,” John Salley admitted in the confessional. For most, there was something of a joyous atmosphere in the air after Dickinson trekked down the elimination bridge.

At the beginning of Thursday’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here, the celebs were all abuzz with the partially-revealed elimination results. Janice Dickinson is not in the top two; Patti Blagojevich is not in the bottom two. Or so it stood Wednesday night. At the end of the episode, two would leave the competition.
The hosts returned the next morning to reveal another twist: the teams have been merged into one group. This means challenges will be conducted individually. Janice Dickinson was in a very bad mood after it was discovered that she was not in the top two. Holly Montag confronted Dickinson about her grumpy attitude and the two were easily able to bury the hatchet, though Janice poked fun at Holly’s reaction during her confession a little later.
The first individual food trial was Mud Pit Mania. Each celeb was asked to dress in wrestling clothes for the event, and all seemed to have fun getting themselves ready. The food prize for this challenge was pizza - quite the treat for several half-starved celebs.
John Sally’s decision to give himself immunity was the first big topic of discussion on Wednesday’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here. The phone lines and Web site are now open to accept votes. Just like on American Idol, viewers are asked to support the celebs they want to keep on the show - not the ones they’d like to eliminate.
Janice Dickinson suffered a bad dream the next morning, and shared a conversation about Jesus with Stephen Baldwin as a result. “I don’t want to be who I am,” she sobbed at one point.
“God can change all that, dude. For real,” he told her.
The celebs were given charcoal and paper with which to do sketches of themselves in the jungle. Janice drew herself lying down and staring at the camera, while John saw himself in the river. Stephen drew a stick figure of himself with the Bible. Sanjaya also drew the river, which he finds very"serene.” Holly, too, drew Sanjaya in the river, both of them with their arms up in the air. Patti drew herself sitting in the river with John Salley. After spending so much time in the jungle, the celebs are starting to feel like a family - albeit, dysfunctional.
The game is starting to heat up on I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here, and Tuesday’s episode marked the opening of the phone lines. Two celebs will be voted off the show on Thursday, making viewer opinion more important than ever.
The episode began with John Salley‘s reign as leader. He began doling out the chores for the week and told the celebs it was time for them to clean up their areas within the camp. “If you see stuff, just clean it up,” he instructed.
“There’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is John,” Holly Montag said during her confessional.
It is now the third week of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here, and rain in the jungle is affecting production. But NBC isn’t about to let a little thing like rain affect the show. The hosts have been moved but the cameras keep on rolling.
“I’m shocked,” Stephen Baldwin said of his brother, Daniel, and his surprising elimination from the show. “I’m going to miss him,” the younger bro admitted.
“I couldn’t be happy that Daniel Baldwin is gone, because he was a big bully!” Janice Dickinson cried to the camera.
“It was really tacky and rude,” Torrie Wilson observed of Dickinson’s behavior when the elimination announcement was made.
John Salley started to have a rough time in the camp after the departure of Daniel. Finally, he and Janice were able to make up and put some of their conflicts away.
It was only last week that Heidi Pratt, with husband Spencer at her side, was rushed from the filming of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here to a medical facility to be treated for dehydration. Now, Vote For the Worst is reporting that Janice Dickinson has been sent for treatment as well.
An unnamed source reported to Zap2it that Dickinson was taken from the set in an ambulance and is suffering from an unknown illness.
Cameras have been sticking with the model throughout, so audiences will soon know the story behind these rumors. I’m thinking maybe it was the stolen granola bar that made Dickinson sick.

TMZ captured video of Heidi and Spencer Pratt arriving in LA after their stint in Costa Rica. The couple were part of the cast of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, a show they left several times before they finally chose to leave for good.
Now that they’re back to their lavish lifestyles, Speidi is singing a different tune. They no longer seem angry at NBC and they are denying that they ever cried “torture” against the network in the first place. “I love NBC. I was never suing NBC,” Spencer told that paps as he made his way through the airport. “I guess since you sign a waiver…it’s not called torture.” Or some smart lawyer patiently explained to the newlyweds that they absolutely don’t have a case against the show.
The pair further soaked up the spotlight by appearing on Today, where they were questioned by Al Roker. He valiantly tried to get real answers out of the couple before finally putting an end to the entire Q and A (view the video above).
