Ex-Playboy Cover Girl and WWE Diva survives Week 1 in the Jungle

torriewilsonFormer WWE Diva and Wrestling Queen Torrie Wilson has made the jump. Torrie has followed in the steps of ex-Diva Stacy Keibler and has jumped into the world of reality television competition. Torrie Wilson is currently stuck in a jungle on NBC’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.

The 2002 WWE Golden Thong Award winner is competing for charity with several other celebrities or should I say “celebrities.” Losers will be voted off by the public once a week. Torrie survived Week 1 after a tense moment of the chopping block.

As far as the show, I have to admit I like it. NBC airs the show four nights a week. Originally that was a bit of a turnoff. However, I sit here on Friday kind of disappointed that the show won’t be on tonight. Yes, count me in as another sucker for a bad reality show.

Speaking specifically of Torrie, she has been fun to watch. I think she has come across as a very likeable character. While her athleticism has never been in question, she has held her own against everyone on the show. I wondered going in how her back would impact her, and so far it hasn’t impacted her at all.

The show offers viewers the chance to call in and save someone from elimination. I was actually quite surprised that Torrie didn’t win out. Other than Sanjaya, I don’t think anyone on there has a more loyal following. I did read some posts online that claimed they tried to vote to save her but couldn’t due to a phone malfunction.

Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich’s wife Patti was saved. That just boggled my mind. She definitely comes across as a sympathetic figure on the show. She seems a lot more genuine than anyone else on the show. However, let’s face the fact she is only there because of her husband’s misgivings. I didn’t think she’d last the week but I was wrong.

As for the entire cast, it is a weird bunch to say the least. I definitely need to beef up on my pop culture because I don’t know who half of these people are. To me, the comedians from VH1 are just downright annoying. One half of the unfunny duo, Angela Shelton was sent home.

The kids from MTV’s The Hills are the ones stealing the show. Heidi and Spencer Pratt have quit and rejoined the show several times among other things. I must say that I have never even heard of these two kids before the show. In my opinion, they are playing a very strategic game and milking every minute of the show to cement their celebrity. I am sure VH1 is getting ready to milk this into a spinoff.

Lou Diamond Phillips has come off as one of the more sane members of the cast. Although it was a bit creepy when he opted for a foot massage from Sanjaya. Janice Dickenson has her moments, but she isn’t as crazy as you would think. Stephen Baldwin has surprisingly remained rather subdued for now. Ex-NBA star John Salley had a bit of a meltdown otherwise it has been the Spencer and Heidi show.

Wrestling fans can be proud of their ex-WWE Diva. Former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler previously made the jump into reality television competition. Keibler competed on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. Surprisingly, I don’t think it has done much for her career. For Torrie, I expect big things coming out of this including a win.
