The Surreal Life on the WB takes 7 famous, well, C-List celebrities, at best, people and puts them in a house for 10 days or so. It's kinda like a Real World, but with people who were super-big. The "stars" include M. C. Hammer, Emmanuel "Webster" Lewis, 2001 Playmate of the Year and Baywatch Alum, Brande Roderick, ex-Motley Crue frontman, Vince Neil, Corey Feldman, Gabrielle Carteris of 90210 fame, and Jerry, a.k.a. that bitch from the second Survivor. Seriously, who's bigger? Corey Feldman or Vince Neil? Who is the biggest name on that list?

Actually, I got a good kick out of this show. Not having cable and never seeing Anna Nicole or The Osbornes, this is a very interesting take on has-been celebrity life. The tensions are already pretty high. Hammer had problems with the sushi dinner, not just because it was raw fish, but because it was served on a naked lady's body. Noteably, Vince was sitting at the foot of the table as it were...Great view, I'd imagine... Surprisingly, Corey Feldman didn't partake in the meal because he's a vegetarian and his girlfriend wasn't there. After all his rehab and his problems, I have to give him props for that... Though, it really wasn't a surprise that Corey seemed to already know everyone else, except Jerry, as if at various times in his life he would hang with them...

Emmanuel Lewis still has an infectous laugh. Everytime he laughed, we couldn't help but being jovial ourselves.

I don't read Wil Wheaton's blog, but I'm interested in knowing if he was asked to be on this show. He probably turned it down when he found out there was no interent access. Afterall, no 'net access means no blogging... hmmm... would that really be that bad?? Oh, I hope they ask him to be on the next season...

The Surreal Life airs Thursdays at 9pm/8 central on the WB.
