At the beginning of Tuesday night’s “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!,” host Damien Fahey announced that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt would be sitting out the episode, after media reports surfaced that the pair known as Speidi had quit the show (although rumors emerged just hours later that they were trying to get back on the show).
Speidi can be seen on the show, during taped segments in which contestants hang out in a basin of water and bugs known as the “trauma tank,” but the pair decided not to participate in the challenge that was eventually won by the guys’ team, thanks to former “American Idol” contestant Sanjaya Malakar .
The pair were later seen talking with fellow contestant Stephen Baldwin, sharing religious views. (Spencer told him that Heidi said God will answer his prayers — as evidenced by the time that he prayed to hang out with Miley Cyrus and it actually happened!)
The duo had to compete against each other to win food for their team. Their challenge? To find as many star cut-outs as possible in the snake- and rat-filled chamber. “I’m about to go on a competition against my wife, and I’m going to beat her, even though she is my wife,” Spencer said. Heidi, knowing her husband so well, added that he’d throw her off a cliff to win.
Pratt managed to wrangle up two stars while Heidi only got one, making him the winner of a meal for his team. “I, of course, won because what I do, I win at,” he said. “Not even Spencer Pratt knows what he’s going to do — where I think I might quit, I might end up staying and winning the whole thing.”
Calling the trial his “goodbye trial,” he announced to the group that “he’s too rich and too famous” to stay in the jungle, before getting into an argument with Janice Dickinson about religion and getting baptized by Stephen Baldwin in the nearby river. “I feel like I just took a 10-year bath,” he said afterward.
When Speidi announced their departure, Sanjaya asserted that he wasn’t sure what that meant for their future, since he thought they could come back at any time. However, they did in fact leave, saying they’re “the most famous people in the world” and would rather head back to “The Hills” than stay in the woods.
The remaining team members placed bets that the couple would come back for more, though the live shot showed an empty Camp Speidi. Voting was then opened to the public to decide who would be the next to leave the Costa Rican jungle.
