After very dramatically exiting the Costa Rican jungle on Tuesday night’s episode of “I’m a Celebrity” and promising that they’d quit for real, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are still on the show, according to their rep.
“Heidi and Spencer are still in the jungle and part of the show,” their rep told MTV News on Wednesday (June 3).
Although rumors had been out there that the couple would be arriving in Los Angeles late Tuesday night, MTV News has confirmed, there were decoys under blankets on the plane, sent to throw people off the fact that Heidi and Spencer were still in the jungle and plotting their big return. Those decoys were Spencer’s sister, Stephanie Pratt, and a friend named Spenser.
When the duo known as Speidi made their big exit on Tuesday, their fellow contestants were taking bets on whether they were really leaving. The pair had threatened to leave the show several times before — since Spencer told the group “he’s too rich and too famous” to stay in the jungle — without actually following through.
At the time of their departure, they added that they’re “the most famous people in the world” and would rather head back to “The Hills” than stay in the woods. But Spencer quickly hit up his Twitter account and wrote that he hoped the show’s producers would take Speidi back on the show.
“The devil fooled Speidi into making an awful decision and we are praying to Jesus to get NBC to give us another shot to redeem. We’re praying to Jesus that NBC forgives us for being quitters!” he wrote. “Quitters never win and a winner never quits!”
