Spencer Pratt: 'I Already Set My TiVo' For 'The Hills'

'I am so ecstatic,' he says of the new episodes featuring Kristin Cavallari, set to begin on September 29.

Spencer Pratt cannot wait until September 29 for the debut of new episodes of [url id="http://www.mtv.com/ontv/dyn/the_hills/series.jhtml"]"The Hills"[/url] — turns out he is eagerly anticipating the return of Kristin Cavallari to the world of reality TV. She's what he describes as "one of the most entertaining people to be put behind a camera lens."

"I am so ecstatic. Everyone knows she just outshines," he said recently of Cavallari. "I'm more of a team player than people. Everybody else likes to be self-center players. I like when there's a team — it makes me want to watch it. I already set my TiVo."

And what's with the cowboy hat Pratt is sporting recently? It seems wife Heidi's dad Cowboy Bill is to blame. "Well, it was because my new father-in-law gave it to me, and he gave it to me with such a serious speech connected to it [about] how much it truly meant to him and his life and everything," Pratt explained. "He even kind of hinted at how cool it would be to see it on the show for all his cowboy friends back in Colorado."

Pratt even got serious for a moment, saying, "For me it wasn't really more a fashion statement — it was more something for my father-in-law."

Spencer was careful when it came to commenting on Heidi's baby fever though. "It's just mind-boggling to me. I don't even like to give it air," he explained. "Everything I say I talk into reality, so I'm not trying to talk this into reality."

Tune in to MTV on Tuesday, September 29, at 10 p.m. ET for the "Hills" premiere!
