The Surreal Life debuts tonight.
Seven celebrities try to live together in a house for 10 days as The WB debuts The Surreal Life tonight at 9 p.m. ET. They’re “without transportation, cell phones or personal assistants,” but they can leave the house to go grocery shopping. The seven celebrities are MC Hammer, Emmanuel Lewis, Brande Roderick, Corey Feldman, Gabrielle Carteris, Vince Neil, and Survivor Australia‘s Jerri Manthey. The Chicago Sun-Times Phil Rosenthal says the show is “inexplicable yet bizarrely compelling” and “far shrewder” than Celebrity Mole.
+ also: Jerri talks about the show and comments about the way The WB is promoting it.
