Surreal Life 2 may be extended past six episodes; many celebs wanted in.
Six celebrities are currently in the Hollywood Hills taping day four of eleven of The Surreal Life 2, which will air for six episodes on The WB sometime midseason. But E! Online reports “that number [of episodes] may grow, depending on how well the B-listers perform for the network.” This year, the seven-member cast has been reduced to six to allow a seventh “celeb” to join the cast every episode. Celebrities were apparently begging to be cast, which may explain the revolving celeb spot. The six permanent cast members are Traci Bingham, Trishelle Canatella, Erik Estrada, Vanilla Ice, Ron Jeremy, and Tammy Faye Messner.
