VH1’s Surreal Life 3 debuts on Sunday.

VH1’s Surreal Life 3 debuts on Sunday.
The Surreal Life 3 kicks off at 10 p.m. ET on Sunday evening, as it moves to its new VH1 home. “Celebrities” Charo, Dave Coulier, Flavor Flav, Jordan Knight, Brigitte Nielsen, and Ryan Starr will move in together in a house owned by Glen Campbell. The first episode is titled “Six Degrees of Irritation,” and in it, “[r]oom politics get under way and Charo takes charge while Jordan bums out at the lack of privacy.” Jordan also apparently bums out once he realizes that he’s on a reality TV show, calling his manager and saying, “You know I don’t like this. I feel like a prostitute,” Variety reports. The paper’s review says the cast “begins the show as older, fatter, balder, puffier versions of their former, more famous selves.”
