Surreal Life 4, Strange Love debut Sun.
VH1 kicks off The Surreal Life 4 Sunday with a new group of washed-up celebs: Da Brat, America’s Next Top Model Adrianne Curry, Chyna Doll, Marcus Schenkenberg, Jane Wiedlin, Christopher Knight, and Verne Troyer. Verne will christen the house when he “rides a scooter, nude, into a room” and then pees in a corner, according to the New York Daily News. Critics might be the only people who see that scene, VH1 exec Jeff Olde said. “We’re still sort of playing with how that looks on television. That may come out.” Um, dude, it’s going to look awesome.

After the 9 p.m. ET debut of The Surreal Life 4, two of the cast members from The Surreal Life 3 use their popularity on the show to launch a new series at 10 p.m. Strange Love stars Brigitte Nielsen and Flavor Flav, who will hang out and travel together “to see if their love is the real deal.”
