reality blurred has also heard unconfirmed rumors that comedian Carrot Top, actor Dabney Coleman, and a member of the Blue Man Group are also members of the new cast, with emphasis on the “unconfirmed rumors” part.

An all-star season titled The Surreal Life: Fame Games, was already filmed in March, so this report apparently refers to The Surreal Life 8, which has not yet been officially announced.
