Surreal Life 8 reportedly includes Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Phil Hellmuth, Peter Steele, Tina Jordan

A report yesterday suggested that wrestler Randy “Macho Man” Savage, poker player Phil Hellmuth, Type O Negative’s Peter Steele, and Playmate Tina Jordan are members of the cast for the next season of The Surreal Life, according to an interview with Hellmuth on Sirius radio reported by PWTorch.com.

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.
