Surreal Life 3 starts taping with Jordan Knight, Flavor Flav, Dave Coulier, Charo.
VH1’s The Surreal Life 3 began production yesterday. The cast includes Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block, Flavor Flav of Public Enemy, Dave Coulier of Full House, Brigitte Nielsen of Beverly Hills Cop 2, and Charo of cuchi cuchi fame. They’ve also scraped the bottom of the reality barrel once again; this time, American Idol‘s Ryan Starr fills the Trishelle/Jeri Manthey slot. Reports that the network shift (from The WB) also brought with it a shift to an all-musician cast were apparently somewhat of a stretch, although the network’s press release says Charo is “a master of the flamenco guitar,” while Coulier “was Alanis Morissette’s inspiration for” the song “You Oughta Know.” The show debuts Sept. 5.
