Get Him In There!!!...
 
I know that Dirk has already done the reality TV thing in the UK with Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 4, but I can't help thinking he would have done so much better on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on ITV. Have a look at the website here: https://celebrity.itv.com

The latest show had some huge stars, including George Takei from Star Trek and world champion tennis player Martina Navratilova, so I think Dirk would fit in very well.

OK, there are some nasty trials he would have to do, but he has been a man of action in his career and he would get 3 weeks in Australia for free! It could make him a high profile star all over again and it think it would certainly give him what he was maybe hoping to get out of Celebrity Big Brother.

What do you guys think and do we think he would be up for it?

Dirk, contact your agent now and get on that show next year!

Well I'm not too sure if Dirk would want to be a "high profile" star "all over again" since he's been down that road, but in last weeks chat session we were talking about Dirk and reality TV shows, and the consensus was that if he ever did do another reality show, we'd all like to see him on "Dancing With the Stars" ( or "Strictly Come Dancing" in the UK I think it's called?? ).

Dirk has a third book to write ( hint hint ) so I'd like to see him get on that first ;)

Welcome to the boards :)

Hi Tracy!

Thanks for your reply.

I personally prefer "I'm A Celeb..." and I think it is generally more popular. Is Dirk a good dancer then?

Did you see Celeb Big Brother? He did alot of dancing on that show.
He's certainly got a sort of free spirited dance style, and I think he'd be really entertaining to watch on "Dancing.." ;)
Would be a challenge too, having to learn all the different styles.:)

I've heard of "I'm A Celeb..." but I have never seen it. What's the premise and what do they make them do?

Yes Tracy and since we all have sooooo much control over his endeavors we should get to pick which show he does next ;) LOL

Or at least you should Tracy. In the states Dancing with the Stars is one of the highest rated shows on television period. And the audience is made up of mostly women which plays right to his strengths. Someone should write to the house of mouse producers (disney) producers and let them know of our request. Tracy I nominate you to do that ( because we all know you have so much extra time on your hands) ;) LOL. I am extra cheeky today and think I probably need to go for my run all ready.

Cheers Hope Faith Love Running and Extra Bancha Tea this morning

Come to think of it. I do remember him doing some dancing on Big Brother...

Have a look at the website for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! (just click the link).

You can find out more on wikipedia. What do you think of it?

I need to go now, because I am at a Kings Of Leon concert in Glasgow's SECC tonight.

See you soon!

Definitely some Dancing ... show. :cool: As Shastastar said, therein lies his strength. And please, no jungle fever for our Dirk. He spent years in Hollywood, so he'll probably knows all there is to it. ;)

I'd vote for him to be on 'Survivor'. It seems less stressful than BB. The exotic locations and the scenery...and he'd outlast everyone else because he wouldn't be bothered by the diet of rice, roots and herbs; living off the land. A good rugged vacation is all it would be to him. ;)

Although initially I thought it would be great to see Dirk in "I'm a Celebrity..." when thinking about it, don't you think "Strictly Come Dancing"/"Dancing with the Stars" would be a better show to appear on:confused: I'm a Celebrity..." would be too much like CBB....but in the jungle rather than the "Big Brother" house!!!.....yes he would probably be great doing the tasks...not sure about the bush tucker trial!!!......:confused::confused::confused:

asmay 12-08-2008 02:20 AM

Re: Get Him In There!!!...
 
I have no doubt Dirk could hold his own against whoever or whatever in any of those shows. :cool: But to be completely honest, I donīt care much for this reality show genre (in a house, in the jungle, in the bush, on the dancefloor, on the Northpole, on the Moon for all I care).

I would much rather see him in a new film or tv show ....... :oops:;):p

Flash 12-08-2008 02:40 AM

Re: Get Him In There!!!...
 
I totally agree with you, asmay :) I'd choose a new, decent film with Dirk over any reality show. :cool:

pinar 12-08-2008 04:36 AM

Re: Get Him In There!!!...
 
Yes, I agree with asmay too.
I would rather to see new film, tv series or I would most rather see his third book!

ostarella 12-08-2008 07:37 AM

Yes - the book! The book! :D

Welcome BB68! Thank you for posting in the Glasgow collectormania thread.

Selfishly, I think Dirk would be great on one of the 'Dancing' shoes (edit - I meant 'shows' but perhaps it was a freudian slip!), but it is a lot of commitment, the 'stars' work out and rehearse several hours a day. Whilst Dirk has been a stay at home 'mom', that kind of commitment wouldn't have worked out? But soon, if Roland moves to Mexico, I don't know if Dirk is gonna go with him, or let him fly the coop, Dirk might suddenly find he has a lot more free time on his hands? ;)

My personal fav of the 'Dancing' 'reality tv' shows would be 'Dancing on Ice' - he can already ice skate, so I think it would be a breeze for him! :cool:

My personal general 'reality tv' fav would be Celebrity Chef, with Marco Pierre White, as like CBB & IAC, it's only for a few weeks, so v intense, but v quick! ;)

Re: Get Him In There!!!...
 
We'll be there to support Dirk in whatever he chooses to do - book, film, theatre, reality TV........won't we girls:confused:;):D

asmay 12-09-2008 02:00 AM

Re: Get Him In There!!!...
 
Absolutely! But we all have our preferences, of course (TV or filmwise I mean >:)). Although I also agree with Pinar: let him please go back to writing (books, articles, blogs, whatever ... I'm not particular). ;):D:p

Hi All,

If Dirk went on I'm a Celebrity and lived in the jungle, I think he'd probably fail on the bush tucker trials on purpose just so he could have rice and beans for dinner every night !! :)

My 9yr old would like Dirk and Dwight to go on another one of Ant and Decs shows here in the UK. "Ant and Decs Saturday Night Takeaway" My boy would love to see Dirk and Dwight challenge Ant and Dec at "Beat the Boys" a car driving contest. Ant and Dec verus The A-Team. That would be fun. Dirk and Dwight working together to win could be very entertaining as they are both very competitive.

I think Dirk would do well at the Dancing one to but Ive never watched that one.

:)

Take Care All.

It would nice to see Dirk on TV/films again, but, I agree with everyone about his third book. I can't wait to see that! :)

I like that idea too about Beat The Boys on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Take-away, using the famous A-Team van... or would they maybe need B.A. to drive that?...

Anyway, I still think he would do well in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and I hope he has read this forum thread and checked out the website for the show. I would be interested to know what he thinks about that idea. Does he come on this website, by any chance?... If so, does anybody know his username for this website?...

Nacky 12-13-2008 09:35 PM

Re: Get Him In There!!!...
 
He's a member here, yes, but...and this is just my thought, I don't think he has much time to read any threads here. Might be once in a great while. But again, I don't know. That's just what I think personally.

Re: Get Him In There!!!...
 
So 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here,' has begun in USA. This time the jungle is Costa Rica, not the NSW Bush.
Jungle mates this year include Stephen Baldwin (of Earthstorm infamy! - wasn't he already on Celebrity Apprentice recently? Looks like the acting work has dried up?).

We've just seen the first episode (I think from last week?) on UK tv - Stephen volunteered for Jungle John duty!

Bush tucker trials so far included a rat's tale (all furry and raw!), stick insects, and a tarantula - I think that one was cooked!

PMSL - all the ladies appear rather high maintenance - don't think they'll last long at all.

Thought I'd post this here seeing as many of us think Dirk would be an excellent player of this reality game!

Regards! :)

I saw some of the US version and didn't think it was quite as good as the UK version. Although that was probably due to not knowing who 2/3 of the people were. Janice Dickinson, cheating a bit as she was already a contestant on the UK show in 2007.

It's got to be one of the most inane concepts they've come up with yet.

I have little patience for "reality" television.

Shame Danny B was booted out - he is my fav B!
Funny how animated and extrovert Stevie B is - if only he could act, how much better Earthstorm would have been! LOL!

Umm... sorry hon... but not that much better, he's not that bad actually... I think that was more bad script, bad science, and a number of other bad things I parsed in the earthstorm drinking game... earthstorms "badness" had very little to do with Steve Baldwin IMHO.... and LOL
