When TVA announced the start of a local version of British reality TV I’m a celebrity … Get me out of here!Quebec – okay, I’m exaggerating a bit – lets out a muffled cry: but who will agree to show their worst side in front of the intrusive cameras, their faces smeared with mud and insect bites?

Because there is absolutely nothing glamorous Get me out of here!, the French name of this phenomenal show that TVA will air in January. Mix of Fort Boyard and of Survivedthe production parachutes ten stars into the middle of the jungle and forces them to survive on the bare minimum, without makeup artists, hairdressers or restaurateurs.

To earn comfort privileges, participants of Get me out of here! eat ants, baobab roots or beetles and sleep in a more than rudimentary camp, teeming with insects. They also undergo grueling physical challenges.

Anyway, it looks like (fire) Extreme expedition of channel Z, where Martin Perizzolo had freaked out in 2016. TVA confirmed on Monday the participation of three competitors from Get me out of here!singer Nathalie Simard, the Dr François Marquis of docureality On call 24/7 of Télé-Québec and the Olympic athlete Marianne St-Gelais.

Nathalie Simard is one of the three participants in the show Get me out of here! of VAT.

And who are the other brave ones? According to my spies, who didn’t take a break this summer, comedian Jean-François Mercier, singer-songwriter Andréanne A. Malette, weather presenter Colette Provencher and actress Livia Martin (daughter of comedian Maxim Martin) would have done part of this exotic TV-trip. None of these candidates, however, responded to my interview requests on the matter Get me out of here!.

With the dr Marquis in the group, head of intensive care at Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital, we know that heatstroke, food poisoning and dehydration had to be well treated. And Colette Provencher probably had to see hurricanes arrive two days early, she who has been reading the future of weather maps for more than 40 years on TVA.

The shootings of Get me out of here! were completed in July, in Costa Rica. The animation of this reality show was entrusted to Alexandre Barrette and Jean-Philippe Dion, who will break away from the cozy boho-chic comfort of true nature.

The headliners of Get me out of here!, who call themselves campers, are entitled to rations of rice and black beans and spend their nights under the stars in a tropical forest. The person who endures this equatorial nature immersion experience the longest wins a prize pool of $ 100,000, which they donate to a charity of their choice.

In England, the ITV channel presents the 22And season of I’m a celebrity … Get me out of here! with resounding success with the public. On the US side, the adaptation was a total flop. The first version, released in 2003, reunited actress Melissa Rivers, aspiring politician Caitlyn Jenner and model Tyson Beckford. The second incarnation, conceived in 2009, reunited supermodel Janice Dickinson, actor Lou Diamond Phillips (The Bamba) and two of the Baldwin brothers, Stephen and Daniel. All the stars of the C series, we get along well.

Yes, there will be stars on our winter reality shows. Noovo reports Celebrity of Big Brother for a third chapter in January, again with Marie-Mai in charge.

University crush!

Great love for comedy The sex life of college girls from HBO, viewable, unfortunately only in English, on the Crave platform. The French version doesn’t exist with us, it’s sad.

The sex life of college girls is now on the Crave platform.

I know it, Sex lives About a year, but hey. A good television does not have an expiration date. The second season would be released in late 2022 or early 2023 and I can’t wait. It’s fun, heartwarming, and full of vitaminized dialogue.

The title of this TV series created by the brilliant Mindy Kaling (my first times) sums up its content well, which oscillates between the comic and the very honest. He follows four roommates who begin their freshman year at the prestigious (fictional) university of Essex, Vermont. The four “adolescents”, who come from different socio-economic backgrounds, have nothing in common at the beginning.

There is self-assured Leighton, the rich guy who grew up in New York who looks like a mean blonde gossip Girl. There’s shy Kimberly, whose family in Arizona isn’t gaining ground. There’s Bela, an aspiring comedian whose Indian parents think she’s studying science. And there is athletics Whitney, soccer champion and daughter of a well-known senator.

Between their classes and their social activities, the four roommates obviously have sex. Lots of sex. They get caught up in complicated and borderline toxic relationships. They question their future and their sexual orientation. They resolve conflicts and end up creating strong bonds between them.

Bonus: The sex life of college girls it starts with the start of the school year in Essex, which is exactly what is happening in the universities here. But don’t let the autumn spirit drown you in pumpkin spiced latte and wrap you up in a chunky wool sweater. Resist. It’s still summer!
