Guessing game more fun than I’m a Celebrity cast?

Jimmy Barnes? No we got Nollsy.
Fran Drescher? Nope, not yet anyway.

TEN’s guessing game is now at risk of leading to an anti-climax after the cast was revealed on the opening night of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Bernard Tomic: World famous tennis player.
Fiona O’Loughlin: Queen of comedy.
Jackie Gillies: Television personality and psychic medium.
Josh Gibson: AFL champion.
Kerry Armstrong: Leading Australian actor.
Peter Rowsthorn: Iconic comedian and actor.
Shannon Noll: Australian rocker.
Simone Holtznagel: Model and reality television star
Tiffany Darwish: American singer and songwriter.

There were striking snakes, scorpions, crocodiles, sky diving and bungee jumps with Julia Morris & Chris Brown amping up the shenanigans.

Outspoken boxer Anthony Mundine will join the show tonight.


  1. I think it’s a brilliant cast. Bernard will be up for most tucker trials and putting a real housewife in will be sure to bring drama. Fiona already thinks she’s bonkers.

  2. I know three of those people and Fiona is the only one I find interesting. I’ll pass on this one and wait for Masterchef and Survivor where Ten really do ‘reality’ right.

  3. never watched the show… thought about watching it this year, once I saw who was on it I was out. watching paint dry would be more entertaining then watching has been or never weres

  4. Love this show. I can’t help but feel a bit sorry for Tomic and will be very interested to see what he is really like. Some of the comments the others made about him were funny though. Wondering how come two of the ladies were given gloves (I know Kerry was a joke) but poor Tomic gets bitten multiple times by a snake? He took it on the chin though which I thought was good.

    • Totally agree, I’ve actually heard of most of them for a change. Last year’s cast was full of reality no-bodies, so I didn’t make it past the first episode. I was pleasantly surprised with many of the cast last night. Having 2 well known comedians is a big plus too, love Fiona, she looks like she’ll be a lot of fun to watch.

      • Agree. Best cast thus far. The only person I didn’t know was the model. I can’t stand Mundine but he will get under the others skin quick smart. Fingers crossed the rumours are true and Danny Green is on his way too. He will take Mundine on and he’s one of the only people in the world who Mundine is intimidated by.

      • I agree, finally a cast where I actually knew all but one. Only the model was unknown to me. I had exposed myself to the awful Real Housewives over the past year or two, so Jackie was known to me, where in previous years she wouldn’t. Josh Gibson from Hawthorne, yummy eye candy, thank you. Bit of trivia on late 80s/early 90s pop star Tiffany. She was the voice of Judy Jetson in the theatrical release Jetsons:The Movie.

  5. Yep very lacklustre so far (intruders maybe), out of that really only Fiona O’Loughlin and Peter Rowsthorn hold any interest to me. Anthony Mundine could be okay, pity the Rocker isn’t Angry Anderson though as that combo could spice things up. Bernard Tomic could be interesting if he’s not there to just repair his public image, however overall not much in it really. I don’t mean I want viciousness or anything though, something akin to a learning curve like on Celebrity Go Back to Where You Came From would suffice.

  6. I am a little underwhelmed with this casting. No standouts , and two women I’d never even heard of before. (Simone and Tiffany).

    Who was the author??

  7. Yep waited till they were announced online then looked at them and said, Nup. Not watching ,Celebraties? Besides Kerry Armstrong, the rest are well. ..didn’t even know three of them.

    • So even Bernard Tomic, Shannon Noll and Peter Rowsthorn are not celebrities? Sheesh bit harsh. I didn’t know the model, the real housewife or Tiffany (although i have heard mum mention her in the past lol). Knew all the rest. Fiona will be hilarious i think.

  8. ” I am a nobody get me on here” Should be the new name of this show. Seriously Ten they are all nobody’s . Thinking now that CBS own Ten they would have a bigger budget to nab some real celebrities even a Hollywood C or D lister would have sufficed.
