LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- After only two days of filming “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here,” in the Costa Rican jungle, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are crying “Get Me Out Of Here” for real.
According to a production source close to NBC’s new reality series, the “Hills” couple has already tried to quit the show twice.
“They walked out of the jungle yesterday and took their mics off and quit,” the source told Access Hollywood. “[They] then decided to go back into the jungle last night and they made it through the night.”
However, it appears the couple’s comfort in the jungle soon faded, just hours later.
“This morning, during the second day of shooting, they yet again walked back over the bridge to exit the jungle and head home,” the source continued.
But when the series premieres on Monday night — starring Spencer, Heidi, as well as Janice Dickinson, former NBA star John Salley, former “American Idol” alum Sanjaya Malakar, actor Stephen Baldwin and more — NBC will have everyone on board and on camera at least, for now.
“They have since returned to the jungle and are committed to competing for their respective charities,” the source said. “We’re only on the second day of shooting, so we hope this time they will really stay.”
