LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The stars of “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” have managed to survive Heidi and Spencer Pratt, but it appears that their next challenge will be fending off reptiles.
According to a production source on the jungle set of the NBC reality show, a deadly venomous white-tailed hog-nosed pit viper was found near the celebrity camp on Wednesday.
When spotted by security, a special wrangler was brought in to remove the lethal threat.
Nobody involved in the production was harmed by the snake.
On Monday, viewers of “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” saw another snake make its way into camp during the night. Patti Blagojevich and John Salley watched as men dressed in camouflage removed the slinky creature while their fellow celebrities slept.
