LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Picking up where "Celebrity Boxing" left off, FOX has signed up 10 famous or once-famous folks for its "Celebrity Boot Camp" special.
The special, scheduled for 8 p.m. ET Sept. 30, will put the 10 "recruits" -- who range from former "Falcon Crest" and "Renegade" star Lorenzo Lamas to '80s pop star and recent Playboy model Tiffany -- through a series of challenges led by drill instructors from the network's 2001 reality series.
The other participants are Traci Bingham ("Baywatch"), rapper Coolio, David Faustino ("Married ... with Children" ), Kato Kaelin, former Milli Vanilli singer Fabrice Morvan, singer Vitamin C, Barry Williams ("The Brady Bunch") and Nikki Schieler Ziering ("The Price Is Right").
Drill instructors Dave Francisco, Juanita Moore and Tony Rosenbum will put the players through their paces. All 10 will take part in a first "mission," after which four people will be eliminated. Four more will be sent packing after a second mission.
The final two competitors will compete in a series of eight challenges called "the Gauntlet," with the winner taking home up to $100,000.
Williams and Coolio have previously taken part in similar specials. Coolio competed in a celebrity edition of "Fear Factor," while Williams fought Danny Bonaduce in the first edition of "Celebrity Boxing."

Wow. Are these guys so stripped for money that they're willing to get yelled at by drill sargeants for a measley hundred grand?
P.S.: I only say "measley" because I'm assuming celebs make a lot more than that in a month.
P.P.S: By the way, DJ FrostyFreeze, your sig RULES!
After lots of thinking I finally came to a theory: Any non-wrestler who gets attacked by the Island Boyz will immediately recieve praise from the Wienerville community. There's no other way to explain it.
This does sound bad, but it is FOX after all so it doesn't surprise me.
These commercials are superfine because they pay for the production costs of putting CHRIS MOTHERFUCKING BENOIT on my GODDAMN TV SCREEN! I will GO GREYHOUND! I am thinking OUTSIDE THE BUN! Ė Dean Rasmussen 8/1/2002 Smackdown Workrate Report

I agree. Boot Camp was one of the better reality shows. It at least had some credible competition. This, however, is just taking it too far. It's like the old Battle of the Network Stars on steriods. Oh, I mean "in 35 degree ice baths". Yeah, not steroids...
I cracked up when I read this. What would it be like if the Wrestlers - especially the old school guys like Magnificent Muraco - were drivers? I guess moves like Earnhardt's old blocking maneuver would have to have names.
