Surreal Life All-Stars Set to Return to Compete in VH1's First Ever 'The Surreal Life Fame Games' in Las Vegas

With Brigitte Nielsen, Ron Jeremy, Chyna Doll, Vanilla Ice, Traci Bingham, Jordan Knight, Pepa, Emanuel Lewis, Andrea Lowell and C.C. Deville Hosted by Robin Leach

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13 -- This time, what happens in Vegas won't stay in Vegas. It will be telecast on VH1's first ever "The Surreal Life Fame Games" and hosted by the certified bearer of champagne tastes and caviar dreams, Mr. Robin Leach himself (Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous).

VH1 is set to begin production on the fourth spin-off of the successful Surreal Life franchise. This time, ten of the most memorable cast members from all six seasons will come together in Las Vegas to compete in a series of "Fame Games" which will whittle them down to just one winner of a $100,000 grand prize.

"The Surreal Life Fame Games" will be a ten episode elimination featuring tongue-in-cheek competitions that parody the trappings, costs, conceits and drama of being famous. The Surreal celebrities will have their Hollywood survival skills challenged, their popularity measured and their ability to navigate the treacherous world of tabloid stardom put to the test.

The hour long show will be hosted by Las Vegas local Robin Leach and feature many Vegas locations, events and celebrity cameos. Surreal Life all-stars returning to compete include: Brigitte Nielsen (Season 3), Chyna Doll (Season 4), Vanilla Ice (Season 2), Pepa (Season 5), Emmanuel Lewis (Season 1), C.C. DeVille (yet to air Season 6), Ron Jeremy (Season 2), Jordan Knight (Season 3) and Tracy Bingham (Season 2).

"It'll be enormous fun to bring all of these larger than life Surreal Celebrities to live together in one place as they compete for the Grand Prize -- there's no way there won't be fireworks," said series Executive Producer and co-creator Mark Cronin. "Hollywood celebrities tend to take themselves too seriously -- we're going to have a great time lampooning the whole celebrity process," added Cris Abrego, the other half of the successful production team behind the Surreal Life, Strange Love, My Fair Brady and Flavor of Love.

Fame Game competitions will include everything from the "Red Carpet Fashion Showdown" to "Paparazzi Hide-and-Seek" to the "Hotel Room Trash-a-thon" to a funny little game called "What's Charo Saying?" While the premise of all the games will be fun, the competitions will be real -- and in the end, only one Surreal All-Star will claim the final prize.

The Surreal Life Fame Games is executive produced by Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego for Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures. Jeff Olde and Jill Holmes oversee the series for VH1.
