Fox Reality Channel Announces Final Reality Stars to Compete for Their Own Original Series

"Gimme My Reality Show" has Reality Television's Most Outrageous Line-Up!

Kato Kaelin, Ryan Starr & Bobby Trendy Join the Cast With George Gray as Host

LOS ANGELES -- Fox Reality Channel, the only all-reality, all-the-time cable and satellite network, has locked in the cast of the new original series, "Gimme My Reality Show!" announced Bob Boden, Senior Vice-President Programming, Production & Development, Fox Reality Channel. The series, hosted by George Gray, follows 7 celebrity reality stars as they compete to win their own reality show. The 4-episode one-hour series premieres Saturday, October 11, at 12a/11c following the 2008 Fox Reality Channel Really Awards; both produced by Natural 9 Entertainment.

"After our initial cast announcement for �Gimme My Reality Show!' the flood of interest from reality TV's celebrity community was overwhelming," said Boden, "We chose unique personalities from a wide variety of popular reality shows, who will surely deliver entertaining television."

Celebrities joining the previously announced cast of Traci Bingham, Santino Rice and Gretchen Bonaduce include Kato Kaelin, Ryan Starr & Bobby Trendy.

Kaelin first garnered attention as a minor witness, and one of the more colorful characters, in the O.J. Simpson trial. Presently, Kaelin hosts "Eye for an Eye", which is a daytime TV court show that is in syndication in 34 countries, as well as "National Lampoon's Viral Videos." He is also touring with the comedy play "The Weenie Manologues," the male response to "The Vagina Monologues."

America fell in love with Starr and her off-beat rocker attitude when she became a finalist during the first season of FOX Broadcasting's "American Idol." After touring the U.S. with Idol's top ten, she widened her fan base by touring across South America. Starr was later featured on VH1's "Surreal Life 3", where she got an opportunity to show her true colors as a genuine rock star. Ryan Starr continues to pursue her music career, and is currently recording an album.

Trendy rose into the public eye thanks to his distinctive sense of style and his flair for the extravagant. Through his interior design company, Bobby Trendy Designs, Trendy quickly became the darling of Hollywood celebrities, and decorated the homes of Carmen Electra, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dennis Rodman. Trendy's introduction to audiences came when he was selected to decorate the home of one very high-maintenance client on E!'s "The Anna Nicole Smith Show." His unique charisma turned what was to be a single appearance into an entire season of unbelievable antics, and Trendy became an instant icon of interior decorating.

This charismatic and diverse group of celebrity reality stars will battle it out through a variety of creative challenges in an effort to convince the public they should get their own future reality show on Fox Reality Channel. Judging the efforts of the stars will be a panel made up of a reality television producer, an entertainment agent, and former reality star. The show's host, George Gray ("Junkyard Wars," "Weakest Link," "What's With This House?"), will help moderate the competitive stars, and his quick wit and engaging presence will help keep him on top of the drama.

The ultimate winner will be chosen by an audience vote. S/He will be announced during the show's grand finale on Election Night (November 4, 2008), and will receive his/her own original docuseries to premiere on Fox Reality Channel in 2009.
