    Yay! Pete is back. I’ve missed you!! Colin Loin (sic Lane) is not a patch on you!! Lot’s of love and good thoughts. Mxo

    I don’t remember the comment but it would not have been naming the retailer. Links however are banned. You can reach me via the Contact page to discuss further if I still haven’t answered the question? Thx.

    There’s bound to be tension between some of these folks. I wonder if one of the players will last the whole show given the legal troubles their better half is facing. David – on a separate matter, I had a comment disallowed a little while ago. I want to stick to the rules and wondered if my comment was rejected because I mentioned the name of a retailer I buy DVDs from?

    Loved the first season, gave up hallway thru season 2 (coz the catchup site was way too buggy(, not interested in this cast at all. Bring back a ‘regular’ Aussie Apprentice!

    Who are half these people? At least in previous years they’ve had household names!!

    Well as I don’t watch Current Affair….I have heard it here first….and pleased Pete is back on the small screen…albeit a weird show….like some…not others on the list…but I guess that is what you are supposed to do….will give it a try.

    I’m just glad Ben from Big Brother isn’t on after all. Interesting line up. Yeah, Dawn won’t take shit from any one, so Prue better watch herself.

    @Leppie you need to go and see a doctor LOL

  10. HardcorePrawn January 29, 2013 at 5:57 pm -

    @tomothyd – and surely a dancer, rather than a “star”, from an overseas production of Dancing with the Stars, shouldn’t constitute one either!

  11. Leppie January 29, 2013 at 5:56 pm -

    Interesting cast. I actually know the majority of them this time around. It’s so sad, but I’ll be totally watching this year now.

    Even worse, I’m looking forward most to Layla. :(

  12. BigJMATHEWS January 29, 2013 at 5:52 pm -

    Well this is at least a descent list of people, last years was not that great.

  13. Bella January 29, 2013 at 5:51 pm -

    Love Pete Everett! Its great to see him back. Thanks for the sneak peak!

  14. Daniel January 29, 2013 at 5:41 pm -

    Seriously, that lineup is pathetic.

    Prinnie & Layla don’t deserve to classed as celebs, meanwhile who on earth is Roxy Jacenko.

    And haven’t most of the others already appeared on DWTS – Brian Mannix, Dawn Fraser, Kim Johnson, Rob Mills.

  15. Gaz January 29, 2013 at 5:27 pm -

    Some outspoken people amongst them. Love Prue McSween, she tells it how it is.

  16. JayElle January 29, 2013 at 5:26 pm -

    Wow not one person on that list could make me even consider watching it.

  17. pahmer January 29, 2013 at 5:24 pm -

    I look forward to seeing Peter Everett on the show. I think he’ll be great. He’s very funny.

    Like DWTS, the definition of celebrity is stretched to the extreme by this “Z” Grade mob.

  19. catherine January 29, 2013 at 4:48 pm -

    Brian Mannix he was a classic on DWTS. John Steffenson interesting. I think he may ruffle a few feathers.

    Few egos in there.

    I think Prinnie and Layla will be out of there league.

    I smell catfights between Dawn and Prue

    I don’t get how being a contestant on The Voice or Big Brother makes you a celebrity.
