I’m A Celeb fans are convinced that Kris Jenner has fixed Caitlyn Jenner’s bushtucker trial participation.
The devil works hard but Kris Jenner works harder.
Even before I’m A Celeb 2019 kicked-off, the British public speculated that Caitlyn Jenner would face every bushtucker trial of the series because momager Kris Jenner will have something to do with it.
Even though Caitlyn is already taking on new challenges like a champ, being 1 of 2 to skydive 10,000 feet and being the only member of her team to keep calm when a spider was spotted crawling around their jungle vehicle (a spider which had even former rugby player James Haskell reacting like a scared child), she was picked for the first bushtucker trial.
Which begs the question: Why would the British public want a composed Caitlyn taking on bushtucker trials knowing that she will calmly embrace it? Is it because we enjoy watching her so much? Is it because we think she’ll collect the most stars? Or, is the popular opinion that Kris Jenner has rigged the system for her entertainment?
The Twitterverse certainly thinks it’s got something to do with the KUWTK personality:
Caitlyn will face her first bushtucker trial, titled ‘Bugged Off’, tonight alongside GMB’s Kate Garraway (presumably picked because of her anxiousness demeanour during the first episode’s height challenge). The two celebs will be suspended above ground where they will be joined by over 50,000 rats and insects.
It’s a shame that it’s not snakes she’s facing as she’s already used to them back home.
Speaking of the Kardashian/Jenners, none of the sisters have acknowledged their dad/stepdad’s entry into the jungle, which suggests that the family isn’t ecstatic about her participation in the show.
And here I was anticipating the whole family (including Kanye) greeting Caitlyn on the other side of the bridge when she leaves the jungle. I still have hope for this moment of guaranteed TV gold as perhaps they don’t realise that the show has started over here in the UK. Or perhaps, as usual, I’m being naive.
One thing is for sure: even if Kris hasn’t got anything to do with Caitlyn’s I’m A Celeb experience, she’s sure to be tuning into the show – sat in the comfort of her Hidden Hills mansion – chuckling at her ex-husband being put through her paces.
I mean, what ex wouldn’t enjoy their former partner being covered in insects?
Albeit, it seems that Caitlyn may have the last laugh as she’s already proving popular with the British public. In fact, she’s so engaging that viewers are already predicting that she’ll be crowned Queen of the Jungle.
Can Caitlyn really win I’m A Celebrity 2019? Only time will tell.
