Celebrity Boot Camp to Air Sept 30 on FOX Submitted by: Los Angeles Public Affairs Story Identification Number: 200292420758 Story by SSgt. Chad E. McMeen MARINE CORPS MOTION PICTURE & TV LIAISON, Los Angeles, Calif.,(Sept 25, 2002) -- It's 4 a.m. on a cool August morning when a plain-white bus pulls up to its destination to load recruits as it has done many times before. The white exhaust bellows from the rear of the vehicle as the driver waits for 10 Hollywood celebrities to board what will become their limousine. Their destination -- Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, Calif. Minutes later the brakes let out a screech as the wheels of the bus come to a halt. A Marine who is all too familiar with this situation boards the bus, his face hidden by the shadow of his jet-black campaign cover. A few words of instruction and the game begins. The goal for these 10 recruits, who are used to being pampered, is to survive four days with three former Marine Drill Instructors in a place called Boot Camp. At 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on September 30 FOX television will air "Celebrity Boot Camp" which filmed aboard MCRD San Diego and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in the Camp Deluz training area. In addition to being filmed almost entirely aboard Marine Corps property, various units aboard Camp Pendleton provided critical support to ensure the show's success. "Official support was provided because of our association with 'Boot Camp' reality shows," explained Capt. Shawn Haney, Project Officer with the Marine Corps Motion Picture & TV Liaison Office in LA. "It also allows us to highlight the professionalism and leadership of the show's DI's and our ideals of teamwork, discipline and motivation." The Drill Instructors were faced with the daunting task of instilling values and creating a positive change in the recruits during this short four-day evolution. "Celebrity Boot Camp" is a two-hour special based on the popular 2001 FOX series 'Boot Camp' which filmed throughout a 30-day period and ran on television for 9 weeks during which the contestants were narrowed down to one winner, Jennifer Whitlow who received $500,000. The rules of the two shows are very similar except in "Celebrity Boot Camp" the Drill Instructors rank the recruits during training and only the best continue. The field is narrowed down to two recruits who will undergo a grueling eight-event competition called the "Gauntlet," which will put them through mental and physical tests of endurance and strength. The winner of "Celebrity Boot Camp" will be determined by a combination of the dismissed recruits- votes and total "Gauntlet" victories. "We are privileged once again to be collaborating with the United States Marine Corps and are thrilled about the return of several of our original 'Boot Camp' Drill instructors," said Eric Schotz, President and Chief Executive Officer of LMNO Productions. Each of the Drill Instructors are active-duty Marines stationed in Southern California. CWO-3 Tony Rosenbum is a utilities officer with 1st Combat Engineer Battalion at Camp Pendleton, SgtMaj. David Francisco is currently with the Western Recruiting Region at MCRD San Diego and GySgt. Juanita Moore works as a Contract Specialist aboard Camp Pendleton. ==================================== i loved this how the first time around, i was laughing my ass off. this will be great. little fragile chick "hey i just need a minute, like leave me alone, go away." Rosenbum goes nucluear. lol. this is gonna be great, don't miss it. somebody tape it and then put it up on the site, cause i don't have cable. hopefully global will carry it. (i hope).

ONLY four days? Why not four WEEKS? I'd even get it as a PPV - let it run continuously the four weeks (face it, these individuals don't need sleep) and make sure to put a 5-minute break in every four hours to change tapes... Let's see, which ten on Hollywierd's finest would I send in... Ben Affleck Barbara Streisand Alec Baldwin - Hell, why not the whole damn clan? Rosie O'Donnell I haven't been keeping pace with the celeb scene, so someone help me out here... FFZ

No need for a the breaks if you overlap VCR's. I'd PPV "Playmate Boot Camp."

This show will probably BLOW. But how funny would it be if they got REAL drill instructors? And I mean of the Full Metal Jacket variety.
