If you wanted to see Rod Blagojevich sent to a far-away jungle, your wish could soon come true. Reuters has the news:

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Rod Blagojevich, recently removed from office as governor of Illinois, has made a deal to star in NBC's upcoming summer reality show "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here," the network confirmed Tuesday.

"Rod Blagojevich will be a participant on the show pending the court's approval," NBC said.

...

According to the Chicago Tribune, Blagojevich's attorney told a federal judge Tuesday that he will file a request to loosen his client's travel restrictions to participate in the show, which will be shot in Costa Rica.

Blagojevich seems like he would be a natural for reality T.V. I can't wait for lines like this: "This mosquito repellent is a [expletive] valuable thing, you just don't give it away for nothing."
