By Reality TV World staff, 03/10/2009
CBS is planning a few pranks of its own on April Fools Day.
The network has announced that it will air I Get That A Lot, a celebrity prank show that will feature stars performing mundane jobs and capture the reactions of passersby in the process, on Wednesday, April 1 at 8PM ET/PT.
When approached by the public, the celebrities -- Survivor host Jeff Probst, Project Runway host Heidi Klum, Extra and Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew host Mario Lopez, singer and former Newlyweds star Jessica Simpson, rapper Ice-T, and singer LeAnn Rimes -- will deny their true identities and pretend to be amazing look-alike versions of themselves.
Probst will run the cash register at a grocery store while Klum will work the counter at a pizza shop and Lopez will sell hot dogs at a vending stand in New York City's Central Park.
Ice-T will pretend to be an athletic shoe saleman while Rimes will work as a waitress at a Nashville diner and Simpson will work at a computer repair store.
