NBC's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! revival might have to be renamed I'm a Reality Star... Get Me Out of Here! at this rate.

Dog the Bounty Hunter star Duane Chapman, fomer America's Next Top Model judge and The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency star Janice Dickinson, and The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag will all be among the celebrity contestants competing on NBC's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! revival when it premieres on June 1, OK! Weekly reported Friday.

In addition to Chapman, Dickinson, Pratt, and Montag, television news personality Geraldo Rivera will also be part of the show's cast, according to OK! Weekly.

Montag and Pratt's representative subsequently confirmed their I'm a Celebrity participation, which was first reported by gossip blogger Perez Hilton, to Access Hollywood.

Earlier this week, lawyers for disgraced former Illinois governor Rob Blagojevich also revealed that he will be part of I'm a Celebrity's cast if a federal judge allows him to travel to the show's Costa Rican set to participate.

Each episode of the Survivor-like U.K. celebrity reality series will follow a group of celebrities who are "dropped in the heart of the jungle to face fun and comedic challenges designed to test their survival skills," according to NBC.

Similar to its first stateside version on ABC in 2003, NBC's revival will have home viewer votes determine which celebrities compete in certain challenges to win food, supplies and luxury items. 

In addition, home viewers will also determine which celebrities are eliminated, with the ultimate winner being crowned "King or Queen of the Jungle" and receiving a cash prize for their favorite charity.

Following it's premiere on June 1, I'm A Celebrity... will air Mondays through Thursdays in the 8PM ET/PT timeslot for three consecutive weeks and be telecast Monday through Wednesday in its fourth broadcast week, with the finale currently slated to air June 24.

NBC ordered the Granada America-produced reality series in February, more than five years after the ABC version stranded 10 celebrities in an Australian rain forest and aired live over the course of 15 consecutive nights. 

The ABC series was eventually won by dancer and Jennifer Lopez ex-husband Cris Judd.
