Surreal Life All-Stars Return to Compete in VH1's First Ever 'The Surreal Life Fame Games' Premiering Sunday, January 7 at 9PM ET/PT

With Brigitte Nielsen, Ron Jeremy, Chyna Doll, Vanilla Ice, Traci Bingham, Verne Troyer, Jordan Knight, Pepa, Emmanuel Lewis, Andrea Lowell and C.C. Deville Hosted by Robin Leach

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 12 -- Audience favorites from all six seasons of Surreal Life kick-off 2007 in a new competition series. VH1's first ever "The Surreal Life Fame Games" hosted by the certified bearer of champagne wishes and caviar dreams, Mr. Robin Leach himself (Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous), determines who is an A-list celebrity and who is a B-list wanna be.

Premiering Sunday, January 7 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1, "The Surreal Life Fame Games is a competitive twist on Celebreality. This time, eleven of the most memorable cast members from Surreal Life will come together in Las Vegas to compete in a series of "fame games" which will whittle them down to just one winner of a $100,000 grand prize.

"The Surreal Life Fame Games" is a ten episode elimination featuring tongue-in-cheek competitions that parody the trappings, costs, conceits and drama of being famous. The Surreal celebrities will have their Hollywood survival skills challenged, their popularity measured and their ability to navigate through the treacherous world of tabloid stardom put to the test. From the very first episode the celebrities will have to struggle to remain on the comfortable "A List" side of the house by winning competitions. The losing players will be banished to the humiliating "B-list" quarters where tension builds as the A-listers enjoy gourmet meals prepared by a renowned Vegas chef and the B-listers are forced to make their own ham sandwiches. The contestants are reminded of the volatility of fame as the A-list drinks champagne and get pro-tennis lessons while the B-list is left to play ping-pong and eat crackers.

The hour long show will be hosted by Las Vegas local Robin Leach and feature many Vegas locations, events and celebrity cameos. Surreal Life all-stars returning to compete include: Brigitte Nielsen (Season 3), Chyna Doll (Season 4), Vanilla Ice (Season 2), Pepa (Season 5), Emmanuel Lewis (Season 1), C.C. DeVille (Season 6), Ron Jeremy (Season 2), Jordan Knight (Season 3), Verne Troyer (Season 4), Andrea Lowell (Season 6) and Tracy Bingham (Season 2).

The competitions will include everything from "Paparazzi Hide-and-Seek" to "Scandal Video Film Festival" to the "Hotel Room Trash-a-thon" to a funny little game called "What's Charo Saying?" All the games test a celebrity's level of relative fame. For example in one simple game, their names are entered in Google and the one with the most hits wins! In another, the celebrities compete to see who can get the most famous person to call into the show. While the premise of all the games will be fun, the competitions will be real -- and in the end, only one Surreal All-Star will claim the final prize.

VSPOT, VH1's broadband channel will be home to a host of "Surreal Life Fame Games" exclusive content including, never-before-seen footage from the show and interviews with the cast.
