Patti's New Reality

"I'm a Celebrity..." premieres June 1

The wife of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is in the Costa Rican jungle to compete on a TV reality show that he was barred from going on.

"It certainly is going to be interesting," said Patti Blagojevich during a Thursday morning MSNBC interview with Tamron Hall.

Illinois' former First Lady will compete with nine other celebrities on the show "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here," which premieres Monday on NBC.

She announced last week that she would participate in the show after a judge barred the former governor from leaving the country.

Other contestants include actor Stephen Baldwin and former "American Idol" contestant Sanjaya Malakar.
