Celebrity Circus, new to the summer reality TV lineup, features old actors learning new tricks. There aren’t any clown cars, though, but serious acts involving trapezes, fire, and broken arms. This is the real deal, and being a circus star is dangerous! Three celebs have been injured on the show so far during practice, and the show airs before a live audience with no nets or safety lines. We have all the details for you of the acts you will see in this weeks show!
Christopher Knight, who you may remember as Peter Brady, originally was going to take on the German wheel. He’s the owner of that broken arm, though, so he decided fire would be safer. Wee Man took on the challenge, though!
Joey Fatone, former boy band hottie, has remade his career as a host extraordinaire and he’s the ringleader of this band of celebs.
Blu Cantrell is famous for hitting the high notes with her four octave range, and she hits the high wire here. She swings through the air with the greatest of ease in a blur of peacock feathers and blue eyeshadow.
Rachel Hunter plays hoops, again with no net. Janet Evans, Olympic gold medalist, jumps out of the pool and into the ring, performing more aerial stunts. She’s been injured on the show as well, falling from a trapeze.
Stacy Dash isn’t a Clueless actress anymore. She’s doing her own stunts, and next week she’ll be flying 50 feet in the air. She fell during taping and broke three ribs, but that can’t keep her down!
Antonio Sabato Jr. shows off his six pack while performing feats of strength and balance -that’s sure to be a hit for primetime! Hey, supporting yourself on a silk scarf isn’t as easy as it looks!
