What do you get when you put eight celebrities and eight ordinary Aussies in the outback to shed more than just kilos? Channel Nine’s new Excess Baggage! Following the success of The Celebrity Apprentice Australia, this is Nine’s next attempt at mixing celebrities with reality TV. From the looks of the trailer, the stars and non-celebs are paired up to encourage each other in their mission to “fight the fat, face their demons, and change their lives forever.” It’s hosted by Kate Cebrano and stars Britney Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline, singer Christine Anu, former Australian Idol winner Kate DeAraugo, comedienne Gabby Millgate (she was also in Muriel’s Wedding), paparazzo Darryn Lyons, miner Brant Webb, former Biggest Loser host Ajay Rochester, and former Aussie Rules player Robert “Dipper” DiPierdomenico. It will air in 2012, so check out the preview below.
