Caitlyn Jenner is braving the jungles of "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" for personal gain or loss, depending on the perception of the reality star's means to an end.


With the UK version of the reality show making its premiere on Sunday, Caitlyn shared that her motivation and reason behind joining the show is to shed some pounds before the festive season hits in all its culinary glory.


"The only reason I'm doing it is to lose a few pounds. I gotta fit into that outfit when I come back. I have the family Christmas party to go to. I wanna look good," Caitlyn said.

According to Caitlyn, the rations in camp will help with the slimming process, but the fact that there would be no stylists at hand during their jungle adventures caught her off guard, but it wasn't enough to discourage Caitlyn from her set task at hand.

"Do we get hair and make-up? Noooo?! We don't get hair and make-up? Oh my god!" Caitlyn exclaimed.

The jungle and all that lurks in it don't concern Caitlyn as much as her fellow contestants on the show, and Caitlyn intends being the peacekeeper and the "parent" of the group.

Those joining Caitlyn for the adventure starting on Sunday are Kate Garraway, Myles Stephenson, Andrew Maxwell, Ian Wright, Roman Kemp, Jacqueline Jossa, Nadine Coyle, and James Haskell.


Not Caitlyn's first "I'm A Celebrity" rodeo, she took part in the US version of the show back in 2003. However, on her new "I'm A Celebrity" bio, one is reminded of her achievements as an athlete with her joint title of Olympian and TV Personality.

During a recent BBC interview, Caitlyn is referred to as "the great double," for her most recent achievement of becoming one of Glamour's 2019 Women Of The Year, and her history as an Olympic champion.

During the 1976 Olympic Games held in Montreal, Caitlyn (then still Bruce Jenner) not only won Decathlon gold but also smashed the world record in the process.

The multi-talented reality star also recently smashed into her 70s, and with the Jenner-Kardashian clan known for being big on birthday celebrations, Caitlyn's was no exception.

Kim Kardashian took to social media to share that she will always love the now-70-year-old, who later shared her gratitude for getting "so much love" from her family and friends on her special day.
