Al Roker may have been thinking "I'm a weatherman... Get me out of here" while he was interviewing The Hills publicity magnets Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag Monday on the Today Show.
An aggressive Roker wasted no time in interrogating the pair who recently quit the NBC reality show I'm A Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here. The usually jovial Roker began the segment by asking them if they agreed with a recent review that they were "all that is wrong with celebrity." Pratt said the heel act he puts on is a play for the cameras, and that he aspires to be a hero in real life. Montag stood by her story that she fell extremely ill in the jungle, which eventually caused the couple's exodus from the show.
The interview continued testily along until an irritated Roker ended the segment somewhat abruptly.
The venerable weatherman then Twittered a message about his Monday guests: "Heidi and Spencer are an interesting couple. famous for...being infamous. Bad and vacuous behavior. I think we're at minute 11 of their 15."
Time will tell Al, pun intended.
