Celebrity photography

There has always been a demand for celebrity photography. Some photographers make a living following actors and models. When they get a scoop, many magazines will pay high fees to run the images.

Music photography is another form of celebrity photography. Most music photographers focus on capturing the energy of live music performances and some also get to work backstage or on tour with bands.

Celebrity Survivor

Celebrity Survivor

Celebrity Survivor, also known promotionally as Celebrity Survivor: Vanuatu and Australia's Celebrity Survivor, was an Australian television series that screened on the Seven Network in 2006, based on the popular reality television show Survivor. The new series joined the many celebrity-oriented reality programs already in their lineup, such as It Takes Two and Dancing with the Stars. It was hosted by Ian "Dicko" Dickson.

Guy Leech, the eventual winner, or "Sole Survivor", of the show donated AU$100,000 to the charity of his choice, Ride Aid Inc, with the other contestants' charities receiving AU$5000 each.

Although better received than the earlier Australian Survivor, Celebrity Survivor was still only a modest success in the ratings and a follow-up series has not materialised.

The Italian version of this format was aired for the first time in 2003 and became a hit show. Currently the 6th edition is being aired on Rai Due.

While the Nine Network currently hold the rights to screen the U.S. version of Survivor, after the failure of their 2002 local Survivor project Australian Survivor the Seven Network found a loophole in their contract and obtained the rights to produce Celebrity Survivor. Castaway Television, who produced Australian Survivor, was again involved in the production of this second Australian version Survivor.

The show was filmed on Éfaté Island in Vanuatu in the South Pacific. The series was filmed over twenty-five days, or three weeks, from late May to early June 2006, with promotional advertising beginning in July. From promos and footage shown on the Seven Network, it appeared that Celebrity Survivor borrowed many elements from the U.S. version's ninth season, Survivor: Vanuatu - Islands of Fire.

The one-hour show was rated PG (parental guidance recommended) and aired during Thursday nights on the Seven Network. The executive producer of Celebrity Survivor is David Mason, who also produces other shows on the Seven Network, such as Medical Emergency.

Before the series began, host Dickson and a select few of the Celebrity Survivor contestants appeared on the Seven Network's breakfast news show Sunrise to promote their series. This paralleled to what occurs in the U.S. version, with the show being promoted on The Early Show, CBS' own breakfast news program and what happened during the Nine Network's Australian Survivor venture, with the series was featuring on the early morning show, Today and also on A Current Affair.

Amber Petty and Nicolle Dickson also appeared in television commercials for Olay Total Effects anti-wrinkle cream, which were broadcast during the series.

Note 1: Imogen won immunity, but gave it Nicolle at tribal council.

Note 2: Justin and Nicolle tied 2-2. The jury (Elton, Gabrielle, and David) voted in order to break the tie. All three voted against Nicolle.

Celebrity (game)

Celebrity (also known as Celebrities or Lunchbox) is a party game where teams play against each other to guess as many celebrity names as possible before time runs out.

Before play begins, every player receives several slips of paper (usually 10 for one round, or 5 or less for multiple rounds), and writes the name of a different celebrity on each. The names must be kept secret. All of the names are then placed in a hat, or similar receptacle.

What's a legal name? While the game is called Celebrity, the names in the hat are not limited to those of famous figures from popular culture. Other acceptable names are those of fictional characters (e.g., Sherlock Holmes), famous animals (e.g., Lassie), or any name that is well known to the group of players. Players may decide at this point on a guideline for how obscure the names can be, such as A name is permissible if it is expected to be familiar with at least half of the players.

After all the names are in the hat, the players are split into two or more teams of three or more players.

One team is chosen to go first, and that team selects a player to give clues to the rest of his or her team. Play begins when the clue-giver picks a name out of the hat. From that moment, he or she has one minute to get his team to guess as many celebrity names as possible before time runs out.

When the team guesses the celebrity name correctly, the clue-giver draws another name from the hat and continues until time is up or there are no more names in the hat. If an illegal clue is given, that name is set aside and another name is drawn from the hat.

When time is up, the current clue is reinserted into the unguessed collection. This allows for a particularly difficult clue to be guessed by several players on both sides. The team is awarded a point for every name they guessed correctly. They lose a point for every illegal clue that was given. Alternatively, if an illegal clue is given, the round ends immediately. At the end of the game, all clues will be gone, and you can simply add up cards held by each team to determine a winner.

The next team then picks a clue-giver and play continues until there are no more names in the hat. Teams must rotate the clue-giver each round until every member of the team has been given a chance.

You can play the game in three rounds, using the instructions above as round 1. After all of the names have been guessed in round 1, they are returned to the hat. The second round proceeds in the same manner except that the clue-giver is now limited to only one word. The word can be repeated many times, but only one word is allowed. Hand and body gestures are also allowed this round. In the third round, the clue-giver cannot speak at all, but must suggest the name to his or her team mates using hand motions, gestures, and pantomiming, similar to the party game Charades. After all the names have been guessed in the third round, the team with the most points is declared the winner.
