'The Apprentice' runner-up Luisa Zissman is keen to star on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' but worries she wouldn't be able to cope with the snakes in camp
Luisa Zissman wants to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' - even though she's scared of snakes.
The former 'Apprentice' star is a fan of the jungle reality show and thinks it would be a great experience roughing it with other celebrities in Australia.
However, Luisa isn't sure she'd get on very well with the local wildlife that share the camp, particularly the snakes.
The sexy brunette got up close and personal with a boa constrictor at the launch of the Guinness World Records 2014 book (Guinnessworldrecords.com) at One Marylebone in London last night (17.09.13), and the close encounter with the reptile did nothing to alleviate her fear of the slithery reptiles.
Speaking at the event, Luisa told BANG Showbiz: "I would do 'I'm A Celeb...', I love it. I want to do a show I like watching and I love that show. Although I'm not sure I could handle the snakes and bugs and stuff, especially not after holding that one!"
The 26-year-old businesswoman thinks her potential spot on the show could be taken by 2010 'Apprentice' winner Stella English - who quit her job with Lord Alan Sugar in 2011 and went on to sue him for constructive dismissal, a case she lost.
And if she did get picked to be a contestant on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' Luisa is convinced the public would vote for her to do all the Bushtucker Trials.
She added: "I'm sure the public would vote for me to do the trials and I'd just be put under so much pressure. Also, I'm a really fussy eater, I don't think I could handle the eating challenges.
"I've heard they don't want me anyway, apparently they want Stella English. Also, I'm focusing on my cake business now, I've just had £200,000 worth of investment so I want to put that to good use."
Stella was at the event along with a host of other celebrities, including Warwick Davis, TV presenter Rav Wilding and BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills who acted as host on the night.
World record holder Chris 'The Duchess' Walton - who has the world's longest fingernails at 6m - was also at the party.
