Latino feevee off up 'Jungle'

MIAMI — English-language Latino feevee Si TV is challenging conservative pundits Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and Pat Buchanan to spend a weekend in the “Urban Jungle 2: South Central” house, in South-Central Los Angeles, to kick off production for the second season of the reality show.

“Urban Jungle” transplants a group of privileged suburban kids into the barrio to experience life as immigrants. It began taping this week.

For three weeks, 13 contestants will face harsh manual labor as they pick strawberries in the fields and compete against each other in a popsicle-selling contest, graffiti removal, selling oranges on freeway offramps and cleaning houses in Beverly Hills.

In this second season, participants also will be expected to volunteer their time working with children at the neighborhood community center.

The winner will receive $50,000 in cash and prizes — and ostensibly some life lessons.
