Denver pizza entrepreneur Mark Huebner isn't the only Coloradan scoring points for engaging in a "Verbal Fight/Physical Fight" on television these days. Crested Butte's Heidi Montag -- along with her fluffy-haired weenie of a husband, Spencer Pratt -- is a contestant on the lamely named NBC reality show I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, which debuted last night.
The show is like Survivor, only starring Lou Diamond Phillips, American Idol reject Sanjaya Malakar and Rod Blagojevich's wife, who ate a tarantula on last night's episode. It's okay; she did it for her kids.

On its website, NBC promises that "friendships will be tested" and "hilarity will ensue." So far, it looks like none of that has happened. But the video of Montag, of MTV's The Hills fame, crying about her missing shampoo label and all the mean people on the fake island, is pretty funny.
