Despite his amazingly terrible, yet ingenious music video hyping the show, and himself, Spencer Pratt has reportedly quit I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.
A source close to production says that Spencer and wife Heidi Montag walked off the show's set for good after the live portion of last night's season premiere.
It is unclear how the program will handle their leaving.
The Hills stars were among the biggest "celebrities" on the new NBC show (which is based on a UK show of the same name), but Sunday, rumors began surfacing that Speidi's second reality TV stint was becoming a total disaster.

The gruesome twosome apparently didn’t realize that they were going to be dropped in Costa Rican jungle and forced to compete in various audience-picked challenges ... despite the fact that this is the entire premise of the show.
“They wanted to be treated like stars,” an E! source said. “[Spencer] literally thought he and Heidi were staying in a Four Seasons, working out and getting a tan.”
They were also displeased with the caliber of stars on the show, calling the crew - which includes the comedy duo Frangela, former NBA player John Salley and Mesozoic Era supermodel Janice Dickenson - “not famous” and “nobodies.”
An NBC vice president flew down to Costa Rica to personally ask the couple to stay, but apparently to no avail. Oh well. Guess Speidi is just far better suited to making millions from staged reality shows and photo ops on U.S. soil.
