TVNewser Knocks Out Jeremy Pepper in Blog-Off

NBC is pitting blogger vs blogger for a chance to join the cast and crew of “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here” in Costa Rica for a chance to…err, work for NBC for free and blog the behind the scenes happenings.

So far blogger trumps PR pro, as mediabistro’s own Steve Krakauer survives round one with a post about shrieking bullet ants and parasitic botflys (they lay eggs under your skin!), while Boingo Wireless’ PR guy Jeremy Pepper went with an inside look at his beauty products.

Despite the obvious attraction of the stingiest ants on earth vs. what’s inside Jack Black moisturizer, we expected Pepper to put up a hard fight given the savage nature of PR people when faced with a contest they can game.

“I’m a Blogger…Get Me Out of Here!” heads to round two, with eight bloggers remaining.
