Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? "Celebrity Edition"

So during this BCS National Championship game, there have been multiple ads for this "celebrity edition" of the "hit" game show Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader (we already know the host definitely isn't). And that's fine - all game shows have these special weeks to use name power to hype the show but I've got a big problem with their usage of the word celebrity.

Since when is the cousin of George Bush considered a "celebrity"? I don't care if he's the host on some whack TV show. This is FOX not Versus. You would hope they could afford to move their way up the celebrity totem pole a little higher than Billy Bush. Was Spike Fereston not available?

i guess no celebrity wants to show how dumb they actually are.
