PHOTO: When Blago Met Heidi And Spencer

The Hills stars (and newlyweds-to-be!) Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, whom PEOPLE can confirm will be participants in NBC's new incarnation of the reality show I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here!, struck a pose with former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Thursday in Los Angeles.

A judge ruled earlier this week that Blagojevich, who had hoped to participate in the show, will not be allowed to leave the country while still under investigation in his home state. The ex-governor flew to Los Angeles to help promote the show anyway.
