The 'Drill Sergeant Immersion' Practitioners: "Hell's Kitchen's" Gordon Ramsay, "Celebrity Apprentice's" Donald Trump The new kid: "The Janice Dickinson Model Agency's" Janice Dickinson Style: Remember R. Lee Ermey in "Full Metal Jacket"? Just like that, except instead of preparing soldiers for war, the screaming here is just about aggrandizing the ego of the host. This hosting method is tricky -- it can turn off just as many viewers as it electrifies -- so its use is doled out sparingly. The last host to adapt the "Immersion" was former model Janice Dickinson, whose Oxygen Network reality show began three years ago.
