Another celebrity has bailed out of the Costa Rican jungle set of "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!"

Actor Stephen Baldwin says he exited the NBC show over the weekend because he received more than 125 insect bites in eight days.

In a statement, he says the bites were so bad he had an extreme allergic reaction that caused him to lose sleep and 22 pounds.

The actor says he will continue to work on behalf of his chosen charity LOVE 146, which fights child sex slavery and exploitation.

"I'm a Celebrity" ends on Wednesday.
