If you ask me on a normal day- what do I think of reality TV, you´d normally get a frosty response. Most of these shows, which seem to fill up allof the schedules these days, are a tired format. Big Brother, for example. It was addictive at first, but come on…..it´s a little tired isn´t it? And the pond life that goes on the show…it´s no wonder they are canning it (in the UK anyway- it lives on overseas).
And Strictly Come Dancing? Perrrrrrlease….
But we have to admit to watching 2 shows. I´m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! and The Aprentice. The difference in these shows, is that the presenters keep them fresh. Ant, Dec & Alan Sugar. Classics.
As much as I wince at the thought of watching a load of tosh on the telly (C list celebs eating Crocodile unmentionables), we are drawn to it like flies around…honey.
And talking of I´m a Celeb, Get Me Outta Here, there is a way of ratcheting up the enjoyment (or cringe factor) even more with a free 50 quid bet from Paddy Power. Excellent!
You can bet on the following:
