Are Celebrities Paid to Appear on Reality Shows

I’M A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is currently on and I am loving it. I enjoy watching celebrities living the rough and crazy live in the jungle. It is good entertainment, and I am sure many of you enjoy seeing the cool celebs outside of their comfort zone. I know I enjoy seeing the celebrities in the jungle. Just like I enjoy seeing them being stuck in a house with other celebs in Celebrity Big Brother. Taking a break from work to watch the clips on TV adds a bit of fun to my life.

In the early days, I use to wonder if the celebrities ever got paid to drop everything in their “real life” to go on a reality show. The very busy celebs would likely lose some money while in the jungle, so it would make sense for them to get paid to appear on the show. The curious me did some digging around, and I came across an article – How Much Are The Celebs Paid? on Conversations About Her website, and that pretty much answered all my questions.

Celebrities are offered a huge amount (depending on how successful and popular they are) to appear on reality shows. The celebrity fees were uncovered thanks to Unreality TV and Cash Lady. Just take a look at the infographic below.

I am amazed at how high some of the figures are, just look at Spencer Matthews, famous for playing himself in the hit reality show – Made in Chelsea, being paid 300,000 to appear on I’M A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! However, there is a rumour that he walked out of the camp with nothing after his 3 day stint.

Apart from the crazy high fees, I am also amazed at how varied the fees are as well. Just look at Lewis Bloor, famous for playing himself on the ITV hit show – The Only Way is Essex, he was paid £50,000 to appear on Celebrity Big Brother according to this infographic, and then we have Stephen Bear (who I have never heard of), known for appearing on Ex on the Beach and Shipwrecked, being paid only £12,000. It just confirms the fact that reality show is all about popularity, almost like the blogging industry.

Avner Brodsky, co-founder of Cash Lady commented on these findings –

“It’s surprising to see the figures the networks spend bringing our favourite shows to air. It’s something that we, as consumers, don’t really think about when we plonk down on our sofa on an evening.”

 

I always knew that the celebrities would get paid crazy money to appear on reality shows. It is a business and they are a Brand at the end of the day. They won’t drop everything to appear on a reality show with the hope of winning the prize money. They would have to be compensated for their time. But I never guessed the fees would be this crazy and varied in some instances. I guess that explains the ‘bad blood’ between some of the contestants on the show some times.

What do you think of these fees? Are you as surprised as I am?

My Thoughts on Brexit

brexit

 

I was quite vocal on social media (Twitter) about Brexit. I shared my thoughts with anyone who cared to read and it led to many people unfollowing me because I was not on the popular side of the fence. But I didn’t care. I had strong views that needed to be shared regardless of how unpopular it was. I am usually not interested in politics but I was very interested in Brexit because I knew the future of our children – the next generation, depends on how it swings.

I voted to leave in EU, and I am happy I did. I remember monitoring the results all through the night, only to fall asleep to dream about vote results, lol. It was a crazy period but I am glad it is all settling down now. I won’t go into why I decided to cast my vote to leave EU because I really do not feel like going into it or arguing with anyone on why I choose to believe what I believe. I don’t need to explain the reasons behind my votes and you shouldn’t either. I believe we all have the right to think for ourselves and follow our gut instincts. When it came to Brexit, it didn’t make sense in my head for the UK to leave the EU, with all the crazy/scary predictions around, but it made sense in my gut, and when it comes to my head or gut, I will always go with my gut instinct – it has never failed me.

The Cash Lady Infographic below features some of the worst Brexit predictions about possible financial outcomes of UK leaving the EU. I don’t see any of these happening by the way –

Some of these predictions are so funny but then again I am not surprised they are. I read even more shocking predictions before the results were announced. I hope these predictions don’t come through (I know they won’t), and I hope to see a stronger UK in a year’s time. I am keeping my eyes and ears on the Brexit news so I know what is going on. I can’t believe how adult I have become with my sudden interest in politics.

What do you think of these Brexit predictions? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below. Feel free to share this post on your social media channels as well.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.
