Celebrity reality shows. Like them or loathe them, they’re here to stay. These days you can watch ‘celebrities’ do pretty much anything, whether it’s raise money for charity, live together in a house with no contact with the outside world, or trying to survive a couple of weeks in the jungle. Some celebrities really will do anything for a bit of money and a career revival, but there are some who seem to have made a career out of doing reality shows.
