Best Reality shows: I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

Network it airs on: ITV (U.S. versions on ABC and NBC)

Years it’s aired: 2002 to present

What it’s about: Celebrities all enter the Australian outback, where they’re made to face a range of challenges. Some of them involve sitting in baths with creepy crawlies, while others involve eating some of the most questionable food going.

The aim is to be the last celebrity standing as viewers vote individuals out. Sometimes a celebrity wins purely due to popularity, but there are times that celebrities surprise us with their abilities to complete challenges and prove they deserve the prize for their charities.

Why it’s one of the greatest: There’s nothing better than watching celebrities out of their comfort zone. That’s something I’m a Celebrity… offers. The series originally started on British TV and it has grown to offer versions in other countries, with ABC and NBC being networks to air the U.S. version. However, the British version will always be the best.

This is an interactive game show of sorts. The viewers get to vote on the celebrities doing the challenges, which can lead to some entertaining moments like the ones who freak out the most are picked frequently due to the laughter that comes from it. We get to see Olympians, reality stars, actors, and more pushed to their limits while they also learn about each other and form their own friendships and bonds throughout the series.
