Reality TV Shows | How much do celebs really get paid?

Like tons of us out there, we like watching a bit of reality TV now and again and when it gets to this time of year we always look forward to watching 'I'm a Celebrity get me out of here'. 

We know that realistically, not everything is going to be quite as it seems on the TV because celebrities can only be asked to do so much - so we were not surprised to read about the infamous waterfall possibly being a fake. Whether it's fake or not we still love the show and find it hilarious watching celebrities, who would normally have quite a privileged and easy life, doing things out of their comfort zone. The classic eating trials will never get old and make you chuckle after a long day in work. 

It did get us thinking though about why celebrities would put themselves through this. On some shows you see a few people that have maybe dropped off the radar lately and might be looking for a way to get back in the limelight, but 'I'm a Celeb' always seems to get some fairly big names in there so what's in it for them? 

We don't live in a fantasy world where we believe they do this for fun or out of the goodness of their hearts, they obviously get paid to go in there, but what is interesting is just how much each person gets. We found a great article which gives a bit of an insight to this. 

What was probably more interesting was the fact that not everybody gets the same amount for going on the show. I wonder if they have a scale that they measure someone's status on in order to work out what they should pay them? I can't say I blame people of going on there though - I know i'd do the same if the opportunity was given to me. The article did get me thinking though and I'm going to keep my eye out for more of this kind of thing to work out what celebs on other shows get paid. 

We then started thinking about ways in which we could earn a little extra and try to at least have a taster of the Celeb life (I'm sure we've all been there at some point). We were thinking about things that we could sell on eBay or similar selling sites to maybe raise some extra pocket money. We came across a blog post on the Cash Lady site, that gave us a bit of inspiration. We were amazed to find out what some people have sold in the past and it definitely gave us some food for thought!
