Top 5 Reality TV Destinations

 

The season of reality TV is now in full swing, with shows such as The Apprentice, X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing diving opinion across the nation once again.

 

A huge captive audience across the country watch eagerly as Anne Widdecombe battles for viewers against Gillian McKeith and Lord Alan Sugar unleashes a series of eruptions on his latest candidates. 

 

Skyscanner takes a look at the top destinations for reality TV addicts to visit long after the cameras have stopped rolling.

 

Australia – I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!

I’m A Celebrity participants continue to revolt the public with their antics in the Australian outback. For those who feel brave enough, start at the exclusive Palazzo Versace Hotel in Brisbane where the cast begin their journey each year, before travelling south to Dungay Creek in the New South Wales Outback to chow down on fermented duck eggs for breakfast or perhaps worms for dinner.

 

Essex – The Only Way Is Essex

A little different to most other UK reality TV shows, The Only Way Is Essex is inspired by US shows such as The Hills and follows the lives of a group of young people in Essex. Fans can catch a glimpse of Essex girls Amy Childs, dubbed the new Jordan, and Samantha Faiers strutting their stuff in clubs such as Sugar Hut in Brentwood and Manor House in Woodford Bridge. Other cast members including Mark Smith, best friend of Jade widower Jack Tweed, have also been spotted at trendy London nightclub, Alto.

 

Argentina – Strictly Come Dancing

The home of Strictly favourite the Tango, Argentina is the ultimate destination for dance enthusiasts to brush up on the classic South American shimmy. Strictly fans should head straight for the National Tango Academy in Buenos Aires, where the experts will be on hand to help perfect those seductive dance moves. Serious Tango connoisseurs may also want to visit the Museo Casa Carlos Gardel, a museum which pays tribute to legendary Argentinian actor and singer Carlos Gardel, regarded as the godfather of Tango.

 

Finland - X Factor

Believe it or not, the karaoke capital of the world is not Japan. Finland, which hosts the Karaoke World Championships, is actually thought to have the highest number of karaoke participants per capita in the world, and is also the proud holder of the world record for the biggest karaoke session after 80,000 fans sang 2006 Eurovision winner ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’ by Helsinki heavy metal band Lordi. A trip to Helsinki heavy metal karaoke bar Hevimesta will certainly music to the ears of X Factor fans.

 

New York - Jersey Shore 

MTV reality show Jersey Shore follows the lives of eight housemates, self-proclaimed Guido/Guidettes, as they spend their summer together in New Jersey. Fans of the show can travel to New York before heading down the coast for a walk down the famous Seaside Heights Boardwalk on Jersey Shore where the guys and girls just might be jogging past.
