What better way to remedy a chaotic start to the year than by matching it with some just-as-chaotic albeit perfect escapism reality television?

We are, of course, referring to I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, a long-standing competition show bringing Australian celebrities (of varying degrees of fame) who take part in gruelling challenges as they’re subjected to harsh jungle conditions all in the name of raising money for charity—and being named the King or Queen of the Jungle.

Hosted by the usual suspects Dr. Chris Brown and Julia Morris, this year’s series kicked off with snakes, bugs, blindfolds and contestants justifiably screaming that the experience was their “worst fear”. We really don’t blame them.

But between the ruckus of challenges, we can’t help but cheer for the contestants as they face their deepest, darkest phobias. Here, we meet the entire cast of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! for 2022.

David Subritzky

David Subritzky entered I’m A Celebrity under the guise of being a successful shoe designer, but it turned out Channel Ten was playing tricks on us (though his fellow cast mates remained unaware). It’s understood Subritzky led fame-free life working in retail, social media and even as a nightclub host before appearing on the show. Turns out his real claim to fame is happening as we speak…
