Tom Arnold Reveals The Insane Amount He Was Paid On ‘I’m a Celebrity!’
Tom Arnold was just one of the celebrities who appeared on reality TV show “I’m a Celebrity Get Me out Of Here” but he was definitely the highest paid!
Viewers have been left furious after discovering just how much the US comedian was compensated for spending some time in the jungle.
Arnold gave an honest response when one viewer tweeted this week to ask him what had convinced him to sign up for the show.
“$600k-$700k,” he replied, saying he was “Out of comfort zone. Scared. Embarrassed” on the show.
Arnold (unsurprisingly) was the first person voted out of the jungle so he would’ve pocketed around $100,000 all up. Which isn’t bad if you consider the actor pretty much spent his days lying on the camp bed and not participating in much at all.
In fact viewers were quick to blast his lazy behaviour and called him out for always looking so miserable on the show.
When asked how he enjoyed his time in the jungle Arnold certainly didn’t hold back. “It’s horrible, are you kidding me? It’s the worst thing I’ve ever been through. I didn’t know it was going to be real, or I wouldn’t have signed up for it.”
Arnold was even quoted as saying he thought they would be staying in a luxury hotel and only have to venture out into the jungle for an hour a day! Hilarious Tom! Clearly your agent has some explaining to do!
