Betting tips for picking outright winner of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here
Whether you are having a tickle on sport, political outcomes or I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, it always makes sense to do your research.
Whilst there is normally no past form to study as new jungle duellers are chosen for each series, it makes sense to have a good look at the profiles of past winners before having any money on the next one.
Only the avaricious Katie Price, aka Jordan, was lured by ludicrously large sums of money to put in a repeat performance on the show. Always aware of the PR angle, she preferred to justify her jungle encore in 2009 as an attempt to achieve closure on her relationship with fellow former contestant, Peter Andre. The voting public appeared to have little sympathy for her motives and sadistically submitted her to an unrelenting run of bush tucker trials. She became such an I’m A Celebrity betting certainty to undertake the trial each week that some bookmakers even started offering spread bets on the total number of trials she would have to endure.
Reviewing the past winners list, men seem to be a much better bet than women in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, with jungle kings rather than queens being crowned on over 80% of occasions. That said, it is worth remembering that the immensely likeable and amusing Stacey Solomon prevailed in 2010. She beat Shaun Ryder of The Happy Mondays into second place.
In 2012 there was an all-girl final for the first time when former Pussycat Dolls’ bandmate Ashley Roberts was narrowly beaten by EastEnders star Charlie Brooks. Ashley had been the bookies’ 8/15 favourite in the I’m A Celebrity odds with the bookies going into the final day but Charlie was not the first winner from the London TV soap opera, as 2008 jungle king Joe Swash had also been a cast member at Albert Square. So keep on the right side of anyone from the EastEnders’ cast.
In 2011 McFly pop group member and nice guy Dougie Poynter beat the boy who had been a strong bookmakers’ favourite all the way through, Mark Wright from The Only Way Is Essex TV show. Even on the day of the final when only the two handsome likely lads remained, Mark had been as short as 2/7 in the Im A Celebrity betting. Dougie’s victory was a minor surprise, but the winner and runner-up both neatly filled the profile of past victors – thoroughly likeable men.
Whether men do best is due to predominantly female voting and women preferring to vote for men is yet to be documented. It is only a question of time before the experts or psychologists start offering scientifically based theories on I’m A Celebrity voting gender patterns. In the meantime, you have to take male contestants especially seriously. In 2011 only one woman remained in the final four and that one, Fatima Whitbread, was certainly in touch with her male side.
Men certainly don’t have to be young or aesthetically pleasing to win as past victors Tony Blackburn and Christopher Biggins spring instantly to mind. But they will have to be particularly likeable or entertaining to triumph without these attributes. Biggins was a classic case. He did not even feature in the odds at the start of the 2007 I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here series as he was a latecomer to the jungle, joining the others on day five. His larger than life but consistently likeable and superlatively entertaining personality ultimately resulted in favouritism in the odds, beating off competition from the more conventionally styled potential jungle victor, Jason J Brown, who ultimately came third.
The bookies have noticed the attributes of likely winners and it was no surprise that Joe Swash, victorious in 2008, was favourite in the I’m A Celebrity odds from day one.
The former EastEnders star not only ticked the young and easy on the eye boxes but was also profoundly likeable. He probably benefited from a relatively high and positive profile compared to some of the other so-called celebrities in that series too. His male competition included David Van Day who was no longer even recognisable as the male component of Dollar and Bucks Fizz. Very few people knew or cared what Brian Paddick, the former police chief contestant, looked like.
The police, politicians and models have so far failed to take the top spot. Attention-seeker Nadine Dorries, a little known Tory MP outraged her party when running away to do the 2012 TV show when she should have been serving in her constituency. She was duly punished, as the first one eliminated by the voting public. Sports people are probably worth more serious consideration.
Phil Tufnell, the immensely personable ex-cricketer was crowned as jungle king in the second series in 2003. Martina Navratilova, the multiple Wimbledon Ladies champion was runner up in 2008 and Jimmy White, the snooker star, reached third place the following year. World heavyweight boxing champ David ‘The Haymaker’ Haye took also took third in 2012 with grumpy Darts pro Eric Bristow filling fourth place.
Past performances suggest that it is probably best to avoid putting money on boxers (the articulate Haye being a notable exception) and ex-footballers in I’m A Celebrity. They may score highly on their physical attributes but they simply don’t seem to have the necessary personality to make it through to the final stages.
Shortcuts for I’m A Celebrity betting success
If you are looking to make a few quid in the Im A Celebrity outright winner betting market for this show then it pays to remember the lessons that can be learned from the past winners list:
- Personality is the single most important attribute: past winners are invariably likeable and make entertaining viewing. Simply being nice is not usually enough. Winners are almost always funny too.
- Gender bias: over 80% of past winners are men.
- Aesthetics: most past winners are relatively attractive.
- Bitches and bad boys may enjoy increased longevity if their antics are entertaining. Janice Dickinson comes immediately to mind. But so far none has won. When it comes down to the final two, people seem to vote for the person they like as they will not see either of them again.
