Entertainment Specials To Bet On

The Most Popular Reality TV Shows and Entertainment Specials To Bet On

Once upon a time, bookies were just for sports. but in recent years, TV show betting has become increasingly popular.

This all began when the first reality shows like Big Brother and the X Factor came on our screens. It was inevitable really; at the same time as reality television shows emerged, online bookmakers were coming into their own.

It’s no surprise, then, that nowadays we can find betting markets for all sorts of markets. Fuelled by the traction of reality TV programmes like the Masked Singer, and Britain’s Got Talent, novelty betting has experienced exponential growth. And it’s not just for our favourite shows either, we can now bet on the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, TV awards, and other TV specials.

Love Island

Love Island attracts millions of viewers each season. The show’s popularity has fluctuated over the years. Incredibly, the first episode of the 2019 show attracted a staggering 3.3 million viewers. It hasn’t always been this way though.

When the show first launched as Celebrity Love Island in 2005, it featured the likes of Calum Best, Liz McClarnon (from Atomic Kitten), and Hollyoaks’ Paul Danan. Though the idea behind the reality TV show is largely the same, nowadays, there have been many changes too.

In terms of betting markets for this show, most betting sites offer bets on Male Winner, Female Winner, Next Elimination, and the Winning Couple. If you’re looking to test your instincts and possibly win big, you might want to check out the latest Love Island Winner odds.

The Oscars

It’s no surprise that the biggest night in Hollywood finds itself on the betting market. The Oscars have existed since 1929 with the first award for Best Actor award going to Swiss-born Emil Jannings for his roles in The Way of All Flesh and The Last Command.

The show itself rakes in millions of viewers each year, many of whom like to dabble with betting while watching too.

Popular bets include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress markets. Not all bookmakers allow you to place bets on every market so it’s worth shopping around.

The Next James Bond

With Daniel Craig no longer 007, bets for the next James Bond are taking centre stage. Lots of names are being mentioned: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Henry Cavill, Rege Jean-Page, and Tom Hardy to name a few.

The excitement surrounding who will play the next Bond is driven by the popularity of the Bond franchise, the cultural icon that is 007, and the legacy of the movies.

Strictly Come Dancing

Strictly Come Dancing began in 2004 and its format has been adapted in numerous countries around the world. Of all of the TV shows in the UK, this is enjoyed across all generations. Combining fun, competition, and drama, Strictly is a real favourite reality show in the run-up to Christmas.

Various celebrities take part in the competition each year, pairing up with professional dancers. The overall winner takes home the converted Glitterball Trophy.

In the betting sphere, for TV shows like Strictly Come Dancing, there are many betting markets. These include Top Male, Top Female, Winner, and Next Elimination. Many take their chance with outright bets (bets placed before the season begins) while others prefer to see how things develop as the season continues.

I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! first premiered in 2002 and has become an enduring franchise in the UK and elsewhere. The show involves a group of would-be celebrities living together in a remote jungle. They face challenges to earn food and other rewards for the camp. These include tasks like obstacle courses, spending time in enclosed spaces with rats, snakes, or spiders, and eating exotic insects.

As you might imagine, reality TV betting for this show is popular! Punters vote for Top Male, Top Female, the Next Elimination, the Winner, and other markets that are specific to individual contestants like who will do the next bushtucker trial or how many stars someone will achieve. If you’re eager to test your predictions and potentially win big, exploring the latest I’m a Celeb odds could add an exciting dimension to your viewing experience.

Sports Personality of the Year

The BBC Sports Personality of the Year (sometimes referred to as SPOTY) is an annual awards ceremony that recognises sporting achievements.

The Sports Personality of the Year is decided by a public vote from a shortlist of nominees. These are typically athletes who have excelled in their fields over the last year.

SPOTY is a popular market in TV specials betting but it’s not just the outright winner that you can bet on. Other markets include winner without a certain contestant and a top 3 finish.

White Christmas 

It gets people excited all throughout the year: will it be a White Christmas? There’s nothing quite like a sprinkling of snow to get into the festive spirit but it’s somewhat of a rareity these days.

Besides wagers on TV shows, betting sites like to get in on the excitement by offering odds on whether or not a White Christmas is on the cards. You’ll find markets on a nationwide White Christmas as well as more precise bets based on different locations like Buckingham Palace and Belfast Airport.
