Malcolm in the Mangroves — Frankie Muniz Takes on ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’

I'm a Celebrity 2024 Frankie Muniz

You might know him as the star from the 2000’s Malcolm in the Middle, but Frankie Muniz is now all grown up. Additionally, Frankie has decided to tackle a new challenge, starring in Australia’s beloved I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

On the 2024 season of I’m a Celebrity, Frankie is competing against a bunch of other celebrities to stay in the African wilderness for as long as possible. During his time here, he has to complete challenges to win meals and other basic resources. Frankie can quit the show by saying the phrase, “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here.” He can also be voted off by the Australian public.

Does Frankie have what it takes to thrive in these harsh conditions? Or will he be one of the first contestants to go?
