Khanh Ong Swaps the Apron for Adventure in “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!”

I'm a Celebrity 2024 Khanh Ong

Australia’s favourite reality series — I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! — always brings some of our brightest stars into the jungle. In previous seasons, it has starred the likes of the netball icon Liz Ellis and the brilliant singer Casey Donovan. I’m a Celebrity 2024 is continuing this proud tradition, putting reality TV juggernaut Khanh Ong back in the spotlight.

But Khanh won’t be pampered on this series. He’s instead trapped in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, competing in challenges for food and other basic necessities. The only way he can exit the jungle is by winning, being voted off by the public, or saying the iconic phrase, “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here.” The winner of I’m a Celebrity gets $100,000 to donate to a charity of their choice.

We believe Khanh might have what it takes to win I’m a Celebrity 2024, and here’s why.
