Is it worth the money going on a reality TV show or going to university?

Watch: Is it worth the money going on a reality TV show or going to university?

Becoming famous from being on a reality TV show can be a lucrative life choice, but going to university can offer benefits you can’t get from the Love Island villa.

The phenomenon that is going on reality TV as a career choice has gained in popularity over the past decade, and thousands of people apply every year for the chance to get famous.

Graduates statistically earn more than non-graduates, and that gap increases dramatically if you’ve been to Oxford or Cambridge, but does that beat the money you could make from reality TV?

Ex-reality TV stars have been known to make millions from their screen appearances, but it’s not guaranteed and many others never get that famous.
