National and International Reality Shows in Nepal

In the last five years, I have seen a drastic evolution in the sector of reality shows in Nepal.

I don’t mean to say there weren’t any reality shows before five years but recently the growth and craze of the reality shows have taken the entertainment industries’ particularly reality shows popularity to new heights.

The entertainment industry in Nepal has seen the entry of several international big reality shows like Nepal Idol, Himalaya Roadies etc. into the Nepali market. These shows have been able to establish their own brand and fanbase among Nepali audiences.

It is not only the international reality shows and franchise shows that are gaining heights in Nepal but the local national reality shows like Comedy Champion have been able to compete with international shows in Nepal.

I will be writing and updating about the various reality shows that were recently active or are currently active in Nepal. I will also try to mention more information about the shows like the total number of seasons aired, aired media, seasons, winner and much more.

If I have missed any shows, please leave it in the comment section below and I will make sure it’s updated asap.

Reality shows in Nepal

As different national and international shows are/ were active in Nepal, I will group the list into two categories: international and national or local.

Nepali reality shows

Over time, many reality shows have entered the Nepali entertainment market, some were very successful in terms of popularity and profit, while many couldn’t last longer.

Some shows have continued for several seasons and have been able to create and engage audiences.

Many Nepali shows have stopped or ceased production after first or few seasons for many reasons, the common being lack of proper production investment, concepts and production quality.

Here below I have listed some Nepali reality shows:
