Is there a word for someone who joins a lot of contests?

  • Like how this one castaway from Survivor pops up in The Amazing Race and now he's in Big Brother.

  • This person was in American Idol 5 years ago, 2 years ago, in The Voice and now appears in X-Factor.

  • I can think of no such existing word or phrase, so I'm not providing this as an answer, but I might call such people career reality-TV contestants. – Jason Bassford Aug 17 '18 at 3:26
  • See "regular" -- also, there's a previous related post with the answer "regular." – Kris Aug 17 '18 at 7:05
