The golden age of reality television has come and gone. Sure, Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Big Brother are still going strong — but when it comes to reality stars, they just don't make them like they used to. The late '90s and early '00s saw an explosion of reality programming and along with it, everyday people who got their 15 minutes (or more) of fame.
Take for example, Joe Millionaire star Evan Marriott, who went from construction worker to heartthrob. Or Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who parlayed an appearance on Survivor into a 10-year hosting gig on The View. To this day, we are still asking ourselves, "What happened to Brooke Hogan?" Is she still creating pop music somewhere with her wrestling pro dad Hulk Hogan cheering her on? We sure hope so.
