Ten most inspirational reality stars:

marion grasby

1. Marion Grasby – She has shown you don’t need to win a reality show to be a winner. Marion ended up finishing ninth in season two on Masterchef Australia, however she has used it as a springboard for her burgeoning international empire of Marion’s Kitchen products and a television show.

susan-boyle 2. Susan Boyle – Her audition on Britain’s Got Talent went viral with people mesmerised that an unemployed middle aged women who had lived with her mum her whole life had this amazing voice.  It was a life changing moment for her, as she became the runner-up of her series and a best selling recording star.

bethenny frankel

3. Bethenney Frankel – She was canny enough to realise the power of reality TV. Once she hit the screens of The Real Housewives of New York City she used the publicity to go from making healthy muffins to a multi-million dollar Skinnygirl products empire. All this was achieved in just five years along with getting her own reality and talk show.

83rd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

4. Jennifer Hudson – The power house singer came seventh on American Idol. She has overcome professional obstacles and personal tragedy to become the unexpected break out star from that series. She has now won an Academy and Grammy award, the first of the American Idol alumni to achieve this.

I think I need a JB more than ever before now LOL. And IMO everyone can have their own views. And thanks to all the well wishes on both my wins (a new life and the comp) … 😀 😀 😀

I too have a compelling BACK story… but as this involves Ajay and not following the Manual Handling & Lifting OHS Code I guess it’s not appropriate for a family-friendly site like this.
Oh well, well done Zac.
In all seriousness I reckon Didier Cohen was an good choice. That series of Celeb Apprentice was good viewing. Something I reckon they’ll never replicate again.

10 daisy { 07.30.13 at 7:21 pm }

I’ll invent thights and make a lot of money and you’ll be sorry for making fun of me. I’ll be like the inventor of that backwards dressing gown for stupid people that didn’t realize you could just wear your dressing gown back to front. Sorry to all the people that bought one.

HA HA CB on the back story. Have you checked out the delicious Tahan yet? No heavy lifting there.
