Would you start your career on reality TV? The genre has propelled many of today’s celebrities into the limelight. While often steeped in drama and some humiliation, reality TV is a way to get a lot of screen time. If you are willing to fight with the “Housewives”, take a spill on “Wipeout”, or fall in love on “The Bachelor” you may just have a long and fruitful career in show business. My question today is what are your limits when it comes to reality TV? Are you game for anything or more reserved? How much are you willing to share with America? Do you have the vulnerability to be a lasting character?
To provide a little background and potentially motivation to get into reality TV let’s recap some of the stars who have made it big after getting their start on reality TV.
Lucy Hale – Made her debut on the short lived reality series “American Juniors”. Now she is killing it on “Pretty Little Liars” and as a spokesperson for Mark Cosmetics.
