Top Reality _ _ _ _ (_) Girls (Or You Can Enter Your Own 4 letter Word)
Passport Paper is all about the hustle, no matter what trick or trade it stems from. This time we’re giving our props to the top reality show females who’ve been able to go from nothin to somethin by putting their looks or personality on display. Again, you had to come from nothing and make something of yourself so Kardashians and those descending from known money are excluded. Some may say these girls need a reality check… Just make sure you make it out to their government name.
13. Brittanya O’Campo – Rock of Love
We can’t lie… She comes in number 13 mainly because she’s extremely hot! But lets be clear, she has been able to do a few entrepreneurial ventures such as launching her own line of tee-shirts distributed in No Fear stores nationwide as well as pimping 1 VH1 show into 4. We wouldn’t be surprised if she gets her own dating show soon… as she gets out of jail. If you want to see ALOT MORE of her (wink-wink), click here
12. Tiffany Pollard – Flavor of Love
Recognized by most as New York from the Flavor of Love series, Ms. Pollard was able to go from crazed Flav love interest into finagling Vh1 into producing not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, but 6 shows she can be accredited to on Vh1. She also got a few lines in the Movie First Sunday… Again this is about hustle, not looks.
11. Evelyn Lozada – Basketball Wives
Evelyn is known for being the confident, sometimes ignorant but sexy damsel from Basketball Wives. Her attitude and looks have made her a standout on the show. So much so that Mr. Ocho quickly took notice and popped the question within months. Rumor has it we can expect the couples show in the near future. She also gets props for using her “tools” to get whomever to throw her that bread for the shoe store.
10. Kristin Cavallari – Laguna Beach, The Hills
Not only does she have quite possibly the sexiest name in history, but she also was able to nab her lifetime security when she divorces Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (we’ll be waiting!) Kidding aside her exposure from the show and other acting ventures caught the Hail Mary throwers eye, and they are due to get married next spring. Since her acting career is bombing, looks like Jay put on his red trunks and whistle!
9. Nicole Alexander – Flavor of Love
Better known as Hoopz from Flav fame, Nicole has been connected to a few “ballers” in the past, but was able to reel in “The Daddy” of them all when her and Shaq made their romance public. She’d be higher on the list, but with no kids and no ring, she’s still due to get nothing from The Diesel.
8. Linnethia Leaks – Real Housewives of Atlanta
Nene knew what was needed to become a stand-out on a reality show; a loud mouth, snappy jokes, and willingness to throw down when need be. She’s been able to create her own wave with a book and stand out on the hit show Celebrity Apprentice.
7. Jenni Farley – Jersey Shore
With the crew reportedly raking in a cool $100,000 an episode (which is unheard of) for season 4. Jenni has been able to become one of the more likable characters and not compromise too much of herself. She gets tens of thousands for appearances and just inked a spin-off show featuring her and Snooki.
6. Nicole Polizzi – Jersey Shore
Widely known as Snooki, Nicole went from almost leaving the house after a few minutes to turning her 15 minutes into 30. She recently released a book, gets paid tens of thousands for showing up at tanning salons, launched her own line of slippers and receives a cool $20K for red carpet events. #winning
5. Lauren Conrad- The Hills
Lauren has written three books in her L.A. Candy trilogy with a spin-off trilogy in the works, and has two fashion lines; LC by Lauren Conrad and Paper Crown. She, her hairstylist, and her makeup artist run a beauty website, The Beauty Department. It may be safe to say she’s the Queen B of the teen reality star!
4. Heidi Strobel -Survivor
On the show she stripped for peanut butter, but then got paid close to a million to do it for Playboy, in what may be one of the hottest spreads in the past 10 years… (Likely cus she did it with her buddy and cast-mate) That exposure caught the eye of Phillies hurler and 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels. The two are now married with babies.
3. Jamie Chung – Real World San Deigo
We remember her being mostly quiet on The Real World, but that likely served her well as she was quickly forgotten for that and started a new career for herself. Jaimie has starred in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Sorority Row, Dragonball Evolution, Veronica Mars, Greek, Samurai Girl, Grown Ups and Castle. Next, she can be seen in Sucker Punch, and The Hangover 2 as Stews fiance! #winning
2. Elisabeth Hasselbeck – Survivor
We may not have to agree with her, but we will respect her. She was able to take a reality show into becoming a household name millions of people watch everyday on The View. She now gets paid a pretty penny to debate and sometimes offend people across the nation. She’s also written health books and endorses numerous organizations and health products.
1. Sarah Palin – 2008 Presidential Campaign
They claim she was the governor of some country named Alaska, but when we were introduced to her she was, well… An unknown. Her reality series was filled with drama, deliberate confusion from the “gotcha media, but mostly it was filled with comedy! Sarah was able to take her show and rake in millions of dollars and was even able to make it a family act by getting her daughter multiple reality shows, endorsements, and even getting her the nod as the spokesperson for abstinence (even though she’s been knocked up a couple of times now). If that ain’t gangster we don’t know what is…
