Know Any Reality TV Stars?

I know we've done this before, and it was so interesting finding out how many of us know people who have been in reality TV shows. So, do you know anyone who has been on TV?

I'll start...I know 2 people who were on Survivor. One was my very best friend in elementary school. We went to a small private school and were inseparable. We went to different high schools, and mostly lost contact, but I see her every once in a while when she comes to visit her mom. She now lives in Los Angeles. The other one was my old associate pastor. Didn't know him too well, but he did come to my wedding because he was friends with my parents. Bad news about both of them being on Survivor...they got kicked off first.

My cousin was on a show called Treasure Hunters.. he was one of the finalists... I think it only lasted 1 season however. I just read in the paper today that a kid I went to HS with is on the new reality show Love in the Wild. That should be interesting to watch!!!

When I went to freshman orientation at CMU, my group host was that football player that was on Survivor. He was a pro football player, Gary Hogeboom. I think he hid his identity for a long time before admitting who he was.

Where I live now, a hometown boy was on the country star reality show a few years ago, his name is Justin David. I've never met him but I had met relatives of his.

A guy I went to high school with ended up with a major speaking role in the movie Blue Chips with Nick Nolte back in the early 90's. He was not an actor, but got the role because he was one of the top basketball players at Indiana University and the producers cared more about his ability to play basketball than his acting ability. I am not saying that is a bad thing, just the way was.

I went to college with Amber Brkich. She was on Survivor and is married to Boston Rob.

I was a cheerleader in high school with Ashley E. from Jake's season of the Bachelor and the first season of Bachelor Pad.

I don't know any reality stars but my husbands friend just got a Tony nomination for his role in the Scottsboro Boys. We are so excited for him.

A few years ago, I had a little boy in my class whose aunt was on Survivor. She actually won, and she came to my class to eat lunch with him a few weeks later. Wow, did she make his day!

A young man I taught music to one year in middle school, (who is yikes, now....25), made it to the top 50 a few seasons ago on American Idol, traveled all over the south, and mid-west doing radio interviews, and concerts, and the next season, auditioned, made it, and was televised for quite a while on CMT's show called "Can you Duet Season 2", continued to do concerts all over, and radio interviews, recording and writing music . His duet, JB Rocket, was the runner up...Steel Magnolias won the show that year. He won a contest, back in Feb. of this year, from over 6,000 video submissions, and won $20,000 in guitar merchandise, a chance to have Keith Urban work on his original song (which he worked on the studio in last week, with my former student), a chance to work with Mac Huff, and is supposed to be on one of Keith Urban's concert tours this year, as a part of winning this contest.
The best part...Keith Urban called himself to tell him that he won.
I hope this will be his big break.
I'm so very proud of him.

Didn't want to have my screen name show up so I had to log off...people would know who I am in a second.

Jesse Csincsak from MTV Made and the Bachelorette grew up in my hometown...he also graduated from the school I teach at currently. He is only a few year younger than me.

I work with a family that was on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I actually volunteered for working on the house before I met them.

This goes back a ways, but I went to high school with Irene from the Seattle season of The Real World.
