When it comes to reality television, there is a limited window of opportunity for a shot at fame. These reality celebrities have made the most out of their buzz before they had a chance to fade from the public spotlight.
One of the earliest notables to make the jump from reality personality to television star, Hasselbeck was a shoe designer when she placed fourth on “Survivor”. After the show ended, Elisabeth successfully snagged a gig on the “The View”. Hasselbeck became famous for her conservative perspective, often disagreeing politically with her co-hosts. She later left “The View” to co-host the “Fox & Friends” morning show on the Fox News Channel.
