These two have had similar careers, so we want to know who has worked the spotlight better – Kim or Paris? Vote at the end to let us know!
They Both Have/Had Reality TV Shows
Both Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian have been involved in numerous reality TV shows. Hilton was on “The Simple Life,” “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” and “The World According to Paris.” The most popular of these shows was “The Simple Life.” It was a huge hit. For the first episode, 13 million viewers tuned in. It was during this show that many people first developed an interest in the heiress. She was beautiful, vacuous and ridiculously wealthy. While people may have liked “The Simple Life,” they didn’t like “The World According to Paris.” It was canceled after only one season.
Kim Kardashian seems to have been inspired by Hilton’s success with reality TV. In 2007, she and her family decided to try their hand at it by launching their own reality TV show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” This show was an instant hit and became so popular that it has spawned numerous spin-offs, including “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami,” “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” “Khloe & Lamar” and “Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons.” “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is going on its 10th season and it doesn’t look like it is anywhere close to slowing down.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
