12. ASIA NITOLLANO

Show: Pussycat Dolls: Search for the Next Doll (US)
While the singer, regarded as the “best all-around performer” among the finalists, did win the competition to be the next Doll, Nitollano never actually assumed her position long enough to perform with the group outside of the show. Instead, the former Knicks cheerleader blazed through that whole group phase and sought her own solo career. After failing, Nitollano attempted to rejoin the New York Knicks organization.
