These days, there's no shame in being a reality star. People send in audition tapes by the thousands for the chance to compete on Survivor or gross out their housemates on Big Brother. Andy Warhol was absolutely right: Everyone is famous for 15 minutes.
The reality stars on our list have already had their 15 minutes, but we want more.

Stars like Richard Hatch, Puck, and Paris Hilton made reality TV what it is today, for better or worse. Without them, we probably wouldn't have Real Housewives. Just let that sink in.
Whether you love them, hate them, or just love to hate them, you have to admit, they make for damn good television. Continue on to see which reality stars need to make a comeback.
