Reality TV show: Popstars (2001)

Before Nicole Scherzinger was urging dudes to loosen up her buttons, declaring your girlfriend busted, and banging out other dance floor anthems with the help of her Pussycat Doll associates, the former X-Factor co-host was just struggling to get noticed on the WB's Popstars, a reality show centered around finding the right members for a girl group. Though "Eden's Crush" didn't last especially long, Scherzinger did have the group to thank for helping officially put her on the map, where she has been blazing hot ever since.
