What are you doing here, Emma Stone?
Look, no one is out here pretending like reality TV shows are ~prestige television~ (JK, I will not rest until The Masked Singer wins an Emmy), but there's no denying that it has given us some of pop culture's biggest stars. Without shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, American Idol, and Star Search, celebs like Kelly Clarkson, Kim Kardashian, and Christina Aguilera wouldn't be the household names they are today. Like, even freakin' Beyoncé, blessed be her name, owes part of her career to her stint on reality TV. (Confused? Stay tuned.) Meanwhile, there's a whole fleet of celebs who I'm guessing you had no idea got their start on reality shows—like Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale, Emma "Casual Oscar Winner" Stone, and even Mad Men's Jon Hamm.
Basically, what I'm saying here is that reality television has produced some of the world's faves, and without it, you—an adult woman—wouldn't have a Harry Styles shrine in your house, Gigi and Bella Hadid might not be supermodels, and Kylie Jenner wouldn't be a Lip Kit billionaire. On that dramatic note, here are 50 celebs who got their start on reality television, y'all.
