Some say there are two types of celebrities and stars; ones who earned fame through hard works and dedications in everything they do to achieve it, and those who are famous simply for almost no reason at all.
We all can appreciate the former category as they have given us good entertainment through performances on movies, TV series, music, or artworks of any sort.
As for the latter, they often just stir up enough controversy only to get their faces on screen all the time.
Talent and professionalism remain the best recipe to go in the entertainment industry.
Celebrities with those attributes are able to ensure steady stream of works and deservedly earn their rewards in the forms of worldwide recognition and admiration as well as financial success.
They receive love for what they do and inspire many others to follow their footsteps. For celebrities in the following list, however, doing just about nothing at all gives them faster results, and sometimes the fame sticks around too.
10 Bristol Palin
There are only two things to make Bristol Palin pretty famous: getting knocked up at 18 while her mother, Sarah Paling, was a Vice Presidential candidate.
Bristol also did Dancing with the Stars, and almost single-handedly destroyed the entire season.
Much more talented contestants such as Rick Fox, Brandy, and Audrina Patridge went home in her place, leading a lot of viewers to turn their love for the show into hate.
She was cast in Teen Mom OG after Farrah Abraham left the show, the latter also is on this list.
9 Teresa Giudice
In case you have never watched Teresa Giudice in Real Housewives of New Jersey, then you are in luck. She first came to scene in the reality show.
Soon enough Giudice earned higher stardom status for her exceedingly extravagant lifestyle.
Despite looking like she had an endless stream of money, Giudice and her spouse filed for bankruptcy in 2009.
Viewers were appropriately stunned because what they had seen on screen so far told a different story.
From that point on, a series of legal troubles kept hitting her including conspiracy to commit bank fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud, and bankruptcy fraud to name a few.
8 Heidi Montag And Spencer Pratt
Of all faux celebrities who deserve no fame, yet do have it in their hands, Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt are among the worst.
Both emerged from The Hills, a supposed-to-be reality TV show featuring the lives of several young women in Los Angeles, California.
A lot of the more experienced viewers would see the couple as the gross bottom of irrelevant characters who appear to be uneducated at the same time.
Despite the hatred, they managed to come up with new controversy time and again, and for that they reappeared on screen pretty often.
7 Kate Gosselin
Reality TV celebrities seem to love sharing much of their lives, sometimes to the point where unnecessary personal details are displayed without any sign of worry that it might just not be in their best interest to do so.
Then again, a sheer number of reality shows is happy to cast people, not for their acting talent, but their ability to create drama or at least dramatize unimportant bits.
A faux celebrity who fits the description well is Kate Gosselin, the one from TLC series Jon & Kate.
The show is about raising kids, a total eight of them.
