Now let’s see what those so-called celebrities did (or didn’t do) to become famous. If anything, this list proves that pretty much anyone can become famous given “the right place and the right time”.

What better cesspool to crawl out of than “Jersey Shore”? It wasn’t enough that people actually watched this pile of crap, but they also idolized the crazy, spoiled and at times idiotic participants, like Snooki here.
