    Anyone from Big Brother that has stayed relevant.

    First that comes to mind is Fitzy, the dude on the Fitzy&Wippa radio show on whatever the hell station.
    OK

    Looking back now it's hard to put so much shit on her when she didn't get a chance to hit her physical peak and tour experience.
    If Kournikova had an average serve she would have been a top three player and won a lot of singles titles. Unfortunately for her she had the worst serve in women's professional tennis. It was flat, it was predictable, and worse still her 2nd serve was useless in both weight and accuracy.

    As such opponents used to punish her serve to the point she was always chasing games. Off the ground she was good on both sides [but didn't use much top spin so could be unreliable at times], a fabulous net player with an excellent volley. She moved ok as well but like most Bolliteri kids she moved side to side much better than she did forwards and backwards - which never allowed her to take advantage of those volleying skills in singles games.

    Ok this is a good one because I legit had no idea who the bloke is but he used celebrity to forge a decent media career.

    Which then led me down the Chrissy Swan rabbit hole, and I'm not sure any of that will end well, but as of right now she's in the mix.

    Also, is Guy Sebastian the only bloke still selling decent #'s from any of those talent show winners?

    A few people who didn't win have done alright off them, I think Matt Corby was an Idol participant and hes gotten decent play on the J's the last few years. I think Vera Blue who's popped up recently was on one of them too, maybe the voice I dunno.

    Money Bill Williams and Haynepain....reasonable footballers with reasonable careers, but make most of their coin by talking themselves up as multi talented sportsmen and trying get as many different paying gigs as possible before they retire.

    Biggest one I can think of is Princess Mary....

    The couple met at the Slip Inn, a pub in Sydney, when the prince was visiting Australia during the 2000 Summer Olympics.
    Says much.

    yes, excellent example. You could probably pop Lisa Mitchell in there too. She was ex-Idol (non winner) but is still making a career out of it.

    Holy hell. That is fantastically left field.
    How ever do you describe that situation?
    Was she trying to be famous though, or did she just hit the lottery?

    If she 'knew' that dude was royalty and managed to wedge her way in there then thats about as awesome as it gets.

    Sam Mac (from The B-League) recently took over the Sunrise weather gig.

    I'd argue the leather skin & better-than-Arsenal-players hairdo is the only thing that's kept Daily Bailey in a gig at Channel 10.
    OK

    Put it this way we aren't talking about the contract status of some mature age rookie asshole or the validity of winning a 1st round FFA cup game ergo it's a ****ing great conversation.

    Perez Hilton is a good one he was def one of the social media pioneers.

    Paris Hilton nope she was loaded pre-fame she doesn't count.
