Reality TV comes in all shapes and sizes, with all manner of personalities finding their ways in front of the cameras. Celebrities and entertainers definitely aren't excluded from that, with the early 2000s being a particularly booming time for celeb-reality, as VH1 so wisely(??) dubbed it. So even though there aren't as many as there once were, you can still find plenty of famous faces using reality series to make that money, either on the side or as a full-time gig. Here are 8 such faces.

Vanilla Ice

After adopting the shiveringly flavorful rap persona, Robert Van Winkle went To the Extreme as Vanilla Ice and later became intrinsically linked with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before fading away from the public eye. He resurfaced briefly for his rap-metal remix of the inescapable "Ice Ice Baby" before finding a temporary home on The Surreal Life, solidifying his reality TV placement. Seemingly out of nowhere in 2009, the DIY network decided to pay that funky white boy not for his music, but for his home renovation and house-flipping skills, and The Vanilla Ice Project has been on the air for six seasons so far. That's a load-bearing mind that it boggles.
