Is It Just Me Or Is Everyone Famous? by Tony Cowell Summary
Some are born great, some achieve greatness. Some have greatness thrust upon them. And some have the misfortune to appear on a reality TV show. From Abi to Will, Chantelle to Shane, if there's one thing reality television has taught the masses; it's that everybody wants theirnbsp;15 minutes of fame.

Do you dream of becoming the next Jade, Paris, or Chico? In that case you need help, big-time.
