Dancing With the Stars has often been criticized for casting stars who aren’t actually stars. Despite this, reality TV has become one of the biggest genres on television right now, and reality stars are always looking for ways to extend their fame which makes Dancing With the Stars an easy choice for them.

13. Kim Kardashian
At this point, many forget that Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian ever competed on Dancing With the Stars. In 2008 she competed on season seven of the series, but she didn’t exactly make a good impression. Kardashian was partnered with Mark Ballas, and despite high expectations for the pair, they were eliminated in only week two as the third pair to exit the season behind Jeffrey Ross and Ted McGinley in week one. It was a particularly rough elimination for Ballas who has just come off a huge Mirrorball Trophy win with Kristi Yamaguchi in season six.
