Fame is a fickle flower and no one knows that better than some of the celebs that developed out of the reality television circuit. From hero to zero, this list takes a look at some of those reality stars who dropped off the small screen and into regular Jo Shmo lives!
9. Jon Gosselin
Unfortunately for Jon Gosselin, who was featured on Jon & Kate Plus Eight, life after their divorce was not so pleasant. The father reportedly did not want to raise his children in the limelight, but his ex-wife had other plans and resumed her role as mother of the year (*cough*) on Kate Plus Eight. Jon drifted into the gutter quite literally. He initially found work as a waiter busing tables in Pennsylvania, but was reportedly fired “for blowing off shifts and coming in late.” Jon has also found work as a DJ, but in a 2016 interview on The Steve Harvey Show, Gosselin stated that he hadn’t seen all of his children together at the same time in 3 years!
