Elizabeth Filarski Hasselback (now on The View) was on Survivor (don’t ask me which one) right after graduating from the school where I went to grad school.  Her now husband was a year behind her, so she was on campus a lot.  My student workers were star struck. 

That same year, a student was on the Real World in New York..the second time it was in New York. 

 

Tabitha, the woman who won Shear Genius and now has the Bravo show called Tabitha’s Salon Takeover is from my town.  She still operates her salon there.

 

I grew up in a town that is near the Real Housewives of New Jersey.  They’ve only filmed in my town twice.  Once, they were sitting at a restaurant’s patio table…but that restaurant doesn’t have outdoor seating.  I think they put three tables out on the sidewalk so the cameras wouldn’t have to come inside.

The restaurants they film in seem to be 40+ minutes away from where they live.  Oh, and the hair salon they go to is tiny and in a strip mall.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: actually, I don’t know when they would have lived in the Hershey area, Kate had the babies in Hershey but they lived (and she still does) in Wyomissing/Wernersville. And they worked and lived in Reading when they became “famous”.

Kasey Kahl from Ali’s season of The Bachelorette (the guard and protect your heart guy) is from my hometown! Since the show he’s always promoting his charity on the local radio station and it’s so annoying to have to hear him on the radio!
 
Keven Federline is also from here…we only produce real winners I tell you! lol

@iheartnerdyboys:Yepp the tattoo guy!!! It was painful for me to watch how awkward he was haha. It was very entertaining. Since he’s “famous” now and doing tons of fund raisers he does events that some of the other guys from that season come to also. I’ve never been to one of his things but he keeps talking about how he’s going to have Chris L. out for an event and if he does I may be tempted to go and see what it’s all about!

Okay, I kind of hate to admit this, but Tiffany Pollard aka “New York” from Flavor of Love & other VH1 reality shows is from my hometown. Ug. She is a poor representation of the area.

I lived right near the rich housing area in “Real Housewives of Orange County” growing up.  Stayed a few nights in some of the house there (not anyone on the show, as far as I know, but who knows?).  Huge!
