Your not that famous!
While being on television for three months and getting a shot at a half million dollar grand prize is noteworthy, the effects of that kind of fame is short lasting and rarely ever leads to anything significant. With that being said, that doesn’t stop some of the reality show stars from trying anyway.
That didn’t stop Jessica Graf from going on Twitter and asking Texas Roadhouse to reserve a seat for her and her marine boyfriend Cody. Some fans of team Jody found the tweet funny and just light fun, while others questioned if the duo was just trying to capitalize on their 15 minutes of fame.
Cody already won America’s favorite player during The Finale of Big Brother 18 and while some fans couldn’t stand the team from the beginning, the moment they embraced for the first time during the finale was somehow one of the most cheered moments.
They took that success to The Amazing race and Jessica Graf even got a guest role on a soap opera because of her reality star fame. With that being said, its not out of the realm of possibilities that the two are trying to use their 15 minutes of fame to the fullest, but who can really blame them?
Christmas Abbott, who finished third after breaking her foot at the beginning of the season, just got her new Nike second skin line announced, and Kevin, Paul, Ramses and Jason are all apparently meeting up for Thanksgiving with the money they make from selling seats to the event going to charity.
Needless to say, everyone is using their celebrity in one way or another and that’s ok. The problem is with what Jessica and Cody are using it for. For example, Paul, Jason, Ramses and Kevin are giving their appearance proceeds to charity and Christmas is using her fame to further Woman athletes.
In the end, it just feels like Jessica and Cody are using their powers for selfish gains and not for the good of others. Maybe that will change and maybe the others will start getting more selfish with their ventures, but it still sucks that you try to use your fame to get a free steak at Road House on twitter.
