This is a gripping expose of what really happens to reality TV contest winners and losers.
TV writer Keeley Bolger examines the highs and lows of being a star of reality television and the price people are willing to pay for fame today. This book asks if winning really is everything and whether the nation has reached saturation point with TV talent shows?
Exploring all the major UK TV talent contests the author interviews contestants, record label executives and some of the established pop stars who were challenged in the charts by the newcomers.
Bolger reveals the ongoing fortunes of acts that have appeared on "Pop Stars", "Pop Idol", "Fame Academy", "The X Factor" and "Britain's Got Talent" to discover just who got what out of appearing and just what the public thinks about the winners and losers.
