While many young folks dream of bringing in the big bucks with a career on camera as an A-list actor, the fame game is tough to play, and often unreliable. Some celebrity actors and actresses manage to make it work earning a living in Hollywood, while others got out of the acting world to work normal jobs. For some people, the steady salary of a 9-to-5 job is worth more than trying to pursue a superstar salary. As far as risk-benefit analysis is concerned, a career that is not controlled by fame and fads is probably a safer bet.
1. Angelina Pivarnick
After unceremoniously skipping town early in Season 1 of The Jersey Shore for refusing to show up to work at a t-shirt shop, Angelina Pivarnick has a whole new work ethic. While the remaining cast was living by their three-letter life motto, GTL (gym, tan, laundry), Pivarnick is living by three letters of her own: EMT.
The majority of the cast of The Jersey Shore has stayed within the world of reality TV, but Pivarnick’s career is considerably more stable. Without having to rely on ratings or outrageous on-air antics, Pivarnick’s last stint at the shore took her out of the spotlight and into an ambulance, saving lives.
