The demise of Kim Kardashian's for-profit sham marriage to Kris Humphries seems to have been the tipping point in terms of her popularity. Nobody has ever liked Kim for her personality, but most of us were willing to tolerate her vapidness and money grubbing fame-whoring because she is just that hot.
It's not that Kim isn't hot anymore, it's just that she's 31 years old, and in the five years since the release of her infamous sex tape she's been one of the most overexposed people on the planet.
Overexposed in every sense of the word.
People are getting bored with her nonsense, and there's no way anyone is going to keep paying attention to her if they aren't desperate to see her naked.
That means we need new hot girls from reality shows to look at. Sure, nobody is going to be able to take the place of Kim's caboose, but what they may lack in trunk junk, they make up for in personality, general craziness or very large boobs.
Since most reality stars don't have any discernible talents, the best way to leap into the spotlight is by dating a professional athlete.
Here are 20 hotties that I'd like to see make the transition from embarrassing themselves on reality television, to playing the leading lady in some lucky athlete's life.
