Why is Rob Schneider famous!?

Dork 08-11-2005 11:38 PM
Okay, I might change the title later but ole' Rob was the inspiration for the thread.

You know how some people are famous and you have no idea why? Like Rob Schneider for example. I have no idea why I know his name. He makes terribly unfunny movies. But I know his name.

The rules of the game are simple:

1 Person A posts the name of a celebrity
2 Person B posts why the person is famous
and so on and so forth

We can take Rob as an example. Apparently he got his big break as a writer on Saturday Night Live.

Okay, I'll start.

You actually have to put how she got famous, if I'm not mistaken. Not just make up something random and utterly useless.

And then add someone.

Since I don't want to kill the thread, I'll continue it.

Tara Reid is famous for starting out as a B-Movie actor and working her way up. Also as a notorious party girl in Hollywood (along the same lines of Paris Hilton).

I have a comic where the guy in my avatar beats up a warewolf Rob Schnieder. I too have no idea why he's famous. He just popped into my head as the guy I wanted to have beaten up.

Don't even question it...

I don't know...I used to see that alot back when SNL was still being rerun on comedy central (before they decided "hey, MadTV has a similar format! So it must be as good! No, no. The fat bald dude isn't phil hartman. Yes, it's wonderful one of the voice actors from MGS2 was on your show, no, this dosen't make it good). It was..kind of amusing, I guess.

She gets..mild points for going to my old high school (long...before I was there, I mean.). It got us an under 5 minute mention on an E! True hollywood story...they cut out the interviews with everyone but the headmaster though, and I think the voiceover guy mispronounced something related to that part.


...Who? I'm...is he/she/it really FAMOUS?

I'm not killing the thread I don't think..it's just...could anyone really even pinpoint who that is? I sure as hell can't.

Spanish: She's been in the business for years, she can actually play an instrument, she's married to the son of a former president (forgot what country), and her songs sound better in her native tongue.

Andy Dick is famous for absolutely no reason. He's like an extra that gets more than 2 lines. Then I guess people like his funny face. And speaking of funny looking guys..

Tom Green.

well, fame isn't always good. for example some of the people who were mentioned.... well, i harbor no respect for them, due to their fame, etc.
if you really boil it down, most famous people are famous for many reasons, but the undeserved are usually famous for being lucky, or having connections.
Travis Bickle 08-14-2005 07:28 AM
Yeah...I'm just going to ignore the above and continue the thread...yeah...

Tom Green is famous for his absurd antics on MTV and being married to
Drew Barrymore for a month.

Was...he one of Carters assorted lunatic relatives?

Like the one who marketed "billy beer"?

Why is Ashton Kutcher famous? He doesn't deserve it at all...
