Paris Hilton, 2004

That's hot. In December 2003, Paris Hilton's reality show The Simple Life debuted on the tail of her sex tape, setting up 2004 to be a big year for her. The heiress, who was also dating Nick Carter that year, was the dumb blonde everyone loved to laugh at. She used that to her advantage, too, releasing a book in the Fall of 2004 and setting herself up as a bankable brand.
