Bret Michaels And Other Singers On Multiple Reality Shows

Happy Birthday, Bret Michaels! The Poison frontman turns 50 on Friday, and while the 80s hair band is still touring, Michaels is more easily seen these days competing for cash, group dating and hanging out with his daughters on reality television.

The first season of "Rock of Love With Bret Michaels," a show where women endure a series of challenges to become Michaels' girlfriend, premiered in 2007. When the winner decided she didn't want the prize after all, Michaels brought the show back for a second season, then a third. Then he brought his viewers "Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It," a look at his home life with his family. Meanwhile, he won "Celebrity Apprentice" and returned for "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice," where Donald Trump fired him on the first episode for coming back after having already won.

Michaels isn't the only singer who has extended his career with multiple appearances on reality television. Here are 15 musicians who had the same idea:
