Bruce Jenner – Bruce Jenner's current claim to fame is, of course, his role on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." But Jenner is a former Olympic athlete.

The Olympian has also had cameos on "Murder, She Wrote" and "Family Guy" as well as several reality competition shows.

But Liukin has also had TV cameos in "Gossip Girl," "NYC Prep," "Make It Or Break It" and "Hellcats," and has appeared in the movie "Stick It."

The twins, who have appeared on the cover of "Making Music Magazine," released their first album, "Let It Rip," in 2009, along with the band's lead singer David Baron.

Brian Boitano – It was a "South Park" musical number that famously asked, "What would Brian Boitano do?" and after being satirized as a semi-recurring character on the animated sitcom, Brian Boitano has become known not only as a champion figure skater, but also as a bit of a sage. Boitano, who won gold at the Calgary 1988 Winter Olympic Games and competed again in 1994's Lillehammer Winter Games, has appeared in movies "Blades of Glory," "Ice Princess" and "Carmen on Ice," a performance for which he won an Emmy Award.
