Let’s face it — after a long day, sometimes you just want to plop in front of the television and indulge in some mindless drivel. But given all of the options vying for a spot on your DVR, it’s easy to get sucked into the wormhole of a program that makes you feel just a little disgraced with yourself.
It’s safe to say that summer 2013 was definitely Sharknado season, with the campy Syfy movie dominating Twitter (not to mention our DVRs).
And since the flick starred Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, two of the top hotties from the ’90s, we were wondering how many other teen idols found themselves gracing the guilty-pleasure realm of TV movies. Check out our gallery of other young stars who went a slightly cheesy route.
The 2013 Emmy Award nominations will be announced bright and early tomorrow morning, which means we’ll soon have the pleasure of knowing who to root for come September and what to immediately start complaining about on Twitter.
