In the midst of season five Melanie Brown of the Spice Girls spent a large amount of time in a very public paternity dispute with actor and comedian Eddie Murphy as well as working to organize a reunion tour with the girl power group Spice Girls. All of the publicity that was extended also poured over to Floyd Mayweather Jr. who is nicknamed “Pretty Boy” and he made several appearances on shows that earned him additional publicity as well.
With all of the celebrities involved in season six; it is rather quite on the home front. There have been so far no major attempts to really create massive amounts of publicity for the newest season. However, with the season just ending at the end of May it is extremely early into the summer to see exactly how the publicity that the contestants received will really pay out.
For all of the attention that is drawn, many of the contestants disappear into the background once their time on the show is over. For all of the attention and all of the viewers that the show pulls, it is also important to stay on the show long enough to actually gather a good following in order to see real results in the publicity and careers of each of the contestants. With so much going on for a few of the contestants, it is true that the career really can see a huge boost after a great run on the show.
