Still, Bass might wish someone would have given him that advice a decade ago. In late 2002, the 33-year-old spent big bucks in preparation to go on a space flight as part of — what else? — a reality show. However, the sponsors that were supposed to be paying the estimated $20 million cost of Bass' training and the flight didn't come through with the money, according to MSNBC.com. He ended up paying his own way through some of the training and earning his certification as a cosmonaut. He's since shown up on TV shows occasionally, including "Dancing With the Stars."

Meanwhile, One Direction's Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson are more popular than ever. In March, they became the first British act to debut their first album at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. While they're already making fans scream on a sold-out U.S. tour, they've recently announced concerts at arenas for summer 2013! Do you think One Direction's success — and their cash — will last?
