Stacy Keibler

Let's just say there are worse things in life than being George Clooney's girlfriend. Just ask former wrestler Stacy Keibler: The leggy blonde's stock has gone up considerably since she started dating the Oscar-winning actor in 2011. Case in point: The "Dancing With the Stars" alum just landed a television job as host of the reality show "Supermarket Superstars."

The show follows competitors as they ready their product for market. Then, they pitch their product to top supermarket buyers in hopes of getting it stocked on store shelves.

"The winner of each episode will be rewarded with an investment in their product… and one individual's dream will be realized when their product receives a nationwide launch and is introduced to millions of customers in a major grocery chain," according to a statement about the show.

Sure, it's not a judging gig on "American Idol" or anything, but we're willing to bet she'll get more and more gigs as she continues to date Clooney. Plus, it doesn't hurt that she's totally hot.

Casper Smart

Keibler isn't the only one who has benefited from her famous other half. Jennifer Lopez's 25-year-old boy toy Casper Smart was only a backup dancer before he started dating the 44-year-old superstar. Now, he's enjoying the perks that come along with life on the A-list, including a new reality show. The show will reportedly follow Smart as he goes through his job as "head choreographer" of Lopez's summer tour with Enrique Iglesias and Wisin Y Yandell.

From backup dancer to head choreographer in a few short months. That doesn't happen with skill alone, buddy.

Smart might be getting too cocky with his new power, though: The pair's relationship is reportedly cooling off in the wake of some photos showing Smart exiting a gay peep show in New York City. We're not the only ones who think he's using her for fame, either.

"U know casper USED/CHEATED on the Girlfriend who got him on the JLO gig right??He jus usin JLO 4 fame/success," his former dance partner Joshua Lee Ayers tweeted earlier this year, adding that the bald dancer is gay and a "complete #POSER and foolin U and all Of @JLo fans."

"The truth is come out soon. And u gonna feel stupid. Lol," he added.

We don't want JLo to get hurt (again - she has problems picking out the right dudes), but this seems inevitable.

Do you think Stacy Keibler and Casper Smart would have advanced their careers without the help of their famous partners?
