#1 THE DUGGAR FAMILY

The Duggar family has acted holier-than-thou for ten seasons on 19 Kids and Counting. But, little did we know that the Duggars aren't exactly the picture-perfect religious family they pretend to be in front of the cameras. In May 2015, reports surfaced that the eldest Duggar child, Josh, had allegedly molested five young girls, four of whom were his sisters, as a teenager. Turns out his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, knew about what their son did when it happened and still chose to do the reality show all these years without admitting the real truth.

The whole situation was made worse when it was reported that the family patriarch opted to protect his son before his daughters, and didn't turn Josh into the police until a year after finding out. Due to the statute of limitations in Arkansas, Josh was never charged with the crime. These revelations led to TLC cancelling 19 Kids and Counting in July 2015.

#2 JOSH DUGGAR

Josh Duggar needs his own entry specifically because he is, as he refers to himself, a "hypocrite." In May 2015, reports of Josh's molestation of five young women as a 14-year-old in 2002 shocked everyone. The father-of-four quickly resigned from his position as Chairman of the anti-gay, and anti-abortion group at the Family Research Council. In August that same year, hackers hit the infidelity website Ashley Madison, and leaked that not only was Josh a member, but that he was reportedly seeking "one night stands," "experimenting with sex toys," and plenty more. Josh then admitted to having a porn addiction and cheating on his wife. The 27-year-old said in a statement, "I have been the biggest hypocrite ever," and admitted he is ashamed of his double life.

#3 TAYLOR SWIFT

Taylor Swift loves giving off that 'good girl' image, but she's not as innocent as she seems. She likes to talk about being super supportive of female artists, yet she wrote a song, "Bad Blood," reportedly about fellow female pop star Katy Perry after she supposedly tried to steal one of Taylor's backup dancers. She packed the song's music video with her mega-famous girl squad. Rather than including Perry to stop any feud rumors, Perry was left out completely and had us believing that Katy might be on to something with her tweet: "watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing..."

Then there's Swift's back and forth with Nicki Minaj on Twitter. Minaj was disappointed when Anaconda wasn't nominated for "Video of the Year" at the MTV Video Music Awards. She suggested that only videos celebrating thin females were put on the ballotto which Taylor replied, "I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot." Where's the girl power in that?

#4 KATE MIDDLETON

The Duchess of Cambridge is poised perfection now, but back in her college days, Kate Middleton wasn't at all worried about being modest when it came to her body. In 2002, the Duchess strut her stuff in a scantily clad look on the runway for a fashion show at St. Andrews University. The ensemble was designed by her friend Charlotte Todd and was comprised of a see-through lace short dress over a black bra and underwear. She killed it on the catwalk and got the attention of her future husband, Prince William, for the first time.

#5 TIM ALLEN

Before Tim Allen was Tim "the Toolman" Taylor, the comedian was serving time behind bars under his birth name, Tim Allen Dick. At 25, Allen was detained at a Michigan airport after he was found in possession of 650 grams of cocaine with the intent to sell the drug. According to Michigan state law, the actor was facing life in jail, but his sentence was shortened after he gave up the names of the people was was working with. He spent two years behind bars for his crime, shortened his name to Tim Allen, and credits comedy for getting him through the dark times in prison.

#6 DANIEL RADCLIFFE

Daniel Radcliffe will forever be Harry Potter in our hearts, but the actor himself was hiding some serious secrets from the fans: the fact that he was drunk while shooting Harry Potter scenes. "I went into work still drunk," he told UK's Heat Magazine. "I can point to many scenes where I'm just gone. Dead behind the eyes." Radcliffe admitted that he was that guy that all his friends used to have to take care of because he would black out so badly that he would wake up unable to recall the last eight hours. The actor has been sober since 2010, but checked himself into rehab in 2014 to kick his cigarette smoking habit.

#7 PAT SAJAK

It's pretty much impossible to think about Wheel of Fortune without thinking about the sweet Pat Sajak and the stunning Vanna White. But it turns out that when Sajak wasn't asking contestants if they'd like to buy a vowel, he was asking the bartender to make him and Vanna another drink. The longtime host admitted in 2012 that when the show first started he and Vanna would booze it up during their two-and-a-half hour dinner breaks. "Vanna and I would ... have two or three or six and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet," he shared with ESPN's Dan Le Batard.
