[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] {{celebrity edition}}s of ''Series/{{Survivor}}'', although such a show would presumably play this trope to the hilt (and indeed, there is a show that has just such a premise; see below).

* On ''Series/TheStrainTVSeries'', one of the survivors of the outbreak on the plane is a rock star named Gabriel Bolivar (an {{Expy}} for Music/MarilynManson). Later subverted when it turns out the "survivors" are infected with the same contagion that killed the other passengers and caused them to rise as vampires. Then double subverted when he's the last of those "survivors" to remain [[spoiler:until The Master possesses his body, essentially killing him in the process.]]

** Before the Cylon attacks, Gaius Baltar was also a well-known scientist and proponent of re-developing advanced computer technology. It is Baltar's celebrity status that causes Helo to give up his seat on the Raptor to him, stating that if humanity was going to survive, it would need smarter people them himself. Ironically, Baltar was an unwitting pawn of the Cylons, causing most of the civilization to be destroyed.

* In ''TheTrueMeaningOfSmekday,'' invading aliens force all the citizens of America onto a "reservation" comprised of the entire state of Arizona. Hilariously, celebrity rags are still being passed around despite uneventful headlines (FILM STARS CONTINUE TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO MAKE MOVIE). Actors now live in "New Hollywood" (formerly Scottsdale), while seventy percent of the music industry lives in Sedona and are planning their sixth benefit concert to [[CaptainObvious raise awareness of the alien invasion]]. Steven Spielberg gets a brief mention.

* Discussed in ''Literature/LeftBehind''. Shortly after [[CaughtUpInTheRapture the Rapture]], [[TheHero Buck]], while traveling to New York City, gets dropped off in Easton, Pennsylvania, by [[ThePilot Ken]], who remarks that the city is the hometown of former heavyweight champion Larry Holmes. Ken jokes that, if Holmes hadn't disappeared as well, he'd probably go after whoever was taking people (at the time, Ken believed the raptured people had been kidnapped or [[AlienAbduction abducted]]).
