* ''Series/TheGenius'': Lim Yo-hwan in season 2. He managed to lose every single one of the main matches and still got to the finals with proud zero in garnet counter.

* Megan from SyFy's special effects makeup competition ''[[Series/FaceOff Face Off]]'' was an abysmal, egotistical competitor, consistently on the chopping block for her poor performance while showing active hostility toward anyone who badmouthed her, making excuses for her lack of skill, and often deferring to her partner for the bulk of the work on team challenges. Yet somehow, she managed to escape elimination...until the second to last episode, where the judges finally wised up and kicked her out on the spot. Even more shocking, while the judges seemed to accept her excuses up until that point, her last performance in the last challenge so disgusted them, they forewent conferring with the challenge winner first (a formality they usually indulged in, for the rest of the series).

* A notable example was in the first season of Sweden's version of ''DancingWithTheStars''. The line up included a comedian who wasn't that good to begin with, and who got sick of the show and wanted to be sent home after a while. The viewers wouldn't have it however, and he stayed on the show, doing increasingly bad performances to the point where he made one ''sitting down''.
* WWE's fourth season of NXT had Johnny Curtis, who WON as one of these. A combination of immunity won in the right weeks and the most popular rookie Derrick Bateman being eliminated due to injury in the final three, which led to him being a face in the finals against a heel Brodus Clay (meaning he'd automatically take home the fan poll) led to him winning.

* ''WhoWantsToBeASuperhero'' got quite a few of these. How Fat Mama made it as far as she did is still unknown. Hyperstrike in the second season, despite being a less-charismatic version of Feedback from the first season, somehow made the final three (in part because Parthenon blew it on a SecretTestOfCharacter).

* Gabby West in season 2 of ''Series/ScreamQueens''. She actually gave very good performances... that is, when she wasn't zoning out on set, making huge technical mistakes and not listening to Tim Sullivan's instructions. As a result, she frequently found herself up for elimination and only staying on because one of her competitors screwed up even worse than she did that week. Since the prize for winning was a role in ''Film/Saw3D'', this may have been why her part wound up consisting of her doing nothing but screaming before [[YourHeadASplode getting splattered underneath a muscle car]]. (For comparison, season 1 winner Tanedra Howard, one of that season's most consistently good contestants, actually got a fairly sizable role, returning for the sequel.)
