* The Trump family? Obviously Donald, the de facto head of the family and 45th President of the United States is the first to come to mind. His daughter Ivanka is a runner-up though, due to being in the spotlight both as a socialite (formerly) and and as a political adviser to Donald (currently). Most can't name the numerous wives he had (except Melania, his current wife), his four other kids (lately Barron has gotten the most publicity), his grandkids, and his other relatives. Another member that's well-known is someone who isn't even a bloodline relative, Jared Kushner (Ivanka's husband).
** The Trump administration team? Obviously it's President Trump again. Other than him (and his family members on the team), the names most people will know are Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of Education Betsy [=DeVos=], Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway, and Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Also, Rick Perry and Ben Carson, although they're less known for their roles in the Trump cabinet than as former Presidential candidates.

* As far as one's concerned, Website/TheEscapist's only contributor is [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee Croshaw]]. Over time, this joke started to hold more and more truth, though; creators like Jim Sterling and Critical Miss have left the site, and as of 2017 Yahtzee is pretty much the ONLY contributor still creating videos for the site. For a good long while the Escapist content calendar had nothing on it except Yahtzee's two ongoing series and the weekly Escapist streams which are often staffed by Yahtzee.

* Deconstructed in ''The Runaways'' (based on fact too). Cherie Curie is pushed as the Face of The Runaways and the other members end up resenting this. Cherie also suffers an emotional breakdown because of all the pressures of being the famous one (especially since she's only sixteen) and that's why she chooses to leave the band. As Joan Jett puts it...

* The Kardashians? Kim's the one that everyone knows. After that comes the other Kardashian sisters, then the Jenner sisters, then the parents, and finally the sons. As of 2015, Kendall and Kylie have surged ahead of Kourtney and Khloe in fame (thanks to the millennial generation), but are nowhere close to dethroning Kim. Also, as of 2014, you can throw Kim's husband Music/KanyeWest into the mix. And Bruce's stock has certainly risen greatly now that he became Caitlyn.
