As the title suggests, this is a person who feels that even if you do something amazing, it doesn't count unless there are witnesses.

Who cares if you were the first person to climb Mount Everest without supplies, blindfolded with your arms tied behind your back? If you did so without anybody around, it doesn't count. Apparently, personally knowing that YOU made the climb doesn't really matter; to the Audience Addict, there MUST be at least one witness for it to be considered an accomplishment. (NOTE: This is just an example, folks; there can be other things that aren't as amazing that could be done).

Obviously, this trope needs examples. Rolling Updates will occur if possible.
