Small-time Chinese actress Gan Lulu, 26, has been making the headlines after her mother made a video of her coming out naked from the shower.
The video went viral and made her an instant celebrity.
She went on to earn herself a spot in most Top 10 lists compiled by various media platforms in China to mark the hottest news in 2011.
Add to that the many magazine covers she has graced and her slightly meatier roles in China-made films and TV dramas.
Her earnings have reportedly increased with more advertising jobs and event appearances.
Just last month, she caused a frenzy when she made an appearance at the Nanning-Asean International Auto Show in Nanning City.
Back here in Singapore, 24-year-old local blogger Hong Qiuting, aka Qiu Qiu, openly seeked sponsorship for her boob job because she was insecure about her flat chest.
That stunt earned her a free breast-filling treatment in December 2010.
The process was even filmed and posted online.
