It is not uncommon for celebrities to use their fame to promote a product with their name on it. The recent trend seems to see reality TV stars promoting products to help with weight-loss and to improve physical appearance. But do they actually work? Or is it just clever marketing by the companies behind the products?
Here we will look at some recent endorsements by members of MTV’s Geordie Shore. Love them or hate them, you can’t deny their popularity amongst a certain section of the population and it appears that their following on social media has really helped to sell their own products in huge quantities. Geordie Shore weight loss products have been flying off the shelves. But are they all they are cracked up to be? We will look at some of the responses by their customers to see whether or not people think they really work or are just a waste of time…
There is no denying that Holly Hagan has changed a lot since she first appeared on Geordie Shore.
Because of this, she has released a book, Holly Hagan’s 12 Week Body Bible, to help people achieve the results she has. It contains fitness routines as well as details of the diet that supposedly helped her lose so much weight. Many doubt whether or not 12 weeks is actually long enough to make such a physical transformation but a lot of her customers seem happy with their purchase of the book…

To be fair, the combination of a healthy, balanced diet with regular exercise is the best (and safest way to lose weight) so it is no surprise that people have seen results after reading this book. If an endorsement from a well-known TV personality is what it takes for some people to get started on the road to a healthier lifestyle, who are we to complain?

Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby was quick to release her own weight-loss product after winning the 2013 series of Celebrity Big Brother. The increased media attention given to her following the show appeared to be the perfect catalyst to launch a product with her name attached to it.
Her DVD, Charlotte Crosby’s 3 Minute Belly Blitz [DVD]  again raised questions about whether or not significant results can be achieved from what appears to be a relatively short exercise routine. Some argued that her own results would have been achieved from extensive training sessions with qualified fitness professionals and that her DVD would not achieve the results that she has shown. Many have argued that the workouts on the DVD are a lot more intensive than the title suggests.
But what do the people who bought the DVD think?
Again it seems like Charlotte has a lot of happy customers and apparently she has sold over 250,000 copies of her DVD so far. It’s difficult to argue about its effectiveness if people are leaving feedback like this.

Vicky Pattison was the first Geordie Shore girl to release a weight-loss product of any kind. Her DVD, Vicky Pattison’s 7 Day Slim [DVD] was released at the end of 2013 and its success probably encouraged the other members of Geordie Shore to follow in her footsteps.
Again, there is no denying the impressive results she has achieved. But was it down to the routines shown on her DVD or was it a result of a lot more intensive (and expensive) training over a longer period of time?
Some more happy customers. One even compares this DVD with Charlotte’s, suggesting that Vicky’s is much more effective.

It is hard to argue with comments like this left on social media. Social media allows people to publicly praise or criticise items they purchase, but it seems like all three of these weight-loss products endorsed by the Geordie Shore girls have gone down well with people who bought them.
Perhaps the titles of these products seem too good to be true but it appears that the workouts involved are often more strenuous than their name would suggest.
