Katie Waissel attempts fame with racy video... before her X Factor break - Katie's You Tube reality tv series

X Factor contestant Katie Waissel has made no secret of her ambition for international fame and now one of her past attempts to grab headlines has been exposed.

The 24-year-old is seen provocatively rolling around in bed and kissing different men in these images from an online reality show called Green Eyed World.

Before becoming the X Factor’s latest drama queen, Katie beat hundreds of wannabes to star in the online series.

The YouTube show followed Katie on film as she dumped her boyfriend and jetted off to New York to try to crack the music business.

Under the name Katie Vogel, she shot a music video for the show, in which she tries her best to look sexy while posing under white sheets in a bedroom scene.

She starred in 14 episodes for the series last year, which was produced by Sprite, and attracted 155,000 views on YouTube. 

In the beginning of the series, which was filmed over seven months in 2009, Katie says: ‘Every one has a story, a dream, a song to sing.  This is mine.’

And in one episode she almost finds love when she admits to falling for her executive director Philipp Schwinger ‘who has had a jump on me’, she says.

She even kisses the film maker on screen and takes him back to her hotel room.

But as that attempt at fame failed, she continued to try her luck on the X Factor.

In between her stints on TV, Katie also tried out a job at the Daily Star’s publishing group.

She took on a role as a sales rep after telling the boss she could ‘transform the company and be the best sales rep of all time’, the Daily Star reported.

But Katie didn’t seem to live up to her claims and only lasted a month in the position.

The tabloid also revealed that while working for the company she would bring her banjo to the office and perform songs at her desk, while writing poetry during working hours.

A former colleague told the newspaper: ‘Katie actually believed she would end up on the covers of the magazines she worked for.

‘So when she actually realised she had to work, she couldn’t cut it.’
