Gandee died doing what made him famous: careening through huge mudholes in his SUV, taking chances most others wont, living free and reckless in front of reality-show TV cameras. His death further blurs the line between entertainment and real life in an age where fame is easier than ever to attain. (Photo by Amy Sussman/Invision/AP, file)
