This week, Nicki Minaj was a guest judge on the millionth season of America’s Next Top Model. Now don’t get us wrong, we love Nicki, and we even have a soft spot in our hearts for that crazy lady Tyra Banks, but we’re not exactly sure what she was doing there. Aren’t the guest judges usually photographers or people who have anything to do with what’s actually going on in the show, rather than blatant cries for more viewers? Oh, look at us, bemoaning the loss of integrity on ANTM. Silly. Regardless, Nicki’s blonde bobbed cameo got us thinking about the other strange, random or otherwise incongruous guest stars that have popped up on some of our favorite TV shows, whether in integral roles or tiny walk-on parts. Click through for a trip down memory lane of some of the weirdest instances, and let us know if we’ve missed any of your favorite guests in the comments!
Andy Warhol on The Love Boat
On a show famous for its revolving cast of guest stars, not too many choices would surprise us.

He even looks uncomfortable in the press photos.
