8 Celebrities You May to Run Into In South Dakota

You may not think of South Dakota as the crossroads of celebrity life. That's a good thing, we kind of like to live under the radar here on the upper plains.

But, living in South Dakota we are just a few degrees away from stardom. Not just because the author of the Little House on the Prairie books is from here. Or because every time Tom Brokaw shows up on TV, someone will say, "You know he's from Yankton."

We may not have as much of a chance at a celebrity sighting in South Dakota as we would in Minneapolis, but there are some famous personalities you may run into in the 605.

He has owned land and businesses in and around Deadwood. You never know, you may run into him checking out the City of Presidents in Rapid City. Just don't ask him about drinking his own urine, he's probably sick of talking about that.

Dale Moss is a Brandon Valley High School and SDSU alum who was featured on the ABC TV show The Bachelorette along with playing professional football in the NFL. At last report Moss lived in New York, but you never know, you could see him enjoying some hometown Hy-Chi someday.

Justin Bieber

Hey, remember that one time Justin Bieber posted pictures on Instagram that looked like they were taken in Chamberlin, South Dakota? It was the talk of the state for a day or so in July 2020. Perhaps he'll be back for more pictures with SD's gorgeous natural beauty.
