Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

The former WWE wrestler-turned-actor appeared on the show as himself in season 2, episode 17. If you’re wondering why he looked so fabulous, it’s because Miley and her BFF, Lilly (Emily Osment) made a deal with a tabloid to get a photo of him post-makeover.

John Cena

The professional wrestler also had a guest-starring role as himself on the show. He appeared in season 4, episode 7, and showed Miley’s brother Jackson (Jason Earles) some wrestling moves … in a hallucination.

The Jonas Brothers

It wouldn’t be a Disney Channel show in the early 2000s if The Jonas Brothers didn’t show up. They appeared in season 2, episode 16, eventually collaborating with Hannah Montana on the song, “We Got the Party.”

In real life, Cyrus and Nick Jonas dated in 2006 and she famously wrote her song “7 Things I Hate About You” about him after they broke up the following year.

Corbin Bleu

The High School Musical star made two appearances on the show: the first on the series premiere as one of Miley’s crushes, and the second during season 2, when he won an auction to have dinner with Hannah Montana. You can see the dilemma!
