These sentences came from a text book I'm using:
Being on TV is the only thing that matters to some people (question from the text book).
The only thing that matters to some people is being on TV (answer from the text book).
Since "What" has a meaning similar to, "the thing(s) which" as a relative pronoun, I have made these two sentences.
1.Being on TV is what only matters to some people.
2.What only matters to some people is being on TV.
Are these sentences correct, and if not, why not?

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I find them wrong too. Syntactically okay, but in terms of meaning, unnatural. Maybe what is meant is "Being on TV is what matters to some people -- the only thing that matters."
