Then: The runner-up on MTV’s first “Wanna Be a VJ” contest in 1998, Holmes ultimately proved to be far more successful and popular than the show’s winner, Jesse Camp. He was immediately hired following the contest and went on to host “120 Minutes,” a “Real World” reunion special and, perhaps most memorably, the “Say What? Karaoke” show through 2001.
Now: Holmes works on-air at FX and currently hosts a podcast called “A Drink with Dave.” He also works behind the scenes on television — he was the casting director for the Fox series "Ben & Kate." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: MTV, Craig Barritt/Getty Images)
