Then: Camp (above, left) rocketed to fame as the winner of MTV’s first “Wanna Be a VJ” contest in 1998. He served as intermittent host of “TRL” for about a year before being given the boot.
Now: Following his stint at MTV, Camp attempted to launch a career as a rock musician. Under the name Jesse & The 8th Street Kidz, he released one album that All Music Guide called “unbearable.” He has spent the last few years working as a clerk at a pet supply store and a telemarketer for a non-profit liberal organization. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Nick Ut/AP)
