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, shown here in 2003, works on-air at FX and currently hosts a podcast called “A Drink with Dave.” He has also been seen in commercials for Ford. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Kevin Winter, Getty Images)
