Then: Tecumshea “Teck” Holmes’ career with MTV began as a member of the cast of ‘The Real World: Hawaii’ in 1999. He grabbed audience attention with his party animal antics and his stylish-for-the-time dyed blonde hair. Memorably, this included stripping down and skinny-dipping on the show’s first episode. Once the reality show wrapped, Holmes was hired to host MTV’s ‘Direct Effect,’ which counted down the week’s five most requested rap and R&B music videos.

Now: Holmes forged a path as an actor as well, earning roles in comedies like ‘Van Wilder,’ and the Katie Holmes (no relation) vehicle ‘First Daughter.’ His popularity peaked in the mid-2000s, but he still manages the occasional acting gig. In 2010, he began hosting Cartoon Network’s game show ‘Hole in the Wall.‘ Most recently, Holmes appeared in the 2012 romance ‘Save Me from Love.’
