Then: Prior to joining the hosts of 'Total Request Live' in 2003, Minnillo was crowned Miss Teen USA in 1997. She went on to work for MTV, hosting 'MTV Hits,' 'TRL' and a couple 'Real World' reunions, until the late 2000s.

Now: She eventually left MTV to focus on her growing role as a correspondent on 'Entertainment Tonight.' Minnillo later co-hosted the model competition show 'True Beauty,' and became a reality TV star in her own right by having her wedding to former boy band member Nick Lachey documented in the television special 'Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding.' Today Vanessa Lachey née Minnillo is happily married, a mother of one, and was most recently a co-host on the wacky obstacle course game show 'Wipeout.'
