Real World Where Are They Now

We don't drink. We don't do drugs. But we do have an addiction: reality TV. And we're not talking about your fad reality shows, like "Tool Academy" or "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila." We're talking about the hard-core, old school, relentless mother-of-all-reality dramas: MTV's "The Real World." That said, we have to admit we just haven't been getting the same buzz off the show in the last few years. Is it that 22 seasons about seven strangers... picked to live in a house... and have their lives taped just gets too redundant or (gasp) are we just getting to old to connect to an 18-year-old's breakup rants? No, that couldn't be it. Regardless, it makes us long for the rivalry of Puck and Pedro; the drama of Kevin and Julie; and the budding romance of Pam and Judd. As the latest season comes to a close, we decided to see what our favorite "Real World" cast members from past years are doing now.
