Remember when we let that dude Jesse Camp into our home back in the late 90’s? We’d come home from school, turn on TRL to ideally get a glimpse of Britney Spears’ side boob, and this Big Bird would be speaking to us with that signature California stoner/lifelong smoker voice. I gotta admit, I was kind of into his schtick, even though his hair looked like he was just struck by lightning. He was wearing skinny jeans before skinny jeans were cool. I don’t know whether to love him or hate him for that.
Jesse bested over 5,000 contestants to win MTV’s Wanna Be A VJ competition, including MTV staple Dave Holmes. He would go on to host TRL for a year and a half before disappearing from the public eye almost entirely. Welp, Jesse got into the drugs, but at age 36, he now claims he’s been sober for almost 7 years.
From the looks of it, he looks decently healthy (or more than I thought he would), and he’s let his hair fall. A true sign of maturity.
