    Hey Whatever Happened To Jesse Camp?

    Jesse Camp exploded into the public consciousness in 1998 when he won MTV's Wanna Be a VJ contest and started appearing on TRL, eventually even garnering his own show called Lunch With Jesse. The lovable waif was known for his freewheeling, positive attitude and outrageous attire that looked like a mix between Joey Ramone, Steven Tyler and a drag queen. What has been been doing since his heyday on MTV?

    Camp tried to parlay his newfound fame into a rock career by cutting an album under the name Jesse & The 8th Street Kidz. The effort was met with less than laudatory reviews from critics and currently holds the 339,190th spot on the Amazon sales charts.

    After his career as a rock star didn't pan out, Camp headed to Hollywood. He dabbled in acting and even had a walk-on role in the 2002 Britney Spears film Crossroads. After that he reportedly held down oddball jobs like being a clerk at a Feed & Supply company and a telemarketer for a liberal non-profit organization. In an interview with LA Weekly he says he's currently making movies with his sister in Los Angeles and said, "As long as you have a vision, that will create enough positive energy within you to keep going".

    Keep rocking, Jesse.

    Yours truly,
