Who doesn’t have a favorite “Real World” season? Even if you no longer watch because you’re distracted by psuedo wives and singing competitions, I’m sure if I threw some of the names from this list at you, you could tell me your views on the drama these black folks brought into the house and why you did or didn’t enjoy seeing them on your TV thanks to MTV. This show definitely paved the way for most reality TV, and in the process of growing and getting more popular (or less), we’ve seen a few black folks who were just too interesting to forget. Let’s figure out where they are now, and what they’re looking like. By the way, we did pick our five favorite females from the show back in the day, but this is totally different. AND oh yeah, be prepared to click, per the usual.

Alton Williams

A Real World alumnus from his days on the first Las Vegas installment, Williams was a cutie and kind of a jerk, and he had his share of drama while on the show thanks to relationship triangles and such. In the end, he found himself in a relationship with cast mate Irulan Wilson, with the two staying together for three years and even living in LA together before breaking up in 2005. A popular castmember, Williams later went on to take part in the spin-off challenge, “The Gauntlet 2” (he also was a contestant on the first Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet) on MTV, and with his athletic prowess, actually went on to win the challenge and a whopping $100,000. Since his time on the show, Williams is allegedly in a new relationship, and is also said to be a radio host. There are also rumors that Williams will make an MTV comeback, competing in the upcoming new season of MTV’s “The Challenge.”
