Real World season one cast: where are they now?

Impossible as it is to believe, The Real World‘s first season aired 19 years ago. And while several of its cast members stayed in the spotlight for some time–Eric Nies, ahem–others have virtually, and perhaps smartly, disappeared.

Fox News’ Fox 411 has a slideshow that checks in with each cast member, although not all of the cast members granted interviews.

What they are doing ranges from Kevin’s runs for office to Eric’s “spiritual journey” (he says he’s “been living like a nomad, the earth is my home”). Julie runs a restaurant in Alabama, and Norm lives in L.A., while Andre, Becky, and Heather are all working on their own music.
