Dave Holmes is a television personality who gained national attention as the runner-up on MTV’s first “Wanna Be a VJ” contest in 1998. Holmes distinguished himself from other candidates with an encyclopedic knowledge of music trivia. MTV hired Holmes to conduct celebrity interviews and went on to host several other MTV shows, including “120 Minutes”, a “Real World” reunion special, and the popular “Say What? Karaoke” until 2001.
Post-MTV, Holmes co-hosts Court TV’s “Saturday Night Solution” programming block, and FX’s “DVD on TV”. In 2005 he hosted the CBS summer series “Fire Me…Please”.
