David Robert "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. From the beginning, he distinguished himself from other candidates with an encyclopedic knowledge of music trivia. Despite his loss to Jesse Camp, MTV hired Holmes to conduct celebrity interviews. He went on to host several other MTV shows, including 120 Minutes, a Real World reunion special, and the popular Say What? Karaoke until 2001. His MTV career lasted about two years longer than Camp's. On July 7, 2007, he co-hosted Bravo's coverage of the Live Earth Concerts with Karen Duffy. He also recently appeared on Most Annoying People of 2008 on BBC. Holmes came out as a gay man in Out magazine in 2002. On September 23, 2010, Holmes contributed a video to the "It Gets Better" project, spearheaded by advice columnist and gay rights activist Dan Savage. Currently, he works on-air at FX, and he hosts the daily video podcast A Drink With Dave. He is the host of the Maximum Fun comedy quiz show International Waters. He has also been appearing in commercials for Ford motors.
