Once upon a time, The Real World was an interesting show that dealt with important issues like AIDS, abortion, gay rights, and addiction. In 1994, bicycle messenger David “Puck” Rainey made reality TV history by epically pissing off his roommates on The Real World: San Francisco.
At best, Puck did things like eat peanut butter out of the jar with his fingers after picking his nose. At worst, he was a homophobic bully who constantly belittled HIV-positive housemate Pedro Zamora. Puck has been arrested a number of times since the show ended and faced charges including domestic violent, DUI, and stalking. Yikes! Maybe another 15 minutes of fame is just what he needs—audiences love a reformed bad boy.
