Reality TV show: The Real World: Back to New York (2001)

You might remember Mike Mizanin as the guy who couldn't stop putting his foot in his mouth with the backwards racial remarks, getting him into numerous fights with fellow castmember Coral Smith, who had no tolerance for that nonsense.

These days, his showdowns take place within a wrestling ring. "The Miz," which he used to jokingly refer to his wrestler alter ego, turned out to be the name that millions would come to know him by after he went on to sign a contract with  WWE, for which he's been competing within and hosting matches since 2003.
