Remember the outrageous blond black guy from "Real World: Hawaii"? The cool dude with an easy going attitude and charming personality? If you said yes, then you are recalling Teck Holmes.
America had their eyes glued to Teck's crazy antics and laid back personality and now he’s back on TV hosting Cartoon Network's family game show, "Hole In The Wall," an action-packed show that's an adaptation of the Japanese game show "Nokabe," meaning Brain Wall. In it, contestants compete against moving barriers where they have to position their bodies through styrofoam walls without being thrown into a big pool of water.
The show is in its second incarnation in the U.S. (the first one aired on Fox in 2008) and features two families who battle it out over a half hour to ultimately win the "Hole in the Wall" trophy. It's funny, entertaining and one of the coolest things on cable.
GlobalGrind spoke to Teck, one of the first personalities who made a blond-do look good, besting Chris Brown by a decade, by phone last week and the budding writer shared with us how he came to host the show as well as his run-in with former "Real World: Hawaii" castmates.
Teck was as charming and funny was we'd expect. Here's some of what was said.
"Hole In The Wall" airs Wednesdays at 7:30pm on the Cartoon Network.
