I read (online, so you know it's true!) that former WWE Tough Enough winner, Maven, was also in that cast.

They couldn't find a rapper this time? Were Tone Loc and Coolio BOTH unavailable?

Alexis Arquette, had no idea who this was... the only thing I recognize herm from is Wedding Singer. Does s/he even count as a D-list celebrity? Again, was RuPaul really THAT busy nowadays?

Is Tawny still hot or has she gone the way of Brigitte? -Shudder-

I've never heard of Andrea Lowell, but I googled her pic, she's hot... so okay.

Former WWE Wrestler To Appear On "The Surreal Life"

Story posted by Brian Cantor on September 21, 2005

According to MavenHuffman.com, the former WWE superstar has been tapped to appear on the next season of VH1's "The Surreal Life." The update Wednesday claims Maven is presently in California filming the show.

The official billing was that Maven would be one of the "reality show hunks" that fellow castmembers would get to choose as a seventh house guest. The cast includes Sherman Helmsely (The Jeffersons), Tawny Kitaen (Bachelor Party, Here I Go Again video), Steve Harwell (Smash Mouth), CC Deville (Poison), Andrea Lowell (Playboy) and Alexis Arquette (The Wedding Singer). The Brady Bunch's Florence Henderson will be appearing in a special guest role on the show.

There had been rumors that Maven - after his release from WWE - was looking to break into the entertainment business. This appears to be the first stage in said transition.

Tawny Kitaen is the perfect Surreal Life castmember. She's famous for exactly one thing.

I always thought Maven had a lot of potential. Hopefully if he shows some sort of personality, WWE will consider rehiring him.

Judging from "her" picture, 'herm' isn't far off.

This is a lousy cast. Only Sherman Helmsley holds any fascination for me. It might be the first season I skip. This has been a long, slow slide from a shockingly good show to total crap.
