Morning Man Classic: Eric Neis!
I sure do and find it hard to believe that Eric turns 49 today!
Eric was working as a model during the show’s filming, and was sometimes shown on photo shoots. He was known for his impressive physique, often appearing shirtless in episodes of the show. After his exposure on The Real World, he went on to host the MTV series The Grind, which featured a studio audience dancing to popular dance tracks. He has also hosted and participated in a number of MTV’s Real World/Road Rules Challenges. He was featured on VH1′s 2008 reality TV series, Confessions of a Teen Idol, in which former teen idols attempt to revitalize their entertainment careers
Eric also appeared on a number of dance workout videos and fitness product promotions. As each workout video progressed, while the other participants remained fully clothed, Nies invariably removed layers of clothing until bare chested.
