Remember this guy?

Jesse Camp shot to fame in 1998 when he auditioned for and won MTV's "Wanna Be a VJ," a reality competition where music lovers vied for a hosting gig on "Total Request Live."

His fame was short-lived, however, as he was replaced by Season 2 winner Thalia DaCosta a year later ... and his runner-up, Dave Holmes, ended up being more popular with both fans and the network in the long run.

He then fell into obscurity, popping up at a few random events through the years and at the big finale of "TRL" in 2008.

But last night, the 34-year-old (yes, he's only 34) returned to the limelight as he hit the red carpet for a "Free the Nipple" fundraiser hosted by Russell Simmons.

Sporting shoulder-length hair, a couple scarves, an all-black outfit and brown cowboy boots, he's definitely tamed his look a little ... but proved that he and his rocker style are still alive. 

Nice to see he's still with us, right?
