It's kind of fun to Google these contestants and see what they're up to now. A quick look informs us that Jonathan Gresty now works as a translator in Slovakia. Good for him, good for him.

I often Google these people too, but from what I understand your commitment to stalking far exceeds mine.

You're only interested in who's dead. I want to see who is LIVING.
