"The Real World" Stars -- Then & Now!

0628_real_launch

If you were a fan of "The Real World" growing up, prepare to feel really old -- because the show enters its 28th season tonight!

This time around, the eight strangers (and one dog!) will be living in a swanky home in Portland.

But whatever happened to that stars of the original New York cast ... or fan favorites like San Francisco, Seattle and New Orleans?

Well, it's a mixed bag.

The show's alums have gone on to act, launch music careers, go into politics, marry celebrities, competed in numerous "Challenges" or just gone on to lead plain old normal lives.

Sadly, Pedro Zamora from San Francisco passed away after a battle with AIDS in 1994, when he was just 22. San Diego star Frankie Abernathy, who struggled with cystic fibrosis, also passed away in 2007.

Check out the gallery above to see what happened to the rest of your favorite reality stars from the show's first 14 seasons ... plus, see what they look like now!

Which season was your favorite?
