Teck Homles as host for Hole in the WallIf you're an avid watcher of MTV's "Real World," and have been watching from the beginning, you probably remember Teck Holmes from the show's eight season in Hawaii from 1999.

He was one of the season's most crazy, fun and outrageous cast members.

Since then, Teck has been doing the acting thing, landing recurring and guest roles on different TV series, and even on commercials. He's even done a couple movies, including his independently produced "Nobody Smiling".

Most recently, Teck has been tapped as the host of an upcoming game show on the Cartoon Network called "Hole in the Wall," set to debut next Wednesday (October 6).

The new show is a "twisted" half-hour game show featuring two teams of families in competition as they face down a series of moving walls with ever-changing cut-out shapes.

On the show, "contortion is key as competitors must position their bodies in any way possible to clear the walls and avoid being thrust into a pool of water -- all before a live-audience," according to a press release.

As each contestant successfully face down each wall, the patterns become more and more challenging.

Apparently, the game show ran on FOX from 2008 to 2009, and was an adaptation of the Japanese game Nōkabe, which means "Brain Wall" and nicknamed by YouTube fans as "Human Tetris"). But, was pulled back in May 2009.

Now, it will return next Wednesday, October 6 at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT).

In addition to playing host on the show, Teck will be a co-star in the upcoming film "Douglass U" alongside Danity Kane's D. Woods, as well as a new Bud Light commercial currently airing.
