Today, Mark Wahlberg is a big box office draw, an Oscar nominee, the producer of half of HBO, and the co-lead in this weekend’s bicep-fest Pain & Gain. But follow me, fellow travelers, to a different time and place. The time? The ’90s. The place? The ’90s. Mark Wahlberg’s role as a sensitive American Dreamer/porn star in Boogie Nights ensured that he had a bright future beyond Calvin Klein and the Funky Bunch.

But "Stars in Danger: The High Dive" saw them not only have to tackle a difficult sport, but they had to do it in very tight clothing.

In fact, one of the strongest competitors wasn't supposed to compete at all. When Jennifer "JWoww" Farley was medically unable to dive, her alternate, Alexandra Paul from "Baywatch" stepped in. Paul wound up coming second in both the single and doubles »
