This hunky singer was studying sports medicine when he dropped out of college to join the vocal group 98 Degrees. His gamble paid off---even if the outfit wasn't the most successful of the wave of late-'90s boy bands. In 2002, Lachey raised his profile considerably by marrying pop princess Jessica Simpson. Together the couple launched the wildly popular MTV reality series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica in 2003, which featured Lachey suffering his bride's addle-brained antics. Although both their stars were on the rise with acting gigs and a handful of prime-time variety specials, the couple split in 2005, and Lachey began dating TV personality Vanessa Minnillo the following year. Post-Newlyweds, Lachey has kept busy with music-related TV work, hosting the reality competitions The Sing-off and High School Musical: Get in the Picture, as well as coaching competitors on NBC's Clash of the Choirs.

MIXED-ISH - In "mixed-ish," Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)
