Now:

Kirsten Dunst continued her teen star success with Bring It On and Get Over It. Her next major role was as Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-Man trilogy. Since then, she’s taken on more serious roles, as in Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia.

10. Now:

Now:

Kirstie Alley took bit roles after her series Veronica’s Closet ended in 2000. She struggled with drug abuse and weight problems, the latter of which she eventually turned into a sitcom Fat Actress. She has appeared on Dancing With the Stars twice.

11. Mindy Sterling (Iris)

Iris never seemed quite as evil as Gladys, but she was incompetent enough to let the pageant get hijacked by the Leeman family.

12. Now:

Now:

Still best known for her role as Frau Farbissina in the Austin Powers series, Mindy Sterling has taken on a slew of comedic films and TV shows. She has also done a lot of voice acting, including in Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra.

Leslie was the most sexually active of all the pageant contestants — and a little bit pregnant, but don’t tell her boyfriend.

14. Now:

Now:

Drop Dead Gorgeous was Amy Adams’ screen debut, but she didn’t blow up until 2005’s indie hit Junebug. Since then, she has become a major star, starring in the films Enchanted, Julie & Julia, and Doubt. She has been nominated for four Academy Awards, and is playing Lois Lane in the upcoming Man of Steel.

Lisa wasn’t typical pageant material, but then, her parents only had her because her brother needed a new kidney.

16. Now:

Now:

Brittany Murphy died in 2009 from complications of pneumonia, anemia, and the combination of several drugs in her system. Prior to that, she received acclaim for her roles in films like Girl, Interrupted and 8 Mile. She was also beginning a career as a romantic comedy lead.

17. Shannon Nelson (Tess Weinhaus)

Shannon Nelson (Tess Weinhaus)

Poor Tess was incredibly accident prone and not very good at anything, though she did at least appreciate a giant ball of twine.

18. Now:

Now:

Shannon Nelson has appeared in several indie productions, some of which she has also produced. Her latest project is Alice and the Monster — she plays the title role. (That would be Alice, not the monster.)

Now:

Sarah Stewart has also mostly steered clear of acting. Her IMDb credits include one short film and one TV episode.

24. Now:

Now:

Alexandra Holden is well remembered for her stint as Ross’ student girlfriend on the sixth season of Friends, but she’s kept busy with film and television work. Most recently, she was in this year’s Sundance film In a World.

NOTE: Brooke Elise Bushman (Tammy Curry) and Tara Redepenning (Molly Howard) seem to have disappeared from the internet. We can only assume they were taken out by the competition.
