David "Puck" Rainey (born July 18, 1968 in Alameda County, California, United States) appeared on The Real World: San Francisco in 1994. A bicycle messenger during the show's shooting, he became notorious for becoming only the second Real World cast member to be evicted from the house, due to his increasingly disruptive antics. Rainey's torso is heavily tattooed, and on The Real World he accompanied fellow cast member Rachel Campos to a San Francisco tattoo parlor because she wanted to "break out" of her conservative image and get a tattoo.
It is worth noting that there is much disagreement within the San Francisco messenger community about whether Rainey ever actually held a job as a bicycle messenger. Some, such as Yini Yohans in her editorial in the September 11, 2000 edition of the San Francisco Call, concede that Puck "was a messenger for milliseconds," meaning that he was one of numerous young people to briefly work in the industry, but not adopted by the somewhat cliquish community. No one interviewed claimed that Puck was a bicycle messenger, in the sense that he was deserving of the ersatz icon status that his MTV fame has earned him within popular culture.
Rainey has appeared in numerous TV commercials, on the show MTV Cribs, and the Battle of the Sexes. He also had a small appearance in Eminem's video for "Without Me." He is now a photographer, manages a motorcycle shop in downtown Los Angeles, and also runs a custom granite business in Fremont, California.
Puck and his wife, Betty, were married in 2002 and have two sons, Bogart (born 2002) and Rocco (born 2006). Puck was featured in People magazine on August 15, 2006, covering a story about his second son Rocco.
It is said that Rainey was the inspiration for the character Brock Hudson in the movie She's All That (played by Matthew Lillard), because of that character's antisocial antics and his dismissal from The Real World.
