Top of my class on the Tonight Show

I was watching the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (Episode 3573) a little while ago when I came across a funny surprise. Jay was doing a segment called Celebrity Cloning Experiments Gone Horribly Wrong, or something to that effect, where he showed a picture of a celebrity or famous cartoon and then showed people (unsuspecting visitors to Universal Studios Hollywood) that looked somewhat like them.

The second to last celebrity was Rainn Wilson from The Office fame. To my great astonishment (and amusement) Rainn’s supposed look-alike was none other than David Trotz, the top student of my graduating class at Cal Poly Pomona! He is a really cool guy and he’s super smart. He managed to graduate with a 3.9-something GPA while working full-time and raising a family. He would have graduated with a 4.0 GPA, but some professor wouldn’t give him the A, so he had to settle for an A-. He works for JPL now, where I hear he’s doing really well.

I wonder if he knows that he was on TV?
