It would still be five years until The Bachelor premiered.
Kylie Jenner wasn’t alive yet… and she’s about to turn 20.
There weren’t any Bring It On movies yet… now there have been five.

The first “Now! That’s What I Call Music” wouldn’t come out for another YEAR AND A HALF.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston hadn’t even started dating yet.
And Reese Witherspoon wouldn’t start dating Ryan Phillippe for more than a year.

And Michelle Kwan had yet to skate in ANY Olympic Games.
