Who are those six people in that one Onion section?

You know the fake man-on-the-street quotes
that the Onion
has been doing every week for years? There are six different people's photos they've used forever
, and I would like to know more.

Is there any story behind them?
Were they Onion employees? Were they actors? Were they just stock photos? Were they just folks they found on the street in the early days of the Onion online?
Does anyone know who these people are, does anyone ever see one of them randomly in the street, and have they ever made public statements in reference to being immortalized in this fashion?
I have posed several different questions above, but any kind of detail would be quite fascinating after staring at these people's mugs for so many years.
