In a little over a week we will be watching the premier of the 30th Real World season. It’s hard to believe the show has come so far, and it has provided plenty of memorable moments. At the same time, there have been many roommates you have probably forgotten. Here are 30 of those people who you are unlikely to remember.
Sidenote, this list only accounts for memorability on The Real World. Challenge appearances are not factored in.
30. Scott Real World Brooklyn
Loved to work out. Gave Katelynn $1,500 so she could continue in the Real World house then yelled at her for being too messy.
29. Kaia Real World Hawaii
Emo chick who went to a Janet Jackson concert with a stranger.
28. Irene Real World Los Angeles
Knew she was going to get married in the middle of filming The Real World. Came on the show anyways, then left.
27. Sarah Real World Hollywood
Had her panties stolen. Her feminist boyfriend got mad too.
26. Rachel Real World Back to New York
Used a pole on a NYC subway as a stripper pole but was too punk rock to remove clothing all season.
25. Mike Real World London
Didn’t like London’s culture but loved NASCAR.
24. Christina Real World Paris
Didn’t get along with CT for most of the Paris season, which is all the matters if you were on the Paris season.
23. Ashley C. Real World Ex-Plosion
Really pretty but rarely talking.
22. Sarah Real World Miami
Liked to skate so she filled the house with pre-teen skaters one afternoon.
21. Erika Real World D.C.
Liked to sing and complain, so she left The Real World to sing and complain.
20. Joi Real World Portland
More people wanted to talk to her butt than her face.
19. Joe Real World Miami
Known for having a girlfriend who is taller than him. And chewing gum… lots of gum.
18. Nick Real World Hollywood
Replaced one of the most memorable people from the season. Odds of being remembered were low.
17. Cory Real World San Francisco
Was kind of nervous because Pedro had AIDS but then wasn’t.
16. Sahar Real World New Orleans
People nicknamed her Hollywood because she could sing. The Real World isn’t a singing show though.
15. Zach Real World Key West
Had a cool Jew-fro.
14. Beth A. Real World Los Angeles
A nice, quiet lesbian. She was destined to get overshadowed by the other Beth.
13. Kevin Real World Back to New York
Apparently he had cancer prior to being on the show. MTV likes to use this as his only fun fact.
12. Priscilla Real World San Diego
Was under 21 and production decided to stop letting cast members use fake IDs. So she spent every night at home.
11. Melanie Real World Philadelphia
Best known for bringing scabies into the house.
10. Andre Real World New York
Apparently, the original Real World format was 3 girls and 3 boys, but production upped the total to seven cast members so Andre could be on the show. Then they never gave him camera time.
9. Mohammed Real World San Francisco
Liked spoken word or something like that, but we never got to hear it.
8. Baya Real World Brooklyn
Liked to dance, so when she was presented with the opportunity to join a dance class she declined.
7. Rebecca Real World Seattle
Really white, but sang a song with Sir-Mix-A-Lot. I guess that explains why he’s a one hit wonder.
6. Charlie Real World San Diego
Only was in like 4 episodes and only auditioned for The Real World so he could meet Britney Spears. In his defense, 70% of footage containing him was confiscated by police.
5. Josh Real World D.C.
Was a singer who couldn’t sing and in a committed relation but couldn’t commit.
4. Jay Real World London
Was into theatre. Viewers weren’t.
3. Glen Real World Los Angeles
He’s the first ever Real World replacement and demonstrated why we don’t always need replacements.
2. Lacey Real World Austin
One time her boyfriend mailed her ice cream. It melted.
1. Matt Real World Hawaii
