These Are The 'Real World' Roommates Who Will 'Go Big Or Go Home'

Get to really know the Las Vegas-based cast.

"Real World" is known for pushing cast members outside of their comfort zone -- living with strangers, in a new city, is no easy feat -- but the crop of MTV folks featured on the program's 31st season will be tested like never before. In short, if a housemate is unable to complete a challenging group or individual mission -- which will be proposed to them right out of the gate -- they'll be sent packing and a replacement will arrive to take their spot in Sin City.

So who will be participating in this once-in-a-lifetime "go big or go home" twist? Read more about the seven folks below, share your thoughts on the guys and gals who will "stop being polite" in the comments section and be sure to catch the premiere on Thursday, March 17 at 10/9c!

    This charming hunk grew up in Ghana, Africa but moved to Las Vegas with his father at the age of five. As an adult, he attended the University of Nevada, Reno, where he wooed sorority girls with his humor and pretty-boy looks -- until meeting his future ex-wife. Now Dean is going through a divorce and looking for a fresh start in the "Real World" -- and he's more than ready to cut loose in Vegas.

    Crediting her Puerto Rican heritage for her notable eyebrows, impressive derriere and loud, unpredictable personality, Kailah is unafraid of the casual hookup -- and warns guys not to fall in love with her because of her sexual prowess. A mean girl in high school, she was voted “Gossip Queen” by her peers and admits that she had very few close acquaintances due to her strong charisma. To this day, Kailah has trouble maintaining friendships and roommates -- but while living in the "Real World" house, she hopes to finally grow past her drama queen phase.

    This Boston-bred beauty -- who has has a fascination with whipped cream and can sexualize any situation -- isn't afraid to speak her mind and, as a result, she's often viewed as aggressive. Adopted as a baby, the aspiring singer/songwriter wants to find and hopefully meet her biological mom (who may live in either Vegas or California) -- but that desire is also her biggest fear: She's worried about what she'll find if she does indeed go down that road.

    Don’t let this Southern bombshell's looks fool you -- she knows how to get down and dirty (and that includes shooting guns in her bikini). The feisty tomboy was raised by her deer-hunting Mormon father until she moved in with her mother at the age of 15 -- and she's very vocal about her beliefs and the traditions she was taught at a young age. "Real World" will be a chance for Jenna to explore life, cultures and beliefs outside of her country town of Easley, South Carolina -- and she's no doubt the only roommate with a pet pig back home.

    This former Salt Lake City Mormon is now a liberal New York City hipster: Chris' disassociation from the Mormon Church and recent acceptance of his pansexuality have fueled his fight against religious discrimination, made him an advocate for LGBTQ rights, and put him at odds with his conservative family. He's now on a journey to find his true self and enter a new chapter of life where he refuses to say “no” to anything -- and what better place to put that into practice than in the "Real World" house?

    Better known as “Jungle Boy,” this adrenaline junkie prides himself on living on the edge without the burden of responsibility. Having fully embraced the Peter Pan lifestyle of never growing up, his biggest fear is having a 9-5 job -- or having to work at all, for that matter. As for romance, Dione would much rather find women who will fall for his charm and boyish personality than get into anything serious. His female roommates are sure to lust over him, but only time will tell if they can handle his crazy, over-energized antics.
