They say "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" -- and Real World introductions are an extra-special case because a camera captures those initial (and sometimes awkward) minutes. A special mention for Ruthie and Teck skinny-dipping mere moments after they arrived at the Real World: Hawaii abode.
Before the latest installment of the long-running series premieres (on March 17, do NOT miss it!), MTV News caught up with new cast members Dean, Kailah and Dione at a press junket and asked them what they thought of each other when they exchanged those early pleasantries and greetings. And with one Sin City roommate, there was a bit of confusion right out of the gate.
"These are the first two I saw, and I thought it was two chicks," Dean reveals in the video above as his MTV cohorts giggle. "Like, I swear. He had his hair down, and he had this spandex on. And I was just like, 'All right, we got two chicks here. This should be interesting to see how they are.'" Two words: Too. Much.
What was running through Kailah's mind when she saw D-squared? Watch the clip to find out, and to see how everyone reacted when they met in Sin City, be sure to catch the premiere episode of Real World: Go Big or Go Home on Thursday, March 17 at 10/9c!
