MJ from Nashville is the cute all-American football player. Melanie is the girl who always has the boyfriend, but wants to find her independence. Karamo is a buff guys' guy from Houston. Sarah, the redhead from Tampa, FL likes a sexual relationship without the emotions. Landon from River Falls, Wisconsin, claims to get a little crazy sometimes and he dubs himself as "off the hook." Shavonda from San Diego works at Hooters and is in an interracial relationship. Willie from New York City is gay and hopes to find a hot, fantastic, fabulous, sexy relationship while in Philly. Take these seven completely different people, add cheese steak, a gigantic house, and two hot tubs and you've got the 15th season of The Real World.
MJ and Landon meet first and they are wearing the same pair of shorts and both have curly hair. Too cute. MJ explains he left a girl back home, while Landon just got out of a seven year relationship. When the boys meet up with Shavonda, she notes that it looks like the boys just stepped out of an Abercrombie ad. As the boys get to know Shavonda, they notice she is making it really clear that she has a boyfriend back home.
Meanwhile, Sarah admits her nervousness about the experience to Willie when she meets up with him. Willie tells her that he's currently a personal shopper, but wants to create and direct Broadway shows. Because she seems "mad cool," Willie makes a pack with Sarah that if everyone in the house is lame, he's got her back and she's got his.
Landon, Shavonda and MJ arrive at the house first and cannot believe their new pad. It has a giant tree in the middle of the house for Pete's sake! Sarah and Willie arrive and take a tour of their new palace. Sarah narrates that MJ has one of the best bodies she has ever seen. While these five get their drink on, Karamo and Melanie meet at the top of the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum. When the last two arrive at the house, they, too, are stunned by its magnificence.
Sarah tells her roommates that she likes to walk around naked and within moments she removes her bra underneath her tank top. "Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be sexy," Sarah purrs. Sarah announces that she's had a breast enhancement and invites her roommates to cop a feel, but Landon gets a little nervous and knocks over a painting as he backs away from her breasts.
The first night out, MJ explains that he hasn't hung out with many gay people, but he respects Willie. While at the bar, in a shocking turn of events, guys' guy Karamo comes out to Shavonda. Her jaw drops and she feels burdened by this secret she now must keep.
