Cast profiles for Chicago released; 9/11 may be profiled on the show

Hey! Told you we'd be back! Here's the news on the Real World Chicago! Trust me, it'll be a wild ride unlike the Real World has ever seen.

The cast:

Aneesa: A 19-year-old from Philadelphia. Her father is black and her mother is Jewish. She's described as a lesbian trying to find her place in the world.

Cara: A 22-year-old from Boston. A middle child of upper-middle-class Jewish parents, she's a student from Washington University in St. Louis.

Chris: A 23-year-old from Brockton, Mass. He's a gay recovering alcoholic who's been sober for eight months and regularly attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Kyle: A 22-year-old from Lake Bluff, Ill. An all-American golden boy with good looks and athletic ability. Princeton University student.

Keri: A 21-year-old from New Orleans. A southern blonde with a seemingly limitless circle of friends and acquaintances. She grew up on a farm in the Louisiana and her family is deeply rooted in Louisiana culture and politics.

Theo: A 19-year-old from Riverside, Calif. An African-America son of a pastor who is a ladies man. His move to Chicago is the first time he's lived in a diverse environment.

Tonya: A 21-year-old from Walla Walla, Wash. A blond-haired, blue-eyed woman with a "Baywatch body." Neglected by her mother, she grew up in the foster care system.

While in Chicago, the cast worked at Piece (a restaurant), a beach, and a newspaper. It is unclear why they worked at different places, whether they were given jobs this year or whatnot, so we'll see what BMP will show. Also, the cast was filming during 9/11, so I'm sure you'll see something about that, because the Sears Tower in Chicago was evacuated that day, and there was widespread panic in the city. Also, if you haven't heard... filming began with trouble.

Supposedly, the day the Real Worlders moved in, a shooting occured in front of the loft. Attention was brought to the Real World house because of the Chicago Sun-Times reporting the address of the loft in the newspaper. Protests begun to kick the Real Worlders out. Things happened from there, cast members were offered the chance to leave the show for next season. We'll see what happens, but I'm sure it'll be a great season. More later. Stay tuned.
