From Pedro to Eric, Trishelle to Ruthie: The MTV housemate in each season we most loved, loved to hate, or hated that we kinda loved
By Lisa Raphael, Amy Wilkinson | Apr 16, 2008

(EW.com)



ERIC NIES
Season 1: New York
The most ab-ilicious of the original seven strangers, model Eric may have parlayed his post-Real World celebrity — and taut torso — into hosting gigs on MTV (see: The Grind), but we'll always remember the Jersey boy for his sweet flirtation with country bumpkin Julie.



JON BRENNAN
Season 2: Los Angeles
Goody-two shoes doesn't begin to describe the non-drinking, non-sex-having country crooner from Kentucky. Keeping your morals in a RW crib is something few have managed to do, and we give Jon props for his unusual resolve.



PEDRO ZAMORA
Season 3: San Francisco
Snot-spewing bike messenger Puck may have made the most noise, but it was HIV-positive Pedro who left a lasting impression. The AIDS educator, who became a symbol of the growing epidemic, died at the age of 22 — one day after the final episode aired.



JACINDA BARRETT
Season 4: London
Fresh-faced Aussie model Jacinda had us fooled — but not for long. Potty training hijinks with petulant puppy Legend and a naked jaunt down the streets of jolly ol' England, let us know this lady had a knack for drama — long before she became the only RW veteran to build any kind of real acting career.



MELISSA PADRON
Season 5: Miami
Oh, Melissa. Whether by accident or by design (we're leaning toward the latter), the feisty Latina always found herself in the middle of a Miami dustup. From opening an important letter addressed to Dan to playing third wheel in a risqué shower romp, Melissa knew how to instigate a RW-worthy ruckus.

MONTANA McGLYNN
Season 6: Boston
Let's be honest: the Boston cast was a smidge...dull. Yeah, we dug sweet Sean and eccentric Genesis, but Susan Sarandon look-alike Montana is the one we'd like to get a glass of white wine with and discuss post-modern feminism.



IRENE McGEE
Season 7: Seattle
Sure she's the obvious choice, but how could we pick anyone other than Irene? This curly-topped Lyme disease sufferer was at the receiving end of the RW's most infamous ***** slap. Not to mention her poor stuffed puppy is now sleeping with the fishies!



RUTHIE ALCAIDE
Season 8: Hawaii
The record for quickest RW meltdown has got to go to Hawaii's resident boozer Ruthie. Within minutes of arriving at the Honolulu beach house, the Filipina got nekkid, skinny dipped with new roommate Teck, and lost consciousness after a drinking binge. Yay for first impressions!



DANNY ROBERTS
Season 9: New Orleans
A gaggle of googly-eyed gals was left heartbroken after Southern boy Danny revealed his big ''secret.'' Yep, he's gay. But that didn't stop us from picturing ourselves in that steamy hot tub with the New Orleans cutie.



CORAL SMITH & MIKE ''THE MIZ'' MIZANIN
Season 10: Back to New York
Mike and Coral ended up one of Real World's oddest couples. While Coral still may not wrestle (she instead ''f---ing beats b---ches up'') Mike took his RW alter ego ''The Miz'' to the ring and now delivers WWE Smackdowns instead of annoying roommates.

TONYA COOLEY
Season 11: Chicago
Small town Tonya perfected the role of the ignorant blonde who opens her mind. We watched as she passed kidney stones and hooked up on challenges, but this reality TV star will always be remembered for dabbling in Cinemax soft-core porn.



TRISHELLE CANNATELLA
Season 12: Las Vegas
You can't really blame this season's cast for drinking and having sex all the time. Good for us but too bad for Trishelle: What happened in Vegas (three-way Jacuzzi makeout sessions, blackouts, pregnancy scares) was shown on national television.



FRANK ROESSLER
Reunited — The Real World: Las Vegas
On the miniseries reunion of the Las Vegas cast, Frank, once shy and whimpering in Steven's footsteps, turned into a frat boy gone wrong — getting kicked out of the pool, making out with random girls in the hallway, and trashing the apartment.



CHRIS ''C.T'' TAMBURELLO
Season 13: Paris
With a beefy build and a temper to go with it, C.T. introduced true Mass-hole style to gay Paree and subsequent Real World/Road Rules challenges. Always the first to rip off his shirt and start a fight, C.T. stirs up the kind of drama that makes you glad you're not dating him.



ROBIN HIBBARD
Season 14: San Diego
From tending bar at Coyote Ugly to spending a televised night in drunk lockdown to future Real World/Road Rules challenge winner — Robin's life is a fairytale that only reality TV could write. And make better by adding a handful of MTV-cast relationships.

WILLIE HERNANDEZ
Season 15: Philadelphia
Philly had a tame cast, but housemate Willie actually brought something to the table besides the usual ho-hum family history of alcoholism, life-threatening illness, etc. — he was a regular in the kids' series Ghostwriter!



WES BERGMANN
Season 16: Austin
Wes is ''that guy.'' Short of smashing beer cans on his head and talking about his glory days playing high school football, he's the jock you love to hate. And regret sleeping with — just ask former fiancée and roommate Johanna.



JOHN DEVENANZIO
Season 17: Key West
Johnny Bananas was reality TV's perfect party boy, helping us all relive playground flirting tactics. We watched him get drunk and hit on Svetlana. Get drunk and make Paula cry. Get drunk and make Janelle mad...




BROOKE LaBARBERA
Season 18: Denver All that was missing from this roomie's tantrums was head spinning and projectile vomit. She may have been kicked off the Gauntlet after a bisexual tryst with Ev, but we envision her return on VH1's inevitable Celebrity Anger Management in the future.



ISAAC STOUT
Season 19: Sydney
You have to love a roommate that comes to the house equipped with costumes, Barbie dolls, and a case of acid flashbacks. Although legitimately nuts, Isaac was somehow the sanest roommate in Sydney.

BRIANNA TAYLOR
Season 20: Hollywood
With just the right amount of baggage (former exotic dancer) and clips of her beating someone up and saying ''oh, no you didn't!'' on the trailer for Season 20, Brianna already has our vote for MVP of the Hollywood cast.

Reading this thread takes me back. I still can't believe RR has been around as long as it has. I don't watch RR as much anymore, but I soooo love the Challenges. Can't wait to watch new ones!!
