“Seven strangers. Picked to live in a house. And have their lives taped. To find out what happens. When people stop being polite and start getting real.”

It’s the tag line of every real world episode since 1992.  From New York to San Diego to Australia, the real world has been to almost every  state in America and even a couple of countries in New York.  After the last season in New Orleans wrapped up this fall, MTV knew they had to go somewhere special for the 25th season.  It had to be somewhere crazy that was guaranteed to have drama, partying, and plenty of drunk moments and MTV knew the perfect place: Las Vegas.

Although the Real World was filmed once before in Las Vegas back in 2002, the success of the first time made the producers want to go for a second time around.

In October of 2010, the seven new cast mates set out for Las Vegas where they are staying in the Hard Rock Hotel penthouse until December in hopes for another successful season. Here is the scoop for some of the newest room mates that America will be watching in 2011 according to

Heather Marter is a 22 year old from Delran, New Jersey who attends Monmouth University with majors in broadcast journalism and is a member of the Delta Phi Epsilon sorority
