STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek - MTV's REAL WORLD's 27th Season Premiering 6/27
Laura, 23 - Omaha, NE:
Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, this corn-fed cutie got an unusual present from her adoptive parents when she was born: a shotgun. Extremely sporty and outdoorsy, Laura's passion is leading her towards a career as a wilderness guide. Though Laura grew up in a strict household full of antiques and needlepoint, this ugly-duckling turned beautiful swan is anything but a conservative country girl. After breaking up with her ex-boyfriend, Laura has really let her inner party girl fly free. As a former cheerleader, she now does a standing backflip while drinking to test how drunk she is. In high school, Laura was booed out of the men's locker room for wanting to join the football team but turned that setback into a success by eventually becoming a first string quarterback in the Lingerie Football League. She is also a master flirt who has high standards for the men in her life. That doesn't mean that Laura dates less frequently... she's just a pro at finding hot guys. Maybe she'll put her expertise to use in The Real World house with Trey. Problem is--- Laura has a reputation for falling fast and hard. Will history repeat itself?
Trey, 23 - Baltimore, MD:
Born in a blue collar section of Baltimore - Trey had a tough childhood. His drug addict father was in and out of jail for much of Trey's life on charges related to murder, leaving Trey to be raised by his mother and grandmother, to whom he's incredibly close. He remembers fondly watching soap operas with his mother, which to this day has remained a guilty pleasure and may even spark a potential career as a soap actor. He had once hoped to erase his father's legacy by pursuing a career in law enforcement, but those dreams were erased when he got caught selling prescription drugs to his football teammates. This former star athlete with an aggressive temper and "old school" values is actively working on his constant inner conflict and becoming a better man. He credits his sessions with a life coach for motivating him to turn things around. With his reputation as a bit of a "man whore", Trey is also struggling to change his ways so he can find the right woman. He arrives in St. Thomas with a girl back home, but is the relationship strong enough to withstand temptation?
Brandon, 24 - Quincy, MA:
With his tattoos and gauged ears, Brandon does not look like your typical Real Worlder. Growing up in Boston's infamous "Southie" neighborhood, he has had to steal and hustle to survive on those streets. Right now, he is homeless and couch-surfing. Since graduating high school, he has worked day and night in order to support his mother and his younger sister Savannah - the light of his life. Though he's currently doing electrical and construction work, Brandon's dream is to leave all that in the dust and become a music journalist. He's extremely open about his past and often comes on very strong, very quickly. He typically goes for tattooed punk girls with indie sensibilities, but that doesn't mean he is averse to challenging himself with a preppy girl every once in a while. That time may have come because it looks like Laura might have caught his eye in St. Thomas and he certainly won't be shy to express his affections. Brandon was a virgin until he was 19 but after a particularly heart-wrenching breakup with his first love, he went on to a year of promiscuity and hard partying. He is now trying to change his ways. Brandon sees The Real World as his opportunity to get out of his town and have a shot at a normal life. Will he be able to stay on the straight and narrow path while in St. Thomas or will he succumb to his old wild ways?
