MTV’s ‘Real World’: 10 Most Annoying Cast Members
MTV’s Real World is one of the first of the onslaught of reality television programs we have become accustomed to after first airing back in 1992. It now stands as MTV longest-running program and unsurprisingly is also one of the longest-running reality series in history. There have been an incredible 30 seasons as well as several equally interesting and dramatic spinoff shows including The Challenge and Road Rules. After 30 seasons with seven or eight cast members living together and getting “real” there is a large group of both liked and hated people who have appeared on the show. Fans know there seems to be a typical group they try to put together, which means there is always that one or maybe two people who get under the skin of not only their housemates but the viewers at home. With so many seasons, the most recent cast members stick out most vividly so, while there are a lot of annoying participants from the early years, there are a lot of recent ones on this list. Here are the 10 most annoying contestants on the Real World.
10. Jessica McCain — Portland
In terms of annoying and downright unlikeable cast members, Jessica McCain from the Real World: Portland season doesn’t go that far, but only because she just isn’t interesting. She was, however, very annoying after coming into the house thinking she is a leader and proceeding to try to be a dominant personality, when really she just wasn’t. It became clear very quickly she is very insecure and her interjecting in conflicts trying to talk it out usually only made them worse. It got tiring watching Jessica persist with a “better than you” attitude and create drama when there was none there, especially when more did not need to be added with people like Jordan and Nia also living in the house. She tried really hard to have the attention on her, but only made viewers realize how crazy she really is because when the cameras were focused on her she was obsessing over a week long relationship or buying herself a virginity ring when it didn’t work out.
9. Brandon Kane — St. Thomas
All in all, St. Thomas was a pretty fun group, that is aside from the unbelievably frustrating and annoying Brandon Kane. While there are always really nice houses for the casts to live in, St. Thomas was particularly amazing, meaning there really shouldn’t have been much to be annoying or whine about; however, Brandon managed it. Almost immediately, he began to position himself as a victim after he felt excluded because he isn’t athletic like the other guys, had a rough childhood and because Laura went for Trey instead of him. It didn’t take long before his “I’m a tough guy” but “woe is me” story became annoying and repetitive, and it took way too long to have him kicked off which happened in episode 11 after he failed a drug test.
