The Real World Brooklyn Cast Gets Transgendered

The cast of The Real World Brooklyn looks to differentiate itself from the previous twenty seasons on MTV by having the first transgender cast member.

The cast's head shot compilation was posted on Vevmo and combined with my sources indicate the naming of the cast is as follows - starting clockwise from the top left.

  • Kate - formerly Chris
  • Sarah
  • Baya Voce
  • Devyn Simone
  • Chet Cannon
  • JD Ordonez
  • Ryan Conklin
  • Scott Herman

This would be the first time a transgender cast member would be on The Real World and hints to why for the first time filming starts with eight instead of the usual seven cast members.

The reason I am told there are eight cast members to start with is because Kate may be leaving for the transgender surgery in Taiwan during filming and then return post-op - similar to another MTV reality series True Life.

Other interesting highlights of this cast include:

  • Devyn was the 2005 Miss American Teen National Pageant winner and is looking to be a singer.
  • JD is a dolphin trainer from Miami and had reportedly dated CNN news anchorAnderson Cooper according to the Gawker.
  • Chet is both a virgin and a mormon so the rest of the cast have taken it upon themselves to help him lose his virginity when they go out, which is generally in Manhattan since the Red Hook area has given the cold shoulder to the cast.

Oops, I forgot to say Katie C. was the one who told me about this show. She met Kate in Thailand when the were both there for their surgeries.

Thanks Katie,
