As each season of The Real World begins, both viewers and cast members spend the first episode wondering who the gay one is. That question was answered on Wednesday night’s New Orleans season premiere — the series’ 24th cycle — as soon as we met Preston Robertson-Charles. And as soon as we met Ryan Leslie, we also found out who the raging homophobe was!
Ryan (pictured, right) is the high-energy (read: obnoxious) sensitive hairdresser from Arizona, who comes from a long paternal line of hairdressers. He also HATES IT when anyone confuses him for A Gay. And on the roommates’ first night out on Bourbon Street, they ended up at a gay bar, where some ‘mo had the audacity to get up all in Ryan’s neck space. Cue homophobic comment, and complete psycho fall out.
It’s just Episode 1, Day 1. So much to look forward to!
