Late teens and 20-somethings living together, some LGBT roommates. While most gay, lesbian and bisexual cast members' sexuality were discussed or shown on the program, Coral did not come out of the closet (as having a fluid sexuality) until years after her season had ended. Norman dated Charles Perez on-camera, which had the effect of outing Perez. Pedro Zamora dated Sean Sasser on the show and the two exchanged vows in an on-air commitment ceremony. Despite a confrontation with a castmate ending with him being called a homosexual, Williams (Seattle) did not come out until a subsequent reunion special. Marlon identified as having bisexual tendencies in the course of the series, later publicly moved away from so identifying, before coming out as bisexual on The Challenge.[92][93] Arielle and Ashley are ex-girlfriends brought together for a season dubbed "Real World: Ex-plosion".[94]
