Reunited: The Real World Las Vegas is a seven-episode, 2007 spin-off miniseries of The Real World: Las Vegas that reunited the cast of the 2002 season of The Real World to live in the same Palms Hotel and Casino suite they filmed the original series in, five years after filming ended on The Real World: Las Vegas. Filming began April 9, 2007, and lasted until approximately April 26. Trishelle Cannatella was the last cast member to agree to appear, as assurances were needed that filming would not conflict with her schedule. The mini-series premiered May 30, 2007 and concluded on July 11, 2007.

|Arissa Hill||28||Malden, Massachusetts||Arissa moved to Las Vegas shortly after filming ended. There, she was married to a bodyguard she met in Vegas, but the relationship fell apart when Arissa agreed to appear on Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes 2. Arissa made it to the final three women, but ultimately lost to the men. Her appearance on Battle of the Sexes 2 caused some friction among her former cast members, as Alton, Irulan and Steven all claimed on the now defunct Fishbowl.com that she was pretentious.|
|Frank Roessler||27||Lewisburg, Pennsylvania||Frank moved to Los Angeles after filming ended. He appeared on Battle of the Sexes 2. There, he began a brief relationship with fellow contestant Angela Trimbur (from Road Rules: X-Treme), but he didn't like the way in which their relationship was portrayed. During the show, Frank was accepted to the University of Southern California Marshall Business School to earn a Masters degree in Business Administration, though he never enrolled. Frank is now attending graduate school at UCLA. He appeared on Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet 3 in 2008. He was on the Rookies team, entering his 2nd challenge. He and Jillian (from Road Rules: X-Treme) began a small relationship while on the show. He made it to the end and won $50,000. At the reunion show, Frank said that Jillian and himself have moved in together.|
