Greg is the first Real World roommate to be selected by viewers, who voted online for "PretyBoy" (aka "The Chosen One"). With an unusual outlook on life -- he refers to people around him as "peasants" and calls women "associates" -- he is extremely competitive when it comes to sports and academics.

Although he studied criminal justice at the University of Florida, Greg moved to Hollywood with dreams of becoming a model.
