Landon Hart | 19 | “The Loud Covert” | FC: Max Irons | Open
Landon is the type of guy you would expect to see sitting in a corner by the window, taking pictures of the view down below. Then you’ll find him at the center of a party, showing everyone how to have a good time. Landon’s charismatic and mysterious, but has a soft, creative side. He can be a bit quiet sometimes, but he is never one to back out of a prank war. Most times, he’s even the one who proposes the prank war. He’s fun to talk to and can be absolutely hilarious, but also dislikes meaningless conversations and is a bit of a heart breaker. Girls never simply give up, though, and Landon’s gotten used to that. What he hasn’t gotten used to, however, is the accent of everyone around him.
All his life, Landon has lived in the UK, bathed in luxury passed onto him by his late parents. For some reason, however, Landon finds himself inside the House of Eovi seeking the comfort only a true family and friends could provide. Yes, his nanny was a wonderful person, but there were things that simply can’t be shared with her. Like his lack of a love life, for one.
Almost three years have passed since the plane crash that killed Landon’s parents and younger sister, but his heart still wrenches whenever he thinks about them. He avoids even talking about them now. Can anyone be able to break through Landon’s sarcastic demeanor and teach him to listen to his heart?
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? I had nothing else to do anyway.
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? Entertainment, perhaps.
->Landon’s secret: He longs for love.
Aiden Kovalic | 17 | “Sergeant Sarcastic” | FC: Francisco Lachowski | Open
Aiden tends to be very sarcastic. While his friends find him hilarious for this, his teachers find it annoying. But they’ve gotten used to his snappy replies by now. Having Aiden answer a question properly is quite the rare sight. He’s overly sarcastic, possessive, and impatient, but underneath all that is someone so much lovable. Aiden can be caring, resourceful, and is also quite the generous guy. He always puts other people’s needs before his. But, of course, his endearing side tends to be less noticeable because of the way he speaks.
Unlike most, however, Aiden’s brother is absolutely convinced that Aiden has to change his brusque ways before he turns eighteen or he gets kicked out of their little apartment. He only has four months to do so and, knowing that his brother never backs out of a promise, he thought that he might as well start looking for a new place to stay now. He couldn’t go back to his parents in Brazil, of course. He still had to finish his studies and his parents would only kill him if they got word of how badly he was doing. So he decided to enter the House of Eovi and win some cash. He might even become famous if he gets lucky, and surely he’d have a place to crash once that happens.
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? Because I needed the money, obviously. And a place to stay.
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? Money, money, money.
->Aiden’s secret: He got a girl pregnant once, but she had a miscarriage before the baby was even two months old.
Hailey Heffernan | 18 | “The Almost-Doll” | FC: Miranda Kerr | Taken
The first thing that usually comes to mind when people see Hailey is that she’s amazingly beautiful. It’s almost as if the word ‘doll’ was made for her. She’s cute and sexy at the same time. She seems so naive and vulnerable. Hear her talk, though, and it’s like you’ve peeled back all her doll like layers to reveal her true form.
Hailey is generally outspoken and assertive. She enjoys being the center of attention, especially if the attention is coming from the opposite sex. She loves to flirt and could usually be found loitering around the House of Eovi in such revealing clothes. Underneath this frisky and daring mien, however, is someone who’s a bit more sensitive and less thick-skinned.
Tried and tried she has, but Hailey has never fallen in love before. She envies her so-called friends who tell her so many romantic stories about their boyfriends. Hailey dreams about getting that kind of giggly feeling, too. She wants to feel those infamous sparks that would course through her veins whenever she sees the person she loves. She longs for that deafening bass that would make her heart throb like it would fall off her chest. How can she find her one true love, and real friends for that matter, when she’s mostly a bitch to the girls and only thinks of the boys as sex toys?
Hailey’s also got a secret, one that she keeps hidden deep underneath her skin. As much as Hailey loves the attention from guys, she strives to attract the same sex as well. Hailey hates labels, but knows she’s curious. She can’t help but envision her dream girl every now and then, but that image is quickly pushed out of her mind. But somewhere, deep inside, there’s a curious girl inside of Hailey.
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? We all want a little fun in our life, don’t we?
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? Some money. Some fun. You know what I mean.
->Hailey’s secret: Hailey covets a secret deep within her, she’s interested in girls as well.
Eric Lewiston | 18 | “The Clown” | FC: Charlie McDonnell | Open
Being charming, witty, and intelligent can definitely do wonders to a person’s ego. But for Eric, these are traits of his that he himself barely even notices. Eric is best known around their small little village for his jokes and pranks. He’s uncomfortable around people who are upset in any way and tries to avoid them, but would do anything to cheer the people close to his heart up. And he barely even has to try. Just a few words, a smile, and some random mumbo jumbo from him always somehow manages to enliven anyone’s day. Eric loves to cook and would usually sing when he does. He also tends to blurt scientific facts out when he feels that things are getting awkward.
Eric comes from a very happy family. His father’s quite a well known chef and his mother’s a simple house wife. He has two older sisters. One is in college and the other already has a family of her own, but they both try their best to come and visit home often. Eric loves his family deeply, and, unlike most of the other contestants, doesn’t have any family-related problems at all. As some would say, Eric is completely ‘pure of hatred’. And perhaps that’s why Madam Eovi picked him to be one of the contestants. In a house full of perplexed teenagers, there has to be someone to lighten the mood.
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? Is this going to affect my chances of winning? Because I honestly don’t even remember why I applied.
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? Some fun.
->Eric’s secret: He’s afraid to fall in love because of having been dumped in the friend zone too many times before.
Katherine Cutrone | 18 | “The Over Achiever” | FC: Amber Heard | Open
Most people, if not everyone, see Katherine as perfect. She’s the golden girl. She’s extremely beautiful, smart, and she doesn’t boast about it. Her parents aren’t always around for her because of their hectic business schedules, but this isn’t a very big price to pay for someone who gets to live off their family fortune anyway. At least, that’s what her friends think.
Katherine is dying inside. She hasn’t had a proper conversation with either of her parents for many years now. Phone calls rarely last for more than five minutes. And they haven’t been home for more than two weeks for so long. Katherine is determined not to let these things faze her, though. She wants to prove to everyone, not just her parents, that she can live on her own; that she doesn’t need her parents’s support or money. The question is, will she make it? Can she stand being ‘independent’ any longer? Or will she break down and settle back for being the ghost of the family?
Now, Katherine tries harder than ever to make everything perfect. She stays up late at night, studying hard to get straight A+’s in school. She joined the cheerleading squad for the popularity. And she’s the Student Council President. Everything was already perfect. Even more so when she got the acceptance letter from the House of Eovi. But will she be able to keep her act up in front of millions eyes waiting for her to slip-up?
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? I want my parents to notice me. I want to show them that I don’t need them, that I don’t care that they’re never actually home.
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? Fame, more than anything.
->Katherine’s secret: Dark thoughts tend to cloud her mind and make her think of bad things about other people sometimes.
Nicole Park | 17 | “The Queen Bee” | FC: Jessica Jung | Taken
As a girl of high class, Nicole is used to getting what she wants. She can be sweet and funny, but her cunning and manipulative side tends to cover that up. At school, she is the ultimate queen bee. Girls would fall on their knees trying to be her friend and boys would be falling on theirs just to get her to notice them. Nicole absolutely loves her power. She is the kind of girl who gets a sense of delight by looking in the mirror, as being half Korean makes her stand out in the crowd of students in the hallways.
Nicole is also very picky when it comes to the people she fraternizes with. She doesn’t have an emotionally scarring background that made her crave attention, though, she just doesn’t like the dissatisfaction of ever being in anyone’s shadow. So when she applies for the House of Eovi and gets accepted almost immediately, she just knew that in six months time, she’ll be having dinner with Amelia Sara Eovi while she writes out that check for a million dollars.
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? Because I know I will win.
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? Recognition from everyone.
->Nicole’s secret: She feels lonely sometimes, but would never admit it.
Jessie Morgan | 17 | “The Normal One” | FC: Lucy Hale | Taken
After a brief introduction of all the House contestants, it’s easy to see Jessie as the one with the most average back story. She doesn’t have an emotionally scarring background. She wasn’t the queen bee or the loser back at school. Her family’s money doesn’t come flooding into her room, suffocating her. Nor does her family have to kill or sell drugs to have food to eat. She didn’t come from abroad, either. She does not have a disorder that makes her wake up in the middle of the night, sweating. And her personality was simply average.
It isn’t that all the other contestants are freaks, though. Jessie just happens to be the one without the emotional scars or the one with a huge chunk of the world burdened on to her shoulders. She leads a simple life with her simple family in a small, simple town. But in a competition where ‘simple’ simply doesn’t cut it, will Jessie find anything noteworthy enough about her to get her to stand out?
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? I guess I just wanted to spice things up a little bit.
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? Well, I am going to college soon. I suppose some money would be nice.
->Jessie’s secret: Sometimes she wishes she’d be a bit more interesting, like everybody else.
Matt McHenry | 19 | “The Hopeless Romantic” | FC: Nico Tortorella | Taken
At first sight, Matt is what everyone would think to be a rebel. He has the appearance of the typical bad boy that all the girls swoon over, what with the leather jackets and spiky black hair. But that isn’t who he is at all.
Matt is quite the sensitive guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. And despite the fact that most girls would give anything to be with him, Matt gets his heart broken painfully often. He loves and trusts people too easily, but the the girls that he takes a liking too tend to be the ones who just won’t like him back for who he is and would only date him because of his looks and popularity. His sweet and loving trait always seems to get him and his fragile heart into a lot of trouble.
His last girlfriend has just broken up with him for another guy and Matt couldn’t take the pity of his friends back home anymore. So when he received the news telling him he was accepted into the House of Eovi, he knew it was the final sign that he should go ahead and start anew. Will Matt go home broken hearted once more or will he finally find the girl who will love him back just as much as he loves her?
Why did you apply for the House of Eovi? I wanted a break from home, from everything.
What do you want to gain from the House of Eovi? I… don’t know. I just needed an excuse to leave, I suppose.
->Matt’s secret: He’s self esteem is actually very low, despite his confident acts. He doesn’t think he’ll ever be good enough for anyone.
