Paige Terri | 18 | “The Undecided” | FC: Miley Cyrus | Taken
Paige is the girl who’s done it all. She’s gone from the resident bitch to the family sweetheart. She did drugs and also campaigned against bullying and animal abuse. She used to sing in concerts, but skipped a whole day of classes just to avoid reporting about the history of China. All her life, Paige has been transferring schools and skipping from city to city almost every year. This makes switching her image from bad to good and back simply too easy.
Right now, Paige is working the typical, confused eighteen year old thing. And she might not realize it for now, but that’s exactly what she is. Paige doesn’t know who she is and she’s tired of going all extreme on trying to find out. She might never admit it, but she’s exhausted. Everyday, before she goes to sleep, she would think of a new image to try out when their family moves again. She gets creative and her ideas do make her smile, but she knows that one day, the thrill of change will wear out and she’ll be left with no real personality. She’ll just be plain, boring Paige Terri. But can anyone make her see that she anything but that before she leaves the city once again? Will Paige ever find anyone who loves her for who she really is?

What do you want to gain from House of Eovi? I don’t know yet, but definitely something cool.
->Paige’s secret: Despite people telling her she’s pretty and everything, Paige has never really been happy in her own skin.
Tiffany Stein | 20 | “The Big Sister” | FC: Nina Dobrev | Open
Tiffany, or Fanny, is one of the most charming people you’ll ever meet. She’s caring, kind, and thoughtful. She always knows how to cheer people up. Her captivating smile alone can make anyone reconsider being so sad and just want to smile and laugh along with her. Fanny knows exactly how to captivate people with her enthralling ways. This is because she’s had years of practice.
Being the eldest of six children and her parents having abandoned them when she was only twelve, Tiffany grew up too quickly for anyone’s liking. She and her siblings were left in the caring hands of their grandmother, but things were never the same for Fanny. She had to strive to be able to feed the hungry mouths of her younger siblings. And when she was given the opportunity to enter the House of Eovi, she took it immediately. But how can she win the competition when, instead of working her way to the top, she finds herself caring for the younger, less noticeable competitors?
Why did you apply for House of Eovi? Because I need money.
What do you want to gain from House of Eovi? The cash prize. And… An escape, maybe. Some time for myself.
->Fanny’s secret: During desperate times, Fanny danced for clients at a nearby club when she was eighteen. She was fired after refusing to go home with one of their major clients.
Grace Tanbien | 18 | “The Shy One” | FC: Amanda Seyfried | Open
Grace Tanbien has lived her whole life in the shadows of her older siblings. She’s the type of girl you’d expect to be hiding behind a few loose strands of hair. She’s the girl that never raised her hand when a question was asked during class. She’s the one at the back of the room who always speaks in her low, barely audible voice. Basically, Grace rarely ever voices out her opinions.
Her older sister has graduated from Dartmouth and is on her way to becoming a successful lawyer while her older brother is working for BBC all the way in Europe. Grace, on the other hand, is barely passing her classes in school. She wants to do something about this, but her terribly low self esteem holds her back. This year, however, Grace is determined to change that. She entered the House of Eovi in hopes that she would be able to force herself out of her shell under the tough pressure. She tries to laugh more, talk more, and just be friendlier in general, but will she need more help than she thought?
Inside the House of Eovi, Grace will find standing out to be easier than she thought. She gets an easy head start to people liking her and it’s all thanks to her physical beauty. Now, all eyes are on her and she has to prove that she’s more than just a pretty face.
Why did you apply for House of Eovi? I wanted to do something I wouldn’t normally do.
What do you want to gain from House of Eovi? Confidence.
-> Grace’s secret: She was beaten numerous times by her father for not meeting the expectations set by her older siblings as a kid.
Alisa Stowe | 17 | “Miss Popular” | FC: Ashley Benson | Taken
Alisa Stowe; the name sends chills down the spine of the girls and tingles down the body of the boys. Alisa is your typical ‘popular’ girl. She’s got the looks, the money, and the attitude. She, however, isn’t ferociously vicious to everyone. She’s nice to those who’re nice to her and she’s a bitch to those who piss her off. Alisa’s created an elite group of girls at her school who share everything; from clothes and accessories, to gossip and kisses. She isn’t afraid to flaunt everything she knows she has and the guys at school absolutely love it. Surprisingly enough to most, she’s single. Alisa claims she isn’t ready for that kind of commitment yet, and, of course, everyone pretty much has to accept it. Otherwise is simply unthinkable.
But there’s more to just Alisa’s gorgeous blonde locks and light blue eyes. Most people never actually notice, but Alisa is a bit of a genius. She can memorize scientific terms and formulas as easily as she can identify the face of that girl caught making out with the school geek in the locker room. But Alisa’s never been very proud of her intelligent ways and love of studying. Early in her life, she’s realized that these things never actually get you far in life. Or in high school, at the very least. Everything’s always about how you look. This is the real reason that Alisa is afraid to have a boyfriend. It isn’t the commitment at all. She’s always wanted to have someone to cuddle with during windy nights or someone you can call at two in the morning and still be there for you. It’s her insecurities. She knows she’s stunning, yes. But what if the guy she likes won’t think so? What if he’s just dating her for her popularity? Can anyone make Alisa actually feel loved?
Why did you apply for House of Eovi? I wanted a change from the regular, boring days of my high school. Plus, who wouldn’t want to win some extra cash, right?
What do you want to gain from House of Eovi? The fame.
->Alisa’s secret: She’s still a virgin and is absolutely ashamed to admit it.
