This is the true story of seven strangers picked to live in a house, work together, and have their identities revealed exclusively by EW, along with the premiere date and the HUGE twist behind the upcoming 31st season of The Real World.

Mark your calendars: The season, which returns to Las Vegas for the third time in the franchise’s lengthy history, will premiere on Thursday, March 17 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV. The season’s title? The Real World: Go Big or Go Home. (More on that later.)

But first, meet the cast who will inherit the swanky top suite at the Gold Spike Hotel: The girls (from left to right) are Jenna (Easley, South Carolina), Sabrina (Topsfield, Massachusetts), CeeJai (Powder Springs, Georgia), and Kailah (West Palm Beach, Florida).

But don’t get too attached to any of the roommates. Thanks to this year’s big twist, they might not stick around too long: Missions will test the cast’s grit throughout the season, and if a housemate can’t complete the task, they’ll be booted from the house and replaced.

Some missions will be designed for the whole group, while others will specifically test individual cast members and force them to confront emotional moments from their past and dabble in their dreams. A brief sampling of the challenges they’ll confront? An extreme jump from a hot air balloon, an onstage performance at a strip club, and a face-to-face meeting between an adoptive child and their birth mother. So, you know, the usual.

Who will go big and who will go home? Find out March 17!
