She also says that she has no friends back home, the only person she is close to is her mother, which is why she wants to be accepted in Portland.
Jessica says she tends to choose men who are unable to meet her needs, but she is still looking for the right man.
Most seasons of The Real World since the fifth season have included the assignment of a season-long group job or task to the housemates, continued participation in which has been mandatory to remain part of the cast since the Back to New York season.
However, no group assignment is given to the cast this season; the castmates are free to apply for jobs that production had pre-approved at local eateries.
Nia was dismissed from her work at the pizzeria, but because jobs this season were not a mandatory group assignment, she did not have to leave the show.
The cast lived in a 20,000 square foot, two-story building at 338 NW 9th Avenue, at the corner of Northwest Flanders Street.
The show was hosted by Jillian Barberie and premiered on July 8, 2002.
