A "tell it like it is" kind of girl with a big mouth and no filter, Jamie is a spitfire from Philly who is sure to heat up this competition. "Being real" is what Jamie is all about, and whether 또는 not people can handle the truth "isn't her problem." With her spunky charm, bubbly personality and electric smile, it's easy to see why Jamie describes herself as "a 레이 of sunshine." And with her feisty, in-your-face attitude, it's also easy to see why she adds that she's "a 레이 of sunshine that isn't afraid to burn you." Possessing the "rawness" that she feels embodies her beloved hometown of Philly, Jamie is "honest to a fault, opinionated and tough, but also has the biggest 심장 in the world." After the Eagles 로스트 their shot at the Super Bowl recently, Jamie says, "Philly is hungry for a new champion, and she intends to be the Rocky of Majide!"

Drew Sealey
Good looking, smart and admittedly shallow, Drew is as blunt as they come. This successful attorney has a high opinion of himself and has a low tolerance for those who don't meet his standards. Working hard for his money, he's happy being frivolous with it and loves showing it off with toys and in his lifestyle. Drew works hard but plays harder; he frequently flies to South 바닷가, 비치 and Vegas to party on the weekends. Into his looks, skin care and clothes, this pretty boy is as straight as they come. He thinks the world revolves around him and will only help others out if it would benefit him in one way 또는 another.
Age: 29
Hometown: St. Louis, MO
Occupation: Attorney

We'll have no troubles finding Dan's ego, that's for sure. He enjoys jetting off to South 바닷가, 비치 또는 Las Vegas for the weekends, will not tolerate people who are not worthy of him, and doesn't go out of his way to help anyone unless there's something in it for him. Where do they find these people?

Judge Bob
Contestants on Majide know better than to try and pull any funny business on this veteran of the game show world. Keeping the code of conduct in strict order since the mid-1980s, Bob has been named to the Japanese Game Show Hall of Fame a record nine times. However, being such a modest man, he has yet to accept.

Birthplace: Kyoto, 일본
Education: Graduate of the Morimoto School of Athletic Fairness

Judge Bob is the guy who decides if contestants have completed the games successfully. We don't hear much from him on the show, but he's an integral part of it.

In Judge Bob's bio, ABC calls him "rarely dynamic but always entertaining." This is a perfect description!

Cathy Grosam
Cathy is the cute and funny housewife who's also ultra competitive. She's is one of those moms that everyone wishes they'd had growing up: She's super involved, loud, crazy and a whole lot of fun. She's also always the loudest mom cheering from the sidelines. Not a 'desperate housewife,' Cathy loves being a full time, stay at 집 mom, calling herself a "child engineer." Some may call her controlling, but she'd say she just loves to be involved in everything her kids do. She is the VP of the PTA and the coach for her son's 축구 team. The moms around her neighborhood call her "The 퀸 of School."
Age: 36
Hometown: Bartlett, IL
Occupation: Housewife

Cathy is involved in the PTA, her kids' 축구 team, and says that people call her the "Queen of School." I have no idea what that means. She adds that others might find her controlling, but figures that she's the type of mom that everyone wishes they'd had growing up.

Age: 22
Hometown: Easton, CT
Occupation: Stable Hand.She's our token "spoiled rich girl" for the season.

Debbie's bio actually says that her parents shielded her from the "realities of sharing, poverty and heartache." She's never had to face being told that she can't do something, so she figures she can get anything she wants. Which is fine, depending on how this manifests itself. If she assumes things will be handed to her, she'll have problems. If she's willing to work for what she wants, then 더 많이 power to her.

Justin Brown is a real life "Van Wilder." He is funny, has tons of ambition, but lacks the focus and dedication to truly get what he wants. As a fifth 년 senior, he has gained the confidence and subtle arrogance that come with being a big 물고기 in a small pond.

Justin describes himself as a "real life 봉고차, 반 Wilder." For us older folks, he's a real life Jeff Spicoli, 더 많이 또는 less. He's been kicked out of school, but was able to talk his way back in and is now president of his fraternity. He admits that he lacks the focus and determination to actually get out there and so something with his life.

Megan puts the ME in Megan. The world revolves around her and, if it doesn't, she'll do something about that! Growing up on a farm in rural Ohio, this only child is also a walking 텔레비전 show, and everything that comes out of her mouth is wildly funny 또는 sarcastic. Beneath the sarcasm and bravado, however, you'll find that Megan is incredibly sensitive, likable and prone to drama and tears.

Apparently, our Megan is a bit spoiled, thinking the world exists purely for her own enjoyment. She calls herself a "walking TV show" because everything she says is so funny and fascinating. Megan tells us, in her bio, that she is prone to drama and tears, but that's only because she's so sensitive and likable.

Willful yet likable, Dan is a librarian who "has an opinion about everything." Whether the topic is politics, 영화 또는 the color of the sky, Dan's the type of guy who "always believes he's right, and everyone else is wrong." But don't let his choir boy looks and tendency to blush fool you. This avid poker player is no pushover, and he's not afraid to manipulate a situation to his advantage. This self professed virgin was 집 schooled and is the product of a conservative, religious upbringing. He never curses, and his 가장 좋아하는 phrase is "Oh my word." He'll be the ultimate 물고기 out...
