The Housemates

It takes all kinds, and all species, to create great reality WebTV.
Scroll down or click on the housemates below to see the cast and crew pictures and bios.


  Achoo is  a member of the Anime Fighting Championship. His choice to bring an arsenal of weapons as his "luxury item" leads to mistrust among the housemates.
  Goody is your good  old-fashioned cowboy in every way -- except for the questionable night he may or may not have spent with Inky Twink on Buttcrack Mountain.

Lou is another dog who's a former member of the dog-fighting ring. Can he ever forgive himself for what happened to Clifford?
  Boticelli is an Adolescent Reptilian Kung Fu Expert. His attempt to keep the peace during week 1 somehow backfires.     Hooby Yoo is known for solving crimes along with his pals. But we learn of another crime he was involved in -- Martin Wick's dog-fighting ring.    Mermalde is a mermaid who we soon learn has a weakness for blue monsters. In fact, Crummy is her baby's daddy.

Crummy Monster is a former star of the children's show "Poppy Place." But we soon learn that he has a sordid history with costar Elbo as well as Mermalade.
  Inky Twink is a former star of the children's show "The Belly Buddies." He is delighted to learn he'll be sharing the house with Goody -- a possible old flame.

Ninkumbell is a fairy who can fly as well as change sizes. Unfortunately, she unintentionally shrinks to 8" tall before each challenge. 

Dumbob is a sponge who takes a lot of grief for being so unlike the other housemates. We eventually learn he has suicidal tendencies.    Jew Bear, as his name suggests, is a Jewish bear. He'll receive an unexpected visitor and take on a leadership role in week 3.   Olly Up is the object of Goody's affection early on, but she soon thwarts his efforts. Olly will soon take on the role of the house handy-man.
  Elbo was another member of the "Poppy Place" cast. He, however, has since gone on to fame and fortune. Was it at Crummy's expense?   Kiki Bonjour is a French want-to-be- movie-starlet. She's willing to do anything (and anyone) to get to the top.
Prince Charmin is engaged to be married to the fair Citronella. Can he survive the temptations of Kiki Bonjour and the rest?
  Farf Infader is the leader of  the Imperial Darkside who happens to also have a Ph.D. We'll soon learn who's behind the mask.
