After a decade-long hiatus, VH1’s The Surreal Life officially returns to the small screen on Oct. 24, 2022. The long-awaited seventh season will follow the reality series’s original format, following a group of eight celebrities forced to live in a mansion together for several weeks as cameras document their every move.
As we celebrate the return of the first-ever celebrity social experiment, we can’t help but wonder which famous faces will participate in the new installment. On that note, stick around as we unveil the Season 7 cast of The Surreal Life.
Let’s meet the Season 7 cast of ‘The Surreal Life.’
August Alsina is an R&B singer from New Orleans. He released his first mixtape, titled “The Product,” in 2012, followed by his debut studio album “Testimony” in 2014.

Dennis Rodman is a former professional basketball player and is considered the best rebounding forward in NBA history.
During his career, the New Jersey native played for the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and the Dallas Mavericks. Although he was known for his skills on the court, Dennis drew much attention for his “bad boy” persona and controversial antics.

Other credits include Big Fat Liar, Agent Cody Banks, The Black String, Harley Quinn, The Rookie, and New Amsterdam. In 2017, Frankie finished in third place on Season 25 of Dancing with the Stars.

She’s also landed roles in television shows like MADtv, Frasier, The Geena Davis Show, 10 Items or Less, and Baby Daddy.

Manny Gutierrez, known professionally as Manny MUA, is a makeup artist and entrepreneur best known for being the first male brand ambassador for Maybelline. Since kickstarting his career on YouTube, Manny has launched his own cosmetics brand called Lunar Beauty, which “embodies his love for whimsical beauty with products that are out-of-this-world beautiful.”
Stephanie Gregory Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, is an adult film star and award-winning director. Ahead of the season premiere, Stormy exclusively told Distractify that she ended up bringing her haunted doll, Susan, to the house during filming.

She began her career in the ’90s, forming the quintet known as the Braxtons with her sisters. She later embarked on a solo career, and has since been nominated for four Grammy Awards.
