Real World: Portland | Jordan
Jordan excels at nearly everything he tries. In high school, he was a captain of the football, baseball, and wrestling teams, and he is now a semi-professional wake boarder. He tried out for the cheerleading team on a friend's dare and four national championships later, he's clearly proved to his friend that he can do anything he puts his mind to. All of this despite the fact Jordan was born with no fingers on his left hand. But he doesn't view this as a handicap and has never let it slow him down--in sports, or with the ladies. Jordan credits his achievements to tough love from his father, who accepted neither excuses nor failures. Jordan is an overachiever who doesn't just like things done his way, he needs them done his way. In fact, Jordan has never been wrong. Or at least that's what he would have you believe. He often finds himself fighting with others who don't live up to his high standards. The same is true in Portland, where he clashes time and again with nearly everyone in the house. He particularly has conflict with Jessica and Anastasia, who refuse to put up with his criticism of them. Jordan is very ambitious and is currently studying Marketing at the University of Central OK. His biggest fear is dying without making his mark on the world. Underneath this hard exterior, there's a deep pool of insecurity and self-doubt that slowly reveals itself in Portland.
