Marie Roda is a roommate on The Real World: St. Thomas. Born and bred in Staten Island, Marie is a loyal fan of the New York Giants and the New York Yankees. Marie develops an immediate attraction to Robb, though their relationship was very toxic. The two were committed to each other through the season. Marie also becomes best friends with LaToya.


A self-described "down ass bitch," Marie is one hell of a good time. With "Statitude" to spare -- that's Staten Island Attitude, for those not in the know -- Marie describes her worst trait as calling people out too often. She is going to put you in your place, whether you like it or not. Marie seems to be rebelling against her strict SVU cop mother who ruled with an iron fist while she was growing up. Partying and drinking often, she is a treasure trove of good stories and always seems to end up in bizarre situations. She once called in sick from her new job at a bar so that she could party. Later in the night, she got so drunk that she ended up partying at the same bar that she had called in sick from. Needless to say, she was fired. There's also the time that Marie lost a tooth and just went on partying for two weeks, toothless and fancy free. Marie is always looking for Mr. Right or even Mr. Right Now. With a house full of hotties, including a roommate who has the same Hakuna Matata tattoo as her, it doesn't seem like Marie will have any trouble finding a man. St. Thomas -- it's a wonderful place.
