The Hills: New Beginnings is in full swing, and I'm honestly surprised we had to wait this long to get the gang back together. No, Lauren Conrad (opens in new tab), a.k.a. LC, didn't return and neither did Kristin, but we have a lot of the OG cast members. For starters, Justin and Audrina (opens in new tab) are back so we can expect some level of drama. The Pratts (opens in new tab) have also had a La La Land homecoming just in time to re-join the cast. Obviously. Spencer would never miss this, and Heidi was essential to all The Hills plot lines, she's kind of the hero (opens in new tab) of the show. Not to be confused with Stephanie Pratt, who's also back and has picked up a very interesting British accent (opens in new tab). Not kidding.
Now for the newbies! Some of these newbies are famous in their own right. Some have famous parents, and some have married into The Hills family. Joining the cast is O.C. alum Mischa Barton (opens in new tab), Frankie Delgado, Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee's son Brandon Thomas Lee (opens in new tab), Brody Jenner's wife Kaitlynn, and Jason Whaler's wife Ashley. They all bring something new to the screen and obviously will make you want to know what is still unwritten. For those of you not familiar with the show Brody and Jason were love interests for Lauren, so it's a bold choice to bring them back with their significant others.
We asked the cast to play "High Stakes Jenga" in an attempt to get to know everyone a little better and also see who is the most competitive. Turns out Brody thinks he's good at everything, and Frankie considers tequila shots a cocktail. Get ready to fall in love with this new version of The Hills cast.
