Following the success of Million Dollar Listing LA, it was only right that Bravo take the franchise to the city that never sleeps!
On March 7, the network will debut Million Dollar Listing New York, which continues the same formula as its LA counterpart a.k.a following the professional and personal lives of three young
male real estate agents!
The press release promises “three of the most ambitious realtors give viewers an inside look into the aggressive, high-stakes world of New York City’s real estate market as they close multi-million dollar deals faster than a cab running a red light.”
The cast features from L to R: Ryan Serhant – who sold over $102 million in real estate in his first two years of business, Michael S. Lorber – who holds a law degree and has worked for Donald Trump, and Fredrik Eklund - who has more than 1.25 billion, yes billion, dollars in residential sales.
Now on to the juicy stuff as an insider sent us some gossip about the cast. For starters Fredrik is a former gay porn star! Yes Fredrik used to go by the porn moniker of Tag Eriksson and has starred in porn movies such as The Hole. ClASSy. Our insider reveals Fredrik had to leave his job at CORE because they allegedly did not want him doing the show due to his porn past.
When it comes to Michael, our insider tells Reality Tea that he is seemingly normal and that Bravo “cast him as the sexy, straight bachelor.” Looks at Michael’s photo again.. and allrighty!
As for Ryan, who is rumored to be dating Sonja Morgan, our source says he is a former model who was cast on the show at the last minute. Caroline Grane, Ryan’s business partner, was originally supposed to be the final cast member “competing with Fredrick while Michael falls for her romantically” but was demoted to having a supporting role after Bravo discovered Ryan. Caroline is reportedly none too happy about having a lesser role on the show.
With the gossip out of the way, you can read the official bios of the cast below!

The boys are back! The California real estate gurus of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing are set to return on Tuesday, February 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Joining regulars Josh Flagg and Madison Hildebrand will be Josh Altman, who is described as “one of the most successful real estate agents in the Beverly Hills and Hollywood Hills luxury housing market.” Josh’s clientèle reportedly consists mostly of entertainers, athletes and high net worth individuals from all over the world. Over the past year, he has sold over $38,000,000 and has another $50,000,000 in current listings.
And as you may have noticed from the above photo, Chad Rogers and his hair will not be returning to the show for reasons unknown. What we do know is that both Bravo and Chad’s reps confirm that it was Chad’s decision to leave the show. We are going to guess money/contract issues. Chad also tweeted recently that he is no longer with his girlfriend from the show.
The 4th season promises to explore Madison’s professional life as well as his much talked about love life, and exploring his newfound sexuality with some surprising twists and turns. As for Josh Flagg, the season will also focus on him as he pens his own memoirs and writes an inspirational how-to book for making it in the dog-eat-dog world of real estate. Does this mean we still won’t get to see a glimpse of Josh’s love life?
In other MDL news, Bravo is also looking to expand the show beyond California. The NY Post reported earlier this month that filming has began on a NYC spin-off, which is being described as more of a Bravo Housewives series due to all the drama.
The characters in the New York version will include Fredrik Eklund, a Swedish, gay ex-porn star turned Manhattan real estate hottie, and his business partner John Gomes. Also included will be Caroline Grane, described as a as “pretty and personable” Swedish bombshell, with the fourth cast member being Michael Lorber, a soft-spoken, smart, eligible bachelor on the show.
