Ashtyn lives in a middle-class suburb of Lincoln, Nebraska. LeRoy and Kennisha live in apartments that are part of the Robert Taylor housing project on the South Side of Chicago, while Douglas, Vicky, and Mike live in one of the city's traditionally working-class, Polish communities and Eric and Brandon are from a wealthy suburb.
