Survivor’s Remorse has become one of our “can’t miss” shows. With the third season premiering on July 24 at 10 p.m., #TeamBeautiful is gearing up to watch our favorite family, the Calloways, dominate the screen once again.
One of the best things about the Calloways is how relatable they are to the people we have in our own lives. From the unapologetic mom to the cousin who can fix it all, check out how the cast is a mirror of the people we live with every day.
The Family Patriarch – Cam Calloway
Played by Jessie T. Usher, Cam is a professional basketball player who works tirelessly to support his family and keep them living well. Having left the streets of Boston to re-locate to Atlanta, Cam is all about taking care of the people he loves — even when they bring the inevitable drama.
Many of us have that caretaker in our lives that would do anything to keep their family safe and happy. Every time Cam comes on screen, we’re reminded of our own father figures and their undying devotion.
The Perfect Catch – Missy Vaughn
Played by Teyonah Parris, Missy is literally everything — and she knows it! She’s sexy and independent and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. As the queen diva who invented the “hot and cold” game, her unattainable status makes her irresistible to the men in her life. And those good looks certainly help as well.
Missy is the embodiment of that confident friend or sister we all have in our lives. She knows what she wants and, more importantly, knows what she deserves. We love that about her here at #TeamBeautiful’s HQ.
The Unapologetic Mama – Cassie Calloway
Played perfectly by Tichina Arnold, Cassie is the ultimate Black mama who fights for her son to get everything his heart desires. And her son Cam definitely knows it. She’s tough on the outside (and super fly, of course) but she’s also got a heart of gold —not to mention more than a few suitors trying to win it!
Cassie is definitely the woman who works hard, loves hard, and has no time for your nonsense. If that’s not a characteristic in every Black mom, we don’t know what is.
The Ride-Or-Die Cousin – Reggie Vaughn
RonReaco Lee plays Cam’s cousin and is the quintessential jack-of-all-trades. He’s anything and everything Cam needs, including his closest confidant. Reggie is also the true heart of the family, taking care to squash any drama and keep the family bond strong.
Reggie definitely has his missteps here and there, but he’s still the cousin we all know and love. You could call him in a bind and he would take care of any issue that comes up. He’s devoted, loving, and willing to do anything his family members need.
The No-Nonsense Big Sis – M-Chuck
Erica Ash plays Cam’s big sis, M-Chuck, and she is the quintessential protective big sis who will always see her brother as a little boy. She’s his biggest fan, but she is also the one who will make sure he never slips up.
M-Chuck is the sister so many of us can relate to; she drives you absolutely crazy, but will shut down anyone who even thinks about messing with you. Her loyalty to Cam is everything you would want in a sister, in spite of any bickering they may do. Above all, she’s that person who will be there no matter what.
