Cara Kahn was featured as a member of the cast in the eleventh season of the MTV reality television series The Real World, which was set in Chicago. She was born on September 7, 1979 into a family of Jewish-American heritage, and originally hails from the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. Kahn has been described as wanting to emulate her older brother for his academic excellence, and to live up to the expectations of their father, a doctor and professor. She went on to pursue higher learning at Washington University located in St. Louis, where she continued to develop her creative talents instead of pure intelligence and book smarts.
While she has gone through a string of romances with various men, Kahn suddenly broke off her last serious relationship to a man named Jared while she was in Chicago, whom she declared to be the great love of her life. She did this in order to try and gain a greater sense of independence and strength in her own life. But in spite of this, she still went on to have numerous trysts and sexual encounters with different men, such as a rock star and another ex-boyfriend. In one episode, another side of her was shown when she talked about her weight and her use of antidepressants.
