If Emily in Paris had you contemplating booking a one-way ticket to the Charles de Gaulle airport, then you may want to check out the new Bravo reality series, Real Girlfriends in Paris.

While the Netflix dramedy glamorized what it's like to move to Paris, RGIP offers a more realistic (though, still very Instagrammable) look at how expats really live, work, and date in the City of Love.

The six main cast members on the debut season all hail from the United States (though Margaux Lignel has dual citizenship), and they are navigating love, career hurdles, quarter-life crises, and visa issues while trying to make their dreams a reality in Paris.

As viewers get to know the newest Bravolebrities, they may be wondering about how old the stars are, and they may be interested in finding out more about their respective jobs.

1. Anya Firestone (32)

The 32-year-old, who is the eldest cast member, has been living in Paris on-and-off for about a decade. When she's not spending time with her fiancé, Matthieu Rasset, and their dog, Zsa Zsa, in their picturesque apartment, Anya can be found offering tours at the Louvre or at the Musée d'Orsay.

She's also the founder of her own business, Maison Firestone, which offers clients "boutique experiences" in dining, art, food, and design.

When Victoria first moved to Paris about two years before the show, she was married and studying at Parsons Paris. The Texan got divorced after she found out that her ex-husband was getting to know one of her classmates.

Now, the 25-year-old is the head designer for the luxury fashion brand, Chloe Colette.

Margaux's parents are from France, so as a dual citizen, she grew up dividing her time between New York and Paris. When Margaux turned 26, she said it sparked her desire to really figure out what she wanted to do for a career.

On the show, she's trying to set up an agency for creatives (and to finally become financially independent from her parents).

When RGIP begins, Adja is at a crossroads in her career. As she explained on the premiere, she was told that she would get to move back to the beauty team at her digital e-commerce company after a year-and-a-half on the cookware team. When that change didn't happen as quickly as she thought, the 25-year-old began to consider whether she would start her own consulting company.
