Not just white, but, in several examples, highly privileged: Clara Kraebber, 20, is a wealthy Upper East Sider (with a second home in posh Litchfield County, Conn.) whose mom is an architect and dad a child psychiatrist who teaches at Columbia.

Elliot Rucka, 20, of Portland, Ore., is the son of a famed comic-book writer and best-selling author. Claire Severine, 27, seems to be a signed model and actress who has lived in Canada and Ireland. Etkar Surette, 27, summered in Austria as a child. Frank Fuhrmeister, 30, is a freelance art director who’s done work for Pepsi, Samsung and Glenlivet.
