Roger Evans is Tia and Tamera's annoying neighbor.
His advances were ill-received, however, and the repeated chorus by the various members of the household was "Go Home, Roger!" Roger did, however, date Tia and/or Tamera on occasion (only twice by their choice); in the season four episode "When a Man Loves Two Women" in particular, after going through a growth spurt, he asks out both Tia and Tamera, along with several other girls at Roosevelt High. Roger eventually matures into the twins' confidante, and at some points even becomes a love interest for a short amount of time.
For a number of episodes in Season 5, Roger appears infrequently with little to no explanation. This is due to Marques Houston's mother was suffering from cancer at the time. At the end of Season 5, after Tia and Tamera graduate from high school. At the graduation Roger performs his original song Never Say Goodbye. Roger is not seen or mentioned after this. However it could be presumed that this is because he is still in high school while Tia and Tamera are in college.
After a long absence, he was written back into the series as he appears in the final episode as a guest at Lisa's wedding and sings a song for her. So it is presumed that Roger still lived next door to the twins in season 6 but just wasn't around as much.
- Houston's real life persona was written in as his character's cousin in the season five episode "A Friend Indeed".
- Around the time the series began, Houston was also a member of the R&B group Immature (later known as IMx); why
