This is The True Story...

So, on June 21st, the sixteenth season of "Real World" is set to premiere on MTV.

I admit it: I am a "Real World" junkie.

I haven't seen all of the seasons, or even all of the episodes from any one season, but when I happen to catch it, I revel in it. AMB says that this addiction proves that I love drama, but in reality it just proves that I like seeing what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.

That's why I am so disappointed to find out that the new season was filmed in Austin WHILE I WAS THERE. How did I not see them? I spent nearly every night at the bars on Sixth Street but did not see a camera crew filming one drunken hook-up or police confrontation. WTF? How am I ever going to get famous if I can't even get hit on by the "Sensitive Jock" character and get invited back to hot tub with them and have my face blurred out when that episode airs because I wouldn't sign the waiver, because in my drunken haze thank god I couldn't even write my own name?

This is God

“thank god I couldn't even write my own name”

You’re very welcoming. I’m always one to look out for my pet projects. Keep it Real.

This was God

Sensitive jock? I see you gravitating more toward the "good bad boy."

OMG, My friends and I are totally RW junkies! We were in Austin for SXSW and hung out with Wes, some of his friends that were in town from Kansas City, and Johanna and her friends that were in town from Cali!! We found them at the Dizzy Rooster and got slammed! We didn't get to go back to the house because they already had too many guests! We totally had to sign waivers! We're planning on having a RW watching party every Tuesday, also to watch Laguna Beach!

I used to want to be on Real World, but I refuse to try out because when they pick me and the first show airs, it would only be a matter of days, nay, MINTUES before my parents disown me, cut me off finacially, and give someone else my inharitance.
I'm a naughty girl.

They didn't good thing too cause I got deployed a month after sending it in but here is an interesting link for all you real world people check it out http://www.realworldhouses.com/index.html it gives you info pictures about the houses including the address of the new one in Austin

Shucks. I don't like Real World (I can barely tolerate Real Life!), and I also don't like the new photo quite as well, either.

But I'll forgive you for both! ;-)

I a agree with
"Paladin since 1979"
~ Except for the part about not liking The Real World.. or Real Life.

Derek - I tried the whole local angle with the Vegas season, too. I'm rather glad it didn't work, because I think I would've beotch slapped Trishelle within the first 5 minutes. I do remember my freshman year of college when they came to campus for interviewing - my buddy made it all the way to the video-phone interviews (right before they fly the final contestants to LA for face-to-face sit downs), and he made me promise to come and visit if he made it on. Um, duh! I would be happy to have a cameo on RW!

I adopted the cat of a friend who worked on the SD season and couldn't take the cat to Philly. That must make me some sort of celebrity.

Bridget Unnel said...

I used to like that series until VH1s "Surreal Life" came out. I need my voyeurism in a nice and tidy box, so I opted for their two weeks instead!

AMG,

Did you ever hear that Lou-Wuss made like the regional semi-finals of casting then he turned them down because they'd get the rights to any SOJH stuff he brought to the show?

This was like 5 years ago, but still.

I have to say, I find myself most exasperated with your audacious obsession. For too long our society has capitalized on the wholesale drugs and violence that spawned such a rambunctious television show, subsequently breeding a nation with undermined morals and values. Such a catastrophic turn in events can only lead to larger problems in the future, such as global warming. In conclusion, I find the weezer Blue Album to be quite rockin’.

Guilty. I watch the Fake World and other related shows(Battle of the Sexes, Inferno, and Gauntlet) way to much and I'm way past my MTV prime. I'm 30...

Aaron the Truck Driver said...

THE question is, which person did you like the least?

I would have to vote for the entire Seattle cast.

Especially the two knuckle-heads from Boston with the one guy crying over the girl he met during casting.
Because they fell in love..
In a matter of a day.
And she quit her gig at MTV to be with him.
He in turn brought on so much drama she had to leave.

Remember that one?
What a dolt!

Maybe the boring blond singer chick was ok, and the boring asian.

Maybe

I live in Austin, and trust me I get around town. I saw them just ONCE while they were here. My roommate saw them just once, my friend is definitely going to make the show as the drunken redneck who hits on one of the girls. But, I expected a *lot* more funny stories out of the whole deal. I feel totally betrayed by Bunim and Murray.

I think they were mostly holed up in their loft or at the most touristy tourist places ever. Although, where would that even be?? Bizarre.
