“The Real World” – a true story of seven strangers (who are often-times stereotyped and dramatic, but it works for the ratings) picked to move into a house, work together and have their lives taped and find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting REAL.
MTV announced Monday that the show’s 18th season would be filmed in Denver. As the longest-running reality TV series, spanning 14 years and cities throughout the United States as well as some in Europe, the Denver housemates will live in Lower Downtown Denver.
I’ll be interested in seeing how the Denver installment of ‘The Real World’ plays out. I had been a fan of the series, but lately I’ve found it to be boring and too stereotypical. Yes, stereotypes are one of the things that makes the series popular. That and drama and the willingness of people to have their lives taped and shown. Only time will tell see if Denver and the new housemates have what it takes to get me back and watching the drama. Never mind that the latest incarnation of the series, set in beautiful and idyllic Key West, has attracted nearly 100 million viewers. Perhaps I’ll tune in this time around and stay with it.
