So in the neverending story of how reality television dominated the world, it is impossible to overlook where it all began. "The Real World" was one of the first shows that pulled Amerikay and the rest of the globe into reality tv, and it still hasn't been canceled.
Tonight was the premiere of it's latest location, where 8 strangers live in a Washington D.C. house and do God knows what... Yes, that's 8...not 7.
This season on the show where people stop being polite and start being real, there are 4 guys and 4 girls out there to enchant us.
So yeah, this season there are some people who will be really interesting and others that are totally fake and not worth a second of your time.
One jerk/woman was so annoying...she's all like "I heart obama! I own a passport,but I've never used it." Another was a blonde nincompoop, who has nothing to say. There is also a rather attractive girl who grew up in the church but is now a wild child.
And of course.....................a musician.
For the guys. WHO CARES?!?!?!??!?
The only guy that is remotely fun to watch is the quirky and socially awkward bloke from Colorado who got kicked out of art school. Why? because he's funny. The rest are lame as stale marshmallows.
The result for "The Real World: DC."
Don't watch it!!!
However, if you happen to catch an episode out of boredom and preventing you from a nervous crisis explosion.. Go for it. It won't put you to sleep, but it might give you a splitting headache.
QATFYG: Do you watch the real world? If so which season? I still adore Lori from Back to New York. Also, do you blame the real world for this craze of reality tv....or would you toss the blame on Survivor or Idol?
so, I watched the premiere, and I have to say, I was a little impressed. the people they picked were not universally, face-meltingly 'hot' (the mtv definition and my definition of 'hot' diverge, but I know what music television looks for when it tries to win male viewers with fap-worthy babez0rs) and there was some, dare I say it, natural intelligence present. I just think it's funny, they had to make intelligence at least PART of their decision process this time around (as opposed to RWC). And I think the ex-cult girl is my favorite.ReplyDelete
Also, I love how that cartoonist guy was making the dumb southern blonde girl think so hard it looked as though she was in physical pain.
Since MTV has been declining in quality for the past several years, a few good seasons of the real world have emerged.
For example, Hollywood was really good. (ha cheap rhyme). But then again sydney and denver were totally boring. there is some hope for DC. However, I will not watch it religiously....maybe just catch the marathon reruns.
