So ‘Real World’ is still a show — and you could be the next cast member
First thing’s first — are you the realest? If so, MTV’s ‘Real World’ wants you to be one of the next group of strangers picked to live in a house, stop being polite and start getting real.
The reality series will be holding an open casting call from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 1 at Paddy Whack’s Irish Sports Pub in Philadelphia. (At least you’ll be able to have a shot before meeting with the casting directors.)
Those who believe they were destined to be on reality TV and embarrass their parents on MTV are required to come with a recent picture — which can include a selfie, of course — and a photo ID. Potential cast members must turn 21 years old by October 2015 and appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24 — so if you’re a 22-year-old junkie who looks 36, you’re probably not going to be cast.
If you’d like to be on the show, grab your daddy issues and cancel your therapy session, because you’ve got a road trip to plan.
