Detroit would be perfect, definently the real world. After they got bored with Greektown or around the GM center i wonder what would happen. I don't usually watch the real world but i think i would if it took place in Detroit
I like that idea also. That would be really interesting to see. I think they'll just end up hanging out in Ann Arbor or across the river in Windsor.

There's some worse crime ridden cities than Atlanta, such as New Orleans and Philly, and they managed to have the Real World in those cities.

I think Rio de Janeiro.... They could get of the plane in paradise, spend a couple day in the house, and on the beach. Eventually mingle with the locals, and get kidnapped and their organs sold on the black market. Maybe they would get lost in a shanytown, and get caught in the middle of a drug war!!! Now that's entertainment!!

NO. No more NYC and LA, they already get too much MTV spotlight as it is.

New Orleans was my second favorite Real World's. My favorite is Hawaii (it was the first one I ever saw). I hated all the rest except for Las Vegas which was just alright. Hollywood was the worst.

Don't forget all the free booze you can handle (or more than you can handle). The producers like to get them drunk because that's when the real fun, interesting television
begins.

Atlanta. All the reality show done there so far College Hill, Real Housewives, Kiesha Cole, Being Bobby Brown have been pretty good. They always wind up being dramatic, funny and interesting. But you're probably right. Too black for MTV.

They can watch as MI's economy crumbles as the Big 3 struggle to stay afloat. They can see the homeless everywhere. They can taste the despair in the air. They can see the ruin that Detroit has become. That, my friends, is the REAL WORLD, not some pampered, drunk idiots making fools out of themselves on MTV. They wouldnt last a month in Detroit.
You make it sound all yuppies are to blame. People on MTV reality shows, from what I saw of the season in Austin (unless it's staged, which I doubt) are rarely the crème de la crème.
