LMFAO! They could always have it in Pittston so they could be equidistant to both Scranton and Wilkes-Barre! Perhaps they could film it during the annual Pittston Tomato Festival and show them whining about their hair getting messy during the tomato fights?!

Just go on YouTube and look for footage of the Scranton St. Patrick's Day Parade. What do you get when you mix a bunch of blue-collar middle-class Irish-American Catholics with a passion for alcohol with an open invitation to booze all day? You get some very "surprising" results!

Let's not forget "ain't no party like a Scranton party!!!" If it's good enough for "The Office," then why not "The Real World" as well?

Just give them to me with some formaldehyde-soaked rags, handcuffs, Barry White music, and whipped cream, and I'll show them something they'll never soon forget! LOL!

There should be a choice for: "I don't watch that reality TV crap so who cares"

Good grief, just make the show virtual so it can be everywhere. A bunch of teenagers with webcams posting on C-D about cities they barely know or have never been to. "OMG, you guys, the people in that place are sooooo phony, you guys." "I have black friends so I can type n***** anytime I want!" "How can trust you when you were PM'ing behind my back?"

Both good choices but my 1st would be Rome. I found the nightlife among young people facinating there. Also Monte Carlo or Nice would be good.

However, I remember watching it when it was in Chicago and it's always really cool to see your city represented the way the show does. So which city do you think should deserve to do it next and why?
Honestly?

If they had "Real World: Arkansas" I'd probably watch.

They should have a Real World in some small rural town where their job is to farm. Something different and funny like that. I've had enough of them being here in NY. They've overdone it here, that's all I know!!

The farming thing has been done...The Simple Life starring Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. This was undoubtedly one of the worst ideas for a "reality" show.

The Real Life was a decent quality reality show at one point in time. It was the first of it's kind, after all. It has become almost unwatchable because of all the contrived arguing and bi-polarish, immature people. Do they only choose psychos now? And haven't any of those psychos seen previous seasons where others have made the mistake of sleeping with their roommates? It's pathetic.
