Why hasn't there been one yet? Where do you think the house would be set up? Do you think there will be one in the future? Would you try out?

I don't think they'll ever have a Real World here, there are just too many other more exciting options. However, if they did they would probably live in the Carlylse in downtown Minneapolis, or in one of the fancy newer condo developments in Uptown. If it ever were to happen would I try out? Absolutely not. Well I'm too old for that now anyways, what's the age limit, like 22?

I heard they already did one, but that they do two at one time and then pick the better of the two. Minneapolis was one that didn't get picked.

They considered Minneapolis, but it wasn't chosen. It seems they pick warmer locales (the production crew probably prefers balmy weather!). I think Chicago was an exception. (Not counting NYC...even though it does get cold there). I personally think Minneapolis would make a fabulous location!! There's so much to do here!

I think Minneapolis would be a great city for them to have it in, granted they'd have to do it in the summer.

I think them not picking Minneapolis has less to do with it not being "exciting" enough, and more to do with the challenges of filming a show in a regional city.

I once read an article about how they choose their locations, and they said trying to do the show in smaller "big cities" is tougher because of all the attention they get from the locals, wheareas in a city like New York they're able to blend in a shoot the show without too much attention or problems.

Minneapolis is too sophisticated for this trash. Stop wasting your life watching scripted "reality" television.

Zenarcade is right. The small big cities give too much attention. Maybe if there was more filming that went on like in the 90's.

But Denver and Austin have had them. Denver is comparable in size to Minneapolis and Austin is even smaller.
