Is there anything out there to substantiate the rumor?

Seeing as I just found out from my source inside MTV and she doesn't work directly with the show she works on Live Event Specials....She noticed from a company inside "newsletter" couldn't tell me where the house is gonna be or anything she said it was just a little paragraph about the 27 season.

MTV from what I gather (I haven't watched the RW since the original San Diego) like to keep everything on the Down Low so that when the house mates are out and about everything is a "Natural and Reality" as possible....I heard on one of the Reunions the Housemates aren't even allowed to disclose to the public that they're filming for MTV or the Real World.

So I wouldn't look for the Media in town to pick up the story until Filming is near completion, but all will be out in the open well before the season airs I gather. We'll know where the house is, where they've worked, where they hung the most, even where the housemates are from and personalities.

MTV itself probably wont announce anything until a few weeks before the season starts.

Hard to believe people still watch this. Or maybe not. I suppose it's not a lot different than something like Jersey Shore (though I've never seen that). Only one I watched enough to remember is the (first?) London one, which was season 4, and I seem to remember watching a couple early shows in the Miami season after. That's it. That was ages ago. The show just screams 90s to me, not 10s.

Whatever though. If people still watch it, and they're going to do a season here, that's probably cool for added exposure depending upon how it plays.

It's mentioned in an Atlantic Wire story about the last season.

Kinda sucks that they would come years after the show was relevant.

Real World pioneered Reality TV, but crumbled once the Genre became mainstream and sensationalized...I will watch it for the Burgh but I really hope they tweak it and make the Pittsburgh season stand out a little more, try something new and "Original" to Real World.

It waned out of popularity probably sometime circa 2005. I think Jersey Shore was a true deathnail because it basically pissed all over RW and people were more interested in the drama, sluts, and douche bags on JS than RW.

MTV in its purest form (a mecca of music videos) died sometime in the 90s

I actually think they have an opportunity to retool it to make it relevant again, if they want to go that direction. Forget about all the softcore stuff and contrived drama--show these people actually trying to get real jobs. Show them participating in protests. Capture what is really going on among young people today.

I think people might watch that.

I think that unfortunately the Real World is more likely to move in the direction of Jersey Shore. Perhaps without disgracing Italian-Americans so much.

Isn't "tweak(ing) it" how it turned into the crapfest it has become?
