THE REAL WORLD
CANCUN Act One!!

Published at: June 24, 2009, 4:10 a.m. CST

I am – Hercules!!

Lucky lucky cast of “Real World 22.” MTV could have shipped them off to live in Beirut or Brooklyn or Wasilla or Darfur, but instead this latest crop gets to live in a swanky ocean-view Cancun penthouse.

Here’s the season’s opening, which focuses on the boyfriend of castmember Jonna (above) pointedly NOT asking her over and over if she’s going to cheat on him in Mexico. I wonder what’s going to happen … Find out more about the new cast here. See if your gaydar is sensitive enough to pick out the non-breeder without reading the bios. And remember. The talkbackers who claim never to have followed a reality show are trying to make people forget that time mom caught them masturbating to “Breaking Bonaduce.” 10 p.m. Wednesday. MTV.

    fake scenarios that only a complete fool would call plausible. MTV just needs to rot away. And the video says no longer available. Hmph.

    by Castiel

    that was until i had the epiphany that they were fucking crap, dumbing down television for the masses. phew, close escape, glad i came to my senses. others however.. they just couldn't get past it.

    Fuck this, Real World Bombay. Outsource the show.

    Most of the tech is already outsourced. Get the cast jobs at a call center.

    Where's the obit for McMahon?

    by American Mythos

    Ed McMahon that is. Am I missing it in tiny text on the main site somewhere? Am I just illiterate? The man was a television icon for decades, was one of the most memorable faces/voices in America, and was the inspiration for one of the greatest lines in movie history -- "Here's Johnny!" from The Shining. Where's the respect?

  • June 24, 2009, 8:03 a.m. CST

    Who the fuck cares?

    by rfid

    Reality shows are for morons. Why the hell does AICN cover this shit? I can't believe more than a handful of the readers here are that desperate for entertainment that they'd actually find crap like The Real World enjoyable. Maybe I'm naive, but I like to believe people's IQs are higher than that.

  • June 24, 2009, 8:55 a.m. CST

    But do they have to battle Mexican drug lords?

    Oh wait, that would be Survivor: Cacun.

    MTV is pretty much unwatchable

    by turketron_2

    Aside from that stunt show and Rob Dyrdeck(sp?)'s Fantasy Factory, MTV is an unwatchable mess. It sucks that it's one of the few channel numbers that I have memorized, so I end up surfing over to it every now and then. VH1 is shit too, but at least their trash reality shows and the stuff with D-list celebrities that offer opinions on those countdown shows are entertaining background noise. Fuck MTV and fuck The Real World (probably the most inappropriate title for what that show actually is).

  • June 24, 2009, 9:54 a.m. CST

    Even as much as I dug this series...

    by Shermdawg

    ...I just can't support it's network anymore. Wish you'd join us Herc. At least until MTV gets it's act together.

    Needs an all ladyboy season

    by turketron_2

    Or at least a season where all the chicks are actually shemales and so passable that none of the guys know until it's too late and are already under the sheets and drunk off their asses. The Real World: Trannysurprise Season! DO IT.

  • June 24, 2009, 4:17 p.m. CST

    or, call it TRAP HOUSE

    by turketron_2

    I'd watch.

  • June 24, 2009, 4:18 p.m. CST

    of course, then T.I. might sue

    by turketron_2

    Still a good idea.

    Seriously, have the BF's/GF's of the RW cast never seen the show

    by RobertBaron

    They always cheat! Even the mormons or religious nutcases. They go on the show and by the first commercial break they're all in the hot tub fucking. It's the same every season.

  • June 25, 2009, 12:41 a.m. CST

    Wasn't this a movie?

    Wasn't there some Real World movie that came out a few years ago and bombed?

    by masteryoda007

    WTF?

  • June 25, 2009, 3:56 a.m. CST

    Everyone involved in this show.....

    by masteryoda007

    Do not have a fucking clue what the real world is like? They all live in some knind of MTV fantasy world. I would not piss on any of these turds, especially if they were on fire. I blame MTV for the decline of intelligence in modern society.

    MTV sucks, as does everyone who watches it

    by FlandersBum

    It says a lot about a network when all of it's movie awards go to 'Twilight'. Unless you are a 12 year old girl, you have no business watching it. Seriously. Just stop promoting anything on that abortion of a network. Now. Please.

  • June 25, 2009, 7:24 a.m. CST

    Flanders...

    by BangoSkank

    The fact that you even know what piece of shit swept the MTV "movie awards" says a bit about you. <p> I only clicked on this link to hopefully see people ripping the shit out of this show.

  • June 25, 2009, 3:29 p.m. CST

    Everyone on that show cheats!

    by lockesbrokenleg

    The show is made to be that way or else no one would watch. They are shallow, uninteresting people.Back in the day, this show was classy. Now it's just web cam shit.

    The Real World has definately changed over the years

    by NoCalFlicks

    I admit I am a sucker, I still watch the show. Make fun of me all you want, it can't be as bad as what my friends say. Anyways, the show has definately changed over the years and I would say the changed happened with Real World Vegas, before that there was at least some relevency to the show, it actually took 7 young 20-somethings search for something more in life and stuck them in a house together to live for four months. Once Vegas happened, it became a mission of the producers to try and find seven strangers that would drink and have sex and that's pretty much it. That is really all there is to the show anymore.

  • June 26, 2009, 2:08 p.m. CST

    So much of television and

    by bobbofatz

    entertainment in general is mindless. To call out the Realworld for being that way is a little captain of the obvious. Just check it out for a minor lesson in sociology and the hot little bitches.

    What's with that broad's horrible tattoo?

    by Watching_Teri_Hatcher_Take_A_Shit

    I'm assuming she's empty-headed?

  • June 28, 2009, 4:51 p.m. CST

    The broad's horrible tattoo

    by darthsynn

    She's just one example of this country's "everyone else is doing it" attitude. These days it's abnormal for someone to NOT have a tattoo.

  • June 28, 2009, 4:54 p.m. CST

    Oh yeah...

    by darthsynn

    I'm sure she'll cheat on her boyfriend. But of course she'll find some way to make it his fault that she did. Women make me sick.

    The Real World: Cannibal Style

    by ClarenceBeaks

    Have the cast locked in a room. The only way to survive is to be last person standing. To win you have to kill and eat the others. Ratings bonanza.
