... of several hundred strangers, trying to get picked to live in a house, work together and have their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop being polite, and start getting real.
Whew. That was really hard to exhume from my TV memory. And I must confess, I had to Google it to make sure I got it right, which should give you an idea of how long it's been since I watched MTV's "The Real World." But that's OK. I figure the audience is primarily made up of people who could ostensibly be on the show, and I moved out of the 18-24 category when I starting thinking about how it would really be very sensible of me to start a 401(k).
But for those of you who spend countless hung-over Saturdays watching "Real World" marathons - and you know who you are - you might be interested to know that the show is having a local casting call at the Library (7042 Folsom Blvd.) on Thursday.
That's right - you could be the next slutty/religious/gay/girl-next-door/uptight stereotype to ever hop in a hot tub on the show! The casting goes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and hopefuls should bring a photo ID, a picture that they don't expect to get back, and like I said, be between 18-24.
As always, they're looking for the kind of people who can't be ignored, the kind of people who really take over a room, and give examples like Teck, Pedro and Melissa as past alumni who really stood out.
The casting coordinator said they try to get up to Northern California each time they're casting, but didn't think they'd been to Sac in quite some time. Which means now's your chance.
Plus, stay tuned for an upcoming 21Q look at where some of the past cast members are now, cause that's just fun.
