For those of you waiting for those Philly promos, MTV has started to air them. There are several different types of promos being aired at this time, but they're not in heavy rotation and probably won't be until the week before the season premieres in September. Probably check MTV.com's website as they will probably update fairly soon.

For those of you hardcore Jon Bon Jovi fans, Another official press release has been released over at Bon Jovi's site confirming that the seven strangers will be working with the Philadelphia Soul. The short bit says that there will be some Jon Bon Jovi and Philadelphia Soul footage, but it is unclear how much will be included. You can probably expect the band frontman not to have a vested interest in the Real Worlders job, but to have a presence similar to that of George Maloof in the Las Vegas season, where Maloof delegated supervision of the seven strangers to someone else... The article posted on the site also tagged on the press release that was at the Soul's webpage (see previous post), which cleared up some confusion which had the Real Worlders working with the Soul's community program after the football season ended during early taping of the show.
