Pictures of the Real World cast are up for charity on EBay

Someone connected with the Key West cast (or someone who stopped by and shot a picture of two castmembers) is selling a picture of two of the castmembers for charity. (She's trying to become Queen of Fantasy Fest by raising money for charity.) If you go to the bid page, you'll see the censored picture of two castmembers in their bathing suits sitting on a car. The one on the right is presumably Tyler, who also has a better shot here. If you want the glory that is a picture of two castmembers and an Elizabeth Taylor perfume set, be prepared to shell out at least $150.00.

Injunction may cause producers to pull out of Key West and relocate cast

There have been several posts regarding the legal troubles surrounding the new season of the Real World currently being filmed in Key West. Well according to an article posted at, the two sides met in court yesterday. If the injunction is granted to stop filming the show, MTV might pull the show from Key West altogether. Check out the article for details.

Dammy and Melinda talk about filming the reunion; 18th Season of the Real World is casting

Both Danny (Austin) and Melinda (Austin) were both at an appearance at the University of Texas - Arlington yesterday. They both confirmed that they will be heading off to film the Challenge on the 15th. In other news, they revealed that they will be filming the Austin reunion special (to be aired in late November) tomorrow, most likely in the MTV TRL studios in Times Square.

Also, I'm getting word that BMP is currently casting for its eighteenth season of the Real World. Although Key West is still being filmed right now, I've been told that the eighteenth season will begin filming in February. City frontrunners? Sydney, Atlanta, Washington DC and Minneapolis.

Katie and Derrick will be on this upcoming Challenge; Producers faced with the challenge of mixing it up

Katie (The Quest) confirmed a long time ago, via her MySpace, that both she and Derrick (Extreme) will be leaving for the upcoming Challenge, which begins production this Saturday, October 15 in Australia. Other participants? Danny (Austin), Johanna (Austin), Melinda (Austin) and Wes (Austin) are all confirmed.

So what's with this eleventh installment of the Challenge? Well, as inviting former castmembers back to challenge each other became difficult following the cancellation of Road Rules... Bunim-Murray decided to start casting for the what they called the "Fresh Meat Challenge". This new Challenge will supposedly pit former Real World and Road Rules alumni against a fresh-faced team of nobodies. A few months ago, Derrick (Extreme) appeared in television ads encouraging "newbies" to forgoe the Real World and Road Rules experience and go straight to the Challenges.

So what does this mean for the series? Nobody, except, of course, the production crew know what role the "newbies" will play. On Maximum Velocity Tour, The Quest and Campus Crawl the roadies faced-off or participated in a task with a group of nobodies who were selected in a sweepstakes from Of course, trash-talking or hook-ups usually ensued, but they were never considered to be a full-fledged part of the cast, since they were only included in one or two episodes.

As for this upcoming Challenge, it is unclear whether producers have decided to have a regular, consistent set of "newbies" challenge the group of alumni they are inviting back. For all we know, they potentially could have rotating groups after each individual mission. What's also important however, is how loyal viewers will welcome the "newbies". Very little exposition is done on the Challenges. Storylines from castmembers' first appearances on The Real World and Road Rules tend to set up the exposition needed for the Challenges. Viewers are familiar with and excited about former castmembers returning to reality television. Will the "newbies" be accepted by viewers as regular castmembers? Will the Blog update you on the latest news and information about the "newbies"? Will BMP ask the "newbies" back for new installments of the Challenge as they do for regular alumni?

Only time will tell. It all depends on production. Our guess is that since a casting call went out for this Challenge, expect to see a regular group of "newbies" to stay and challenge the alumni. What does that mean? Probably way more time getting to know the "newbies", less time on the Challenge itself and more drama between the two teams (mostly because the alumni will feel like this is their Challenge and they should win it). But, of course, all this considering if this really does end up becoming the format of the show. Expect more news to leak when production starts up this Friday.
