MTV is promoting a 3-way premiere for Wednesday night; Las Vegas is airing now

The Real World: Las Vegas is currently hitting television screens across the nation. (The marathon ends Sunday morning at 5:30am)

So, while re-living a season since passed, we've become inundated with promos for the Denver season. Among other things, MTV is advertising a 3-way season premiere. This might be code for some questionable activity that may occur later on in the season, but it also says to tune in on Wednesday at 8, 9, and 10pm.

On the schedule, they show three one-hour episodes airing back to back. More than likely, what they'll end up doing, is airing the first episode at 8pm and repeat it twice, back-to-back.

Don't forget to check it out! Denver season on Wednesday at 8!

Dan's Denver House Tour is up on Overdrive; He will be booked to host the finale in January

So, every season since Chicago, there's been a reunion in the MTV studios, usually where they host TRL, usually hosted by a VJ.

(Trivia Note: They used to do reunions every couple of years. They did one four seasons into the series and another one ten seasons into the series. After the cast almost staged a revolt during the tenth season reunion, demanding more money, they stopped doing those.)

So, the last few reunions have been hosted by Susie Castillo. She even recently hosted the similar Laguna Beach finale. However, this season, it looks like an alumni will be hosting.

Dan, recently hosted the House Tour which was an On Demand video that has been available to cable subscribers with DVRs for quite awhile. (It is now available on Overdrive.) However, Dan (Miami) recently announced over at his TypePad that he will be hosting the reunion in much of a "talk show" format that they always do. Should be interesting having an alumni interview the cast.

The reunion tapes in January.

In anticipation of the new season, MTV releases On Demand clips onto Overdrive

Since this is the last weekend that you will go "Real World-less" for a considerable amount of time, MTV is releasing a couple of videos that will satiate your appetite. Check them out on Overdrive.

The clips are opened up by Blair (The Quest) who introduces Dan (Miami) and the rest of the clips:

Dan's House Tour: He starts in the living room. He sits in the chairlifts in the living room. Goes over to the "guest bedroom." He checks out the phone room. He checks out the Jeep/converted bar in the living room. The fireplace has a fish tank. He checks out the kitchen. Then he goes up to the bedrooms. The house has an interesting "changing area" behind the beds which you'll see once the season starts. He lays shuffleboard upstairs on the shuffleboard court. He then rolls around the C-couch. He looks at the office and ridicules its use and the books behind the desk. He then goes to the bathroom, which has four sinks, two toilets and two huge open showers with six showerheads. He also says this is the first house to have a gym, which is untrue, a couple of houses have had gyms including San Diego and Hawaii. Then he goes to the confessional and it's potential to hook-up. Then he checks out the basketball court/courtyard which has an endless pool and the hot tub.

Mile High Clubbin': The tour begins in front of Coors Field, which is front of the house. He then checks out LoDo's and they basically say they were loud and drunk. He interviews the Tavern and they say they ordered six shots in two minutes. Next, he's over to Tryst, which ridiculed them for not tipping, breaking things, throwing glass at servers, etc., He's then over to the Rock Bottom Brewery where the waitress seemed out of it, but she did mention that they drank.

High Altitude, Bad Attitude: This is a odd video. It starts of with sweeping shots of the Rocky Mountains, intertwined with the castmembers fighting. Then slowly, they begin introudcing a storm over the mountains, with some footage of castmembers fighting and yelling at each other.

Two local papers detail the upcoming Denver season which premieres on Wednesday

We're less than a couple days away from the premiere of The Real World: Denver. Local newspapers are busy publicizing the new season.

The Rocky Mountain news has a pretty extensive section on the Real World. They also published four new articles yesterday, detailing the places the Denver cast went, an overview of the past fourteen years of the Real World, biographies of each of the castmembers and a look at the Denver house. they also list older articles for you to enjoy.

The Denver Post also posts in their style section, a wonderful expose on the house itself. Complete with pictures.

In other news, yet unpublished news, I'm being told that Entertainment Weekly is doing a short blurb on the Denver season that ridicules the "slutty, drunkness" of the series in mad libs form. It's a bit comical. That issue comes out next Friday.

Don't forget, Alex, Brooke, Colie, Davis, Jenn, Stephen and Tyrie will be gracing your television screens this upcoming Wednesday night. Also, The Las Vegas marathon starts tonight.

Overdrive posts a new video detailing the most criminally insane moments of the series

Randy (San Diego) and Leah (Paris) are back as the countdown hosts, with a brand new countdown, detailing the castmembers brush with the law. Here's a lowdown of the countdown:

5) Nehemiah (Austin) is arrested for a fight. Johanna (Austin) is arrested for stealing a rose.

4) Karamo (Philadelphia) is patted down by the Philadelphia police for suspected of having a gun.

3) Jo (San Francisco) calling the police in the Gauntlet II because she freaks out after she sees what gos on in th Challenges.

2) Derrick (Extreme) is taken into custody for hitting a tree with the RV in Chile.

1) Robin (San Diego) is arrested for assault against a marine. Brad (San Diego) is arrested for public intoxication.

Go and check it out at Overdrive.

The Real World: Las Vegas marathon airs tomorrow in the wee hours of the morning

So, if you're a die hard Las Vegas fan, you can check out the entire season tomorrow. MTV will play the season, in its entirety, beginning at 7PM. The only thing is that it will play the season well into the wee hours in the morning, so get out your VHS tapes or DVRs if you want to record it. This brings out memories of the MTV of yesteryear which used to air multiple seasons whenever a new season premiered. Probably in fear of being called "The Real World" network, because they no longer air music videos, they don't do that anymore.

So, catch your Las Vegas seven as they live it up in the Palms Hotel/Casino. Just a little side note, this is probably the first sensationalized season of The Real World, where the focus really changed to the partying instead of the dynamics between the seven roommates. That being said, it's probably the best season of the "partying" Real Worlds. I remember it being a little drawn out because this was the first season with an extended amount of episodes. However, there are some great moments in there: the threesome between Trishelle, Steven, and Brynn, the "fork" incident, the creepy boss who tries to hook up with all the girls, the Alton/Irulan relationship, the Arissa/Frank fight while Frank is hooking up in the confessional, the Alton/Irulan confrontation about him having a threesome. There's just some great moments in this season. Plus, it's in Vegas!

Also, this is one of the only seasons which you can actually purchase, so if you really end up liking it, you can buy it. It begins at 7PM on Saturay. The season finale will air on Sunday morning at 5:30AM.

Aftershow: "Tenderoni" visits Blair and is teased for his relationship with Beth

Nehemiah (Austin) said the Challenge was pretty overwhelming, having all the outlandish personalities, knowing your names, and ready to battle it out. Wes (Austin) tried to help out telling him not to get people angry.
Unlike, Fresh Meat, Nehemiah didn't feel that he was targeted, because Key West was targeted. Until they were voted out. Blair also makes fun of how Beth and him met before the show for the Reality TV Calendar. He aligned up with Beth because of what he knew of her. He didn't want to hate her because he didn't like the "high school" vibe. He admits to cuddling with Beth, while Blair is laughing while Nehemiah compares Beth to warm apple pie. Beth was one of the only people he could talk to.

Nehemiah learns that "money is the root of all evil." When there's that much money at stake, he invokes the snake analogy again.

Then the basket game:

Wes: is his "boy", he deserves to win because of his work ethic, they'll be friends forever especially if he wins.

John (Key West): his name says it all. He doesn't seem like he's very fond of him. He takes a shot at him. He doesn't like him and he tells him to his face. "Too loud for his own good." Doesn't have anything intelligent to say. He got play more than everyone in the short time he was there.

Svetlana (Key West): She was cute. People are underestimating her because people thought she was stupid, but she was playing the game well. Then they talk about Fitz wearing a bikini and get all excited.

Eric (Fresh Meat): They're friends. He's a really cool guy, happy guy, enjoys life.

Evan (Fresh Meat): He likes Evan. They had a conservation with Wes and Evan where they shoot him down.

Diem (Fresh Meat): He related to Diem because his cousin passed away from cancer.

Beth (Los Angeles): "Sweet irony", he draws himself into a corner and says that he saw her naked, and was pleasantly surprised.

Nehemiah gets a XBOX360, which is kinda weird since everyone else got a free plane ticket for two wherever they wanted in the continental United States.

The Sh*^ You Didn't See: Wes making fun of Eric's high fives, Nehemiah criticizes Kenny, Nehemiah, Kenny, Evan, Eric and CT sidestepping in a bar.

Duel Episode #6: Let the scrambling begin, the girls partner with the boys, Diem doesn't save Eric, "Tenderoni" goes home

So now that the newest alumni are gone (aka Key West) everyone is getting a bit worried as to which alliance will be targeted next. If you're paying attention, there's three alliances: 1) the "tenderoni" alliance (Beth (Los Angeles), Nehemiah (Austin), Wes (Austin), Aneesa (Chicago), Svetlana (Key West))); 2) the "drama mafia" (CT (Paris), Diem (Fresh Meat), Derrick (Extreme), Kina (Extreme), Jodi (Extreme), Robin (San Diego), and to some extent Brad (San Diego)); and there's 3) the "Fresh Meat" alliance (Evan (Fresh Meat), Eric (Fresh Meat)) It's readily apparent that the Fresh Meat alliance, being the smallest, will be targeted first. But there's varying degrees of loyalty between the alliances: Diem is a part of the "Fresh Meaters", Brad is more of a floater and Robin pulls him into the "Drama Mafia" (same thing with Derrick and Kina, Svetlana is more of an outsider as well.)

So with the strategy lesson posted above, it becomes evident that since there isn't really any smaller groups to target, it's likely that the alliances will implode on themselves and people will start going home. This sends everyone into a tizzy. Because there are less people to choose to go into the Duel, it becomes apparent that the alliances will have to battle it out against each other.

When the mission comes up, the guys are mega-critical of the girls, namely because the girls performances heavily affect the guys. Evan picks Kina, who after he doesn't express the greatest amount of confidence in because she is a "lot of talk", propels him to victory with her quick time. Eric interestingly chose Beth. Anyway, the pecking order is set off with the "drama mafia" being picked first as Evan chooses Kina. The last guy chosen was Wes. Diem makes this choice, which she presumes pisses Eric off because they are in an alliance together. The last two guys are Nehemiah and Eric, with Beth having to make the decision. Beth says that she doesn't like Eric, and of course, she can't leave out her "tenderoni", she picks Nehemiah. Eric picks Nehemiah, because he's 80% talk.

The two compete in "I Can" and Eric is challened to lift 165 logs. (They max out on the number of logs they can lift, which is kinda weak.) Anyway, Eric pulls through and sends "tenderoni" home. Next week, the "tenderoni" alliance will be faced with dwindling numbers, especially since there is only one guy left on that alliance.

Duel Spoiler Alert #6: Will the "tenderoni" alliance be broken down or will another Fresh Meater be sent home?

The question of the day, the question of the day. The promos obviously show that Nehemiah (Austin) and Eric (Fresh Meat) are going head to head in this Duel. The pecking order has left Fresh Meat out in the cold, as the other alumni have formed alliances and such to protect them.

We see that Eric picks Nehemiah to face off against him in the Duel. The question is: Will the "tenderoni" alliance live to see another day or will Eric return to battle it out once again in the Duel?

Beth (Los Angeles) posts on her MySpace regarding the alliances and such. She also posts that they won't show much of the romance.

(Highlight to read:) Beth also makes it seems that Nehemiah won't be beat this week and suggests that the realtionship might be shown in future weeks. Nehemiah is sent home this week from the Duel. The "tenderoni" alliance will crash and burn. This is the beginning of it.

According to an interview with Get Real Denver, Brooke was casted on MySpace

So, there's been this small posting on the Bunim-Murray website, stating that there are agents all over MySpace scowering profiles to cast for their shows.

Brooke (Denver) granted an interview with Get Real Denver in which she states that she was casted via MySpace. Now, this begs the question of how that actually works. I don't know who does the casting via MySpace, nor do I think that they want to publicize their profile. Nevertheless, Brooke is evidence that it does happen. She also suggests that her casting process was relatively short and she didn't go through the extensive interviews that her roommates did.

Brooke also talks somewhat about the nightlife in Denver and a little about her roommates, but of course, she doesn't give away anything major about the season.

Davis gives an interview in the Advocate where he compares himself to New Orleans' Danny

Being the "token gay guy", Davis (Denver) did an interview with the Advocate.

They start out the interview discussing how he was cast as the "gay character" on The Real World, but he largely felt that he didn't fit that role, mostly because he considers himself to be a "straight gay guy." This obviously begs a comparision to Danny (New Orleans), who if you remember, came to the house with a "secret", and didn't want the housemates to know of his sexuality right away.

Davis also talks about his relationship with Stephen (Denver) and also implies that the two are the closest of friends, even though the promos suggest somewhat of a different tone of their friendship. Davis also discusses his extensive past as a member of the Baptist faith and how that caused turmoil for him as an adolescent.

Westword Magazine does a brief article on the seven strangers before they join the ranks of alumni

The same magazine that pulled off the Real World prank, making people believe they were the Denver cast simply by having cameras follow them around bars in and out of Denver, has posted an article detailing what they think of the seven strangers. (The above trick even fooled Holly (Latin America), who was in a bar in Denver during the trick and even came over to introduce herself.)

Check out the article here. They actually got to meet the cast and the impressions are, well, the impressions aren't so great. This is part of the local journalists who didn't want the Real World in Denver.

Check it out, it's an interesting read.

In anticipation for the Denver season, Real World: Las Vegas marathon is this Saturday

In anticipation for the Denver season, which starts next week, MTV will be airing a marathon of Real World this coming Saturday.

A couple of weeks ago, MTV conducted an online poll to see which season of the Real World viewers preferred most to see. The winner? Las Vegas

Yes, revisit one of Real World's most arguably popular seasons where Alton, Arissa, Brynn, Frank, Irulan, Steven and Trishelle live it up in the Palms hotel and casino. And after that gets you, be sure to tune into the Denver season with none other than Alex, Brooke, Colie, Davis, Jenn, Stephen and Tyrie coming Wednesday November 22nd.

Road Rules 14 website is up; MTV is asking YOU who do you want to see behind the wheel of the RV

Road Rules 14 is currently in pre-production.

We announced here that the roadies would be headed back onto your tv screens and six alumni would be behind the wheel. MTV just opened up their website for Road Rules.

Right now, the site is just bare content. There's a photo travelogue from South Pacific up, but more importantly, the network is asking who do you want to see behind the wheel of the RV this coming January. Very much like our own poll we conducted.

Although they might be more concerned with which Roadies are the favorites, don't expect the most popular Roadies to be selected, as production will probably mix and match between cast favorites and production favorites. Look for Road Rules to debut in January.
