The Real World: San Diego (2011)

As of today, the only official production of any of the three shows is the 26th season of The Real World. Road Rules has not been renewed since the ill-conceived Viewers' Revenge and MTV has not yet announced whether or not they will renew The Challenge series after the currently airing Rivals.

So, appropriately, the first blog post would be about the The Real World: San Diego (2011). After the last two seasons revisited old locales, producers are heading toward a mansion in the ritzy La Jolla neighborhoods of San Diego:

The 6,845 square foot, five bedroom, six bathroom house is only minutes away from the popular Mission Beach neighborhood and is currently filming (Real World Houses). And what would be a spoiler post be without some hint of the cast? Vevmo has one of the best rundowns of the seven strangers:

Alexandra Govere, 21 - Los Angeles, CA
Ashley Kelsey, 24 - Winstead, CT
Frank Sweeney, 22 - Canasota, NY
Nate Stodghill, 22 - Grain Valley, MO
Priscilla Mendez, 19 - San Diego, CA
Samantha McGinn, 21 - Chesapeake, VA
Zach Nichols, 23 - Brighton, MI

Two interesting tidbits about the cast pop out immediately. First, most of the cast is over the age of 21. This actually has been the norm in the later seasons of Real World, especially since the focus on the cast has shifted more toward a partying atmosphere. Although 18 to 24-year-olds are eligible to be cast in the show, the cast has heavily featured 21 to 24-year-olds in the past few seasons. In fact, in the last five seasons, Emily (Washington DC), Jonna (Cancun), and Devyn (Brooklyn) were the only castmembers under age during filming. Second, Priscilla (San Diego) is actually from San Diego. In the past, producers have maintained a requirement for filming was that the castmembers could not reside in the town in which the show was being filmed. Melissa (Miami) and Ruthie (Hawaii) resided in Miami and Honolulu, respectively. From the producers' point of view, this created problems as this allowed these castmembers to escape the house and seek the solace of friends and family when times got tough. It comes as a surprise that after more than a decade of production, the producers have lifted this requirement.

Hopefully there is more to come from the new San Diego house. As always, hit me up with news if you have it:

Zach and Ashley just need to chill about the whole gay thing. Its not that serious and I honestly believe that its for show. GET OVER IT GUYS!!

Zach is allowed his own opinion. Ashley and him are getting to know each other and Frank is just so needy and if someone does not believe in what he believes he will cause confrontation. Frank is not a good person. I think Zach and Ashley would be okay with someone else who is gay other than Frank. I love gay people but I DONT like Frank. Frank thinks he was going into the house and everyone was going to like him and he was going to get a family. Not right!
