real-world-logo.jpgCan someone explain to me how we arrived at casting for the 20th season of MTV’s The Real World? I mean, I can remember when this show premiered. Granted, I was 14 — but damn!

Then again, I should not be dating myself with reality television programs.

Regardless, with the eighteenth season having just finished up on television, the producers are now turning their attention to casting and developing the twentieth. Already in the works and under construction are plans to make this version of The Real World as eco-friendly as possible. From the article,

““The Real World” house will include everything from solar energy solutions to bamboo flooring, recycled glass counters, some sustainable furniture and recycled vintage décor, energy star appliances, a solar heated swimming pool and energy efficient lighting. Additionally, Bunim-Murray Productions has taken measures to reduce its environmental impact by adopting more environmentally-sound production practices on set. They also are working towards making the production and show carbon-neutral by offsetting remaining carbon emissions after these carbon reducing measures are applied. Eco-friendly elements will be added on a regular basis throughout production and within the show, including products seen with the cast and around the house…”

Kudos to MTV and Bunim-Murray — especially because The Real World continues to be an influence on the younger generation. As long as Puck doesn’t f**k things up with a cameo, this should be a great upcoming season.
