The cast of MTV’s The Real World has been thrown into their new green digs — and their initial impressions were mixes of awesome and confusion. It’s pretty funny to see one of the guys attempt to use the computer, only to realize that it needs someone riding a bike to charge it up first.

Thankfully, the cast got their own personal “green team” in the form of Summer Rayne Oakes and Think MTV’s Pete Griffin to take them on a tour and educate them in all the cool eco-friendly elements included in the home. We learn about the sustainable furniture, cool salt-water pool, recycled water from the AC units, solar panels, gardens, dual-flush toilers, and, oh yea, some sexy uses for soy candles.

Even more amusing is how the guys practically fall over themselves chatting it up with Summer. Methinks there may be future requests to get her back for some more green educating. The first vid is below, with more available here.
