The 20th season of The Real World takes place in Hollywood, California. As always, a group of 20-somethings move in together for a few months and try to get along. From what I致e seen of the new season, getting along doesn稚 always come easy for this group but then again, that痴 the whole point of the show. The Hollywood season looks to be filled with the same kind of drama that we致e seen in previous episodes. Drunken escapades, inter-house hookups and arguments galore.

Here痴 the info on the housemates based on what痴 mentioned about them on MTV痴 website:

Joey, 24 Chicago, IL - Resident muscle-head with a good heart. Joey wants to move past his partying years, which apparently include some addictions.

Kimberly, 24 Columbia, SC - Smalltown blonde who痴 rebelling against her conservative upbringing.

Dave, 22 Waynesboro, PA - The outgoing fun guy. Good at sports and wants to be an actor.

Sarah, 21 Phoenix, AZ - Sarah痴 the token housemate-in-a-relationship. She痴 doing the whole long distance thing and also embracing feminism while trying to maintain her traditional values.

Will, 23 Detroit, MI - Wants to become a music producer. Will痴 the charismatic 斗adies man of the house.

Brianna, 20 Philadelphia, PA - Former stripper, Brianna痴 a tough girl with a sensitive side. She tried out for American Idol in the fifth season and made it as far as Hollywood before getting cut.

Greg, 20 Daytona Beach, FL - Greg was cast by viewers through an online casting contest. He痴 got a bit of an attitude though, which makes it tough for the rest of the house to warm up to him.

I値l be the first to say (though I doubt I am) that I don稚 think The Real World has lived up to the first ten years worth of seasons. That said, as I mentioned earlier, I did get the opportunity to see some of this season and while I still think the show places too much emphasis on 20-somethings getting trashed and hooking up, there痴 something oddly appealing about this kind of mindless drama. Plus their house is really cool this year (it痴 like a movie set).

For me though in general, I can only take The Real World in large binges, like when they do those weekend marathons. So chances are, I値l be holding off on this season until I知 bored on a Sunday afternoon and stumble across the reruns on MTV.
