The Real World Invites Occupy Wall Street Protesters To Try Out For Season 27
Could MTV’s The Real World be looking for people willing to take a stand for what they believe in? It would appear so as the show is apparently trying to entice protesters among the Occupy Wall Street movement to try out for the long-running reality series.
The Observer posted the story, citing a Craigslist ad presumably posted by The Real World’s casting people, inviting protesters of the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York to submit their photo and information if they are “over the age of 20 and appear to be between the ages of 20-24” and fit the description posted.
It’s actually sort of encouraging to see that The Real World might actually be targeting young people with beliefs and principles that extend beyond partying and, to use a phrase from Jersey Shore, “getting it in.” The ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement is said to be a demonstration protesting corporate greed and social inequality. It'd be an interesting topic to tackle on The Real World if the series got people from both sides of the argument into the house for its 27th season.
It’s also interesting to note that they’re inviting people who are over 20 but “appear” to be between 20-24. Does this mean that the 24 age-limit is just for show? Not to get all conspiracy-theory here, but now I’m curious to know if there are any former RW cast members who were over 24 but passed as younger for the sake of the show's age limit.
