Real World

    This is the true story of seven gorgeous strangers picked to live in a beach house in Point Loma and have every moment of their lives taped. Find out what happens when people stop being polite (and sober) and start getting REAL. The ìReal World: San Diegoî has officially begun.

    For its 14th installment, ìReal Worldî producers have picked our beautiful city as the backdrop to MTV’s most popular show. San Diego has been deemed by many as the perfect location for the show. It boasts an exciting nightlife, sun and surf, and close proximity to the Mexican border, which guarantees this season wonít disappoint.

    The electric blue ìReal Worldî house is located at the end of a remote driveway off of North Harbor Road on the water in Point Loma, just a few minutes away from the airport. Many people are surprised that the cast is living in quiet Point Loma, more known for its fishing than its partying, rather than in well-known social areas like Gaslamp District or Pacific Beach or even our very own La Jolla. The house that was used as a restaurant is next to a fish market, which lends its pungent aroma to the entire area. The house has been gutted and refurbished in true ìReal Worldî style and comes complete with a sand volleyball court, a private dock and a speedboat.

    The seven-member cast, composed of four females and three males, range between the ages of 19 to 24 and are mostly from the Midwest and East Coast, with the exception of Jamie, a San Francisco native. The cast is going to work as crewmembers aboard Dennis Connerís old Americaís Cup sail boat, the Stars and Stripes.

    Taping of the show started in late August and already the fab seven have made their presence in San Diego known. They have been spotted all over the area from appearances at this month’s Street Scene to hanging out in Balboa Park to partying with local college students at bonfires on the beach. One of the cast members, Robin, a southern bartender, has already dealt with the San Diego police after getting into a bar brawl at Moondoggies in Pacific Beach with a marine. She was charged with battery and taken to a women’s detention center until she was released on bail.

    Keep your eyes peeled for the banana yellow Toyota Sequoia cruising around with its matching ìReal Worldî surfboards as San Diego lends its sand, sun, and surf to some newcomers. Look out for cameras at hot surf spots, such as Shores, PB, maybe even Blacks.

    Executive producer Jon Murray is excited for the upcoming season, ìSan Diego, with its great beaches and easy-going lifestyle, has long been a hot destination. It only seemed natural that the ëReal Worldí would make it a home for a season.î The show will air in January. Meanwhile, keep your eyes open for MTV cameras at you favorite hangouts.
