MTV’s The Real World on Facebook Watch

The reimagined series expands on connecting people from wildly divergent backgrounds to find common ground on the issues that often divided them. These upcoming versions will live up to the revolutionary promise of offering “the true story of seven strangers, picked to live in a house, work together and have their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop being polite… and start getting real.”
As part of the interactive reality series on Facebook Watch, fans will be empowered through platform tools to engage with each of the new seasons through the official Facebook Group, Premieres and Watch Party. Each region’s Real World season will come to life through Facebook Stories and multiple drops throughout the week.
About the Library Seasons
· Austin (Season 16): Viewers were entranced with Danny falling in love with Melinda at first sight; then shocked when he tried to defend his hot-headed housemate, Nehemiah, outside a bar and almost lost an eye; and then saddened when cameras captured him getting the call from his dad that his mom had died. Rachel, the Iraq war vet, had major issues with Neheimiah; and cocky fratboy Wes liked collecting ladies’ numbers but had his heart set on Peruvian roommate, Johanna.
· Key West (Season 17): It is ominously telling that the season kicked off with the cast being evacuated by Hurricane Katrina- because this season was a constantly swirling storm of drama and hijinks – and its ultimate force of nature reality-star-in-the-making personality was irrepressible, charming, outrageous life-of-the-party prankster Johnny “Bananas” who would become one of the most popular Real World alums of all time on The Challenge. Whether they were dealing with hurtful gossip and “burn books,” bravely facing therapy, or confronting each other’s work ethics when they are tasked with running a tanning salon, these colorful roommates made their escapades into edge-of-your-seat viewing. Other cast fan-favorites from the season are Paula Meronek and Tyler Duckworth.
· Portland (Season 28): In addition to the usual roommate bed hopping, conflicts and secrets; this season features a cast member leaving early and another housemate, Nia, who is “quite possibly the most outrageous in Real World history” and reportedly uses “psychological and sexual warfare” against a fellow cast member. Nia doesn’t enter the picture until episode 4, but the scene stealer seriously changes the game.
