The Real World: Skeletons (MTV) - Premieres 12/16/14



Seven strangers move into an old nightclub turned fabulous urban loft in Chicago’s West Loop, looking forward to high times in the Windy City -- leaving their hometowns behind. But each of these roommates has skeletons in their closets – shattered lives, broken relationships, estranged family members, and dark secrets. They soon discover they cannot run away from their past mistakes; unresolved issues and abhorrent behavior will resurface as the ‘last person on earth they wanted to see,’ comes knocking on their door. Each episode, a new skeleton literally arrives on their doorstep to stay in the house, forcing each roommate to deal with their past lives. Visiting skeletons reveal surprising details about each of the seven roommates, exposing their secrets, their loves, and their ultimate desire to overcome the mistakes of their past. Full of tears, laughter, conflict, and romance; this groundbreaking season of Real World will be like no other.


Getting this started a little early... I know there are some fans around here still. Just a heads up.

I'm in for this. The Real World, The Challenge, and Are You The One? are my favorite guilty pleasure shows.

Looks like I was right.

Geez, those girls are awful. They really are casting from the bottom of the barrel these days. Why can't they find some decent humans who aren't just about getting trashed all the time.

When the show started, the people weren't on for the sole reason of being party animals.

They did try for a more tame cast in Brooklyn, and that was I admit boring.

Real World: Las Vegas set the bar low in that regard and the producers stuck with that format.

I believe it all started going downhill when of the producers died.

This is still my top guilty pleasure... but last night was rough to watch. Those girls were insane.

At least Chicago looked nice! I live about 1 mile away from them. Great area they are in!

I used to work two floors above Spybar, the second club they went to last night. Some crazy stories come out of that place.

Caught the premiere last night. Every season the girls seem to get worse and worse. It was almost embarrassing to watch this. What is going on with today's younger generation?? I remember the first season of The Real World & the cast back then almost seemed like adults compared to these idiots or maybe I remember differently because I was a kid when the first season aired. The guys seem normal but the girls all seem loud, obnoxious class-less alcoholics.

Yeah, it seemed like they used to cast a diverse group of people & see what happened. Now the main criteria for casting seems to be "would you like to punch them in the face?"

I'm surprised too that the camera crew is so blatant. While we all know they must be there, it's weird to see them & constantly be reminded that this is a TV show being filmed.

Yeah, they started doing that last season...showing the camera people. It was part of their effort to change the format of the show a bit.

Why does the lesbian from Staten Island have a fake Bahhhhston accent? I'd like to bang the other 3 girls.

These girls are crazy even by RW standards. Hookups, drunken fights and tears all in the first episode.

Any one still watching? I thought that the bathroom rendezvous was pretty funny since it only lasted for 5 minutes and the boom mic operator had the mic nearly up against the door. Violetta is not a very nice person, but I bet she would be fun for a brief fling. The Skeletons arrive next week.
