Real World 10 cast names and faces revealed, house profiled.
First, Tubescan has published an image of a scanned postcard that reveals the new cast’s names and faces. Three of the cast members share names with previous cast members: Rachel, Kevin, and Mike. Also, a profile in yesterday’s New York Times focusing primarily on the water-themed design of The Real World 10‘s New York loft (located at 632 Hudson Street) has some interesting revelations about the cast and season. Cast member Mike, 20, says, “Everyone was here every night.” And during the production, a cast member told the Times, “they’re leading their lives, and mine is pretty dull.” Doesn’t sound like great news.
