next Real World to be filmed in Paris; Road Rules heads to the South Seas.
MTV’s seminal reality TV show will be filmed in Paris next year. Eight seasons ago, The Real World London took the MTV reality TV show overseas for the first time, and now they’re headed back to Europe for The Real World Paris. The show will be taped in France–“a country where English is not the dominant language,” as reports–starting early next year; it’s currently casting. Also casting is the next Road Rules, which will be taped in the South Seas.
