The Real World Paris debuts tonight.
The second overseas version and 13th season overall of MTV’s staple show debuts tonight when The Real World Paris airs at 10 p.m. The cast includes only one non-American cast member, unlike the last overseas season, which took place in London. Cast member Mallory tells the Chicago Sun-Times that they “weren’t totally aware of what was going on” politically between France and the U.S. while they were there. The LA Times’ review says “this season’s cast has all the right ingredients for extreme watchability.”
