Real World will show Robin’s arrest.
The big news on last night’s premiere of The Real World San Diego wasn’t the drunken almost make-out between two cast members, nor one of them vomiting while passed out (all caught on tape, of course), nor the other fighting with his girlfriend about their relationship while he’s away (did he never watch a single episode of this show?). We’ve seen all that before. Rather, it was in the preview for next week’s double episode, which showed Robin Hibbard being handcuffed after punching a Marine, which was also caught on tape. The footage also showed Ace, er, Brad also being handcuffed by police. Thus we have an answer to one of the questions about what criminal activity MTV will or will not show.

Review: Married at First Sight

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
