Philly cast got XV tattoos and got “attached to” products in the house.
The cast of The Real World Philadelphia really, really got into their experience. Karamo, one of the men who may or may not be coming out this season, tells the Philadelphia Inquirer, “I didn’t think it was going to be such an emotional ride, and it really was. I thought it was going to be more surface, but it’s really deep. I think this process has changed all our lives forever.” It was so “deep” that all the cast members except Willie now have “XV” tattoos on their bodies commemorating the 15th season of the show. Also, in a press release, Chaplin notes that the cast became so attached, that they even fell in love with products placed in the house, specifically the video phone: “We never thought how much the cast members would become attached to the VisiFone.”
