Real World Austin cast moves in today.
The cast will be moving in to The Real World Austin house today, about a month after the city was revealed to be the 16th season’s host. That’s according to TV Tome, which reported that the cast arrived yesterday and will move in to the house (located at 302 San Jacinto) today. They’ll be inhabiting the city until June 18; the season will debut shortly after, in early July. The site also reports the names of five cast members: Areula, Freddy, Cheng, Marc, and Dan. Earlier this week, The Austin American Statesman considered places where you’re most likely to run into the cast.
