Real World Austin cast photographed.
Two things we know about The Real World Austin cast: They’re really good at sticking their faces in front of non-MTV cameras, and they are no strangers to liquor. Also, they kind of look exactly like the casts from the past few seasons.’s cast sightings photo gallery shows the cast around their house, but mostly they’re socializing and posing for pictures with, presumably, complete strangers. I wonder if they still pretend they’re working on a “project,” or if they just dispense with that and scream to anybody in earshot, “Hey! I’m on The Real World! Who wants to take my fucking picture? Woo! Here’s to an endless career of college campus visits and Real World/Road Rules Challenge appearances! Rock on!”
