The Real World will be filmed in Denver

People who live in Detroit have another reason to be depressed today, other than the fact that they live in Detroit. That’s because, despite persistent rumors that The Real World was heading to Detroit, the show is going instead to Denver.

Yes, the 18th season of the show will be The Real World Denver, marking a rare journey to the inside parts of the US for the MTV series. The house will be in the LoDo neighborhood, where an “old B-52 nightclub on Market Street is currently undergoing a transformation,” CBS 4 Denver reports.

In one of those flak-written statements, MTV’s Lois Curren says, according to Zap2it.com, “Denver has absolutely everything we could hope for — diversity, activities, energy and nightlife. We’re sure that the character and spirit of this picturesque city will be endlessly compelling to the seven roommates and audience alike.”
