Real World Denver cast reportedly includes two gay people; house photographed

The cast of The Real World Denver includes a gay man and a lesbian, according to Rocky Mountain News columnist Penny Parker.

She also reports that the gay man “will get fully immersed in Denver’s gay scene when he takes a job at JR’s as a bartender’s assistant.” His work as a bar back at “the most popular gay hangout in town” will be paid to work there, but there’s no word if the other cast members will work there too. It’s kind of odd that one cast member would land a job (that’s not the whole cast’s job) before production even begins.

Meanwhile, Denver resident Tim Pennington has photographed the house, which is still identified by the name of the pool hall that used to inhabit the location, B52. Looking at the pictures, this new house, which was revealed last week looks remarkably familiar. In fact, it looks to me like the house in Austin. And the one in Chicago. And the second one in New York. And the house in Boston. They’re not identical, of course, but they’re all nondescript brick buildings, sort of like prisons for media whores.
