Real World Vegas cast will reunite for six-episode series

The cast of The Real World Las Vegas will reunite for a six-episode series that will be filmed in the exact same $2 million suite at The Palms as the series was five years ago.

The MM Agency, which reps show cast members, says on its blog that the “cast in its entirety will be brought back together to live in the same suite at the Palms Casino to film a reunion … on Monday April 14th and last approximately 3 weeks.” The new show will be called The Real World Las Vegas 2.

Citing no sources, the MM Agency says that the season’s breakout media whore, “Trishelle Cannatella[,] was the last holdout of the cast to agree to this reunion as she has been filming several movies as of late.”

Why are they creating a second mini-season of the season that effectively killed the show by focusing only on drinking, hooking up, and fighting? Because a reunion of another cast fell through, of course. “Originally Bunim-Murray Productions & MTV were trying to have a reunion of the Real World Austin cast,” the MM Agency says.

The show initially started filming in February of 2002, and it concluded in June, meaning this reunion season will be filmed pretty much exactly five years from the middle of the original production.

Update: This news was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal last week, The Real World/Road Rules blog notes.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
