Real World Hollywood cast filmed during improv performance; contest winner may have left

The Real World Hollywood cast performed Wednesday at the Improv in Los Angeles, and they were filmed by both MTV cameras–indicating the show is still in production–and an audience member.

The cast, which is made up of people who are supposed to have entertainment-related career goals, is “part of iO, a west-coast based version of iO Chicago, an improvisational comedy troupe,” according to thejoshplace.com. “One person from the season has already been fired from iO and hence thew [sic] out of the house. Apparently it was Greg Halstead.”

The seven current cast members are identified as Brittini, Will Gill, Kimberly, Dave Sky, Bri Leigh, Nick B, and Sarah. That cast does not include Greg Halstead, the cast member selected by viewers. They performed Wednesday, and thejoshplace.com took video of their performance–and the MTV cameras filming them. The site also says their “[t]heir Improv group is called WTF (I thought What The Fuck), but apparently they are saying it stands for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.”

Here’s the site’s video of the performance, which is perhaps more interesting for the MTV cameras than the actual performance, which is somewhat hard to hear:
