Real World Brooklyn cast photographed, described

The cast of The Real World Brooklyn took a break from annoying their neighbors to attend a Semi Precious Weapons show at Rebel. They were photographed by the Village Voice, which identifies as much information as they have about several cast members.

The paper reports that “spectators went apeshit” over their presence, and that the cast members “took photo after photo of themselves, but wouldn’t pose for actual portraits.” Photographer Nate “Igor” Smith interacted with the cast, and said that, “One guy covered up his mic and told me to shoot anyway, then he removed his hand from the mic and said ‘I am really sorry I can’t pose, but it’s in my contract’ and then he winked at me.”

Those photographed are Chet, the “engaged virgin Mormon”; Sarah, who’s tattooed and pierced and “the only one who seems to belong in Brooklyn”; and a brunette female who the Voice calls “Tacky Tanning Fiend” who got “ready to make out with Semi Precious Weapons frontman Justin Tranter.”

There’s also a woman who the Voice says “kept grabbing her boobs and talking about how they were 34-DD’s”; the “Congenial Rube” who “likes to laugh. Yee-haw”; and “Frat Boy Player” who one person at the concert said “was all over three different girls at least” but “seemed like a good guy,” according to Voice photographer Smith.

Elsewhere, a Vevmo poster has composited several photographs, including the Voice’s, and identified the cast members as Kate, Sarah, Bella (pronounced “baya”), Devyn, Scott, Ryan, JD, and Chet.

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.
