Real World casting for season 22, wants student government, RAs, EMTs to apply

With The Real World Brooklyn in production and pissing off the neighbors, the show’s production company has already started casting for the next season, which will be number 22.

Like last season, when producers looked for activists and people with “depth,” the press release and casting information says they “are specifically seeking people with the following attributes,” although “they ARE NOT a requirement”:

“Leadership experience (student government, college resident advisor, job manager, camp counselor), musical ability, seasoned travelers who speak Spanish, lifesaving skills (lifeguard, EMT), athleticism (particularly water sports).

Those interested can attend open casting calls, which will be held well into October, mail in a video, or just upload a casting video online on Bunim/Murray’s (awful, joke of a) web site.

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.
