Real World Portland cast identified, followed

The Real World‘s 28th season is currently being filmed in Portland, and since the house has been identified, and possibly drunk 20-somethings being followed by camera crews aren’t hard to spot, they are being tracked online.

Vevmo has discussions and photos that identify five of seven cast members, and the cast is also being covered by a Portland gossip blog that includes reports about the cast.

On Twitter, realworldpdx and RealWorldPDXspy aggregate sightings from people in Portland. There is also a blog that reports on the cast’s activities because the blogger lives across the street and has a view of their rooftop space.
