Real World Austin debuts with a street fight with locals

The Real World Austin debuted last night with a literal bang, as Danny got punched in the head by someone in the street and literally broke his face. If you missed the action, the show repeats many times over the next few days.

Danny, the cast member who was hit, told the Boston Herald that, as we saw, Texas wasn’t very friendly at first:

“The people were very, very rude. Everyone wanted a chance to get on camera and make an ass out of themselves. It was tough dealing with the locals. There’s always that bad person who yells at you and ruins your night. I realized after the first episode that I had to be careful. It’s really hard to deal with and it really gets to you.”

Besides the fight, the cast basically talked about banging one another, showered together, drank a lot, and talked about banging one another. This seemed to prove that, after 16 seasons, producers have either forgotten how to tell stories, select cast members who are even vaguely interesting, or amuse me in my apparently very old age.
