Paris cast never “encounter[ed] any anti-American sentiment.”
The Real World Paris cast never “encounter[ed] any anti-American sentiment” during production, the show’s producer says. Tracy Chaplin talks to the LA Times about the first overseas shoot of the show since London in 1995, and says, “I don’t understand this whole freedom fries, freedom toast thing. We have jerky kids in the States who are mean to us, which is worse than anything we saw in France.” He says the show kept a low profile and was barely noticed by the neighborhood, Le Vesinet, where the house was located. The cast had “implied pressure from home because parents would call and this would lead the cast to question us,” but otherwise he said the cast was unconcerned about world events: “They’re just kids, after all. They were more concerned about what was happening on Friday night.”
