Real World appears headed to Portland
MTV’s The Real World looks to be filming its 28th season in Portland, Oregon. Top Chef is taping its 10th season in Seattle, meaning a lot of reality TV activity in the Pacific Northwest, which lasted hosted the MTV series in 1998.
Last month, blogger Byron Beck claimed that the show would be going to Portland, but offered no evidence until, about a month later, he posted the show’s logo. Yesterday, he posted a Facebook photo of a building, speculating that it would be used as the show’s house. Another person posted a photo from a neighboring building that shows the roof of the presumed house, where it looks like a hot tub is being installed.
The Real World sleuths at Vevmo offer additional, much more clear, evidence, including job postings for Bunim-Murray Productions PAs and construction permits for 338 NW 9th Ave that identify it as a “temporary dwelling unit for TV production.”
