Real World Chicago debuts tonight.
Only six weeks after the conclusion of the last season and another one is on the air. The Real World Chicago debuts tonight at 10 p.m. ET, preceded by cast “preview” episode at 9:30. That all-new yet oddly familiar cast includes a homophobic jock (“I don’t mind lesbians. That’s sexy. But dudes, dudes is disgusting.”), an ignorant small-town girl (“Black people intimidate me”), a gay recovering alcoholic (who only reveals his alcoholism at first), and a player black guy (EW says about him: “Theo loves the ladies! Theo hates homos! And Theo loves to party!”). Other coverage and criticism of the new season:
- EW previews the “sexed up, worked up, and messed up” cast.
- the cast “effectively” make themselves “look silly and supremely self-possessed.”
- “They’ve definitely turned up the heat for this installment”
- “Shooting The Real World in Chicago this past summer and fall was a lesson in uncertainty”
