Detroit suburb rumored to be next Real World location

Royal Oak, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, may be the location of the next Real World season.

Viacom, MTV’s parent company, “leased 8,812 square feet of space for its MTV network in downtown Royal Oak,” the Oakland Business Review reports. “The space is in the Main North development, which is under construction on Main Street, near 11 Mile Road” and “is categorized as office space.”

The paper calls Royal Oak an “eclectic suburban town.”

Adding fire to the rumors: Detroit hosts the Super Bowl in February. Dampening the rumors: It’s Detroit and it’s cold, and the show hasn’t filmed in a cold climate during the winter since the Boston season.
