MTV will air Real World awards show, roast

Before the 20th season of The Real World debuts, MTV will air an awards show and roast of its first reality show. “The Real World Awards Bash: Roast ‘Em and Toast ‘Em” will air March 29 and will feature cast members from all 20 seasons, some of whom will receive awards following a viewer vote online.

The show will be both “a blow-out festivity of hijinks, hilarity and high-drama” and “will focus on how ‘The Real World’ influenced pop culture and created a trend in reality programming. Retrospective packages will highlight the funniest and most dramatic moments and show how the series has brought attention to socially- important causes, including AIDS, racism, homophobia, addiction, abortion and eating disorders,” according to an MTV press release.

Viewers can vote online for “hottest female,” “hottest male,” “best fight,” “steamiest scene,” “best brush with the law,” and other awards. You know, all those socially important parts of the series.
