"The Real World" Going Green

"The Real World" Going Green

Somehow, I totally missed this news from a few weeks ago that the next "Real World" house will be a solar-powered green dwelling. According to Broadcasting and Cable, the 20th season of the reality show will be set in Hollywood and have the roomies living in an eco-friendly house, complete with solar panels, energy-efficient lighting, and sustainable materials. Here are some details from the article:

According to MTV, the show will “introduce today’s youth to the ways in which they can incorporate environmentally friendly household items and make eco-friendly lifestyle choices, as seen on The Real World, into their everyday lives.”

In my humble opinion, "The Real World" has been pretty worthless over the past few years and not exactly setting a noble example for America's youth. So I am glad to see MTV trying to use its powers to do some good. I wonder if the green theme will affect the casting too. What do you guys think about the idea?

it's about freaking time MTV does something revolutionary or even remotely interesting again. MTV is barely relevant anymore, I don't imagine this will help. Although I suppose it won't hurt either. *le sigh*

This show is still on?! :OY: I think they ought to "go green" by removing all the cameras and microphones from the house and shutting down the studio where they edit all the film, etc... Catch my drift?

I think it's a good idea, but its' core demographic won't care ... I'm sick of The Real World. It isn't "real" at all. It's just about pretty people, hooking up and getting drunk. It's beyond repetitive. And Las Vegas is what started all of it...

i don't think the audience nor the real worlders will notice...i think this is just MTV's way of getting on the "Green" bandwagon to get more media for their show that hasn't been worth watching since probably Hawaii...

I think that is great, but I am still not going to watch the show.

It would be great if they chose castmembers who had green values/goals (instead of choosing those whose primary goal is to hook-up). Maybe they could cast a hummer-drivin' consumptionist who sees the error of their ways..and goes hybrid!

I think it is a great idea, I just hope that it won't just be all sex and drinking under the solar powered home.

A good idea if you can actually get the Real Worlders to notice.

I am the Marketing Director for an environmentally friendly, high design resin manufacturer. MTV approached us about being part of the project. We declined to participate. At the end of the day,how does placing these people in an environmentally friendly home made with rapidly renewable materials change the fact that they are selfish, spoiled, promiscuous, binge-drinkers. The producers of the REAL WORLD don't care about teaching their viewers about ways to be "more green". They care about ratings.

At least some good will come to a show that was once thought-provoking but is now just mindless.

I agree, the last few seasons have been worthless. I liked it when they had people of substance on the show, and not a bunch of just able to drink spoiled brats who just want to be on tv.
