update: real world dc

Last night I was just way too drained to post everything that I have about the Real World DC, so that's what I am here to do now.

If you haven't already checked out Episodes 1, 1.5, and 2, you need to.

Anyways! First of all, when I went to the house, I saw them putting in a stack of carpets into the house. They were all colorful and very Real World-esque.


As I said before, I did see the inside downstairs thanks to the workers leaving the door open. Unfortunately, I have nothing to show you. I think it was all control rooms, though, because the hallway looked very not-for-the-camera. It'd be hard for anything fun to go down in what I saw.

When I walked away, I ran into a few of the right people. This is what I found out:
  • The Real World cast will be working as canvasers just two blocks from the house at the Human Rights Campaign offices. They'll be all over the streets trying to get support money for all different causes. However, this may not be the only job the roommates have. They may also work on individual projects separate from this.
  • Each restaurant and/or bar and/or public place that allows the cast into their property must sign a waiver. This contract allows MTV to basically do whatever they want inside. If something gets destroyed, tough. If something happens but they don't catch it on camera, they can recreate the entire scene, whenever and wherever they please. They also have the right to ask people to move to wherever the camera would like them. [I'm sure they'll ask me to be front and center.]
There are some other things I have learned, but either I shouldn't share yet, or I don't have it all confirmed. The above is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. [As far as I can tell.]

The rumor still stands on the roommates moving in TOMORROW, so I will be down there in the morning to scope out the scene! Get pumped, people! I know I am!

love,
elizabethany
