MTV coming to Tampa for 'Real World' casting
Think you are ready to stop being polite and start being real? MTV will be holding auditions in Tampa for MTV’s The Real World on Saturday.
Casting producers, who will be at Hooters of Channelside from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tell us they are looking “for outgoing personalities who aren’t afraid to be themselves and want to share their story on TV.” Applicants are asked to bring a photo ID and a picture of themselves (that casting directors will keep). They also look for individuals to be between ages 20 to 24 but must be 21 by June 2014.
The series, which has been on MTV’s airwaves since the early ’90s, drew its strongest ratings in three years this year with “Real World: Ex-Plosion.” The season started with seven strangers who all have complicated relationships with their exes and are ready to be free, enjoying single life in the Real World house in San Francisco. But just when they get comfortable and new relationships start to brew.... surprise, their exes moved in.
Series co-creator Jon Murray has said he has numerous other format twists in mind for the veteran reality program.
