This season’s lucky roommates will get the opportunity of a lifetime when MTV hands over the keys to a new fantasy house for the show’s 23rd season. “The Real World,” MTV’s longest running show, is a documentary series about a group of young people who spend five months living and working together.
So what does it take to get on the show? “We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds,” says Jonathan Murray, Executive Producer of “The Real World.” Past seasons have been populated with cast members from diverse backgrounds, who have shared their daily experiences openly with millions of viewers. Fans of the show will remember alumni such as the irreverent Teck; Pedro, the HIV/AIDS educator; and Melissa, the hilarious firecracker from the “The Real World: New Orleans” cast.
It’s important to us that The Real World reflects the diversity of the general population.Â Â This season we’d love to include a person who is physically challenged, an individual struggling with weight issues, someone whose family or themselves are dealing with the immigrant-to citizenship process, an individual who is coming out of the foster care system, someone who is currently grieving over the loss of a spouse or significant other, or a cast member who wants to bring the spotlight of The Real World to a cause or social issue they care deeply about.
Please note, although these qualities may give applicants an advantage in the casting process, they ARE NOT a requirement. As always, The Real World welcomes anyone with a great personality and a willingness to share their life with the world.
For those who can’t make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email, snail mail, and video upload.
