The Real World DC??

ZOMG yes please. Now, before you get as excited as me, this intel source is a Gawker poll trying to project the site of the 23rd season of MTV’s The Real World. In the voting, however, DC is listed in second place… right behind “A watery grave” (27%). 

The current season takes place in Brooklyn. Should the show move to DC next, it will confirm my long-held belief that DC = the new NYC. You could get a great mix here: the hill intern, the green/human rights non-profit worker, the junior lobbyist, the yoga instructor… 

Question remains: Where would Real Worlders reside in DC. WLDC author KatieT says U Street would be the place for MTV dramz. Maybe. Based on the “Brooklyn” season, however, which put the cast about as far out as you can get in BK and actually still claim its BK, I’m apt to vote for something like Capitol Heights. Thoughts? Where would Real World: DC be staged?

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.

  1. Careful, saying that DC is the new NYC might get the NYC folks all upset… Well. MORE upset than usual, anyhow. Woohoo, DC > NYC.

  2. Wait, that show is still on? Good grief, I remember ignoring it while I was in college.

    That’s all we need around here, drunken post-teen pre-real world non-students passing out on U Street.

    Wait. That already happens…
