love the real world
17 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Real World" is the most addicting show on the planet. MTV does the best job of finding colliding personalities. When I get older, I so want to try out!I Love how fly the houses are too, they are amazing. My parents hate the show, but I don't care. The challenge is good too, Love the exiles.... but the real world is better. Its really cool, for anyone who doesn't watch it, to watch it now. Love It!!!!!!!! IT really does Rock. ITs been happening since the 80's (I think) but the last season was in key west. I wonder where they will go next. I don't know where they will go next, but I really hope that they go some where awesome! I suggest Everyone watch the show! Its the bomb!
