MTV Wants You: “REAL WORLD” is Casting in Frisco on Friday, March 25th, 2016 – “Strong Personalities” Desired

Monday, March 14th, 2016

It’s new, it’s you. It’s now, it’s wow:

“MTV’s “REAL WORLD” LOOKING FOR NEWEST ROOMMATES – Bunim/Murray is Looking for New Stars in SAN FRANCISCO!

The search is on for seven lucky strangers to become the newest stars of MTV’s iconic reality series, “Real World.” Casting has now begun for the show that started it all!

An open casting call is taking place at:

FRIDAY, MARCH 25th, 2016

10AM4PM

WOODBURY

685 3rd Street

San Francisco, CA 94107

So who are the next stars of “Real World”? “We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds,” says Jonathan Murray, Executive Producer of “Real World.” Past seasons have been populated with cast members from diverse backgrounds, who have shared their daily experiences and over-the-top personalities with millions of viewers. Fans of the show will remember alumni such as Puck, the outrageous bike messenger; Cohutta; the hilarious, folksy mountain-man; Katelyn, the opinionated trans woman; Isaac, who raised naked fish tank snorkeling to an art form; Dustin, the Southern gentleman with a scandalous secret; and Nany and Adam, whose stormy romance rocked the Real World house.

“Real World” thrives on having a diverse and dynamic cast. Our ideal candidate has a larger-than-life personality, a unique life story, an adventurous spirit and a personal magnetism that draws attention whenever they walk in the room. We are looking for open-minded and open-hearted people who can make us laugh and cry. We also love people who are at a turning point in their lives and have big decisions to make about their future.

As always, “Real World” welcomes anyone with a great personality and a willingness to share their life with the world. Most of all, we are looking for surprising and unusual life stories that have yet to be told on television.

Applicants are asked to bring a recent picture of themselves (which will not be returned) and photo ID. You must be 21 years or older by June 2016, and appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24.

For those who can’t make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email.

The new season of Real World, Real World: Go Big or Go Home, premieres on MTV on Thursday, March 17th.”

Wow, Rachel Campos, Puck’s Friend from MTV’s “Real World San Francisco” Kick’s Off Scott Walker’s Presidential Campaign

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

I’ll tell you, back in the day I didn’t have the cable TV. So my bud would tape MTV’s Real World San Francisco and then people would come over to watch it on VHS cassette on the “big screen” TV, a 27″ Sony Trinitron.

I’ll tell you, RWSF was a BFD back in ’94. It was the talk of the town. These people were all over the place. (Poor MTV – they were shocked at how hard it was to get area bar owners and the like to agree to allow entry for taping the show.) Anyway, it looked like this:

Where-San-Francisco-Real-World-Cast

So that was then, but this is now. It’s Rachel, all growed up with seven kids? Jeez. And she’s a member of the Congressional Wives Foundation? Wow. So that’s why…

Captureffff

…she was able to introduce Scott Walker at his kickoff. Check it. Via The Gist.

(Oh, I have some notes though. OK Rache, you’re giving us a 12. Why not dial that back to a 4?)

Man that’s sort of painful to listen to. Seems as if she spent less time preparing than delivering.

Is this what cable TV is like?

IDK, I still don’t have the cable…

The Hollywood Set Descends Upon the Western Addition – What It’s Like Filming Alamo Square Atop a Tourist Bus

Friday, October 4th, 2013

You think you’re special, Angelenos?

You’re not special.

Anyway, nice headgear, Hollywood.

But remember, minimum wage in these parts is $10.55 an hour. (Sometimes you Hollywood people don’t understand that.)

All right, on with the show:

Someday, I’ll wear noteworthy headgear and ride a tourist bus around town.

Someday.

Know Your UCSF Doctors: Hey Look, It’s Dr. Pam Ling, the Med Student from MTV’s “The Real World San Francisco” in 1994

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

You’re too young to remember the era before the Internet, but back in the day, MTV was all we had.* So it was a BFD when the MTV came to town to stage a reality show back in 1994.

Pamela Ling was one of the characters. She played a medical student, which wasn’t hard, because, you know, she was a med student at the time.

Anyway, she became a doctor at UCSF and that where she labors some 18 years later.

See?

Oh, and there was Puck, who pretended to be a bike messenger.

Man, some real bike messengers didn’t like him. That’s what I recall.

Ah mem’ries…

*Well, not me. Cable’s for suckers, these days and back in the day. I think my friend would videotape this show and then we’d watch it off of the VHS.
