History

Part of a series on
MTV
  in the United States  
.The show focuses on the lives of a group of strangers[6] who audition to live together in a house for several months, as cameras record their interpersonal relationships.^ Indra Gardiner I am a member of a group here in San Diego that gets together once a month for a dining adventure.

^ This is the true story of seven strangers, picked to live in a house and have their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.” .

The show moves to a different city each season. .The footage shot during the housemates’ time together was edited into 22-minute episodes for the first 19 seasons, and into 44-minute episodes beginning with the The Real World: Hollywood, the series' 20th season.^ Real World wins Battle of the Seasons.

^ The real world to me is a series of tubes.

^ The Real World / 22 May 2001 .

The narration given over the opening title sequence by the seven housemates states some variation of the following:
This is the true story... of seven strangers... picked to live in a house...work together and have their lives taped... to find out what happens... when people stop being polite... and start getting real...The Real World.
Before the finished version of the show debuted, the idea of a "scripted" version was toyed with. .Rather than being themselves, a set of strangers (not the first-season New York cast) were given story and character arcs to attempt to recreate (a la soap opera).^ Kyle joins soap opera cast.

^ New York season."

^ Okay, so this New York Times story is not strictly about parents.

.Bunim and Murray decided against this, and, at the last minute, pulled the concept (and the cast) before it became the first season of the show, believing seven diverse people would have enough of a basis upon which to interact without scripts.^ But the team did not gain 10 yards on the first four plays and would have lost possession before a fifth and sixth play.

^ In the interests of popular science I would like to open the first (and possibly last) Designers vs. The Real World survey – a contest that pits Philippe Starck against John Smith in a test of aesthetic mettle.

.One early sign of the show’s popularity occurred on the October 2, 1993 episode of the sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live, which parodied the second-season Los Angeles cast, whose members were depicted as contentious and bigoted, a parody of the numerous discussions of racism, bigotry, and political differences that served as a recurring theme that season.^ Landon is not one of the cast members.

.The show also gained widespread attention with its third season, The Real World: San Francisco, which aired in 1994, and depicted the conflict between David "Puck" Rainey, a bicycle messenger criticized for his poor personal hygiene, and his roommates, most notably AIDS activist Pedro Zamora.^ Real World will show Robin's arrest.

.As the show increased in popularity, Zamora’s life as someone living with AIDS gained considerable notice, garnering widespread media attention.^ Bloggers and web freaks forget that there is a life outside of the web world and that people are very successful in their lives and communicating without social media.

.Zamora was one of the first openly gay men with AIDS to be portrayed in popular media, and after his death on November 11, 1994 (mere hours after the final episode of his season aired), he was lauded by then-President Bill Clinton.^ As one of my first steps I purchased your “Web Analytics: An Hour a Day.” So far it has been a valuable resource in learning this new field.

Diversity

.In December 2005, Aaron Gillego, a columnist for The Advocate, criticized the series for having never cast an Asian male in the then-13 years of its existence, opining that female Asians have been cast on the show because heterosexual men have been socialized by the media to think of them as exotic beauties or sex objects, but that Asian males have been largely invisible in popular media.^ It's not because they wanted to "be on social media".

^ Last year I read about a new tool to measure Social Media (twitter specifically).
