Denver is about to get real. MTV's next group of rambunctious young adults will whine and weep from the mountain town when The Real World returns for its 18th season.
The show will begin filming in the Rocky Mountain-ringed city next month, and continue through the summer. City officials couldn't be happier with the decision.
Mayor Jim Hickenlooper, who must watch a lot of MTV, told the Denver Post he likes the fact that producers "consciously let the city become a character in the show. Every city has its own personality and idiosyncracies, and they come out in the show."
The current season of Real World is taking place in the Floridian paradise of Key West. Viewers, who have tuned in to see Paula's eating disorder, Svetlana's feminine wiles entrancing the men, and the gang going club-hopping, have turned The Real World into MTV's highest-rated show.
At least one person was not a fan of Real World: Key West. Ed Swift, who lives next door to the Real World house, filed an injunction to stop the show from filming.
