    MTV chooses Cancun as setting for 22nd cycle of series

    By James Hibberd

    Jan 26, 2009, 01:00 AM ET

    And the location for the next season of "The Real World" is ... Cancun.

    The Mexico vacation destination will serve as the setting for the MTV show's 22nd cycle. There, the housemates will work with spring break resource site StudentCity.com to serve as guides for visiting college students.

    "They're going to help give people a safe and fun vacation," co-creator Jonathan Murray said. "They also might have to bail somebody out of a Mexican jail, stuff like that."

    Production has started on the season, which will debut this year.

    The current season is set in Brooklyn. The recent season premiere was up 18% in the total viewers from last year and continues to rank as one of MTV's top-rated shows.

    "Cancun is a good one to do after Brooklyn, which was a more gritty environment," Murray said.

    If the location sounds like it's from a previous installment of the groundbreaking reality series, there's some cause for that. The party spot seems an ideal choice for the show, and after 21 cycles it's surprising Cancun wasn't picked earlier.

    Also, "Real World" producers in 2003 shot an R-rated unscripted movie called "The Real Cancun" that's unrelated to the series.

    Like last season, when producers looked for activists and people with "depth," the press release and casting information says they "are specifically seeking people with the following attributes," although "they ARE NOT a requirement": "Leadership experience (student government, college resident advisor, job manager, camp counselor), musical ability, seasoned travelers who speak Spanish, lifesaving skills (lifeguard, EMT), athleticism (particularly water sports).

    sounds interesting! Still a bunch of US cities they could have done but oh well, this sounds like it will be one giant drunk-fest.

    I actually think it's a good idea.. alternate one season with all the drunk pretty people that want to have sex with EVERYONE, and then a season that goes back to RW roots. That way they keep everyone interested as some people only like 1 or the other.

    I don't think they're that far ahead. They were still airing commercials about casting when the current season began. Probably won't know until the summer.

    I just saw a preview for this show and it's already airing June 24th! That feels way too early. The other season ended in late March. Didn't there used to be like 5-6 months between seasons?! Hollywood ended in July of 08 and Brooklyn didn't air until January.

    I saw the previews and it looks pretty interesting. Let's just hope they won't play ridiculous pranks on eachother and have that be the most "interesting" thing they do like this past season. What a waste of time!

    I think it's too early, too. I liked it better when there was more time between the seasons. At this rate they'll probably air three seasons next year.
