The Real World: Cancun was announced by MTV today. The Real World: Cancunwill become the 22nd stop for the MTV reality series, and seems like something that the show would have tried years ago. The MTV show The Real World had been around for quite a while now, spending seasons in cities like London, Seattle, and Hollywood just to name a few. It is quite typical for the show to have many parties during a seasonal run, and it goes without saying that moving their next locale to Mexico is just going to make it even easier.
Having the 22nd season of The Real World in Cancun, Mexico is a pretty brilliant idea by producers in order to keep the show relevant for the new fans that are just starting to tune in. The need to keep one of the original reality shows appearing new, fresh, and hip was a necessity for the people at MTV, and by having an entire season in one of the biggest party destinations around, MTV should see ratings for the show continue to be significant. Now it will give them even more excuses to film their stars running around half-naked in bikinis and swimsuits.
For fans of the hit MTV show, this is probably going to be great news, as Cancun is not only a great party location, but one of those places that looks absolutely amazing on film. Having the next season of the show in such a beautiful location will also help the producers to take advantage of the scenery (the nature-made scenery) and play that into nearly every segment of the show. Having the ability to do that also means that they can film a lot of filler, and really play up that they are using such a great destination such as Cancun to film the latest installment of The Real World.
The first rumors from the show are that the next group of house-mates will work in Cancun as tour guides for visiting college students, and likely have a lot of fun alongside them at parties and other functions. It seems like just a “fluff” job that gives them excuses to get into more parties, but fans of the show have grown to accept that parties are a staple of the show that will inevitably lead to some good made-for-television drama between the house-mates and those they interact with in Cancun. Television watchers will have to decide for themselves if the newest season is going to be good when the previews start coming out, but with Cancun chosen as the next destination, there probably won’t be many complaints from viewers.
