MTV’s Revamped 'The Real World' Features Thai Cast

MTV Studio is bringing back The Real World - one of their most successful reality shows of all time. After its launch in 1992, the show has remained overwhelmingly popular throughout its 32 seasons.

For its comeback, The Real World is taking a completely different approach to broadcasting. Previously, the episodes were aired on MTV.

In the new season, however, The Real World plans to air the episodes exclusively on Facebook Watch, currently one of the largest online entertainment platforms.

Adding to the surprise, the 33rd season has announced 'The Real World Thailand', marking The Real World’s first time in our country.

Bunim/Murray Productions, the original creators, is bringing their crew to Thailand to run the show. They’re also the ones casting seven Thai young adults to live as roommates for the new season.

Real World

The Real World searches for confident individuals between the ages of 18-28 who love to keep it real and aren’t afraid to speak their mind. The group is usually made up of people with different backgrounds, views, and characters.

The selected applicants will live in the same house and get a chance to express their personality to a global audience.

If the revival is anything like its predecessors, you should prepare for many tear-jerking and heart-warming moments. When strangers with all sorts of quirks are put into the same household, things are bound to get eventful.

Real World

Other than being The Real World’s Asia debut, the twist of season 33 is that Facebook users will decide who the last roommate will be.

During the past few weeks, MTV Asia has been shining the spotlight on three women who could potentially join The Real World Thailand as the last cast member:

Lookkaew (24); a self-assured car wash owner from Chanthaburi.

Mine (21); a vivacious social influencer from Buriram.

Ploy (21); a Muay Thai fighter and former scholarship student from Bangkok.

Viewers were invited to vote throughout one week.

Currently, The Real World Thailand has already got the winner, but the names and faces of the official seven roommates remain unannounced. The shooting is expected to take about 12 weeks.

After that, there will be teasers to introduce you to the seven household members. Full episodes of The Real World Thailand will air around the end of 2019.
