“Real World: Go Big or Go Home” Unveils Promo and We’re All a Little Nervous

We were more than a little giddy when the latest season of “Real World” began filming in downtown’s Gold Spike hotel, news first reported by this very blog, naturally.

“Real World” cast members were spotted around Las Vegas for weeks in late 2015, showing up at downtown bars and restaurants, as well as social events across the city.

Cast members Christopher Ammon, Dione Mariani and Kailah Casillas at Penn Jillette’s house. Long story.

We crossed our fingers the latest “Real World” installment would harken back to the earliest seasons of the groundbreaking reality show, cleverly using socio-economic archetypes as a way to meaningfully grapple with issues of race, sexual orientation and culture.

We may not have crossed enough fingers.

Here’s the first promo for “Real World: Go Big or Go Home.”

Oh, these crazy kids today.

The “Go Big or Go Home” twist for this season involves challenges the cast must accomplish (either individually or as part of a team) or risk being tossed from the show.

Our inside source says two members of the cast got the boot prior to the completion of taping.

Unbelievably, this will be the 31st season of “Real World.” See the full cast here.

Expect to see the cast spending lots of time at the hotel pool, on Fremont Street and at a handful of downtown haunts, specifically the ones where they could get permission to shoot.

Cast members could often be seen at The D’s Longbar. Or as we like to call it, our home away from home.

Do not expect to see many segments on The Strip, as the major Strip resorts learned long ago controversy often follows the “Real World,” so filming was often not allowed.

“Real World: Go Big or Go Home” looks like it’s going to be the best kind of hot mess. It debuts March 17, 2016 on MTV.

Just act natural, bro.

Judging from the show’s promo, there will be the usual fights and hook-ups and cries and hugs. And lots of downtown Las Vegas.

What could possibly go wrong?

    You should get in touch with Jeff Probst and see if he is willing to shoot a season of Survivor in Vegas. If you get voted off you have the chance to go into Criss Angel’s Warehouse and if you survive 3 days there you can come back to the island (Marquee Day Club).

    I saw them filming at the Godsmack concert at Palms (full circle eh?) and at the drone races at Western Hotel (or as I like to call it the We Hot.)

    There is nothing real about the Real World or any other so called reality show. Its all staged and scripted. I know people who have worked on it. Not this season but I am sure nothing has changed. But if you still enjoy watching who cares.

    I grew up on the show and remember wanting to try out for it. I’m 36 now and willing it give it a whirl. More looking forward to seeing what downtown has to offer. i dont venture there much.
