For the past years, decades even, fans have wondered why Atlanta was never represented on The Real World. It seems like the city might finally get the chance to be showcased for season 33.
An Atlanta news source has reported The Real World is slated to film in the city from March 11-May 25, a 10 week period. This is the first time the show has filmed in the city. For years, rumors circulated that a mayor in Atlanta prevented the show from filming in the city due to the show’s depiction of black Americans. Perhaps this was true during the early days of the show, but I doubt it impacted the show in its later years. In fact, BMP filmed a season of Bad Girls Club in Atlanta, a show that makes The Real World seem like a family program.
Either way, this is a welcome change. This may result in some additional interest in the show.
