MTV Teases Overhauled ‘Real World’ Format in First Trailer

MTV The Campaigners

Though “Real World” returns to MTV’s lineup on January 15, the cabler has already offered fans a trailer for the upcoming season set in San Francisco.

This time, it’s seven strangers picked to live in a house, work together and have their lives taped…

Until their exes show up.

For the first time in “Real World’s” 21-year history, Bunim-Murray Prods. has overhauled the basic house reality show, ramping up the drama with the addition of ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends to the loft where new relationships are blossoming. The format change, MTV hopes, will bring auds back to the venerable unscripted program, which has seen a dip in viewership over the last several seasons.

Check out the trailer below. Will you be watching?

    Ugh MTV… Seriously this is such a lame twist and a desperate move. I was really looking forward to then doing something innovative and risky.

    Something is seriously up over at that network.

  4. Jeff says:

    I was planning on watching anyway because Real World was my first guilty pleasure and I have stuck with it. This season is going to be great, they will be great and I can’t wait to see what they come up with for the following season. Love The Real World!!
