I've been hearing rumors and reading on blogs that MTV has been trying to get The Real World filmed in Washington DC. Then I heard they they've been hiring for production positions or something and they were checking out different neighborhoods in DC.(The neighborhoods are very defined here. Unlike the "East Side" of Milwaukee, there would be tons of smaller hoods in that area.) Most options that I heard were kind of midtown/uptown since those neighborhoods are where the night life is. So I figured I'd be close no matter what. Now I finally heard that they are set to start shooting on June 20 in Dupont Circle. It's an expensive, fairly upscale neighborhood. I only live about a 1-1.5 miles away. So I'm sure I'll run into them at one point. I don't think there's been an official announcement yet, but it would be an interesting thing to see.

They're almost done filming their latest challenge over in Thailand too called "The Pit" which features past challenge winners against people who have never won. There's been quite a few shocking eliminations & two guys got kicked off for getting in a CT/Adam style brawl that I never would've guessed would get in fights on the show.

I heard rumors that they made the last cast go to only a few set of bars that were set up before hand, because of the negative response previous seasons had been getting including a few fights that weren't shown during the seasons at the bars. I noticed this last season especially, because they'd almost promote the bar/club every time they'd narrate how they went out that night.

CT is an animal and probably should be professional boxer. Dave is 5'6 at best and CT is probably 6'4 and 230 pounds. No wonder CT does damage. Plus, now the thing with his brother...uh oh, let's hope no one pisses this guy off (well, it already happened on the Duel II, but let's hope it doesn't happen AGAIN).

I bet he's kicking himself in the butt for getting kicked off this challenge, all the missions are tailormade for him plus you can't get cheap disqualification losses in the Duels like he got screwed over on last time.

I always thought he was one of the best competitors on these challenges. Brad was getting smoked by CT on the first Duel until CT got disqualified for not hooking a clip in. Maybe Alton and Landon (possibly Evan or Mark) could put up a fight against CT in one of these things. The only reason why CT has never won is because his biggest opponent is himself, and he has let his anger take over on most cases. He probably should've won on the Gauntlet III, however another thing held him back (Big Easy).

He had to unclip the flag from the ground & he tore it off instead of unclipping it; he got screwed either way, that was a weak way to lose. I'm pretty sure CT would smoke Landon pretty easily too, I've seen Landon a few times since his parents live not too far from me and the guy is a twirp, nowhere near CT's size or strength.

I thought it was hilarious on the Hollywood season when that Dave guy kept acting like a bad ass the whole season and the one night they went out towards the end, he got beat up in the club and then when he was talking about how he'd kick the guy's ass if he ever saw him again, the same guy came up to him and slammed him on the sidewalk. Most of the Real World guys that get in fights with hecklers end up getting beat up, I think CT is the only guy I've seen on the show that actually manned up to a heckler and smacked him up.

I'm not sure how things are going to go out here. There's quite a few anti-Real World things going on. It's a different world out here and these type of people aren't going to be very welcoming. DC is losing it status or being a political town and because a mini New York City with bars, clubs, theaters, and special events everywhere. It's filled with rich yuppies now.

Where do you live, takedown? I just got back from living on the Hill (about two blocks down from the Hart Building and 4 from Union Station) for a few months.

The thing about D.C. is that its kind of a checkerboard. You can be walking through a reasonably good neighborhood, cross the street, and suddenly you're on a dangerous block. Keep walking for a couple minutes, and you're back on a nice block. I'd think that would make it difficult to do a show there.

Another interesting thing about DC is that the city police are the Capitol Police, and there are cameras all over the place. In some places in DC, there are so many security cameras that it makes you feel like Big Brother is watching. So that might actually make it easier to avoid conflict.

Kool. I was considering moving there soon when my lease is up here in August. I live in Columbia Heights. About halfway between the U St and Columbia Heights Metro stops. Not a bad area. The commute to work is about 15 minutes to the DC Fire Dept Training Academy in SW DC near Boiling Air Force Base and close to Anacostia since its at 430am. About 30-45 minutes home.

I agree with what you said. It can be very block to block. However, DC is probably the fastest changing city in the nation right now. 10-15 years ago even Chinatown was a giant ghetto. Now its a mini Times Square. I heard from other firemen that as recent as 6-8 years ago, many fire houses were going to 2-3 working fires every day. Now the whole city only has 2-3 working fires every day. I was at a fire house down the street from me and they said 5 years ago we wouldn't be standing outside having this conversation. If you were white and in the neighborhood, you're either a fireman, a cop, or looking for drugs. Now it's one of the up and coming neighborhoods with tons of nightlife and sky high prices.

How did you like it in DC? Think you might move back?
