Somehow, I totally missed this news from a few weeks ago that the next "Real World" house will be a solar-powered green dwelling. According to Broadcasting and Cable, the 20th season of the reality show will be set in Hollywood and have the roomies living in an eco-friendly house, complete with solar panels, energy-efficient lighting, and sustainable materials. Here are some details from the article:
According to MTV, the show will “introduce today’s youth to the ways in which they can incorporate environmentally friendly household items and make eco-friendly lifestyle choices, as seen on The Real World, into their everyday lives.”
In my humble opinion, "The Real World" has been pretty worthless over the past few years and not exactly setting a noble example for America's youth. So I am glad to see MTV trying to use its powers to do some good. I wonder if the green theme will affect the casting too. What do you guys think about the idea?
