Real World DC predictions
Real World DC predictions
It’s official. The Real Worlders moved out two weeks ago. I’m sorry, I’ve been too upset and hiding in my bed under my covers to update until now. (But you can still relive the memories by checking Metromix's MOST SCANDALOUS SPY PICS.)
Now that you all know they’re gone, there’s not much else to tell you about their departure besides the fact that it was quick, unexpected [even the roommates didn’t know until the day before], and mostly in part to people like me- the bloggers.
What’s important now is looking forward to December 30, 2009- the official airdate of the first episode of The Real World: Washington DC!!! I’m SO excited!
If you’ve been keeping up, you probably have a sense of what to expect in the upcoming season. In case you haven’t, I’m going to give my rundown on how I think the show will go, based on what I saw throughout this fabulous summer.
I know coming into this, they wanted to pick people who would be clearly involved in the DC life-be it involved in politics, sports, charities, media, etc. I think they got that covered. Just about everyone had an internship with one of the above. If they didn’t, they were certainly involved in the nightlife.
But how will they be portrayed on the show? We know every cast member has always had a “character” and played a role, so here’s what I think our summer friends will represent, and what I witnessed them as.
The character--He started out as the oddball, then the make-out king, then the guy with a serious DC girlfriend. I think they’ll love showing him as a make-out nerd who ends up with a model girlfriend. They may twist it a little to look like he cheated.
The real him- Super nice and friendly, with a touch of nerd, and in a completely genuine, great relationship with his new DC girlfriend. She’s not a camera whore or looking for attention… It’s real, and he didn’t cheat.
The character--She was a bartender at McFadden’s, and involved with at least two DCists, one being a bartender at Rhino. I think she’ll probably be the girl who keeps meeting boys, gets a little emotional about things, and is most likely involved in a love triangle or two.
The real Ashley--was incredibly friendly from day one. On move-in day I saw her talking to everyone she could and introducing herself to everyone on the street as they walked to the bar. She did that throughout her time here, and never said anything mean to anyone [that I saw]. She did have a couple boys she may have come attached to, but it was genuine. The girl just likes to have fun.
The character--I still think if there’s going to be a female outcast, it’s going to be her. She was very involved with her internship, and I think she had some involvement in a love triangle, but other than that, I don’t know much.
The real Callie--as far as I can tell, she’s a nice girl, but very hesitant. She didn’t seem to take to us bloggers as well as some of the others, but she was never mean.
The character--One of the first things I heard her say was that she was b**ch, so I’m sure the show will play off that in a big way. It’s also assumed she was hooking up with Ty, so I’m sure that will be a big deal, as well.
The real Emily--She too just likes to have fun! She’s also an amazing poet, though, and very involved with Africa Action and everything it represents. She’s as real as it gets, and also a very genuinely nice girl.
The character--A singer with a boyfriend back home, who leaves when he comes to visit for really no apparent reason. [I’m sure they’ll find a reason…] If reality seeps through at all, she’ll be the mean girl.
The real Erika--The mean, bossy girl. From day one she was telling her roommates who they could and couldn’t talk to and trying to fight people like me. She’s also a tad crazy, as you may know.
The character--A rockstar with a girlfriend back home that he constantly cheats on with a new DC girlfriend and maybe some other randoms. He’s going to get in a lot of fights with the hometown girlfriend.
The real Josh--He is a rockstar, and he does have a girlfriend back home, and he may have cheated on her… but he’s just an early 20s-year-old guy who is looking to have fun on one of his life’s biggest adventures. He’s very dedicated to his new band and they have big plans for the future. He, too, is a very nice guy to anyone that talks to him.
The character--I’m sure he’ll be the token gay guy who is all about gay rights and dates a couple guys from the area.
The real Mike--Extremely, genuinely involved with the Human Rights Campaign, equality rights, and politics as a whole. He loves the DC life because he can get involved. He’s more than just a gay/bisexual guy who dates bartenders.
The character--The man was supposedly one of the most fine Real Worlders ever. I’m sure he’ll be the crazy, cocky guy that everyone hates, gets in fights with, and gets thrown off the balcony by. He’ll also be the guy hooking up with a million girls.
The real him--He’s a bit crazy in the party animal way, and seemed to always be out [unless the group was at a bar he got banned from]. He does make out with a lot of girls, and he’s a typical guy who wants to play in the NFL. I found him hysterical.
Now the countdown begins! I can hardly believe it! I hope all of you enjoyed the adventure as much as I did!
To the roommates--Thanks for giving DC the excitement…We’ll miss you! [Most of us, anyway…]
