The Real World: Brooklyn

I’m writing now to talk about The Real World: Brooklyn that just aired for the first time tonight. I can honestly say I stopped watching The Real World when I started noticing the cast members getting younger (basically meaning that I was the one getting older and the cast members were staying the same age), but this season I plan to tune in.

Earlier this summer I made an agreement with the MTV production crew not to post any pictures nor write about any experiences I might have with any of the castmates, due to the fact that they filmed weekly at Angels & Kings (where I take pictures for nightlife photos) until the season aired. Well, I’m not really here dish out any gossip cause quite frankly, I don’t have any (that and I like to keep it to a minimum here). I only know the cast from interacting with them at Trainwreck, and as far as I know, they all seem really cool. I remember talking to my friends, wondering about how this season would pan out on tv because they all seemed to get along so well. They all seemed really nice; they all seemed normal. I never saw any fights or anything really devious.

Seeing some of the previews of episodes to come got me a little nervous, cause I really don’t want to see them fight or get in arguments. I know it’s only natural, but I’m not the kind of person that loves to see a quarrel. I want everyone to be happy.

Anyways, as for the cameras invading our tiny little space in Manhattan, you can only imagine what it was like. Truly, cameras are at AK all the time, so it’s not like it’s something new, but somehow you got your regulars that acted pretty damn annoyed by them. The only thing I have to say about that is, come on! Everyone acted annoyed, but you know they secretly tried to get on camera any chance they got. Also, you’ll notice whatever side of the bar the cameras went, so did the majority of the crowd. I don’t necessarily get it because even if you do get on camera for a minute or two, no one will recognize it or remember you even a day later. I don’t know, I suppose I’m just venting.

In case you didn’t already know, though, Baya had joined the Trainwreck team of Dagger and Rob Hitt, DJing weekly for Trainwreck. She quickly fit into the mix, and she was the first of the cast I met. I absolutely thought she was ADORABLE (and totally my height!). I didn’t find out until later, her reason for wanting to come to New York was to dance. Shoot, that makes me like her ten times more! I can’t wait to see how that goes for her in episodes to come.

As for the other castmates, I enjoyed Scott & Chet the most from a personal standpoint. They were always at Trainwreck and totally friendly. Mr. muscle-man Scott was not nearly what I expected (having a different kind of experience with dudes as big as him), but the guy is super super nice.

Chet is absolutely cool, too, but I hate how people kept knocking on his style in tonight’s episode and in the aftershow. Personally, I love it. What can I say, I’m into dudes who wear skinny jeans and brightly colored shoes. The only style I like to put down is style that has no style (does that make any sense at all?).

Whatever, on to JD…I know he’s gay and all, but I have to say I almost have a minz crush on him. I don’t know what it is because he’s much more boisterous than I am, but I think I just always tend to like the gay guys. Oh well.

Now, moving on to Katelyn, I will honestly say I had NO IDEA she was transgender until after they stopped filming and someone told me. I’ve never talked to her…I just never noticed. I hope people don’t make out her gender change into a big huge issue. I think what she had done is an awesome thing. If it’s what makes her feel happy and most comfortable in her own body…I’m all for it. As for the other 2 girls on the show, Sarah and Devon…I really didn’t talk to them this summer at all, either, but I definitely thought Sarah was cute and reminded me so much of my friend Anne Marie from Nashville. Then, lastly, there’s Ryan. Ummmm, I don’t ever recall seeing him! Am I blind? I had no idea there was another castmate. Maybe I met him, I dunno, I just don’t remember ever seeing him out. Can anybody fill me in on this?

But, yea, that’s my rundown on the show and the cast. I hope this season turns out the best, but for all good reasons. I love New York, so I hope they represent well.

What did you think of tonight’s episode? Do you have any expectations for this season?
