    Yeah...they like them to hook up with each other. At least at the end of Brooklyn we had a potential future couple-not a hook-up.

    I do have to say though, I lived a somewhat sheltered life, and I even knew what was real and what wasn't. True Life is a lot more of the reality, which in a way helps to balance things out. You also have 16 and Pregnant, which is anything BUT glamourizing it, in my book.

    Speaking of, are Ryan and Baya still together? And did Ryan have to go back to Iraq?

    My favorite seasons were those where the cast had to find jobs to subsist basically. It wasn't a free ride in party central. And I worry about the generations of people watching these hot messes now thinking that is what the real world is actually like (and there are teens and tweens that do think that I have had to work with them).
    Unfortunately, a lot of my friends think about the show as this. I'm the reality show freak of my friends, so I know better. I was having a conversation with one of my friends, asking if she watched Brooklyn. She said she watched a little but didn't like it because there wasn't as much hooking up and such.

    It's kinda sad that some people today think of the Real World as a show about drinking, partying, and sex. When the show is randomly brought up in a conversation I'm in (like I said, I'm a reality show freak, so I bring it up sometimes ), I have to tell my friends that the show was originally supposed to be about people living life and dealing with troubles of the actual real world.

    I think Murray and co. should combine the two worlds together: the realness and the partying. That way, they wouldn't alienate any of their fans. I thought Hollywood combined the two worlds pretty well, but I think some of the "realness" fans decided to write that season off quickly when it showed Kim and Dave hooking up in the very beginning of the season.

    I like the realness and hate the partying but I thought that Hollywood was a perfect balance. I didn't start watching until Austin (or San Diego, which one came first? Anyway...) so I didn't see the earlier seasons but of the ones I've seen, Hollywood is BY FAR the best season I've seen. I totally hated Kim though

    I haven't watched consistently since Austin I think. I caught it here and there after that. When I lost the ability to identify with the people I pretty much stopped there.

    That being said the kids I see end up seeing see the show and think it's cool and think that is how reality is supposed to work. Chaos without consequences.

    Sadly I looked on a RW blog, and 70% of the respondents in the poll preferred hooking up and fighting over the real life stuff. I saw most of Miami, all of Hawaii and New Orleans, and most of B2NY, and then I caught it all the way up through Sydney before being disgusted with some of the actions of the girls there. I skipped Hollywood though, but liked Brooklyn. My favourite seasons though were Miami and Hawaii-they had a good balance of the realness and the partying to me. I personally can't watch the hooking up-I guess it was just how I was raised, but to me a couple even kissing in public is offensive, so I don't need to see them hooking up on television.

    This brings me back to Irene from Seattle-she has done speaking engagements that basically prove that it's not real. Look where we've gone now.

    I think the thing with Baya and Ryan was that they were not going to officially be together, but that they had been on a few dates or something before he left for the war, and they're going to wait and see what happens when he gets back.

    Re: The Real World: Cancun

    Hooking up is way hotter to watch for many people, especially their target audience than dealing with other issues like they have in the past. HIV/AIDS and suicide, for example,are just not that sexy. So they sacrificed content to have what they have now which is a non-stop party fest.

    I started waning around Miami when they were staging jobs/opportunities for them. And then after that was a pretty down hill slide for my interest.

    Re: The Real World: Cancun

    It's all become so spoon-fed, I have to agree. Last season they had to go out and find their opportunities. Granted, they probably had some help, but I heard that they are considering having DC be a get-your-own-job season. That, coupled with all the politics and so forth, will be an interesting watch.
