Are you Real enough?

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

MTV's long-running reality show again came to UMass today, searching for fresh faces to add to their upcoming edition of the show. The program has been the network's longest running show, and is preparing to start its twenty-first season. Seven new strangers will be locked in together for a fantastic five months. Check out our full coverage here.


The Student Ballroom was full of students groping blindly towards a chance at eternal Cable stardom, yet things went smashingly compared to MTV's last trip here on campus.

Nearly four years ago, the casting call was held in Room 101 of the Campus Center. As hundreds of students waited in a line stretching all the way up the stairs and escalators and down the concorse, a flash flood unleashed a one-foot wall of water straight through the crowd. This time, there was no such watery fun, just the quiet murmur of expectations being crushed. Maybe American Idol will show up next.
