An open casting call is taking place at: 
908 Congress St.
Houston, TX 77002
So who are the next stars of “Real World”? “We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds,” says Jonathan Murray, Executive Producer of “Real World.” Past seasons have been populated with cast members from diverse backgrounds, who have shared their daily experiences and over-the-top personalities with millions of viewers. Fans of the show will remember alumni such as Puck, the outrageous bike messenger; Cohutta; the hilarious, folksy mountain-man; Katelyn, the opinionated trans woman; Isaac, who raised naked fish tank snorkeling to an art form; Dustin, the Southern gentleman with a scandalous secret; and Nany and Adam, whose stormy romance rocked the Real World house. 

“Real World” thrives on having a diverse and dynamic cast. Our ideal candidate has a larger-than-life personality, a unique life story, an adventurous spirit and a personal magnetism that draws attention whenever they walk in the room. We are looking for open-minded and open-hearted people who can make us laugh and cry. We also love people who are at a turning point in their lives and have big decisions to make about their future. 
As always, “Real World” welcomes anyone with a great personality and a willingness to share their life with the world. Most of all, we are looking for surprising and unusual life stories that have yet to be told on television. 
Applicants are asked to bring a recent picture of themselves (which will not be returned) and photo ID. You must be 21 years or older by June 2016, and appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24. 
For those who can’t make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email.

The new season of Real World, Real World: Go Big or Go Home, is currently airing Thursday nights on MTV.
