The Real World: Seattle S:32 | Stacked Odds E:6 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV — The Real World: Seattle edition is a weekly “after show” for fans of MTV’s The Real World: Seattle. In this episode, Omari Bailey, Candace Rice, and Michael Rippe discuss episode 6.

The Real World (also known as simply Real World) is a reality television program on MTV originally produced by Mary-Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray. First broadcast in 1992, the show, which was inspired by the 1973 PBS documentary series An American Family, is the longest-running program in MTV history and one of the longest-running reality series in history, credited with launching the modern reality TV genre.

The series was hailed in its early years for depicting issues of contemporary young-adulthood relevant to its core audience, such assex, prejudice, religion, abortion, illness, sexuality, AIDS, death, politics, and substance abuse, but later garnered a reputation as a showcase for immature and irresponsible behavior.

Following Bunim’s death from breast cancer in 2004, Bunim/Murray Productions continues to produce the program. The 30th season, set in Chicago, premiered on December 16, 2014.

The series has generated two notable spin-offs, both broadcast by MTV: Road Rules, which lasted for 14 seasons (1995–2007), and the ongoing reality game show The Challenge (originally known as Road Rules: All Stars before being renamed Real World/Road Rules Challenge after both its precursors), which has run for over 20 seasons since 1998. The Challenge is mostly cast-contestant dependent on both The Real World and Road Rules, as it combines contestants from various seasons of both shows.
