Summer's Reality TV Standouts
MTV Real World Season 27: St. Thomas
'The Real World: St. Thomas' (MTV)
Season 27 premieres June 27
Can you believe this will be the series' 27th installment? Neither can we, mainly because it makes us feel incredibly old. (Wasn't it just yesterday that Kevin and Julie had their iconic screaming match on the sidewalk in front of the Season 1 loft in SoHo?) Despite coming to grips with the realization that we're no longer teenagers -- and wondering whether we should still be watching a show we grew up on -- we are excited to meet the seven new strangers, "picked to live in a house ... stop being polite ... start getting real" ... you know the drill. And even if the cast is as lackluster or not as attractive as some of the recent groups, there will at least be plenty of pretty scenery to stare at, thanks to the show's new tropical location in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
