MTV’s The Real World’s 10 Biggest Scandals
8. Real World: Austin- Danny’s Fight
Fights between housemates are fairly common, but on the season of The Real World: Austin in 2005, Danny Jamieson ended up in the hospital with very serious injuries. Audiences knew it wasn’t dramatized or exaggerated when Danny got punched in the face when trying to stop a fight and ended up with a broken cheek bone, broken orbital bone and damage to nerves in his face as well as his eye and vision requiring surgery. The reality of his injuries was extremely scary, and brought to light how quickly things can happen, and while he did recover, his left eye has never been the same.
7. Real World: St. Thomas- Drugs
Throughout the years, many cast members have opened up about their struggles with addiction and rehab, one of which was Brandon Kane from the Real World: St. Thomas who had been addicted to both alcohol and heroin. Unfortunately, Brandon became one of the only cast members to ever battle with doing drugs while filming. After struggling to remain sober, he began drinking again in Episode 10, and audio catches him discussing doing drugs with a girl he meets while partying. The next episode reveals that Brandon in fact did do cocaine and became the first ever Real World member to be evicted for failing a random drug test while filming.
