MTV struck gold when they got in really early to the reality TV craze with The Real World back in 1992, and now 24 years and 31 seasons later, there has been a lot for fans to sift through. With so many seasons and so many different people featured, a lot of casts and seasons have been forgotten, but there have been several that are still brought up. It’s hard to make fans of the series happy because those who are more familiar with the most recent seasons sometimes find the older ones boring, and those who watched it in the ’90s don’t like the way the show has developed now. Either way, these 11 seasons have stood out for either good or bad reasons, so check it out:
11. Austin (Season 16) – 2005
The Real World: Austin was one of those seasons where fans could not believe that these specific seven people were picked, yet still tuned into watch week after week. Some casts were so unlikable or boring their seasons were unremarkable and sometimes hard to watch, but despite the Austin cast arguably being the worst ever, they brought fans in. Challenge fans are well aware of Wes Bergmann, who was at the top of the most hated list, followed closely by the rest of his housemates, and yet he turned into one of those people viewers loved to hate, and always came back to see what he would do next. Austin was also popular because it seemed more “real” with the relationship between Danny and Melinda, and of course everything that happened with Danny from getting into a street fight leaving him with injuries that required surgery, to the death of his mother while he was away filming, causing him to take some time away from the show. There were a lot of reasons to watch, making the season one not to forget, but the cast also makes it one of the worst to sit through.
