Apparently Phoenix is a hub for big personalities, because CBS' Big Brother isn't the only show holding casting calls in metro Phoenix.
MTV is on the hunt for new faces and bold personalities as it casts its 30th season of The Real World. So, naturally, Viacom is sending its reality show representatives to Tempe on Tuesday, April 22.
The reality show, which centers around young adults, is looking for applicants aged 20 to 24, with a 21st birthday no later than June. In other words, people who hadn't been born or can barely remember when the show initially aired in 1992.
MTV casting producers have noted that they are looking for applicants "with big personalities who are ready to share their story with audiences." But if we've learned anything from past seasons, being a good mix of crazy hot and just plain crazy probably wouldn't hurt either.
The casting call is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hooters on Mill Avenue. Applicants are asked to bring a photo of themselves for the casting crew to keep.
