MTV has announced that season 27 of The Real World will kick off later this month, on June 27th. This time around, the venerable reality series will be taking place in the Caribbean paradise known as St. Thomas.
It’s unclear how long this season will run but the last few seasons have had between 14 and 16 installments each.
Here’s the press release (which includes brief bios of the participants) and a video tease from MTV:
THE CARIBBEAN GETS A TASTE OF “THE REAL WORLD” AS MTV INVADES ST. THOMAS, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY (June 11, 2012) – MTV’s “The Real World” celebrates its 27th season on the exotic island of St. Thomas when the series premieres on Wednesday, June 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The roommates will experience everything Caribbean culture has to offer from island romance, rum and scuba diving to island-hopping, kayaking, and dancing in the streets at the traditional Carnival parade. And this time around, the seven strangers are living on an island accessible only by boat — so they’re going to get very close, very quickly. In fact, romance sparks almost immediately for four of them.
