Real World X
The Real World celebrated its 10th season with a dramatic return to the city where it all started, New York. Set amidst the frenetic hustle and bustle of Manhattan, this season of The Real World saw the cast battling with racially charged conflicts--Mike and Coral clash initially after he explains how his uncle doesn't hire black people; Malik and Nicole butt heads over inter-racial dating. On the romance front, Lori is infatuated with Kevin but the feeling isn't mutal. The house finally sees some action when Mike brings home a "panty dropper." Appointed as a marketing street team for Arista Records, the cast found themselves at the epicenter of the music industry, where they were charged with promoting and marketing newly signed bands as well as established artists.
