Real World VII (Seattle)
Set on Pier 70 of Seattle's Elliott Bay, this Real World season featured--for the first time--cast members who knew each other before arriving at the house (David and Nathan). To give the show a new music twist, the seven strangers worked as "modulators" at alterna-rock radio station, 107.7 The End. What begins as a series of promotional duties eventually leads to producing and hosting a live radio show. The gang has to deal with major issues including the perils of long-distance relationships, Lyme Disease and suicide. Later in the season, the cast members traveled to Nepal in support of their various radio station duties. And who can forget David's forbidden romance with a Real World casting director and Stephen's goodbye slap for Irene?
