MTV is looking for overweight home-schoolers who have been affected by natural disasters for the next season ofThe Real World
-- and it's coming to find them in Denver, which hostedits own cast of seven strangers picked to live in a house
in 2006 and 2007.
Real World casting directors will be at a Hooters at 1390 South Colorado Boulevard tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., where, we imagine, they will sift through hundreds of hot, bicurious babes and Red-Bull-and-vodka-swilling dudes to find the one plus-size model who was caught in a tsunami when her home-school group went on a field trip to Indonesia one time.
"We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds," says Jonathan Murray, executive producer of "The Real World," in a press release.
This season, he says, "we'd love to include a person who is physically challenged, an individual struggling with weight issues, someone who has been affected by a natural disaster, a cast member who is a product of home or alternative schooling, and an individual who wants to bring the spotlight of The Real World to a cause, condition, or social issue they care deeply about."
