“’Real World’ thrives on having a diverse and dynamic cast,” the release states. “Our ideal candidate has a larger-than-life personality, a unique life story, an adventurous spirit and a personal magnetism that draws attention whenever they walk in the room. We are looking for open-minded and open-hearted people who can make us laugh and cry. We also love people who are at a turning point in their lives and have big decisions to make about their future.”

Applicants are asked to bring a recent picture of themselves (which will not be returned) and photo identification. You must be 21 years or older by June 2016, and appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24.
