Katelynn Cusanelli tells Quora what it is like to be on “The Real World”:
Being on MTV’s TRW is considered by those of us who were house mates (my season was 21) to be a million dollar experience some of us wouldn’t pay a dollar to do again.
Every aspect of your life is regulated. From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep you are mic’d. You need to get permission from a producer if you want to change your clothes. If you want to go somewhere you need to contact a producer to let them know where you would like to go and how many housemates intend on going. The producer will then contact the venue and get permission to film. If permission is not granted, they’ll inform you cannot go to said location.
