10 lessons from social media about Chicago's 'Real World'
They're baaack! MTV's "Real World" has officially started filming in the West Loop.
After my initial coverage of the reality show's return to Chicago, I wanted to drive through the neighborhood to see what's up. I spotted two cast members with a camera in their faces as they walked into their Randolph Street loft.
Now that they're here, I jumped down the Twitter rabbit hole to see what I could learn about what life is like in Chicago's "Real World."
Just because you're not on the show doesn't mean you can't try to get on camera—even if your fate is the cutting room floor.

Stars, they're just like us. They grab a bite at Subway and stop at 7-Eleven.

They can't get into Alinea.
Re: The Real World RT @nickkokonas ironically they wanted to film at Alinea (seriously). We -- ahem -- declined.— Kevin Pang (@pang) August 9, 2014
Expect fighting, even if it is over groceries.
Just saw The Real World being filmed in a grocery store by work. The argument on what produce to they should buy was entertaining/staged.— Nate Jacobson (@natejacobson1) August 10, 2014

They like to dress alike.
Expect to see them at the beach—especially at North Avenue.

You will see them while you're on the way to work or walking your dog or just because you're stalking them.

Even if MTV doesn't admit they're filming "Real World," they're not fooling anybody.
