We're not really sure who is still watching the drunken debauchery that is MTV's "The Real World," but we do get nostalgic for seasons past. Take the San Francisco season from 1994, for example, which featured the late Pedro Zamora and the notorious bike messenger, Puck.
Located on the city's famous Lombard Street, the house was the setting of serious discussions like AIDS and homosexuality. We dug up a video clip of the most notable moment when the house members voted to kick Puck out, and we couldn't help but notice the '90s interiors of the billiards room with the giant fish tank. If you want to feel old, get a load of the slipcovered sofa, shoji-style screens and that landline phone.
From the exterior, the house looks like any other on the street -- the location is particularly underwhelming compared to the sites of other seasons. Later on, "Real World" homes became more and more extreme in over-the-top places like firehouses and casinos with features like hot tubs and see-through showers that added fuel to the fire.
The TV show will be heading back to the The Golden Gate City twenty years later for the 29th season. Jonathan Murray, one of the creators of" The Real World," told Entertainment Weekly, “We’re excited about returning to San Francisco, the location of one of our most memorable seasons of The Real World. The city has always been a great place for young people to explore who they are and what they want to do with their lives.” We may just have to tune in to reminisce.
