Stop Being Polite: The Real World Chicago Reunion
McFayden asks Chris what he's up to. Chris says that he's been modeling and taking acting classes in New York. Do these people really think that their post-Real World careers are going to involve fame and fortune? I just don't get that. First of all, the audience of the show is largely made up of teens and college-aged people, not casting directors and Hollywood bigwigs. Second of all, the show doesn't exactly have a great track record for promoting the careers of aspiring entertainers. The most successful Real World alumnus in terms of acting is probably Jacinda, with a couple of failed shows and small roles in movies under her belt, and she was a model before she even went on the show, so she could have gotten those even without being on the show. Chris confirms that he is also sober, and has been for sixteen months. Chris jokes that if he could stay sober through his Real World experience, he'll be sober for life. CJP pipes up that she knows she got drunk every Tuesday night, and everyone laughs, like, way to use alcohol to dull the pain.
Now we move on to Theo, who also holds his mike in a distracting manner. He holds the speaking end right up to his mouth and the opposite end sticks up in the air, like, I expect him to start going, "Throw your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care." Theo says that he and his brothers have started a company called Royal Family Entertainment. Because McFayden sucks as an interviewer, we don't get to find out what this company does, or how Theo got the idea, or what they have done so far.
Instead, we move on to Aneesa. She is working as a waitress in a cocktail bar. That much is true. But even then she knew she'd find a much better place, either with or without you. There are a few obvious cuts, so she must have talked for a while and they edited it out. Aneesa says she's trying to save up money for school, and that she and her mom love each other and have a great relationship.
