Word on the street is a third Las Vegas-based installment of MTV’s The Real World will begin production in October. Unlike its two Vegas predecessors, filmed at the Palms in 2002 and the Hard Rock Hotel in 2011, our sources say that this installment will be set in Downtown. The format for Downtown’s Real World, however, is unknown at this time.

One thing we can count on? This will be the true story of seven strangers picked to live in a house, penthouse or casino. And some kind of debauchery will ensue.
