The Cast of 'The Real World: New York' in 2015 vs. in 1992
December 22, 2014
The Real World has been through many iterations in the
last 22 years, including the current version, where cast
members’ “skeletons” are secretly brought in throughout
the show’s 30th season. But 1992 was a simpler time in
reality television, where just being roommates was enough
of a social experiment. In The Real World’s very first
season, “seven strangers” gathered together in a New
York loft to “live together and have their lives taped,” and
now, 22 years later, Oprah and the OWN network are
gathering those seven people back together for a reunion
in the very same loft that changed television forever.
Why is Oprah doing this? No idea; but I’m excited. In more recent seasons, The Real World has taken a sharp
left turn toward more typical reality fare, but when Norman Korpi, Julie Gentry, Becky Blasband, Kevin Powell,
Andre Comeau, Heather Gardner, and Eric Nies shared a portion of their lives together, the social experiment
of reality TV was experimental. They brought real emotions, real conflicts, and real lives to the televised
vacuum of The Real World. Still, it’s easy to forget that they were, in fact, real people, whose lives kept going
when the cameras stopped rolling. Let’s check in on where the original seven roommate’s lives have taken
them, and how and it all started for them way back then.
Then: Oh, Norman. Norm didn’t just break the mold for
day representation on reality TV—he created it. As the
first openly LGBT housemate on The Real World, Norman
was simply a cool dude with an artist’s spirit who helped
in expanding a few minds.
Now: Artist, entrepreneur, inventor: Norman does it all.
He’s designed for the Guggenheim Museum, created art
for Nickelodeon, Disney, and the Oscars, and produced
an independent film, The Wedding Video, released by
Warner Brothers in 2004. Most recently, for your tech-ing
pleasure, he developed the Aero-Tray, a multi-functional
platform for laptops and tablets to help you work and
create while traveling.
