Great news! The Real World Austin is available to stream online (on Facebook Watch) which mean I can FINALLY watch it! I missed it the first time around bc I’d given up on #therealworld, but then I moved to Austin and I wished I had watched. Now I can! Streamed the very first episode last night. It’s interesting to see how much the city has changed. AND interesting to see Wes so young bc I’ve watched him compete on #thechallenge through the years. But back to the ATX, here are a few screen grabs I took of the house (now Vince Young Steakhouse) and city scenes featured on the show. I love that they shot the opening credits in the Guero’s courtyard. And if you ever went to Rio Grande restaurant (pre Vince Young), that pool and the neon signs were utilized as decor. And OMG, look how much the #Austin landscape has changed!!! I’m going to do a post about each episode so if you want to watch too, you can comment on those posts right here and we can discuss what fun discoveries we make while watching. This serves as the post for ep 1. Stay tuned for more! #mtv #realworld #downtownaustin #atx #365thingsaustin #oldschoolaustin #oldaustin #wbw #gueros #wesgergmann #challenge #facebookwatch #facebook #igaustin #rewind #flashback #throwback #austinblogger #atxgossip
