New York, NY, October 19, 2006 -- MTV premieres the 18th season of the hit reality series, �The Real World� on a new night, Wednesday, November 22nd at 10:00 PM (ET/PT), with 28 episodes from reality powerhouse Bunim-Murray.

Also, a sneak peek of the season premiere with extra casting footage will be available on MTV.com beginning November 15th.

This season viewers will see the cast go from nightlife in trendy Mile High City to wildlife in the Rocky Mountains. While experiencing all the excitement that Denver has to offer, the roommates will also work with kids who were affected by Hurricane Katrina for their job at Outward Bound Wilderness. Working with Outward Bound Wilderness, a non-profit educational organization, will take the cast to new heights as they learn to scale mountains and live without the comforts of home. The roommates breakaway during the season, escaping on an Asian adventure to Thailand. However, all is not well in the house this season when clashes over race, religion and homosexuality come to a head. And tensions rise when quick hook-ups and inter-cast romances complicate matters.

Fans can check MTV.com now to view the trailer, cast photos and bios and on demand, get extended profiles of each roommate and watch casting footage not seen on the special and get to know more about the roommates. Cast members� music video playlists will also be available online after the on-air premiere.

MTV.com will also premiere the �The Real World: Denver Casting Special� on November 8th, a week before it debuts on-air. Each week, beginning November 22nd, viewers can get primed for the next episode with an exclusive sneak peek of every episode a week before the on-air premiere. Plus fans can join in on �The Real World After Show,� a live post show after select episodes. This hosted talk show will feature Real World alumni as weekly guests and call-ins from �The Real World: Denver� roommates. Viewers will also be able to call into the show and ask the guests and roommates questions.

On VOD, fans can watch �Kiss and Tell,� a look at some of this season�s most hasty hook-ups, as well as �House Tour,� �Mile High Club,� a special tour of Denver hotspots featuring interviews with locals who mixed it up with the cast, and �High Altitude/Bad Attitude,� a special extended trailer that mashes beautiful shots of Colorado wilderness with the most heated fights of the season.

MTV Mobile will run the weekly sneak peeks and other short form material from mtv.com and VOD on all carrier distribution partners (Verizon Wireless VCast, Sprint, Cingular, Amp'd Mobile and Helio), mobile will also offer Real World text-message sneak peeks, where users can sign up to receive weekly sneak peeks via SMS, as well as The Real World �Fact or Fiction� game, a weekly feature with Real World trivia questions sent via SMS. An online mobile boutique will have ringtones and wallpapers from the show available at mobile.mtv.com

Meet this season�s cast:

Alex, 22 � Houston, TX

Alex is the product of a recipe that includes a heap of cockiness, a dash of street smarts, tad bit of sensitivity and a whole lot of sex appeal. However, this over confident, Texan flirt does not lack passion. He holds many things close to his heart; such as, his position as Division I swimmer at ASU, his family, his women (yes, plural!) and his never-ending escapades at the hottest parties. Yet, he yearns to build credit as a mature gentleman. Will the Real World house be a place for Alex to grow� or regress?

Brooke, 24 � Nashville, TN

Raised by two clinical psychologists in a sheltered environment, Brooke is not your typical southern belle. She�s grown up to be everything her society averts. Admitting to be an extremely sexual person, Brooke ended a long-term, interracial relationship just prior to joining the cast of Real World to see if her dream of stardom could become a reality. One thing is for sure, life for this dainty-looking, self-assured, independent young woman is ready for all the challenges the Real World has to offer.

Stephen, 22 � Washington, DC

Stephen is a charmer who flies in the face of convention. Originally from Sacramento, Stephen attends Howard University in Washington, DC. A hardcore Republican conservative who is against gay marriage, Stephen can be quite outspoken, but also deeply religious. He�s extremely ambitious and loves to be the center of attention. He�s also an expert in persuasion and salesmanship. There�s no question that he will expect to be top dog at the house. The problem is his roommates are probably thinking the same thing about themselves.

Colie, 22 � East Brunswick, NJ

This sorority president is probably the strongest personality in the house. Her disciplined attitude comprises of making profound promises, keeping her word, and displaying a go-getter attitude. Colie�s constant need for attention (especially from the male kind) and her free-spirited nature makes it easy to label her as the typical crazy party girl. But those who care to observe would notice a softer heart. Colie will be sure to stir things up, contributing her own brand of unpredictability to the mix.

Tyrie, 23 - Omaha, NE

Raised by a father from a military background, Tyrie is the product of a strict and aggressive upbringing. That served as the main roadblock for a healthy father-son relationship in the family. While Tyrie searched for a safe haven, he found refuge in a gang. Today, Tyrie makes an effort to leave his past behind and remain focused and determined to succeed in life. Already renowned on his college campus for his sharp wit, passion for politics, and big heart, Tyrie is ready to take things to the next level.

Jennifer, 22 � Martinez, CA

Jenn has played the typical happy roles in her life as the cheerleader, popular girl and party animal. However behind this fun-loving facade, this Oakland Raiderette cheerleader yearns for emotional attachment. Her quest for real happiness stems from her inability to allow herself to be vulnerable, love and trust. Can the experience of being one of seven strangers help her find her softer side?

Davis, 23 � Marietta, GA

Davis is the typical blonde-haired, blue-eyed, frat boy. Or is he? Hailing from the south, his upbringing was steeped in conservative Christianity. There�s only one issue...Davis is gay. He first realized this in sixth grade, and came out to his mom a few years later. Not surprisingly, Davis� revelation was not received well within his family. Applying for the Real World was a big step for Davis. He�s spent most of his life afraid to show the world who he truly is, but now he�s ready for that to change.

�The Real World� launched the modern reality television genre, and is the longest-running reality series in history. Past seasons have taken place in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Miami, Boston, Seattle, Hawaii, New Orleans, Chicago, Las Vegas, Paris, San Diego, Philadelphia, Austin and Key West. The show debuted its first season set in New York City in 1992. Each season, the show brings seven young strangers to live together in a new city and rolls the cameras 24-7, witnessing as their lives intersect, their ideas are challenged, and their passions emerge.

�The Real World� was created for MTV by Jon Murray and Mary-Ellis Bunim of Bunim-Murray Productions and Jon Murray serves as the Executive Producer. Jim Johnston and Joyce Corrington serve as Co-Executive Producers of �The Real World: Denver.� Drew Tappon and Jacquelyn French are executives in charge of production.

MTV is carried locally in Denver, CO by Comcast.
