" The Real World You Never Saw: Las Vegas- Confessions from Sin City" takes viewers beyond the television program and deeper into the lives and adventures of Alton (rock climbing violinist), Arissa (tough girl with a heart of gold), Brynn (self-described party animal), Frank (small town boy), Irulan (artistic Aries), Steven (hunky hetero and bartender at a gay bar) and Trishelle (closet Southern wild woman). Normal people ten to do crazy things on vacation in Las Vegas, and MTV's handpicked seven include exhitionists who hold nothing back. The very first episode feature a hook-up and the second episode followed with another tryst, but this time with two girls. With that in mind, one can only imagine the extras that were too hot for MTV to air. This is the true story of seven prima donnas, picked to live in a casino and do what they do best: gamble their trust funds away and get falling down drunk trying to live it up in Las Vegas.
Much titillation is promised in this hour-long program, a sort of retrospective get-together with the seven participants from the Las Vegas version of MTV's The Real World
. But promising isn't quite the same as delivering, so those looking for loads of nudity and steamy sex--i.e., "the extras that were too hot for MTV to air"--are probably in for a disappointment. There's much discussion of such fascinating topics as breaking wind, snoring, burping, and, of course, sex, as Arissa, Alton, Brynn, and the others sit around rehashing their experiences, but due to the magic of video masking, precious little is actually seen. In the end, this is a package that will no doubt appeal to fans of this guilty-pleasure show, but it's hard to imagine how anyone else could get too hot and bothered, or even interested. --Sam Graham
