New Season of MTV’s ‘The Real World’ Features Grand Rapids Cast Member
This is the true story of seven strangers.
Can you believe “The Real World” premiered on MTV 21 years ago?
It’s back tonight at 10 p.m. with a twist.
“The Real World: Ex-Plosion” is set in San Francisco. This time around, all of the housemates’ exes move in while the roommates are away on a three-day boating trip.
If that’s not enough drama for you, the housemates can then vote their exes out of the house, but you know it won’t be that easy!
Cue the Michigan-made drama!
Cory Wharton is 22 years old and a graduate of Grand Rapids Community College. He was born and raised in Grand Rapids, but recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in fitness training and acting.
After an audition for the show, Corey got the spot and will be featured on the premiere tonight, which centers around a fling he has with cast member Jenny.
Will Cory be able to make up with his ex-girlfriend and form a friendship or more with her or does he find himself so attracted to Jenny that he wants to let Lauren go?
Oh, the drama. Good luck, Corey!
