If you hate the Real World, know you know why!

"Everyone has heard of one of the most popular rated reality television show, The Real World, and every season, thousands of people try-out to become one of the legendary "characters."

Sacred Heart offered the chance of a lifetime by hosting an open call audition to become involved in reality television. Students waiting to audition came dressed to impress ranging from girls in skirts and high heeled shoes, to guys wearing ties and collared shirts.

They were given a questionnaire to fill out, and a number which would entitle them to a 60 second audition, and, if the casting agents consented, the person would then obtain a second interview.

....
After the initial speech, Wallack then introduced the guest speaker, Ace from The Real World, Paris season. Ace walked out casually wearing a pair of jeans and a green t-shirt, (which he later revealed to be his favorite color), and a baseball hat with the letter A on the top.

Jen Pasqua, a freshman from Stamford, said, "The Real World, is one of my favorite shows, it was great to see one of the cast members up close!"

Ace began his presentation with telling the crowd about himself pre- Real World. He discussed his time at Georgia Southern University, his participation in his fraternity, his family, friends, ex-girlfriends and career accomplishments.

Following his discussion, he had a question and answer session, where he roused the audience to ask any type of question they wanted, including the dirt from behind the scenes on The Real World, or even a similar show with past cast members, titled Real World/Road Rules Challenge.

Questions ranged from what his favorite color was to his dating status. Another popular topic was the outcome of publicized hook-ups between cast members, including the ones he participated in.

However, essential questions (for potential reality cast members) such as what he regretted most, and his thoughts on his portrayal were also asked. His responses were short and sweet, and also very comical.

After several questions, the presentation came to an end, and Ace was polite enough to engage with the audience with a meet and greet. Students waited on line to introduce themselves, and even have their pictures taken with him.

When asked for a quote, Ace quoted his hero Ferris Bueller, "Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.""
