TV alert: “Real World: Sydney” features bisexual cast member


Tonight’s premiere of The Real World: Sydney (10:00 p.m. on MTV) introduces us to Shauvon Torres. She’s 24; she’s a sex columnist; she’s a student at Sacramento State; she’s bisexual. She’s probably going to keep things interesting.

And you’ve probably seen The Real World, so I’ll spare you the summary. When it first hit the airwaves, I thought the show was the coolest thing ever, but I eventually came to see it as the most incontrovertible proof that growing up is the coolest thing ever. The so-called real world, as envisioned by the series, is often just a shallow, selfish display of drama and whining, with the requisite hot-tub kissing scene thrown in for good measure.

But, well, Shauvon seems kinda cool, as well as kinda hot. Apparently she just broke off an engagement to a man who asked her to choose between him and her career. Reminds me of the time my sister’s boyfriend asked her to choose between him and softball. You can guess how that turned out.

Reviews of the Real World preview hint at Shauvon possibly hooking up with another cast member, Isaac (sigh), and various bloggers have highlighted her sense of humor. I always say funny is sexy.

Anyway, here’s a picture of Shauvon and Trisha, another cast member:
