MTV: Real World Warns Cast Members of HIV, Scabies


Apparently if you are cast on MTV's long-running reality soap series, The Real World, the producers will not be held liable if you contract an STD while you're on the show.

The Village Voice has obtained a 30-page contract, which is typically confidential, warning that cast members may face contracting HIV and other STDs. Some interesting bullet points in the contract include:

- Producers are under no obligation to conduct background checks on your fellow cast members.

- If you contract AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases while filming ["gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), Chlamydia, scabies (crabs),'hepatitis, genital warts, and other communicable and sexually transmitted diseases or Pregnancy; etc"], MTV is not responsible.

- Interacting with other cast members carries the risk of "non-consensual physical contact" and should you contract AIDS, etc. during such an interaction, MTV is not responsible.

- You don't have STDs, but accept that other people on the show might.
