Exclusive interview: Anika Rashaun Talks ‘Real World Seattle: Bad Blood” Drama, Joining Reality TV
If you are looking for a great reality show that is full of drama, then check out “Real World Seattle: Bad Blood.” On Thursday, I got the chance to talk to Anika Rashaun about the show, joining a reality series and the drama that viewers know is coming next. Here is what Anika had to say.
How did you end up getting cast on “Real World Seattle: Bad Blood”?
I was checking out the MTV website when I saw that the network was casting for the next season of Real World, and I just randomly thought to myself “Why not?”. So I applied and filled out a lengthy questionnaire and a just few days later I got a response and was invited to attend the open call. When I arrived at the open call, there were thousands of people waiting to be seen as well. Fortunately while I was there, a casting director told me they wanted me to proceed to the next step. After that came many more interviews, face-time calls, and flights to LA for the final round of auditions before I was eventually told I would be a cast member on season 32. It was a long process but definitely worth the wait!
Your ex-boyfriend showed up. Did you have any idea he was coming?
About a week into filming the season, the rest of the roommates and I began to suspect that there was going to be a twist so I had an idea something was going to happen early on. However, I was not aware that the Bad Blood cast members were going to stay in the house for the duration of the season, so I was not too happy about that news.
Any hints about what we should look forward to with him being there that you can share?
I think people will eventually get the sense that Will and I do our best to be cordial with one another. I can’t give out too many details, but I can definitely tell you there are a few storms that are going to hit the house this season.
Would you do reality television again after this?
Without giving away too much, I can definitely say that this isn’t the last time you’ll be seeing me on TV! I would only consider pursuing reality television opportunities that align with my brand, ASKANIKA. I’m working toward becoming a talk show host with my own show, and reality TV is a great foray into that, so I’d definitely be open to more reality TV!
