We're getting that "meta" feeling on this week's winner, "Real World: Paris." Not only is the cast a near parody of a typical Real World crew (see last week), in the second episode, the girls have already danced on a bar, cried over a guy and had jacuzzi moments. It's as if they know how they are supposed to act!
Meanwhile, on NBC's new entry, "For Love or Money" nobody seems to know what's going on. Rob knows nothing about the $1 million check the girls think comes with winning his heart. The girls don't know that the winner of Rob's heart will have to choose between him and the check.
