MTV’s “Real World” always includes a cast of seven strangers, but one Season 32 star won’t be completely unfamiliar to the network’s viewers. An “Are You The One?” alum will star in the upcoming season of the reality series.
Mike Crescenzo is starring on “Real World: Bad Blood,” as noted by the keen eyes over at The Ashley’s Reality Roundup. MTV fans will remember Mike, now 25, for his leave in the Season 3 finale of “AYTO?” after an explosive blowout with co-star Amanda Garcia. (Relive his controversial last few moments on the show here.)
An “AYTO?” star’s inclusion on this season of “Real World” isn’t the only change to the long-running series. MTV will also surprise its seven house guests with a twist by bringing in seven additional cast members who they each have a troubled past with. Mike will see the return of his former roommate, Peter Romeo. Mike’s bio for the show reveals his relationship with Peter was fractured after his friend moved his girlfriend of three days into their bachelor pad. Add in the fact that Mike owes Peter $2,000 and you’ve got a recipe for some real “Bad Blood.”

“Peter will tell you he’s one to hold a grudge and he’s certainly far from forgiving Mike for moving out on him, never paying him back and costing him the love of his love,” MTV reveals.
Other “Bad Blood” cast members will see the inclusion of their exes, rivals, frenemies, or estranged family members.
“The fourteen must learn to co-exist, get beyond the conflicts of the past, and resolve their unfinished business. ‘Real World Seattle: Bad Blood’ is the first time in the series’ history to have so many roommates come together to form new friendships, new rivalries, and new flames,” the network’s synopsis states. “As the dynamics change between the two groups of rivals, will they work out the bad blood between them? Or will their disagreements prove too much to overcome, leading some to call it quits?”
“Real World: Bad Blood” will take place in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Watch the trailer above and tune in to the season premiere Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 10 p.m. EDT on MTV.
