�When we told potential cast members that we had chosen Key West as the location for season 17, we were met with universal cheers,� said Jon Murray, Creator and Executive Producer of �The Real World� and Chairman of Bunim-Murray Productions.

�Our island has much to offer,� said Key West Mayor Jimmy Weekley. �We have great weather, a beautiful coral reef and tropical waters, historic buildings and landmarks, superlative arts and museums, and limitless dining and nighttime entertainment opportunities.
