PORTLAND The television reality show Real World Portland premieres Wednesday night on MTV and will feature life in the Pearl District.

I came to Portland to escape from my normal life, one cast member said.

I'm super pumped to be here. I've got some stuff to prove, another added.

The Real World has been around for more than 20 years, and was a pioneer in reality TV back in the 90's. But the show had never come to Portland before.

The Portland season was filmed last summer in the pearl district and the first episode will be broadcast at 10 p.m., Wednesday.
