The Real World: Paris is the thirteenth season of MTV's reality television series The Real World, which focuses on a group of diverse strangers living together for several months in a different city each season, as cameras follow their lives and interpersonal relationships. It is the only season to be filmed in France.

It is the second season to take place outside of the United States, followed by Sydney, Cancun, and St. Thomas.


The Paris cast was assigned to write reviews for Frommer's, reviewing various Paris bars, clubs, and other attractions. A weekly bonus would be given to the housemates if they all completed their weekly assignments, which they rarely did. In fact, two of the castmates, Chris "C.T." Tamburello and Leah Gillingwater were caught submitting fake reviews.


The four-story 5,382-square-foot (500.0 m2) Château was built in 1869, and is located in Le Vésinet, a commune of France in the western suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 10.2 miles (16.4 km) from the center of Paris. Le Vésinet is one of the wealthiest suburbs of Paris, known for its wooded avenues and bourgeois mansions built around boating lakes and English-Style gardens. In some of the rooms of the Château, fake walls were built to protect 18 carat gilding on the original surfaces. The Château includes a wine cellar.
