Bevy of locals make cut on MTV reality shows

Move over Mr. Boston. There's a crop of locals in line to take away some of your nose-picking "I Love New York" reality TV thunder.

MTV unveiled its Tila Tequila-inspired "A Double Shot At Love" with its blonde Ikki twins--Vikki and Rikki--and an unlikely trio of locals currently gracing the small screen vying for some twin action.

Paul (a soft-spoken computer engineer), James (a conservative salesman with a thick Boston accent currently living in NYC) and Elise (a super-competitive lesbian trainer) all made it past the first-round eliminations on the season premiere. Watch the trio on "A Double Shot At Love" airing 10 p.m. Tuesdays on MTV.

Last June, casting directors from executive producer Ryan Seacrest's camp were cruising Boston's Ned Devine's at Quincy Market in Faneuil Hall searching for some fresh meat for Brody Jenner's new MTV project "Bromance."

Luke Verge (pictured above), a self-described "designated party animal" and 24-year-old substitute elementary school teacher from Medford, as well as 24-year-old Mattapoisett resident Gary Vaughn made the cut. "Bromance" premieres 9 p.m. Monday, Dec. 29 on MTV.

Also, MTV recently announced its cast for "The Real World: Brooklyn" slotted for the boob tube Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 10 p.m. Scott, a 24-year-old "muscle head" from Salem, NH, rounds out the cast of eight (yes, this is the first season MTV deviates from its cast of seven strangers formula) with his "award-winning abs," which were featured in Men’s Health magazine.
