‘Real World Seattle: Bad Blood’

This long-running reality show returns to the Emerald City this season. But here’s a twist: not only will seven new strangers meet and share a loft on Capitol Hill, but seven additional people — who all have “bad blood” relationships with the first group — secretly meet in Portland and the two groups will eventually meet. Cue the drama. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, on MTV.
