The Real World: Las Vegas (2002) is the 12th season of "The Real World." It aired from September 17, 2002 to April 1, 2003.
It is the first season to be filmed in the Mountain States region of the United States, specifically in Nevada.
The season featured seven people who lived in a converted penthouse suite on the 28th floor of the Las Vegas Palms Casino and Resort. This was the first of two seasons to be filmed in Las Vegas.
In 2011, the show made a return in the twenty-fifth season, "The Real World: Las Vegas (2011)." This season (along with the Denver season) is the highest number to date.
Due to the popularity of the season, MTV ordered the spin-off miniseries "Reunited: The Real World Las Vegas" that reunited the cast to live in the same Palms Hotel and Casino suite they filmed the original series in, five years after filming ended on "The Real World: Las Vegas."
