Parodies, derivatives, and references[edit]

In the TV series Happy Endings, the fourth episode of the third season titled "More Like Stanksgiving" showed the characters watching clips from an episode of The Real World: Sacramento, on which they themselves were previously cast members. The character Brad Williams, played by actor Damon Wayans Jr., parodied DJ Will Gill, mimicking Gill's hair and wearing of long-sleeved shirts underneath T-shirts as seen on The Real World: Hollywood. The fictional season was said to have not aired due to one of the cast members burning down the house.[9]
