Why MTV's Real World Needs Local Party Animal Anthony Crapella

Anthony Crapella
It's easy to hate Anthony Crapella. He's loud and sarcastic and has a penchant for dropping his pants and streaking through crowds.

"My goal is to get famous before I'm famous," he boasts.

At first glance, the unemployed 25-year-old Coral Springs party bro looks like he just stepped off the assembly line of a guido factory. Gauges in each ear, an off-centered chin piercing, and shaved head accent his Italian complexion.

"You either love me or hate me," Crapella says. "I'm a good character. I'm a good face for reality TV."

And that's his ambition.



Earlier this month, Crapella uploaded a nine-minute audition tape that he hopes will land him a spot on the upcoming 28th season of MTV's Real World. In the video, Crapella is at once revolting and endearing. He shows off his fridge that's stocked with a few slices of cheese, some milk, condiments, and a dozen bottles of Yuengling. Then, true to form, he drops trou and strides through a dark parking lot wearing only a Dwyane Wade jersey to ring in the Miami Heat's 2012 championship.

But beyond these antics is a worried and ambitious byproduct of middle-class dysfunction. "My life has been all ups and downs," he says. "MTV might be my last shot, honestly."

For Crapella, a spot on the iconic reality show is a ticket out of a contorted life that's dealt him some severe blows. His dad was sentenced to 15 years for racketeering when Crapella was just a kid. Asked if Italian heritage and a dad in the clink for racketeering means Mafia, Crapella laughs, then says, "That's a word the government made up to make Italians look bad."

After making it out of high school in Plantation, Crapella went to a community college in Gainesville, where he studied graphic design and advertising. But there was a problem: He arrived when the Gators won both the NCAA basketball tournament and the BCS National Championship football game in a single year.

"I don't even remember those two years," he says. "I would wake up and there was either weed sitting there or beers sitting there. I did so much crazy shit up there, way more than just getting naked and streaking."

@chaz Stevens, genius. Every one is allowed one dream. Sorry yours didn't come true so know you spend your time bashing other people who have more ambition and a bigger Dick. if you claim to be a genius, learn that hating is an evil trait that takes any good you may have work so hard for. Back off... This kid might come off as a douche bag but in life every one has a dream, atleast home boy is pushing to live his. Thats more then you can say.

1. One could only imagine the ongoing biological experiment inside that hat.  2. That look on his face -- did someone just fingerbang his cat? 3. Dropping his drawers and streaking = unemployed.  Hopefully someday he'll understand the notion of cause and effect. 4.  There's no such thing as a hangover?  Stop drinking Zima, man up, and grab a bottle of Beam.  Then tell me there's no such thing. 5.  In Gwen Stephani's case here, is meme short for memetarded?

Seen it all before.  I still prefer the ones who did it that were not just trying to get attention.  I remember Doobie Tyler Whore doing the same things years ago, not because there was a camera around, but that he was royally obliterated. Sorry, this guy seems as fake as a three dollar bill and twice as worthless.

This guy is one of my best friends and this only a fraction of the fun we have. If he gets on the show Real World won't be the same. .... Oh and I'd Mr. Sweeney is going to talk about spelling errors - he should check his own first
