Coral Smith Career
The Real World: Back to New York
Smith was a 21-year-old part-time student and nanny living in San Francisco when she decided on a whim to audition for MTV’s long-running reality TV series, The Real World and Road Rules.
She and two dozen finalists were housed together for a casting special leading up to the selection. During her stay at the casting house, Smith came into conflict with finalist Ellen Cho. Smith was ultimately selected as a cast member for The Real World, which would be set in New York, the first season of the show since 1992 to be set there.
During Smith’s season on The Real World, which aired in 2001, she came into conflict with Mike Mizanin over views he related to Smith from his uncle, who opined that black people were slow and uneducated.
Although Mizanin attempted to disown the comments as merely those of his uncle, Smith and their other housemate, Malik Cooper, who are both black, were offended. Coral and the other housemates went on to teach Mizanin about black cultures, such as the life of Malcolm X.
Observing that every season of The Real World features cast members in archetypal roles, Smith asserts that she was the “bitch” of her season, though she insists that her use of this label is meant to connote her assertiveness and outspokenness, and not lack of likability.
After filming The Real World, Smith went to work at a rape crisis center.
Reality television appearances
Smith has appeared on six seasons of the spin-off series Real World/Road Rules Challenge and has made it to the final mission on four of those Challenges.
During Fresh Meat, Smith’s partner, Evan Starkman, developed an abdominal hernia. Smith herself sustained a leg injury, and the producers of the show removed them from the competition. This marked Smith’s first Challenge in which she did not make it to the final mission.
Much curiosity and speculation have arisen over Smith’s relationship with Abram Boise from Road Rules: South Pacific during Battle of the Sexes 2. In response to a question by an MTV rep, Smith said:
I wouldn’t expect Abram to invest his time or pursue a woman like myself, that’s so mouthy and such a feminist I believe that I’m a strong woman and I believe that a lot of my morals and how I live my life was completely opposite than his.
I really feel like he has come into reality about meeting new people with me and I’m happy to be in his life, and I’m happy to teach him and help him, but it’s not hard. We’re going through this weird racial thing. He doesn’t bring it up and it’s not an issue with us, which makes it even more wonderful.
It’s just right and it’s something that happened naturally. He didn’t have to fight against this racist thing. I give all the credit to Abram for his changes, and for who he is now.
I believe that it was his ability to learn and be open to other people’s words. We both get really angry and we both are really sensitive and we both put up this front and inside, I believe Abram is one of the kindest and most gentle people I’ve ever met.
And I think it was his ability to get in touch with his own kind, gentle side that allowed him to like me anyway, despite my big giant mouth and how bitchy I can be
. And I think that we found common ground there, and because I was open to him, I feel like he was able to open up to me. And when Abram and I opened up to each other, it was a beautiful, beautiful friendship that I’ve never experienced before, ever. I’ve never met anyone like Abram. Never, and people underestimate him all the time.
However, Smith indicated in another interview that she and Boise were not involved in a romantic relationship and that any appearance to that effect was engineered through the use of selective editing on the part of the show’s producers in order to elicit ratings.

In January 2008, Smith appeared on The Gauntlet III. She voluntarily left towards the end of the Challenge. This marked Smith’s second Challenge in which she did not make it to the final mission.

On April 2, 2008, Smith appeared on the first ever Real World Awards Bash, winning the award for the “Roommate You Love To Hate”.
In 2013, Smith returned to television as host of The Real World: Portland on-air after shows and the season’s reunion show.
