Siesta Key
Anybody seen this yet. I know they're trying to appeal to the Laguna Beach/Hills crowd, but it seems a bit too staged/forced.

Tried to watch it being from Sarasota, but won't get into it. Gets terrible press around here and the cast is having to deal with a lot of questions about their association with videos that keep showing up with their friends abusing sharks.

re: Siesta Key
I tried watching it and it's awful; this is coming from someone that's usually entertained by similar MTV programming.

Nobody has any personality, especially the main guy. The girls are hot, that's about it. There's really nothing interesting going on.

Add allegations of animal abuse and this show won't be around long.

Couldn't agree more. At least most fake reality shows create some sort of interesting hook to keep viewers invested, just like a The Hills did. But this show really has no personality or good "characters".

It really kind of reminds me of one of those sorority videos you see of some Florida college only this one is extremely well shot.

re: Siesta Key
All the girls look exactly the same and are about half as hot as the Laguna Beach girls.

The dudes are boring as shit, and there's the token wannabe white rapper guy of course.

The show was started by the main dude's dad (He's a famous chiropractor down in Florida). He was shopping around a show centered around his son and for some stupid reason MTV bit on it.

His dad is the founder of 1-800-ASK-GARY, a lawyer and doctor referral service. It's huge here in FL, he's obviously done very well for himself.

Not sure if he's worthy of the token label more than the ONLY black guy in the entire vicinity of the shows filiming area .

MTV producer convo:

"hey do you think we have too many white privileged millennials?...good point, lets add some diversity with ONE character"

re: Siesta Key
Question for those of you who seem to know the area:

Is Siesta Key area extremely wealthy or are most of these people normal middle class kids with the one really rich friend?

It was obvious on Laguna Beach that they were ALL very wealthy. This show kind of seems like the main dude is the only on with real money.

Siesta Key is wealthy, but there are more exclusive areas of Sarasota. SK is such a big tourist spot that there is a bit more diversity.

It's in the Sarasota High district, although with IB, Riverview probably gets a quite a few
