The Real World St. Thomas Looks Awful
Remember in Superbad when Seth told Evan that getting a breast reduction was "like slapping god across the face for giving you a beautiful gift"? Well that's exactly how I felt after watching this trailer for the upcoming season of the Real World: St. Thomas. I mean here these people are on a beautiful, tropical island, with a crazy ass house, no supervision and an unlimited supply of alcohol and they literally don't do one single fun activity in the entire preview. And spare me the whole "maybe they're saving it for the season" spiel, because you and I both know that's not how MTV operates. If something crazy were to happen they would have teased the shit out of it. Remember when Snooki got cold clocked in the face by that Cortland bro in the season one trailer for Jersey Shore? They literally showed that punch eight thousand times before it was actually set to air. If there's no cut to black fight scene, the season ain't worth watching.
Real World St. Thomas looks like The Simple Life meets Bug Juice: My Summer At Camp. Going on nature hikes, feeding animals and playing pranks like they're at a middle school sleepover. A couple harmless make outs, a cannon ball into an empty hot tub, group snorkeling? CMON SON! The only scene that slightly sparked my interest was when the ginger punched himself in the head and even that looked half assed. I didn't think anything could be worse than last season in San Diego, but right now this summer is looking pretty bleak. I'd rather watch CT lift weights, eat steak and read the Boston Herald in his Bahston accent for an hour each week than this crap.
Somebody wake me up when The Challenge starts back up again.
