Ladette To Lady Australia- Season 2 – A Bit Formulaic
The girls better be skanky this series, because in the first season the Australian girls were not as skanky as the ones in the UK version, they are just out of control.
I found the first episode to be a tad formulaic – the girls were the “worst the teachers had ever seen”, all the girls had drinking problems, and then to liven things up alcohol was introduced. I think some of these girls would do better on Celebrity Rehab or at least enter the twelve step program.
A lot of the show tonight felt set up particularly the opening scenes in the airport car park, and on the bus to the school.
However Letitia needing to go to the toilet did appear genuine. Letitia whose vices are drinking (naturally) and fighting, became justifiably agitated. It appears she did not wet her pants, but I would have thought it was lady like to stop the bus to allow someone to relieve themselves.
The week started off with a de-metalling of the girls, with some the girls taking out so many piercings I am surprised they got through the metal detectors. Piercings these days appears to have morphed into some sort of body mutilation.
There were the usual classes elocution, etiquette, and flower arranging given by post-menopausal women, who even though they are “ladies” appear to not very happy and extremely uptight.
After finding out the girls are going to be hosting a garden party, they then had a lesson in how to make a delicious punch. Yes you can see where this is going.
The lesson was hosted by a very hunky Viscount Harris. One thing I noticed this time was the lads were a bit better looking, I wondered if it was the economic times in the UK, and they needed to supplement their trust funds.
Needless to say Mrs Harboard then left the girls alone in the room after the lesson to clean up. Yes this was standard Ladette To Ladies fare. They skulled drinks, and hid booze. Letitia took the fall for one of the missing bottles and had to clean two bathrooms.
At the garden party Jessica a 19 year old who is a stripper with an exhibitionist streak managed to score a lad. In forty minutes of TV she managed to show her breasts, flash her butt, suggest lewd things with a phallic symbol to the Viscount, snog a guy, and cry twice. This girl will be on the show for awhile. NW last week stated that Jessica has changed her ways since she returned home. She is now living with her parents, has broken up with her girlfriend and has been in a movie. If she has gone from ladette to movie star those wannabe actresses in the Beauty and the Geek House will not be happy.
We were also introduced to Kaila who is a drinker as well as unemployed whose misdemenour was chatting back in cooking class.
Donelle is a super fit girl who likes drinking and getting aggressive she seemed to be not taking it too seriously and managed to get in trouble a few times.
Shari a hard drinking construction worker who likes taking off her clothes, managed to latch onto a lad at the garden party, and was caught jokingly flashing her underwear at him. NW said that this former private school girl has dated two men at once without either of them finding out about it. Gosh if that is ladette behaviour, half of the girls in Sydney would be sent to Eggleston Hall.
She was another one who broke down in the elimination interview. Which are not really interviews but just the teachers telling you how awful you are.
We were not “introduced” to all the girls tonight so hopefully they will get more screen time next week.
Letitia was the one to be eliminated, and she was pretty non-plussed about it.
The first episode of the show was not enthralling however they did manage pique enough interest to ensure me tuning in again next week.
