Miami Social – Most Vacuous Reality TV Cast Ever?
Miami Social premiered on Arena TV last night and it must be the most unlikeable cast ever to be shown on reality TV. Please note I have never seen Rock of Love so that could possibly also have dibs on that title.
On the plus side the show did make me feel like I was a well rounded individual.
Basically most of the cast were egocentric, superficial, and lacked any intellectual depth at all.
We had Ariel Stein who is both a narcissist and a misogynist, who is not gay but like boy or girls as long as they are beautiful. In a funny scene when he was casting for a promotional event he grabs a female model and asks her if they have ever made out – he fails to notice that she is totally repulsed by the idea. Though I did learn from Ariel that in Miami girls need to have big breasts, unlike New York chicks. Who said reality TV is not educational?
Then there is George the “former playboy” whose girlfriend Lina who is Russian is caught out in a lie. She travels a lot for work for a real estate developer. She said she was going to New York, but was really “entertaining clients” on a yacht in St Barts. Ok you do the maths on that one.
George also uses his ex-wife Sorah as an emotional crutch.
Katrina, who apparently was on The Apprentice, is currently divorcing her childhood sweetheart Ben, as she cannot give him the emotional support he requires as she is a work alcoholic.
Michael is gay and appears to not do anything at all except gripe about not meeting anyone and getting crushes on his personal trainer.
There is also Maria the bi-sexual who is sending her 13 year old daughter to boarding school in Switzland and not for the first time. She feels the times they have together is more meaningful when they don’t see each other as much.
Lastly there is Hardy a nightclub promoter, who has a girlfriend Trixia who says she is in her early ’30’s but she actually looks 45. Which brings me to my last point they all pride themselves on being the body beautiful, but they are all really harsh and ugly and look year’s older then they really are.
And yes I am addicted to the show already. For a funny overview of the show and its cast check out this Miami New Times blog post.
Miami Social is on Arena on Thursday nights at 8.30pm.
