The Shire Promo – Starts Monday 16 July at 8pm

Well rumours of reality TV show The Shire demise have now been proven to be wrong with a promo of the upcoming series now out.

If you missed it here it is. It does not give much away in regard to what the actual plot of the show will be, however clearly they plan on showing a lot of beach action. I suspect the show could also have been called Young, Dumb and Vacuous.

UPDATE: TEN have now announced a start date for the show and is Monday 16 July at 8.00pm.

The press release describes the show as:

Launching on Monday July 16, 8pm, the series follows the lives and loves of a group of young Australians who are destined to become some of the most talked about people in Australia. Now you can meet the hot surfers, the vivacious models, the girls next door, the on-and-off couples, the loveable rogues, and the entrepreneurs who are set to become household names.  From their hectic social lives to problems with work and family,

Then it goes onto describe the cast as:

Gabrielle, 20, direct sales assistant; Tegan, 24, Singing teacher and waitress; Andy, 22, electrician; Nikee, 20, model, Mitch, 23, stonemason; and Kerry, 26, restaurant manager.

Not sure I can spot the entrepreneur in that lot.

Your thoughts?

Being Lara Bingle could have been called Young Dumb and Vacuous too RR.

Looks to me like channel 10’s version of home & away.

I think they forgot the “Really stupid” at the end. ;p

I thought the Mayor of The Shire – Carol Proudfoot, or whatever she’s called – claimed victory at banishing the forces of evil (a.k.a Ten) and getting this show scrubbed? – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/entertainment/sutherland-mayor-carol-provan-claims-victory-as-channel-ten-removes-the-shire-from-its-upcoming-schedule/story-e6frf96o-1226407046241

I don’t suppose she also tried to buy David Jones shares last week?

I’m shocked … they actually had someone in the promo with dark skin!

I can’t wait for this – people have been so anti this show and so against it… but to be honest I think it’ll just be some fun guilty pleasure viewing and personally I LOVE THAT.

I think they’ll benefit from coming out after Bingle. Anyone would look like Einstein after that hot mess.
