Is anyone else thinking what I’m thinking? SINCE WHEN DOES SIESTA KEY LOOK LIKE THIS?
WHERE ARE THESE CRAZY HOUSE PARTIES I HEAR NOTHING ABOUT?
WHY IS EVERYONE SO PRETTY?
Yes, it’s kinda annoying, but not surprising. This series is supposed to be similar to MTV’s ‘The Hills’ and ‘Laguna Beach ‘which I think we all can agree are BARELY a ‘reality’ shows. It follows a very fabulous group of friends who return to Sarasota for the summer after their first year in college. The premiere date for the show is July 31st.
Recognize anyone? No? Me either. BUT what you will find interesting is that the hunky guy in this trailer is Alex Kompothecras. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, his DAD’S name certainly will. He’s the son of Dr. Gary Kompothecras, the famous ‘1-800-ASK-GARY’ chiropractor. Dr. Gary is also a producer on the show and led the charge to convince MTV to come down and film a pilot here. A lot of the show is also shot inside of the giant and gorgeous Kompothecras mansion.
The two spoke with the Tampa Bay Times about the upcoming series. Alex explained to them how it started, “My dad had some buddies come to town, and I took them out fishing, they thought our lifestyle was pretty unique. I kept hearing, ‘You need to do a show.’ Then my dad called a small production company to help do the pilot.”
“My son has such a nice lifestyle. I didn’t, growing up,” Gary Kompothecras said. “Seeing how much fun him and his friends were having, it felt like a good idea to show a positive image of growing up.” (Tampa Bay Times)
