I don't mind that this show is scripted. Some of the cast try pretty hard to make it seem authentic. But, boy, would it get a lot more entertaining if they ditched Alex. I realize the whole point of the show is that Alex's daddy is trying to buy him reality show fame, but MTV should just cut Alex and cast a more charismatic aspiring reality show star.

Lol. Alex is trying SOOOO hard to be the great guy, but everyone sees through him and thinks he's awful. I'm sure there are plenty of young, dumb, pretty girls in Florida that go gaga for him because he's rich and on tv, though. Sigh.

When is Season 3 going to air ?

Actually season 2 starts on Jan 22.  My DVR is set to record and looks like there are trailers on MTV.com.

Season 1 is considered to be all the 18 eps which have aired so far.

There might be some pressure on this show, since The Hills reboot is coming some time this year.  

Meh, I’d rather watch a new season of The Challenge than either but I guess this will occupy he time slot for a couple of months.

The reporters from the local newspaper who’ve been doing podcast recaps put out a preview.

They saw that they’d been filming over the summer but MTV didn’t confirm this upcoming second season until December.so they weren’t 100% sure it would be back on MTV or some other channel.

They’ve been following some of the cast, including the new cast members.  Chloe has a bf in Denver and has been living there, only coming back to film.

Kelsey is dating a hockey player in her native St. Louis.

Madison has been getting photographed a lot on Instagram but not clear if she’s being professionally managed.

they say the show hasn’t brought hordes of tourists to the area.  They wonder if the show will deal with red tide, which was a big deal in FL in general and the Sarasota area in particular.  They filmed when it was at its worst.

It's great to have the show back. We frequently visit Sarasota so I enjoy the scenery. I do wonder if they will show the effects of the red tide on the beaches from last summer. There was still some red tide when I was there in December.

I find it strange that Alex & Juliette's parents had not met each other before. Juliette's mom seems to be very skeptical of their relationship. Alex's dad called him a dog.

Chloe is still creating chaos by bringing Cara to the party.

It’s not even clear if they socialize or just encounter each other for the cameras.

Looks like Madison doesn’t care about doing anything with her degree so she hangs around to film the show.  Is there even a big city nearby where there would be engineering jobs?

They’ve returned to show8ng a lot of ass shots like they did with the initial run of the shows.

Otherwise this is just teen drama except they’re all in their 20s now.  Well Juliette is young and maybe she sees becoming a housewife even though she’s finishing up school.

The cast certainly is aware of money, who has it.  They talk about it often, with Madison noting Ben has money and someone else mentioning how Cara comes from money.  But Garrett is the only one with a real job, while Brandon and Kelsey pursue glamor jobs.

Chloe getting into a fight by bringing Cara is probably scripted.

The Juliette mean girl act seems pretty real.  Her telling Alex that he has to be mean to Chloe and Cara seems like something even the most calculating producer wouldn’t do.

I am old as fuck but was so there for this show it's pathetic. And it totally delivered. The only thing is my recording cut off at the end of the second episode!!! What was Alex's secret.

Pauly is a terrible person. I wanted to smack him when he told the other guy that the problem was that he wouldn't bow down to Alex. WTF

I'm not surprised the parents had not met. They do not run in the same circles. Juliette is so insecure it's sad. And notice how she said she's the one driving four hours every weekend during the semester to visit him That's telling. Her mother needs to have a serious discussion with her about having some self-respect.

Chloe is still very messy. 

What the hell is Madison's problem? She needs to figure out a life plan. Silly goose never even did an internship in her field. WTH????

Chloe supposedly told Alex that she's into him.

So Alex says that's why Chloe is trying to sabotage his relationships.

 

As for Madison, she's trying to get something going on instagram and modeling.

I was really confused with the flashbacks they kept showing labeled as “last year.”  I thought a lot of what they showed was from season 1, aren’t we on season 3?  Wasn’t Alex’s mouth wired shut most of last year / season 2?  

And I’m gonna sure Jan on Alex’s big secret.  At least in the context he is presenting it.  Do I think that at some point Chloe and him were drunk and she said those things?  Quite possibly yes.  But the whole premise is that they have been ride or die besties forever.  It could have been a platonic admission.  Or even a friendship pact, i.e. “where we’re old and not married we should get married” type of thing.  I don’t think Chloe is repressing some unrequited love for Alex.  But then again I’m not Team Juliette.

This is season 2.

There were two parts to season 1.

Now maybe they filmed season 1 3 years ago and then waited a couple of years before it was aired.

 

As for the big reveal, it's fake.  Chloe lives in Denver with an off-camera boyfriend.  She flew in to film.  So yeah they want to set up this big conflict with Juliette not wanting to hear Chloe badmouth Alex or bring Cara around.  But the way she's been putting down his behavior, does that mean she's secretly carrying the torch for him?

Geez they couldn't have come up with something better?

Home sick a couple days and watched this for the first time.  Don’t know anything about them besides what I read here. 

Arent these people supposed to be mid 20’s? They sure do act like they are still in high school. 

Chloe: for being a cute girl she sure does have an ugly personality.  What a shit stirrer!  I sure hope this entire show is “scripted “ because who would want to deal with her professionally asa real estate agent after seeing this? What is her end game in causing all the drama? Does she have a secret crush on that Alex guy? 

Cara: she seems so above the drama, why is she even bothering with this show and these people? 

Juliette:  jealousy is not pretty.  You need to get over your hang ups about your boyfirends ex’s or you guys will never have a successful relationship.  I don’t get girls like her - hates all the girls that have slept with her boyfriend yet keeps the boyfriend around without question??  

Alex: uggg Ogre Shrek looking guy - awful. What do these people find so attractive about him - I guess it’s the money. 

Pauly: I think that’s his name - Alex’s friend???  What a clinger!  Telling that Jared kid he needed to bow down to Alex, and that he needed Alex more than Alex needed him - good grief.  

Jared: why are you even in this show.  You are way better than these people - much more mature and have seen and done thangs with your military career. I sure hope you don’t “bow down”.   

 

This show and people are just awful.

Alex being Alex again, with the verbal belittling of Juliette, just as he did in season 1 with Madison.  His father hands him a $250k Bentley and then he's talking up about all the things he does for Juliette, who was too blatant about how she expects him to pay all the time -- your parents are rich as f---.  Alex isn't paying for anything, it's his parents right?

OK, I'm sure the kids are conscious of who has money but I wouldn't have expected them to talk about it so much in their convos.  Maybe that community is ostentatious about flashing signs of wealth -- is that what Florida is like? -- and so people notice and talk about it all the time?

Then Alex belittled Juliette's ambitions to own her own business -- some kind of retail store -- though he had told his father Juliette could be the one he marries in a couple of years.  But his father didn't seem too sure, just didn't seem to see her as part of what he expected from his son.  Maybe he would look to fix him up with the daughter of another rich family than a commoner like Juliette.

Madison and Ben have the awkward conversation about what they are with Kelsey, who meanwhile is making out with Jared even though she's suppose to be serious with a hockey player?  That's when you suspect producers of telling these cast members to play a role and say or do things they really wouldn't do.  Kelsey has been portrayed as someone who cheated on poor Garrett so of course she's going to cheat again.

Meanwhile, they are going to pair Garrett and Cara because what, they're two attractive cast members who are otherwise single and free to date each other?

The FaceTime session between Brandon and his gf seems fake.  Since Brandon cheated on Madison, this new gf who wasn't around is going to be automatically suspicious of him and make some big deal out of him hanging out with Alana?

 

Several of the relationships seem to be potential love triangles, with one of the partners likely to cheat.  Seems like that's the kind of situation producers could set up or depict, to maximize the potential for drama.  Maybe this kind of soap opera plotting is what they think they will get kids 14-25, probably around their target audience, to keep watching?

I didn't mind Chloe, because she's been treated like shit by Alex and by extension everyone else who thinks Alex is some kinda douche god.  But I lost respect for her when she basically begged Alex to let her come to Miami, followed by begging Juliette.  Girl, get some self-respect.  Also, Miami is 4hrs away; you don't need Alex's money to get there, nor to party there.  

Juliette will continue to take Alex's shit cause she wants that ring.    She also needs to grow her self-esteem.

I love that Kelsey keeps insisting she never cheated on Garrett.  I don't understand why she keeps getting into relationships if what she really wants to do is fuck around.

Agree. It's a shame how much I like this show AND Spencer Pratt's recaps in Cosmo!

The convos are pretty tired.  I think they try to write witty lines for these dullards but the lines aren't great.

I would imagine if this show continues at all, it will be only because of young attractive people in swim wear?

Because once The Hills reboot starts, why would they need this show?  Well they're younger and prettier than the Hills cast, so there's that.

Hills reboot probably has greater potential to be entertaining than this show though.

Chloe told off Cara, Camilla told off Brandon, Canvas told off Story, her mother.

See a pattern here?

You know these confrontations are faked when they're always lit and framed perfectly for the cameras.  It's as if the camera crew planned where the people yelling at each other would be standing.

It was like that last season.  The cameras were in place to perfectly film Brandon doing his walk of shame and then when Madison confronted Brandon and broke up with him.  

The confrontation with  the closeted guy they had last season, who had a showdown with his homophobic mother on camera, was better than Canvas telling off her mother about how neglected she was.

But this week was rough for Canvas.  Her "friend" Tawny doesn't date girls but apparently likes playing tonsil hockey with them on camera.  Now the previews show her with one of the other guys.

Pauly also had it tough.  He had to suppress the urge to drink or get high for one whole evening, just to impress his grandmother, who controls his inheritance.  BTW, he's been struggling in general these days, after blowing $500k in 3 years in Sarasota.  But he was persuading a dream to be the next Vanilla Ice!

Meanwhile, Kelsey had to own up to her boyfriend that she kissed or went skinny dipping with Jared and he leaves in a huff.  No actually in a plane.

But not before we have Chloe and Kelsey telling off each other!  Did Alex's dad hire screenwriters who were Bravo reality show rejects?

Am I looking in the right place for his recaps? All I find are these Q&A-style ones on Cosmo's site that made me think they were just excerpts from something longer. As someone with an inexplicable love of Spencer Pratt (his name is our wi-fi password, haha!), I don't want to miss a single word!

Eh the manufactured drama is getting tiresome.

The “friend group” — you know it was the producers who came up with such a lame term — gets together at a bar and Alex starts insulting Juliette, something he does all the time.  Paulie piles on.  Juliette storms off in a car with a driver.  Alex calls over Cara, who has an expensive designer bag that all the girls instantly recognizes.  Chloe takes a pic of them and texts it to Juliette.  

And there are cameras right there in the car to capture her getting that text!  What are the chances that they just happened to be in the right place at the right time!

She tells the driver to turn around and take her back to the bar and the cameras are there to show the car turning around.  How did they “anticipate” that these things would happen and have cameras in the right places?

It’s mind blowing how these reality show producers can see the future!  It’s as if they know in advance what these young adult are going to say and do in front of the cameras!

Meanwhile poor Garrett, who has better highlights than Juliette, is going to have his girlfriend cheat on him with Alex, who’s already banged everyone.

Again!

Sweet Madison gets her baller bf Ben to move to Siesta Key and look at million dollar pads by the beach but she doesn’t want him to move just for he.

Well why else is he moving there Ms. Engineering Degree?  It’s a community of old rich people.

Meanwhile, she pisses of Ben by agreeing to shoot the music video with Brandon, who’s pissing off his gf, not just with Madison but with what’s her name the singer.  So Ben flirts with Tawni which pisses off Canvas, who was pissed off with Story, her estranged mother.

Are Canvas and Story real people or designer colognes?

So much drama in paradise.  But there’s more, Juliette catches Alex in bed with another girl after they had reconciled.

Lot of unhappy relationships and we know because they keep talking about their “relationships.”

They should talk about their trust funds because none of her work but they have boats, baller pads, apartments all over the world, talking as if it’s them, not their families which have all this money.

If they had all this money, why are they all bothering with this low rent show?  Well it’s a vanity project with Alex, who’s supposedly going to become a lawyer.  But why would the other kids parade their wealth on TV?  Add fame to their fortune?
