TLC Presents: Sorority Girls Gone Bad!

by at . Comments

Sorority girls aren’t known for being nice, and they certainly weren't on TLC's latest show, which premiered last night. The premise of this new reality series?

Five American Sorority Girls attempting to establish Britain’s first ever sorority, Sigma Gamma. Obviously. We were wondering when we'd see such a thing!

When the girls are introduced to a new potential pledge named Claudia who is wearing short shorts, high heels and a fake tan, they rip her to shreds.

“I think when you’re first getting to know someone you don’t necessarily want to make judgments right off the bat,” one nice American mean girl says.

“But you can’t help it and sometimes you’re just like ‘oh that girl is looking a little slutty,’ but you never want to say that because that’s rude.” So ...

“Instead you just say she’s looking like a slooter cahooter,” the girl reasons, teaching British sorority hopefuls the right way to be bitches. Word.

TLC says in its synopsis that on Sorority Girls, “cultures will clash and girls will be judged and humiliated all for the sake of earning sisterhood.”

Brain cells and faith in humanity will also be diminished.


Thought the 5 American girls were NOT representative of American Sorority girls. These girls acted like tactless Bitches.


I am absolutely stunned on how uptight and how quick we are to judge without all facts. First of all, this was a British TV show(picked up by TLC),and since it is a BRITISH SHOW it "sensationalize" aspects to make it more entertaining to THEIR (UK) audience. That said, EVERYONE of you is naive if you don't think there aren't noticeable differences between their own sororities from state to state and school to school. The 5 American girls went to the UK with the very best intentions of starting the first ever UK sorority. Since it is a television show, all behavior by the BRITISH contestants were filmed (good and bad). However, the 5 American girls DID NOT encourage rowdy/inappropriate behavior at any time; in fact it was just the opposite. They did weed through the contestants and did come up with 5 respectable choices at the end.


Any organization, whether they are greek or professional, will always have members that do not uphold the standards at all times. This is a part of life and stereotyping has been a part of our upbringing as a society. As a greek member, it is not my duty to hide members who make poor decisions, but to represent my sorority and myself in the correct manner. If a sister or a friend in general creates a reputation and it becomes my reputation, I feel sorry for the people who do not want to learn that not everyone is like that, myself included.


HA. speaking as an ex member of a prestigious southern greek system, this this MUCH nicer than actual recruitment. you don't even talk to the girls really, they judge you based on appearance or how much money your family makes, or supposedly makes. The girls in sororities in the southeast dont even do sorority philanthropy anymore! they have "swaps", date parties, etc. OR better yet what really happens is BS secret societies and drugs & alcohol abuse and slutty sex (sleeping around with multiple different guys despite who they have slept with or sleeping with currently) I hope TLC REALLY exposes how disgusting sorority life has become before it gets any worse.


This is an absolute disgrace to proud Greek women everywhere. I truly hope that young women watching this do not believe this is an acurate portrayl of sorority life WHATSOEVER.
