If you thought The Hills were a fun place, MTV wants you to know they’re nothing compared to the islands.
The music channel’s latest faux-reality, semi-scripted hit TV show, Maui Fever, is causing waves of anger across the island by locals who don’t think the show accurately portrays life of residents.
They want you to think Hawaii is not just full of Brooke Burke bikini shots and the like. We’re not sure why.
The show focuses on a group of good-looking Mainlanders living in Maui. The cameras capture them performing their daily routines, consisting primarily of drinking, hooking up, surfing, hooking up, and drinking while hooking up.
“I thought it was kind of insulting…they just show partying,” Abcde Shibao, 16, of Lahaina said. “But (young people are) active in school, community and sports. We do other things besides partying.”
Abcde makes a good point. So far, Fghij has refrained from comment.
The show is produced by Morgan J. Freeman, who has also produced such television classics as Laguna Beach, Dawson’s Creek and pretty much every show that has to do with young good-looking people near water.
And we don’t see the problem with that. Who wants to watch nerds in the classroom? Give us Kristin Cavallari topless!
Or Heidi Montag possibly pregnant!
And, you know, maybe a music video every now and then.
