WTF Wednesday, the Real Up and Humming

I’m sure most of you have seen the news reports of the ass hats dragging a shark behind their boat and laughing.  The FWC is investigating all of the men involved and for many of us who live or own homes in Sarasota County, we’re pretty happy about it.  We’ve seen many pictures of one of the offenders harming animals other than sharks so it seems to be a pattern, to me anyway.

MTV has a new show out called ‘Siesta Key’.  It premiered on Monday but the watch party that was planned in Siesta Key was cancelled when it was reported that one of the cast members admitted to being friends with one of the people in the shark dragging video and death threats were received.  For the record, that cast member has stated that he is not in the video nor did he take part in it.

What I find interesting about the show is that cast member Alex’s father, Gary Kompothecras, (of 1800 Ask Gary, yeah that guy) is the person responsible for this show because he thought that his son and all of his friends were interesting and should be on TV.  So he did what all good father’s with ample means do, he hired a producer to follow them around.

Now, because I have a home in Nokomis and visit the Sarasota area often, I already knew about the show and had heard all of the rumors about it when it was filming.  I fully admit that I planned on watching it just to see how it represented the area and also to see just how interesting the cast members are, you know, because if you Ask Gary he will tell you they are.

If you haven’t seen the show, don’t watch it for their personalities, you’d find a more interesting one in a stale piece of bread.  Also, I think it’s important to set the record straight because Gary and the producers would like you to think that this is the real Siesta Key.  In fact, they say so in the opening.

In reality, there are around 6500 or so actual residents on Siesta Key and the median age is around 62.8.  Lemme show you the REAL Siesta Key:

OK, this is not actually Siesta Key but you get the point.

If you’re at all interested in hearing how a former cast member of another realty show feels about this new show, check out this hilarious recap on Cosmo with Spencer Pratt.  I never thought I would say that in a million years.

  1. I don’t plan to watch, but then I don’t watch many of the so-called reality shows! Being a native Atlantan, I did watch one episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta a few years back, and I SWEAR I have never seen any housewives that resembled those crazy women in my neighborhood!!
