Show is upsetting local residents
MTV'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 Maui residents, the AP reports.
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."
Do you care if it's real as long as it's entertaining?
