MTV: “Slednecks is a weekly half-hour comedic docu-series following a group of ‘outdoor tough’ friends living in the rural town of Wasilla, Alaska. With mountains and rivers as their playground, these close friends make the most of what they have while always having a blast doing it. Polar Bear plunges, airboating on ice, glacier parties, river wakeboarding, and human catapulting are just some of the adventures these ‘Sled-necks’ get into, while also navigating dramatic friendships and relationships in the prime of their lives.”
Slednecks premieres October 30 on MTV. Check out the trailer below.
As if her delusions of grandeur aren't troublesome enough already – Farrah Abraham has been named Google's most searched for reality TV star in 2013.
According to Google Zeitgeist, the search phrases "farrah abraham backdoor", "farrah abraham video", "farrah abraham tape", and "farrah abraham full" were wildly popular between May 5 and May 11. Gross. Considering Vivid released the Teen Mom star's porn video on May 6, I'm willing to bet the vast majority of Farrah's fans were more interested in her backdoor than her reality star status.
In the good news department, interest in Farrah (via Google anyway) has been declining since July. Also? Kim Kardashian ranked a lot lower on the list than I would have guessed. My heart sings! However, Teen Mom and Kardashian stories constantly end up at the top of Reality Tea's most viewed list, so neither Farrah nor Kim is going to fade into obscurity anytime soon. Unfortunately.
Earlier this month, MTV ceased production and canceled BUCKWILD following Shain Gandee's sudden death. Despite the show's decent ratings, MTV concluded, "Given Shain's tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him."
BUCKWILD producer J.P. Williams did not take kindly to the news, bashing the network for its teen pregnancy shows, and vowed to acquire the rights to continue the show with another network. According to Williams, his negotiations with MTV came to an abrupt end on Friday, and he did not win. Williams went on to accuse MTV of hypocrisy.
Apparently, BUCKWILD star Shae Bradley and her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Jesse J, made a sex tape pre-BUCKWILD.
The show's producers reportedly knew about the tape but urged Shae and Jesse to keep it a secret. However, in the wake of BUCKWILD's cancellation, the tape is being shopped around. Shocker. Do kids work real jobs anymore?
So, the producer of BUCKWILD isn't going to give up without a fight, is he? After the tragic death of Shain Gandee, MTV pulled the plug on filming the second season. Producer J.P. Williams wasn't happy with network's decision, and his comments about Teen Mom didn't sit well with Jenelle Evans since she's such a pillar of the responsibility.
J.P. Williams is determined that this show has the recipe for success, regardless of what crazy kids they get to star in it. He doesn't need West Virginia, and he certainly doesn't need MTV. BUCKWILD 2.0 will happen, y'all–especially if J.P. Williams has anything to say about it!
Personally, I found Shain to be the breakout star of the show, and I cannot imagine watching a single episode void of his beautiful smile and endearing personality. My gut tells me that MTV feels the same way.
While BUCKWILD's producer and cast are upset about the cancellation, the mayor of Charleston, West Virginia is blissfully happy. "I'm relieved and happy the show is canceled, and so is everyone around here," Mayor Danny Jones shared with TMZ. "The show does nothing for us and exaggerates every negative stereotype about us."
According to J.P., on Friday, MTV told those involved with production that BUCKWILD will continue as planned. Then, on Tuesday, MTV canceled the series. No explanation was given.
"This is the network that has shows about teen pregnancy. They'll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child, but a kid dies by accident doing what he does for a living [mudding] and they cancel the show,” J.P. said. “There's something that smells of s–t here on every level."
