I Watched MTV’s Siesta Key So You Didn’t Have To
MTV debuted a new show on Monday night called Siesta Key. What is Siesta Key about exactly? Well it’s about a rich lifestyle in south Florida where these 20-somethings live essentially a fake life. Sound familiar? It’s cut from the same cloth that Laguna Beach then The Hills made their money on. Question is does Siesta Key match up to the nostalgia smash that was Laguna or the Hills. Let’s get you up to speed.
What show is it more like Laguna or Hills?
Honestly, it’s a blend of both. It has the Laguna element of being in your home town, but it takes The Hills side of things when it comes to being older. All of these kids are 21 and over which is honestly a great thing. It adds more drama like we see with shows like Vanderpump and many others.
Who is the Kristin and LC?
Not sure yet. It’s probably Juliette, but we didn’t really see her go after any girls like we saw with Kristen. Madisson (Side note: WILD way to spell that name) returns from school only to get crushed by her high school crush, Alex, which makes her seem LC-worthy yet she isn’t the classiest one of the bunch.
Alex is a toolbox
Holy fucking shit does this guy suck. Stephen was a lame ass too. Remember when he wanted to fight a midget? Jason was another massive idiot so I guess this all fits the billing. The fact he has a rapper cousin dripping in privilege is honestly perfect.
Kelsey is the classic new girl on the street
We’ve seen in these shows before that there has to be a ‘new girl’ even though she’s 22. She happens to meet one of the girls who shoehorns her into Alex’s big birthday rager. She’s a model and easily the most natural beauty of any of the girls on the show.
Is this show legit?
For what it is, yes. Will you compare to Laguna and Hills all of the time? Yes. Would I schedule your Monday around it? Absolutely not.
