Review: World of Jenks Sneak Peek

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Cable, MTV, Gossip, Video,


If you kept your channel tuned to after the VMAs (which ran long, big shocker), you saw the premiere of the sneak peek of World of Jenks, which celebrates its official premiere on Monday night. Andrew Jenks is a buzzworthy young filmmaker who is best-known for his Room 335 project, in which he moved into an assisted living facility.

The premise behind World of Jenks is simple: the filmmaker will move in with interesting individuals for one week and learn about their lives. He is no mere fly on the wall, however. Jenks asks questions, gets answers and explores each person’s background.

In the sneak peek episode, Jenks moved in with rapper Maino, who did hard time for kidnapping. Maino had only two conditions for the filmmaker: “No cryin’, no bitchin’.” Maino meant what he said. He is a hard-core partier. As he explained to Jenks, “I want to wake up almost dead.” And that takes a lot of partying.

The Hills: Of Course It Was Fake!


After the lackluster end of MTV’s The Hills, the media has latched onto just one thing to talk about: whether or not the show was fake. The confusion comes from the final scene of the , wherein the camera was pulled back to reveal an elaborate sound stage.

So, it was all fake? Of course it was all fake - and this isn’t even the first time the question has come up. MTV’s version of “reality” has always been the source of speculation, more so with than past shows offered by the cable network. Was every single bit of it fake?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, MTV, Video,

Since I stopped watching the back around the time MTV made its first trip to New Orleans, I really can’t speak about the program anymore. That said, I have a feeling a new version of Real World: Miami would probably look something like this.
