The Show Must Go On!

MTV “trashes” the rainforest for one of their idiotic reality shows:

Way to go, MTV. You try to convince us you’re dedicated to being green, going so far as to make this year’s Real World abode as green as can be and enlisting our very own Summer Rayne Oakes to give the cast a tour of the eco-features. Then, you go and trash a piece of rainforest for a brainless, scripted ‘reality show’. Nice job.
The ‘Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Island’ has been much-hyped on the network of late, promoted as a sort of ‘Survivor’ where contestants must perform tasks and survive in a ‘remote island environment’. But, Michael Drake of the Tree Climber’s Coalition has the inside scoop on what went down on the set of the show. Aside from the fact that they found scripts and that the set is far from remote, they also revealed some shocking destruction to the area where the show was filmed.
Check out all of the photos and the full account of what was left behind after the MTV crew vacated the site at the Tree Climbers Coalition website. It’s pretty sick. MTV, what excuse are you gonna throw at us to explain this away?
