Storyline

The Surreal Life is a show about celebrity has-beens, ones who were hot back in the day when they were on the A-List. This is what happens when they've fallen off that list long ago and are no longer in the public eye. As they live their day to day lives in a series of misadventures from odd confrontations to bizarre personal issues, they learn to live together as a family. Taking many people from the movie, television, and music industries, this is how they all live together in one Los Angeles mansion. It's how their life has become surreal. Written by monkeykingma

A mismatched cast
4 October 2004 | by (east orange, new jersey) – See all my reviews

I've seen little bits and pieces of the first season,all of the second season,and I have to say the third season is so far the best. Not only because Flavor Flav from Public Enemy and funny man Dave Coulier is in it. The third season is just more interesting and suspenseful. Unlike the second season which was a little dry at times but they all seem to get along and tolerate one another. The third season cast is more detached and self-centered. The only ones I 've seen to be more realistic is Dave and Flavor. Flavor's enthusiasm give this show life and without him this cast would appear to keep to themselves. Let's start off with Charo she may mean well but she is selfish,at the beginning of the show she down right takes charge of who should sleep where. She (Charo) been in America for a long time and you still can't understand what's she's saying. Right away she's giving orders around the house and naming the dog she found "Cuchi" which none of the others agree with. Brigitte Nelson is another selfish one who loves to lead men on (namely Flav) and then drop them like they never existed. Ryan Star who is young and bitter probably because she didn't get her career kicked off the way she wanted "thanks American Idol." Ryan is another one who is too particular and do not know to adapt and have fun. Poor Jordan Knight is too self-indulged to be interesting. I hope in the next couple of episodes this cast will stick together and bring more harmony to one another instead of worry about personality conflicts.
