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
The show's producers claim that after the success of the first season, thousands of applicants had applied for season 2. See more »

People alive don't understand me. How in the world a ghost is going to understand me?
Dr. Larry Montz:
Because they communicate more telepathically than verbally, so they're not going to be worried about your accent.

The decline of Western civilization: As seen on TV.
The Surreal Life is basically a bunch of washed up celebrities and other has-beens that share a house in the latest of VH1's incessant network of Reality-TV torture.
I have watched a few shows of the recent season of the Surreal Life (the one with Peter Brady) and it is by far the most vapid experience of my life, watching a bunch of retarded exhibitionist has-been "celebrities" trying to gain as much attention by being as crude as possible. This show gives me a homicidal twitch, as I am consistently both annoyed and shocked that VH1 managed to pack in a house a handful of the most embarrassing people on the planet, especially Chyna, that model that near-violently obsesses about Peter Brady, that moron from the Go-Gos, and the guy who played Mini Me.
Ever get the need to dry heave, then tune in.
VH1, you officially suck!
