This show puts Laguna Beach to shame. It actually shows the reality of some young people, and the reality of what they get up to in this day and age. To be honest i think the whole concept is hilarious, because its completely the opposite to Laguna Beach where all the actors are rich. I did love Laguna Beach, but i like this one too because i can relate to it much easier than to a bunch of rich kids, who don't represent the true Orange County, where there are plenty of average young Americans too! Firstly i understand why some residents of Maui may have been offended by it. But in honest opinion it doesn't give a representation of Maui as a whole, only a representation of those specific actors and their specific lifestyles. Any viewer will understand that its not the real thing and that Maui is still a beautiful place with a lot to offer. However i think this whole argument has been blown totally out of proportion. MTV has always been known to showcase programmes which can be offensive. But that appeals to me and probably to most of MTV's viewers. If you don't like it then simply don't watch it! There's no reason to hate it just because of the location. You must consider that it is a TV show made for the purpose of entertainment, even though it may not be based on fact.
Lets not be selfish here. The fact it, Maui is being put on the map and I'm sure you cant complain. There will always be controversy for any reality TV programme on MTV. The Hills does not give a true impression of LA for instance! There are a lot of poor people there too. But the fact is, its a TV show based on the lives of those individuals.
I think its an awesome show, probably the best of MTV ever! The cast are absolute jokers, and partying is fun!
