Okay, if anyone honestly thinks this is an accurate representation of fraternity life, they are insane. Just like "The Real World" is a ridiculous, edited and sensationalized bastardization of day-to-day life, "Fraternity Life" is an abominable monstrosity that consists of nothing but MTV trying to cash in on stereotypes. Shows like this set back the actual Greek System immeasurably, since as a result of this show 15 year olds everywhere will view Greek Life as nothing more than a rehash of "Animal House".
For reference, the organization portrayed on the show is an independent fraternity, meaning that the organization has no national headquarters, nor any other chapters at other schools. Due to the nature of the show and the explicit scenes filmed, no existing fraternity with a national charter would be allowed to participate in the show. MTV intentionally cuts and edits the show make the house look like nothing more than explicit sex, underage binge drinking and general mayhem; nothing more than just a continuation of incorrect and outdated stereotypes.
I can't believe I'm even wasting my time writing this. If you're stupid enough to believe that fraternity life is anything like this, then you probably have no chance of ever going to college at all.
