VH1 has started a new series called “Scared Famous” which airs on Monday evenings at 9pm eastern time.
It’s hosted by Redman himself, with a cast of ten well known reality celebrities! A handful are models while the other are from Mob Wives and Love & Hip Hop.
Cast: Safaree Samuals, Yung Joc, Erica Mena, Tiffany (New York) Pollard, Drita D’Avanzo, Eva Marcille, Don Benjamin, Alaska Thunderfuck, the only and only Sky from Black Inc Crew, and Miss Nikki Baby (eliminated)
This Monday will be airing episode 4 of the series. The next episode will be picking up during the elimination round between Erica Mena and Yung Joc.
Without giving too much away, I really hope that Erica Mena goes home. I’m not a fan of hers at all. She was messy during her air time on LHHNY and she’s just as messy now. Plus, she completely went bonkers during the previous episode and turned her back on Yung Joc, another LHH cast member as well as a partner in her alliance. Joc didn’t even vote to throw Erica in the elimination round, he voted for Sky! So I would like to see karma get her.
I personally think she went after him due to jealousy. She was mad at him and Safaree for messing around with Tiffany… hashtag petty ???
Enough about that though. Let me give you the overall idea of the show!
When I first watched it, I thought it was corny, because the cast is staying in the ‘haunted’ Louisiana house with constant paranormal activity. But when you watch it, you can see how staged all the activity is. But after the second episode, it finally clicked. It’s more like a haunted house attraction. The cast must know that it’s set up, but given the stories that the place is haunted, when things start to happen, it legit causes fear. Just like when I go to a haunted attraction every year for Halloween, I know it’s fake, but I still get scared.
It makes for GREAT TV! It’s legitimately hilarious to watch them scream and freak out! Joc got to me the most because his opening scenes were him saying he’s a big man and isn’t scared of anything but then he’s running through the house screaming! I swear it’s worth the watch. It’s so damn comical.
Don’t get the wrong idea about the show though. It’s a strategy & elimination game. The cast has to do these challenges together to build money for their charities, but also have to make sure they’re not being the weakest during the challenges, because at the end, everyone must vote on who they think was the weakest, and that person must choose who they want to battle against in the elimination round. So we all know this makes good drama, due to backstabbing and flakey individuals!
As I stated above, all the money they make goes towards their charities that they’re representing, which I think is amazing.
I do believe they got the idea from MTV because they began doing that last year with The Challenge series. So there’s a little tea for you.
