There's going to be a new reality show in Jersey. But this time, it's not going to be the epic MTV hit Jersey Shore. It's a new twist on the ever-evolving take on reality TV—a show about Ivy League students.
There was a casting session for this new show at Princeton, the Daily Princetonian reports. The student newspaper estimated that Saturday's casting call got about 60 interested students. The show plans on shooting this fall, the report says, but there's no mention in the Daily Princetonian article about the channel that will feature the show.
"Princeton represents so many types of students, and so we want to capture that," one of the show's directors tells the Daily Princetonian.
Several students who auditioned for the show told the Daily Princetonian they were excited about the show coming to campus. Others sounded more skeptical of the accuracy of the show. One student told the paper, "I can't imagine having a camera crew follow me to squash practice or out to the Street," she said. "I don't see how it's truly going to portray the [students'] experience."
The campus liaison to the show says the directors want to get Princeton's permission to film soon. Paper Trail is intrigued ... Would you loyal Paper Trailers watch a reality show about Ivy League college kids?
