West Virginia senator Joe Manchin III finally got his wish… though he surely didn’t want it to come true this way.
Production crews were not with a young star of the reality show Buckwild when he died over Easter weekend and hadn’t filmed him since earlier in the week, MTV officials said Wednesday.
Shain Gandee, 21, was found dead Monday in his SUV near Sissonville, along with two passengers.
A cast member of the MTV reality show Buckwild is facing a drug charge in West Virginia.
Twenty-four-year-old Salwa Amin was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. She’s being held at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond.
State police say a multi-agency task force arrested Amin and two others late Sunday at a home in Summersville after receiving a tip from an informant. Officers say they found oxycodone pills and heroin.
Brace yourselves for a return visit to West Virginia: MTV has just ordered a second season of Buckwild, EW has learned.
The gang was just hanging out at the local cafe: Tyler and Shain and Ashley and Salwa. Tyler and Shain ate with their mouths open. Salwa parked her breasts on the table. A curious opportunity was coming to Sissonville, West Virginia. There would be a Riding of the Bulls. “I’ve always dreamed of riding the bulls,” said Ashley. “You should just stick to ridin’ cowboys,” said Shain.
They say we only hurt the ones we love, which explains why Buckwild’s Shain has a nasty habit of completely destroying his prized possession: His truck. “I’m always wrecking my truck or tearing it up somehow,” says Shain in a clip from tonight’s episode. Immediately after he says that, he races his truck around several trees, over a river, through the woods, and up a steep incline. Watch the exclusive clip below; the episode airs tonight at 10 on MTV.
Nothing on Buckwild really makes any sense. That’s true of most reality shows, and may in fact be true of reality itself, but it’s remarkable just how randomly thrown-together the whole universe of Buckwild feels. Its third episode threw out three or four huge plotlines that seemed momentous, and then disappeared into vapor. Shae broke up with her boyfriend and hooked up with Joey. She seemed radically unaffected by both events. Meanwhile, Joey seemed to grow a goatee between commercial breaks, and then lose it, and then grow it back.
So remember how last week we all met Shae, who seemed like an extremely intelligent young lady? Remember how she disappeared from the show almost immediately, as if she realized that was happening on Buckwild would probably negatively impact her political career someday? Well, this week, during the full cast-of-characters credits sequence, she introduced herself officially with a catchphrase-as-persona: “I think of myself as one of the guys…
The first episode of Buckwild began with a disclaimer that reads – I’m paraphrasing – “Hello and Welcome to MTV’s newest youth-targeted reality show. You are about to watch a group of young adults who look like teenagers and act like fifth graders engage in absurdly destructive behavior guaranteed to cause personal injury, property damage, blood clots, explosions, implosions, broken bones, broken hearts, broken societies, glorious deaths, and miserable hangovers.” There followed an hour of television that we will have to spend the rest of our lives trying to understand.
Remember when you were a little kid and it was so hot out that you’d line up a bunch of sprinklers and run through them? Yeah, that’s not exactly how the stars of Buckwild cool off in Sissonville, W. Va. They beat the heat by filling a dump truck with a bunch of water, jumping off the roof of their house and hoping for the best. Actually, this may not even be the craziest thing that happens tomorrow night at 10 p.m.
