From the producers of Laguna Beach comes the ultimate summer series, Siesta Key This new docuseries follows a group of young adults confronting issues of love, heartbreak, betrayal, class, and looming adulthood as they spend the summer together in their beautiful hometown. Nothing is off limits while these friends come of age, figuring out who they are and who they want to become.
We recently caught up with some of the stars of Siesta Key to chat about the new series, the non-stop parties, and the fact that they do get a good night's rest, as there is no night life, only day parties that get wet and wild.
First up, we met with Chloe. She knows everything about everyone, especially when it comes to Alex, the main star of the show. She's most likely to be your best friend, and your worst enemy. One thing is for sure, you don't want to get on her bad side. Why is that? We find out in our exclusive conversation. Let's just say, this is one girl you don't want to lie to.
Joining in on the fun is Brandon. He's one of Alex's tightest boys, and most laid back of the bunch. Like Alex, he's a total heartthrob, and together they will drive the girls on Siesta crazy.
During our exclusive interview, we got some insight into Alex, who wasn't there to defend himself. He is known as the King of Siesta Key. This is a title he gained long before MTV caught up with this lively crew. He's known for his over the top parties and playboy lifestyle. But now that Alex has graduated college, he has to focus less on the pleasures of careless youth and more on his uncertain future.
Our discussion ranges from the contradictory title, as this crew doesn't take too many siestas on set, to life with Alex, and why Chloe is a better friend than enemy. And so much more.
Rounding out this tight knit crew are Kelsey, the new girl in Siesta Key. After her mom's heath took a turn, this former international model has given up the catwalk to move home to care for her mother. Because of her former globe-trotting career, she missed all of the fun of high school, and this summer she plans to make up for lost time. Garrett is Kelsey's boyfriend, a muscular personal trainer with a modest upbringing. When Kelsey starts to hang with Alex and his crew, their solid relationship starts to show its cracks. While Kelsey and Garrett look like the picture-perfect couple, people and hearts can change after a summer together on this new MTV show.
Juliette is back home from college and making waves on MTV. She is wasting no time heating things up. Last summer she had a fling with Alex that didn't end so well. Will they reignite their flame? Or will the summer breeze blow it out for good? And finally we have Madisson. Madisson and Alex were high school sweethearts who haven't totally moved on from each other. Having just graduated with an engineering degree, Madisson is looking to move on and start fresh. Will she let Alex go, or will she succumb to old habits?
All of those questions and more will be answered on the first rousing season of Siesta Key, which is shot in a cinematic style not often utilized on a reality series. This puts viewers right into the mix of things, as all confessionals are ditched for a more bird's eye view of what actually went down. Siesta Key premieres this Monday, July 31, only on MTV. Here's our exclusive chat.
