I often wonder about why the general masses hate the behaviours of these young Geordie TV stars. I can only think of envy. It might be the fact that a group of people who they perceive to be idiotic, good-for-nothing, promiscuous, binge-drinking chavs have landed themselves a slice of fame and many deals with TV and other areas of the media.

The haters are out in force over this one. It's not like Jersey Shore, because Americans behaving that way is fine, why should we care? But Geordie Shore is too close to us. It's almost like people are scared that the world (most of which do not watch or care about MTV, I would guess) might decide that we are indeed cut from the same cloth as Holly and Jay and co. and that we, too, behave like them.

Well guess what? There's nothing wrong with how these people behave. It doesn't matter that they use fake-tan or obsess over their muscles or their eyebrows. Why doesn't it matter? They're just enhancing their chances of finding a mate (or think they are, which is the same) and that is something that 95% of people in this world do. You're only programmed to survive and reproduce, afterall.

The excessive drinking is highlighted in this programme. The only reason why the high-horse-riding haters snipe at it is because it's just another outlet for their envy. Most students/young people have the same drinking habits as the Geordie Shore crew, the only difference is that they are not getting filmed on camera. MTV get their ratings, the haters get their moral high-ground and the Geordies get a paycheck and a little more social status. It's an interesting little cycle but what's weird is the fact that the haters never think they're a part of it. They think they're innocently looking in from the outside, as though their finger slipped on the remote and now they're "being forced to sit through" Geordie Shore.
It reminds me of what Tony Montanna said in Scarface: "You need people like me, so you can point your fingers...and say 'that's the bad guy'"

And what's with all the negativity towards the dialogue? It's nothing more than colloquialisms that have caught on as a trend in one particular area. There's nothing cheap, tacky or chavy about it. You want to know what it is? It's contagious. People who talk to each other alot will pick up words and phrases from each other and you almost have no choice in the matter. So what about people who DON'T use such phrases as "tashing on" or "mint"; are you somehow better or "above" people who do? No, you aren't. What you are actually is someone who is not exposed to such phrases (you probably don't speak perfect Queen's English either, but if you did you would probably think that it puts you on par with aristocracy and Royalty) and therefore has not started saying them.

I'm not saying the Geordies are perfect. In fact I think the way they handle relationships is beyond fail. However, it's just annoying how our generation, at times, seems to be two polar extremes. We either have Geordie Shore, who don't care about anything apart from drinking and shafting, or we have individuals who masquerade as "prim and proper" whilst hoping their peers will notice and give them credit for it.

And another thing about the Geordies, you can tell they're the real deal. There's so many ups and downs, arguments, fall-outs, tension and make-ups in their little world that it's obviously all genuine.

I think Charlotte is everybody's favourite! She seems the nicest out of everyone and comes out with some hilarious one liners. I'm with everybody who said they can't stand Ricci, seems like a right *******.
