Can TLC's 'Sorority Girls' Spread the Greek Life to Great Britain? (Exclusive Video)
TLC’s new reality series, Sorority Girls, attempts to spread the American collegiate tradition of Greek life to the UK by establishing its first-ever sorority – Sigma Gamma.
Cameras document the social experiment 24/7 as American sisters search to find a British pledge class that represents the values and character traits they’re looking for in its sorority’s five open spots.
“First and foremost, I really want well-rounded girls,” the sorority’s president, Amelia, says. “Someone who takes their studies seriously…”
Come on, we all know what you’re really looking for. Amelia later adds, “Overall, someone who’s really fun and wants to have a good time.” Bingo!
Watch The Hollywood Reporter’s sneak peek at the series premiere below as the candidates literally dance around the interview process.
Sorority Girls premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. on TLC.
