Aussies launch their own GC-style series

The Aussies have just launched their own GC-style series in the form of The Shire, Channel Ten’s latest offering to the world of semi-scripted reality TV.

Set in the Cronulla area of southern Sydney, The Shire follows a bunch of young, attractive twenty-somethings who are far more tanned ‘n’ glammed than your average Australian.

Some members of the cast have already been disowned by the mayor of Sutherland Shire, who said: “Those two girls that are so tanned, they don’t even live in the area. I’ve never seen them before, no one has seen them before.”

A whopping 941,000 people tuned in to the first episode of the series this week, showing that a little controversy can mean a lot of hype.
