Tonight, VH1’s new reality show, Hot GRITS premieres on VH1! When I heard VH1 was producing a show called ‘Hot GRITS,’ (that stands for Girls Raised In The South, FYI) I was, of course, intrigued. As a girl that was also raised in the South, I volunteered to recap it for you guys.
The show, which is filmed in Valdosta, Georgia, features seven self-identified “rednecks.” (Hopefully we will get some use out of our banjos!) Before tonight’s premiere, let’s check out all of the show’s many characters.
First up is Bear Dellinger. (Seriously, did your mother name you that or is that a nickname? Tweet me. I need to know!) Anyway, Bear is apparently a badass. (But with a name like Bear, you’d kind of have to be.) But wait—it gets better. She’s been secretly married to a man called Lion. (We honestly couldn’t even make something like this up.) The Cowardly Lion is too afraid to tell his daddy that he’s married to Bear.
