Frat Life will show frat’s expulsion; gay rushee “disappointed” with portrayal.
On Fraternity Life: Santa Cruz, “viewers will see the fraternity get kicked off campus” as a result of two of their members’ actions, KSBW reports. That seems to contradict earlier reports that the incident and its aftermath would not be a part of the show. Also, gay rushee Keldon Klegg “said he’s disappointed about how he appears in the show,” the station reports. Keldon says the show “kind of made me a (two-dimensional) queer character,” but says “[f]raternity’s [sic] are not inherently evil. They’re not inherently homophobic. It’ takes people to be that.” The report reveals Keldon’s fate with the fraternity, as does MTV’s list of pledges.
+ also: alum: “MTV did a good job of showing the excitement of what our fraternity is all about.”
