High School Reunion 3 debuts tonight; principal says it’s “a black eye for us.”
The WB’s third High School Reunion season debuts tonight, featuring 1994 graduates of a Catholic High School. Despite being officially titled High School Reunion: Fort Lauderdale, the 14 classmates will stay far away from their high school stomping grounds, coming together 10 years after graduation in Hawaii. They’ll arrive come pre-labeled fun things such as “The Loud Mouth,” “The Predator,” “The Fat Girl,” and “The Obsessed Ex.” The school’s current principal tells the Sun-Sentinel that the show “is going to be a black eye for us,” said school Principal Paul Ott in a phone interview. “But we’ll recover. Cardinal Gibbons has graduated about 11,000 outstanding individuals. … The people on this show are a small group, who are not typical of our students past or present.” He’s yet to see the show, though, and backs off of calling the participants sluts, idiots, and dicks: “These aren’t bad kids. I taught some of them.”
