P Diddy actually selects a Making the Band 3 group

The first season of Making the Band 3 ended in disaster as P Diddy decided that all of the contestants, except three, sucked. So P Diddy decided to start all over again with a new season of the show.

That new season concluded last night, and Aubrey and Aundrea, two holders from season one, made the band, as did Wanita, Shannon, Dawn.

What else happened? MTV’s super-helpful (read: piece of crap) web site for the show only has a photo flipbook of the finale, but no recap or any information about what’s next for the group. Maybe Jacob Underwood, Ashley Parker Angel, Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick, and Dan Miller could offer some insight.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
