Favorite Episodes of the MTV Show "True Life"

I don't know why but I'm weirdly obsessed with the Competitive Eating episode.

Actually I guess I do know why, I'm obsessed with food but it's still weird that I can watch this episode over and over.

I liked the porn addicts episode where a fat guy's wife kicked him out for masturbating and a guy spent days watching porn with little human contact. The fat guy tried not to jerk off for a week or so, when he finally had enough. He goes to his room and then comes out saying, "There I've done it. I masturbated." He seemed both relieved yet ashamed.

My favorite episode of "True Life" is 'I'm Dating Someone Older'. The older woman that's dating a younger man is a total bitch, he's working two jobs and she's like he needs a better job.

I also like the I'm on Steroids episode but I can't stand that drama queen Brian.

i like the one about furries - esp the bit where a guy travels far to meet his online date who is a costumed greeter at walmart :-)

There was this one episode - I think it was called I Work in the Sex Industry - where this young guy was doing gay for pay porn and was planning to break it to his family. So he goes home, and one day he's just sitting at the breakfast table with his dad, and he blurts out nonchalantly "I fuck guys for a living. You cool with that?"

Breakfast was halted and awkward silence ensued.

Then he showed his sister the websites he's on and his scenes. The sister was just like "OK... what do you want me to say?"

The Calf Implant guy ended up doing gay porn. So did Peter in the Steroid episode.

My favorite is the guido couple from Staten Island who were getting married.

R7 - Wasn't that Aaron James in that episode?

I also remember the episode that inspired Jersey Shore with that fat, kangol-wearing guy cutting the line for Cheeseballs. I think he was nicknamed "Tommy Cheeseballs."

"True-Life: I'm a porn star" that had nearly unedited porn footage in the original airing. There was a porn star named Missy who was getting double-penetrated by two black guys (Lexington Steele being one of them IIRC). Her husband happened to be a director or producer of the film. While she was getting fucked and moaning and groaning in the background, the camera switched over to him calmly asking "Honey, would you like a glass of water?" It was really creepy and uncomfrtable. I found out that Missy eventually divorced that guy, remarried and found Jesus.

The episode also featured a woman who starred in "World's Biggest Anal Gangbang" and during her interview she broke down in tears and admits that she caught HIV and how she fucked 32 guys in the movie and not all of them were tested.

When the episode re-aired, the sex scenes were edited out. That episode originally aired in the early-2000's.

R9 Peter did gay porn? Really? He seemed kind of asexual to me in that steroid episode. I also later found out that he's a poet, which I think is more embarrassing than doing porn.

by Anonymousreply 1311/28/2012

R9. Are you sure it wasn't Brian, not Peter? Brian was such an attention whore, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he got into porn.

Oh, the "I live with Tourette's Syndrome" was tough to watch. There was the wannabe comedian guy who wanted to live on his own but couldn't (he needed constant care from his parents) and the girl who underwent brain surgery that didn't work. Sad.

I was just gonna comment on that one. It was titled "I'm Getting Plastic Surgery." It was the first TRUE LIFE show I watched, in 2002. If I recall, it featured a fat chick getting her stomach stapled, and two hot chick BFFs who got lipo together. But the one that made the most impression on me was "Luke." He was such a hot jock! But I didn't understand his obsession with calf implants. Who cares?

Anyway, I was lusting after him, especially when they did the updates at the end and he said he wanted to be in Playgirl magazine. From then on, every month I checked the Playgirl mags at my local Barnes & Noble, just in case he made an appearance. But no such luck. Imagine my surprise and joy when he started doing gay porn two years later under the name Tony Cage.

Here he is exposing his hole:

Ugh, that calf implant episode is still seared into my memory all these years later...I will never forget the fucking blood dripping down the incisions behind his knees! No matter how hard I try, I can't un-remember it :*(

by Anonymousreply 1711/28/2012

Tony Cage has a very small and unremarkable penis. Sad.

Was there one where a couple in Staten Island was getting married and the groom threatened, I think, the limo driver on the day of the wedding. He said he was going to "gut him like a fish" or something.

by Anonymousreply 1911/28/2012

R19. Yeah, I remember that guy. He was really classy :)

by Anonymousreply 2011/28/2012

Loved the "gut you like a fish" guido.

Also, enjoyed the "I'm moving to NY." There was a spoiled bitch, and a dumb male model. My favorites were the gay kid and lesbian friends who set out to NYC with little money. They were the only likeable ones.

I also remember liking a redheaded stripper. I forget the episode name but her parents had died and left her in charge of raising her siblings and her siblings kids AND siblings BF. I found her likeable as well.

by Anonymousreply 2111/28/2012

The red headed stripper was Unique-her name. I added her on FB she was the most likeable person ever on that show.

True Life: I Need Anger Management. That black chick seemed to have real problems and didn't seem to be playing it up for the cameras. She was funny as hell to watch too

by Anonymousreply 2311/28/2012

R21 that "I'm moving to NY" episode was really good. The two gay kids were adorable and inspiring, the idiot model was hilarious and even the spoiled rich girl got a little better by the end.

by Anonymousreply 2411/28/2012

There was one called "I'm Living a Double Life". A closeted but very obviously gay guy thought he was going to completely shock his best friend when he told her he was gay. She wasn't surprised at all.

by Anonymousreply 2511/28/2012

The "I'm Living a Double Life" was cringe-worthy, if only for the closeted femme who thought he was fooling anybody with his straight act. His family/friends all knew. When he finally confessed about being gay, they were like, "yeah... so?" haha

by Anonymousreply 2611/28/2012

My favorites were I'm Moving to NY-Loved the gay guy I'm on Steroids I'm Getting Married 1 which featured a gay couple having a commitment ceremony.

by Anonymousreply 2711/28/2012

R16 - Yuck, did you see all the acne on his ass?! Must be all the steroid use.

Charlie and Sabrina from the "I'm Getting Married" episode were hilarious - Sabrina's bad tit job, orange tan, and duck lips; Charlie's roid rage, the tacky ass wedding, etc. their segment was full of win.

True Life: I Vacation in the Hamptons. This was the best. There was a black girl blogger who wanted to be a part of the Hampton life but kept saying that everyone was racist and didn't let her into their exclusive Hampton lifestyle.

by Anonymousreply 2911/29/2012

I remember a bodybuilding episode where this hot dude made his dad shave his ass for him. That was HAWT.

by Anonymousreply 3011/29/2012

R30 That was Anthony on I Want the Perfect Body-hilarious. I prefered the hot nerdy scientist Rebecca who was training to be a fitness competitor.

Anthony's Mom: "Don't fall asleep, he says you have to shave his ass"
