The GC: The reality behind the reality show

The second episode of the GC went to air tonight.
The producers have promised there will be an increase in Maori cultural content as the series plays out.
Either way it is without doubt the most talked about local TV show of the year.
But what is the reality behind the reality show?
Ali Ikram takes a look.

This show isn't really my thing, but I don't see anything wrong with it - young maori guys with ambition, trying to get ahead (unlike their local dole bludging counterparts), enjoying being young, and still trying to hold onto their roots. Back in the 70s when a whole lot of young maori men got jobs overseas in the oilfield to make money and provide a great lifestyle for their families, they were considered sell-outs. Now they have retired and brought their money home, everyone wants a piece of them. Same will go for these guys in 10-20 years - we label them as fakes now, but will be quick to change our tune when they bring their money back here to buy property for their families. P.S. The lingo is nothing new, aunty / neff / unc have been used that way by Mozzies for years.

not everyone likes target. not everyone likes missing pieces. not everyone likes police 10/7. not everyone likes GC.
and your point is?
this programme is no only making me want to move to the GC but also my partner, and friends and friends of friends.
the jobs, the $$, the residents - AMAZING!
Aunty/Neff: is a saying that has been used for over 10 years (as far as I know of anyway). I remember the exact person that first said it to me too and where about I was standing at school also LOL.
We also used 'Uncle' for the boyz.

Yes it is the most talked about but for all the wrong reasons.And why do we need a increase in the maori cultural if this was aimed at maori why is it not shown on maori tv.lets remember not everyone is intrested in that culture.
