Slednecks Star Defends MTV's 'Crazy' New Series — Plus: An Explosive Clip

Slednecks MTV

Following the premiere of MTV’s Slednecks (Thursday, 10/9c), Sarah Palin will be the last thing you associate with Wasilla, Alaska. From now on, it’ll be all about whale blubber, explosions and guys named Big Mike.

The network’s latest docuseries follows 11 thrill-seeking Alaskan friends — think Laguna Beach meets Buckwild meets Frozen — as they work, party and just plain survive in one of the country’s most remote locations. And even with the group’s over-the-top shenanigans, which range from taking shots of caribou blood to competing in an amateur go-go dancing contest, star Amber promises TVLine there won’t be any regrets from the cast.

“You live your life, you have a great time and you don’t look back,” she says of the gang’s philosophy. “When you’re in the moment, you’re just in the moment. Sometimes, though, you do look back and think, ‘OK, wow, I did that.'”

Premiering in the shadow of legendary MTV reality shows like Jersey Shore, Amber says she’s also prepared for the public to scrutinize her half to death.

“We have fun and do crazy stuff, but honestly, who doesn’t like to have fun and do crazy stuff?” she asks. “We all love to do that kind of thing. We’re representing our own selves, constantly sharing our beautiful state with everyone else. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, but for the most part, it’s just going to be fun.”

TVLine also got our hands on an exclusive clip from the series, in which Sierra and Hali literally blow up a couch. This is just what they do:

    Dumbest show ever. Every guy on this show is an idiot. And they all need to grow up. The only one that is down to earth is jackie. Waste of mtvs money !!!!!!

    I can’t help but notice all of the blonde hair in the pics. No Native people at all even though they make up a huge amount of the population up there.

    This show is a huge disappointment!!! I’m sure there are a bunch of extreme snowmobiling athletes that are affiliated with the SLEDNECKS that have got to consider this a joke.
    Who really wants to see the stupid antics of a bunch of irresponsible young adults whose lifestyles cater to the “All about me” generation?
    Change the channel, this isn’t worth watching.

    I am not a big fan of reality shows. But this one makes me laugh. And no not in a bad way. They do some really funny s*** to each other. And no I dont believe that this show makes Alaskans look bad. Its a show about a group of close friends having fun and trying new things. And there is nothing wrong with that. I live in Wasilla Alaska and I like that they show the world all the fun and weird things that you can do up here… Especially during the winter. They dont let all of the snow slow em down. 😉

    I think every reality show gets a bunch of bad publicity, and there will always be people that say its a waist of time. Its to be expected! But like I said the show makes me laugh, and makes wanna go out and try some of the stuff that they have done. Like the paint fight, or the snow boarding half naked!! It looks fun.
    And anyone that says that the kids on the show need to grow up…
    well they will, they are still young and they are enjoying their youth! That’s what life should be about. Enjoying the moment, living everyday like it was your last and having fun.
