The next big reality competition series coming to Paramount+ is essentially Jersey Shore meets Love Island meets RuPaul’s Drag Race meets… so much alcohol.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Mitchell Slaggert (Gossip Girl) is joining HBO Max’s The Sex Lives of College Girls as a new series regular, our sister site Deadline reports. Slaggert will play Jackson, a former Division I athlete who transfers to Essex College after spending two years at a party school. Despite his traditional jock exterior, Jackson has a “depth that begins to show over time.” Perhaps Slaggert can fill the void left by Gavin Leatherwood, who shocked fans by revealing that he’s not returning for Season 2.

* Lil Rel Howery (Rel) and Dascha Polanco (Orange Is The New Black) are joining Peacock’s 10-episode mystery drama series Poker Face, created by Rian Johnson (Knives Out), Deadline reports. Described as a “fun, character driven, case-of-the-week” series, the cast already includes Natasha Lyonne, Adrien Brody, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Stephanie Hsu, Benjamin Bratt and David Castañeda.
