They need to extend Grant a bid! Not because he will be a good brother, but because he will make the show much more interesting.
I agree. It's funny watching guys go through all of this drama.

Just like how i thought Jordan and Candace pledged to be on TV, Grant may have done the same thing. I don't care how "cool" or "hot" he is, if he's not doing it for the right reasons, i don't think he should get a bid.
Amen!

(side note: he's not "cool" or "hot")

Here's the Fraternity Life episode recap/spoiler site:

Don't go there if you don't want to know who pledges until it happens on the show.

The Time issue

I grew up with my father always stating the same thing. To this day I live by it, and to say in a VERY polite manner my chapter has serious time issues. We tell girls to be a half hour early so that everyone will be there WHEN we are supposed to start. It is one of my pet peeves, so I totally understand where the guys are coming from on this.

I know that my national office has very strict rules about appearing on television representing the organization. I would not be surprised if a group with the reputation of Sigma Chi is the same way. My guess is, if they do still have the goal of becoming a Sigma Chi chapter...they just threw that out the window.

I do think the Sigma Chi's brought the hammer down on MTV. The original promo commercial had that cheezy guy saying "Ladies love a Sigma Chi man" - which has since been dubbed over to say "Ladies love a Sigma Chi Omega man" (in a completely different sounding voice, I might add). Also, in the credit beds to the show, MTV has expressly stated they have no affiliation with Sigma Chi, don't want anyone to think Sigma Chi Omega = Sigma Chi, etc. - basically kissing some ΣΧ bootie. Well deserved, too - I know my nationals would be hot if there was a commercial for a completely unrelated sorority (and one we had bounced from our expansion list) saying "Men love a [Insert Letters Here] woman."

I like Alex, I just think he is totally whipped. LET HER GO!!! if she can't understand that you need to do this for yourself.

I don't understand something about the guy system... in the npc if I had pledged a sorority but dropped before initation then I can pledge again in a year... what was with the whole Mike thing... he said that he dropped and only pledged... And the Alum Ron, I don't understand his great involvement if he is alum? Help me to understand!!!!

Grant was cute but came off fake.

And doesn't Matt look like the guy from American Pie (the Mean one, Stiffler I think?)

I thought I heard him ask "Did you go through ritual?" and Mike answered yes and admitted that he lied about only having been a pledge a week.

I totally agree that Alex needs to dump Lindsey. She sounds manipulative and self-absorbed.

I'm sorry but Alex needs to take a stand for himself and be a man! Haha. He is so whipped he doesn't even know it. I liked Matt and was disappointed that he didn't end up pledging. It was too bad, but at least you knew that he was there for the right reasons and it was apparent how much he really wanted to join the house. I mean he wanted the President to talk to his parents! BTW, there is a resemblance to Sean Williams Scott (Stiffler).

All I have to say is Earl cracks me up everytime he opens his mouth. He was funny in the first episode when describing Alex's relationship with his girlfriend.

The alum, Ron, scares me a little. Okay, maybe a lot. Don't know what his deal is, but there is also another alum who hangs around as well. (I forget his name)

Forgot to add that I liked the fact that the brothers didn't let MTV go and tape their ceremony/ritual on Bid Night... unlike DZO. Some things are sacred to a fraternity and should not be shared with those outside of the chapter.

So are you implying that, say, Delta Upsilon is any less of a fraternity just because it doesn't keep its rituals secret?

Please.

The ladies of DZO have a right to conduct their rituals however they want, private or otherwise. In fact, I thought it was kind of cool that they let MTV tape one of their rituals, since now those who aren't in fraternities or sororities can see that ritual doesn't involve goat's blood or hazing or anything.

I don't wanna start a riot or have links to other threads thrown at me...

maybe i just missed something on this episode.

SO mike supposedly gets initiated to another GLO, transfers to a school without a chapter and DAs from the prior group to join a local... what's the big deal???? I understand, yes he lied and whatnot and that can be grounds for depledging, however, it just seemed really blown outta proportion... esp with that alumni dude.
We have girls that DAed from other groups... we couldn't be happier to have them.

Did i miss a key point or something?
