The Wanted to Star in New E! Reality Show
Because of One Direction’s popularity, The Wanted are poised to hit it big in the U.S. They’ve already had one hit single: “Glad You Came” went triple platinum on this side of the Atlantic. However, the follow-up “I Found You” just peaked at No. 89 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the band’s first international release (and third album overall) has been delayed until later this year. Perhaps to keep themselves in the limelight, the British-Irish boy band signed on to do a reality show with E!
Confirming the news on February 6 on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Max George revealed the show’s working title is The Wanted Life. George, who recently has been reportedly dating Lindsay Lohan, said: "We're moving into Hollywood into a big house. We're not actually too sure where yet... for a certain period of time doing a bit of filming, bit of fly on the wall. I feel so sorry for [the neighbors], apologies now if it is you! We're all really excited about it."
George went onto reveal that, amongst partying and dating the Hollywood elite, he and Jay McGuiness will be mattress surfing.
Filming has not officially begun, but manager Scooter Braun said a pilot has been put together. Braun tweeted: "i have seen the pilot episode... trust me...get ready to love these guys and die laughing. @TheWanted on E! coming VERY SOON!"
At the time of the announcement, a new single “All Time Low,” a hit from their debut album, was released in the U.S. George revealed an original track will come out before the summer.
