“My Super Sweet 16,” was an annoying MTV series that “revels in the excess of coming-of-age birthday parties for the rich crowd.” Now MTV have come up with an even better idea. Some of the kids have not grown up or are worse than annoying now. To teach these kids life lessons, what do you do?: Get their parents to agree to send them for “a week of re-education at the hands of the Masai in Kenya, a Thai family living off elephant tourism money, and Andean llama herders.” And film it. And of course the producers have lofty ideals. Something about helping Africans. I know.
