We all know The Wanted like to have fun, and the premiere of their new E! reality series The Wanted Life proved that. Fans got a glimpse into what life is really like for the guys Sunday night (June 2) on the series premiere. And most of the time “fun” was another way of saying “drinking.”
Filmed in Los Angeles, the five guys are told by their label that they will put up in what they liken to the Playboy mansion while recording their next album. Complete with a pool table, ping-pong table, swimming pool and jacuzzi, the British band are in the lap of L.A. luxury and very excited about it. “I still can’t believe this is my life,” Tom Parker said.
Tom Parker and Siva Kaneswaran’s girlfriends are also brought into the mix, but not always for the better. Life is not easy to be the girlfriend of a popular boy band and often even harder for the guy as he’s juggling life in the limelight and choosing to spend time with the band or his girlfriend. It’s obvious that the rest of Siva’s band members aren’t the best of friends with his girlfriend, and the cameras don’t shy away from this fact.
While we see the band partying it up and getting reprimanded by manager Scooter Braun, The Wanted confession cam reveals even more about the guys. As the episode comes to a close, things get real as Nathan Skyke’s begins to complain of vocal discomfort. Two lingering questions remain: what does this mean for Nathan, and will Siva’s girlfriend bring the downfall of the band?
Things aren’t that bad for Siva, though, as he just signed to Next Model Management. Not a completely new venture, the singer was scouted to become a member of The Wanted from his time modeling in his teens. Expect to see more of Siva modeling in future episodes.
