The new MTV show Faking It tells the story of two friends who are sick and tired of being unpopular at their high school and do something drastic to try to finally fit in. Click to watch the hilarious trailer!
Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk), are best friends obsessed with becoming popular in MTV’s Faking It. When someone falsely outs them as gay at a party, the girls instantly become famous at their high school and they decide to pretend they’re a couple even though they’re both straight.
Lesbians are the Queen Bees in ‘Faking It’ Trailer
If the trailer for the new show is any indication, Faking It is going to be hilarious! Some of the best lines featured in the trailer include, “We’re not gay. I don’t even like looking at my own vagina” and “straight guys love lesbians — just watch any porno.” There’s also a great scene where a fellow classmate tries to out the girls as straight in front of hundreds of their peers and the girls respond by making out passionately. “If we’re faking it, would I do this?” Karma says, sending the crowd of her peers into a frenzy.
But before you make any rash judgements about Faking It, you should know that it’s about more than two girls pretending to be gay — it’s about tolerance, according to show runner Carter Covington. “There are schools out there where being gay is no longer a problem, and tolerance is viewed as an asset,” the openly gay Covington told Buzzfeed. “It made me think ‘Faking It’ could work if we set it a high school like that and had one of the girls actually have a crush on her best friend,” he said.
Faking It premieres April 22 at 10:30 p.m. EDT on MTV. We can’t wait to see it!
