Emo Reality Show

Chapter Text

One by one, each band member stepped out the car, and into the house at different times.

Gabe Saporta, the lead singer of Cobra Starship, was the first one at the house. Then it was the famous bassist of Fall Out Boy, Pete Wentz. Third to come was the former guitarist of Panic! At The Disco, Ryan Ross.

The three of them sat in the living room waiting for the other two band members to come. They were being filmed for their Reality TV Show that was airing on MTV. Five anonymous band members agreed to live in a house together while being filmed and aired on television. Each band member won 100,000 dollars at the end of the season.

They were currently being filmed for the first episode, which were the introductions. Pete, Gabe, and Ryan had no idea who the other two people would be.

"Who do you think it's gonna be?" Pete gossiped. Gabe looked up. "I don't know.. Maybe someone from The Academy Is...? What if it's William?!?" Gabe gleamed with joy. Ryan thought about it. "It better not be anyone from panic.." He grumbled. Pete didn't say anything, instead just looking away. Gabe gave Ryan a quirky smile.

Suddenly, a car pulled up. "Holy shit, who is it?" Gabe asked. Pete stretched his head to the window. "It's a tall guy, he kinda looks like... Dallon?" Ryan's head fell into his hands.

Gabe looked out the window with Pete. Gabe smiled when he saw the tall figure. Glasses hid his face and he had dark hair. "You idiot, that's Alex fuckin' Suarez!" Gabe yelled and ran to the door quickly, recognizing the ex-bassist of his band.

Alex was walking toward the door when Gabe opened it excitedly. "Suareasy!" Gabe cheered. Alex took off his glasses and stood at the doorstep.

"Woah, Gabe?" Alex recognized him. "Come on in bro! We're just chillin' and waiting for one more person. So far it's just me, Ryan Ross, and Pete Wentz." Gabe explained.

Alex nodded as he walked inside the house and set his stuff down. "I wish they would've told us who was coming before we came," Alex said.

Alex greeted the other two guys before sitting on the couch, waiting for the last person.

"Who could the last person be?" Pete asked. "Like I said, I hope it's William. What if it's Travie?" Gabe kept coming up with possibilities. The door knocked. Everyone looked at each other.

"I'll get it." Alex said. He walked to the door and opened it. There stood a six-foot kid with a sun hat and a skateboard. "Hi. I'm Halvo."

The camera zoomed in on Alex. The sight of the ex-Cobra Starship bassist and current Cobra Starship bassist; drama. Or, that's what they expected.

Alex showed no emotion at all. Gabe's eyes widened. "Uh.." Gabe didn't know what to say. Ryan Ross was in the corner laughing his ass off as Pete sat on the couch confused.

Alex walked back to the couch and sat down, emotionless. "I can't believe you replaced me with that twink." He mumbled. "Hey, be nice!" Gabe yelled.

Eric Halvorsen walked into the house, with a smile. "Hi, guys." He waved. "Who are you," Pete stated instead of saying it in a question form. "I'm Halvo." Pete looked towards Gabe who was glaring at Halvo.

"Uh.." Gabe sighed.

The private introductions for the show were next. Gabe went first.

"Hi, I'm Gabe Saporta. I sing for Cobra Starship. I'm 35 and from Uruguay. I think this show is gonna be a lot of fun. I know and love everyone so its gonna be cool," Gabe cheekily smiled.

Pete was next.

"Hey, I'm Pete. I play bass for Fall Out Boy. I honestly don't know how this is gonna go down so uh.." Pete paused. "Yeah."

Ryan was after.

When everyone turned to Ryan, including the cameras, he seemed to shrink. He was avoiding the cameras prior, but now he seemed almost immobile.

"My name is Ryan." He quickly got up and left, running to the bathroom, where he assumed there weren't any cameras.

When it came time for Alex to introduce himself, he started talking at the group. "I'm Alex Suarez."

At this point, he turned directly to the camera. "I make remixes. Follow my SoundCloud,  LEFTIMUSIC. That's L-E-F-T-I-M-U-S-I-C. Follow me on Twitter and Insta-"

Halvo cut him off, moving in front of the camera.
"Hi, I'm Halvo. I skateboard and vape."

By the looks of it, this is gonna be a disaster.
