Ever wondered what it’s like to be one of the frisky fivesome in The Wanted? Here’s your chance to find out. The guys will be the stars of their own E! reality show, “The Wanted Life,” set to premiere on the network on June 2, and there’s an early glimpse out now.
The sneak peek displays all the ups and downs of being in the U.K. boy band. The group moved out to sunny L.A. for the series earlier this year, and the trailer captures them living out their pop superstar dreams. As their tune “All Time Low” plays in the background, Max George reveals, “When we started, we had these dreams of success and touring the world.”
And while there does appear to be some fun, courtesy of some parties and the pool at their sleek Hollywood home, there are also tears and relationship strife as well. Bandmate Jay McGuiness notes, “It’s not all fun and games.”
The show was first announced back in February . “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 shared at the time, also serving up a warning for all the ladies around town. “I’m not that picky when it comes to Hollywood girls. There’s something special about them.”
Last week, manager Scooter Braun teased that the series would certainly include “a lot of singing and a lot of drinking.” There’s no word on if Nathan Sykes’ vocal cord surgery will be included in the series. But he added, “We’re worried, but he’s in recovery right now and we’re being optimistic. Our prayers go out to him and right now we don’t know. We’re just waiting to see how he reacts to the surgery.”
The show’s teaser comes just as the guys dropped their brand-new single, “Walks Like Rihanna.” The plucky tune was produced by Dr. Luke and serves as the lead single off their 2013 album release. A video for the song is slated to drop on May 7.
