This is the true story... of a bunch of coddled millennials... picked to live in a house from the 1990's...(compete in challenges) and have their lives taped... to find out what happens... when millennials stop Snapchatting... and start getting triggered... The 90's House!
That’s right, MTV’s newest reality show is taking away the smartphones from a bunch of twenty-somethings and introducing them to a world of VHS and dial-up.
MTV says, "The competition show places 12 millennial housemates in a 90s-inspired house that forces the young adults to officially unplug their modern-day devices and party like it's 1990,"
“With only the technology, catch phrases and fashion from that decade, each episode, opponents will face elimination by competing in various 90s-themed challenges. The raddest contestant will win $90,000, a Mazda Miata and two VIP tickets on a 90s cruise."

Based on their ages, the contestants were born between the years 1988 and 1996, which means I already find them annoying. Especially Mark, the 29 year old, who will probably pretend he doesn't know how a boombox works.
MTV's choice of hosts is probably a good indication of what the show will actually be like. The show is hosted by NSYNC's Lance Bass (whose "boy band" fame skyrocketed in 2000) and Christina Milian (who was unknown until 2001). That's not so 90's. Was Vanilla Ice not available? But I guess Millennium House doesn't sound as catchy as "90's House" for a show that's mostly about making fun of millennials.
Personally, I can't wait to watch a bunch of twenty-somethings get triggered while trying to use dial-up internet. The real drama will go down when someone gets kicked offline after one of the house guests picks up the landline.
90s House premieres Tuesday, September 26th on MTV! Check out the trailer below
