Turtle tormentors? Not we, says MTV
Number of endangered sea turtle eggs destroyed by MTV’s Trinidad and Tobago shoot for its new reality show The Gauntlet, according to the Sea Turtle Restoration Project: at least 400.
Number of eggs destroyed by the Gauntlet shoot, according to veteran MTV reality production house Bunim-Murray: 0.
I don’t know who’s right, though Bunim-Murray also back their claim that no turtles were harmed with a statement issued by the Caribbean country’s government. I suppose that this won’t be settled until MTV gives the amphibians their own show. Turtle Request Live anyone?
