'Siesta Key': MTV heavily edits Alex Kompothecras out despite strong storyline, fans hate the show without him
Even though the network didn't release a statement stating the reason for doing so but it did confirm that they were severing ties with the reality TV star
Alex Kompothecras has been fired from 'Siesta Key' and canceled from future seasons of the MTV-backed docu-series. Even though the network didn't release a statement stating the reason for doing so but it did confirm that they were severing ties with the reality TV star. It came as a huge blow to his fans online, who are now demanding that he be brought back on the show since it was pre-recorded.
"Anyone else find it awkward with Alyssa’a one-sided conversation with herself?! Bring Alex back for this season. I want the drama! #SiestaKey," a viewer commented while another shared: "I am glad that @MTV fired Alex from Siesta Key but honestly they could've left his storyline in for the remainder of the season. This editing is awful and honestly, it’s not even the editor's fault as they had to do this on the fly. Also this show is a guilty pleasure #SiestaKey."
While a few users (such as the ones above) are making a balanced judgment about Alex not being a part of the show anymore, there are many who want him back no matter what. "I literally HATE Siesta Key without Alex!!! Seriously HATE IT!!! #MTV #SiestaKey #bringalexback," a fan expressed while another posted: "Who do we need to talk to just to show Alex? Just show us it was prerecorded. We want to see #siestakey."
Some of the neutral viewers are having trouble with the edits. They feel cutting off Alex's head and changing his voice is only diluting the series. They have suggested that the channel can either air all of Alex's scenes (since his and Alyssa Salerno's storyline continues to exist) or drop him completely. There should be no half measures. "Ok if you’re gonna fire Alex.. but give us all or nothing! These edits are the worst! @SiestaKey @mtv#SiestaKey," a user tweeted.
In other news, it was speculated that Alex was fired from the show over racist remarks and animal abuse. Once, he had shared a post with an inappropriate hashtag #onceyougoblackyourneverWELCOMEback, that had social media all riled up. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. He continually shared photos with dead animals and that had viewers outraged. Catch all the new episodes of 'Siesta Key' on MTV every Tuesday.
