The show paved the way for reality television and it mentions an iconic New York school.

Wow..it's a major throwback, but I was one of the many people who was completely obsessed with the MTV Show 'Laguna Beach'. It followed around a group of very wealthy and insanely attractive young adults from Laguna Beach, California and we all watched how they navigated their was throughout high school. It was big because before the show aired there wasn't a ton of reality television shows and all of the people on the show became instant celebrities. I was recently rewatching the show (trying to get my beach, summer and California fix in) and couldn't help but notice that a huge Hudson Valley landmark was mentioned in one episode.

When was the Hudson Valley mentioned on Laguna Beach?

It all happened on Season 1 and it's one of the saddest episodes to ever hit reality television. All of the teens were saying their goodbyes because they were all heading off to college (I'm not ashamed to say i sobbed during this episode), it was just awful. One of the main guys on the show named Trey mentioned where he was going to school in the fall and to my surprise he said Bard College...yup the one right here in the Hudson Valley. How ironic.

Trey was a very big activist on the show and sometimes seemed like the only one who had a real clue of what was going on in the world. He organized many charity events and was pretty level headed for a teenager. It's pretty cool that the Hudson Valley was mentioned on a HUGE show that featured beautiful beaches and people with more wealth then you can imagine. I wonder what he is doing now?
