MTV releases ‘Big Tips Texas’ trailer

Posted 1:01pm on Tuesday, Sep. 10, 2013

MTV has released the trailer for Big Tips Texas (formerly known as South of Heaven), which was shot at the Arlington location of Redneck Heaven (and elsewhere around DFW) but features women from all DFW locations.

Here’s the synopsis, which doesn’t skimp on details:

Big Tips Texas documents the lives of a group of fun-loving girlfriends serving up southern hospitality at a popular Texas watering hole while hoping to make their dreams a reality. ‘The eclectic group of women includes four veterans and six new girls. Sabrina, a gifted student working to save money to go back to college and eventually Harvard Law School; Amber, the girl who knows her way around the bar but comes at odds with the other staff; Typhani, the boss; and Claire, the bar’s top bartender, are amongst those who have earned their stripes. The newbies include Kristyn, an ambitious waitress who has dreams of climbing the establishment’s corporate ladder and starting her own clothing line; Morgan, a rodeo princess; Mimi, one of the new girls who ruffles a few feathers; Jillian, the Chicago transplant; Macy, the biggest little Texan of them all; and Mercedez, known as the sassy Southern server.

“United by the bonds of sisterhood, these women’s lives are loaded with tons of comedy, drama and heart. They fight, make up and love like sisters all while working their way towards adulthood one crazy shift at a time. Whether they're spending their free time on Lake Lewisville, planning their futures or getting dirty on the ranch, they’re living it up and letting loose every day. Throughout every episode of Big Tips Texas, viewers will watch the cast’s friendships evolve while they work and party their way through the drama and adventure of figuring out who they are and where they’re going. Big Tips Texas premieres Wednesday, October 9 at [9 p.m. Central] and includes 14 half-hour episodes. Giddy up!”

Yes, they said, “Giddy up!” And as you can see from the trailer, there’s the usual reality show tension to go with the sisterhood, as well as a good amount of flesh on display, and a smattering of strong language (and a reaction to it that made me laugh out loud). And the usual reality-show point of view about Texas, although there’s less cattle than usual. Here’s the 2-minute trailer.
