I just hope that people dont go gettin confused when they watch this. They might be rednecks all over but these folks is YANKEES not southerners...just want to make sure thats understood. Actually the show is more or less a cross of crazy stunts from the show Jackass and slutty behavior and crappy drama scenes from Jersey Shore.

west virginian's aren't "YANKEES". WV is below the mason dixon line. that means is a southern state. everything above that line is what you would consider "YANKEES" un-educated dumbass

Sorry honey. You may want to Google that so you can see how uneducated you must be. Only the panhandle is north of the mason Dixon line. That is from wv studies in junior high and I remember that.

Sorry guys. Must really be striking a nerve to find out yall aint southerners, huh? West Va was formed from Va because yall wanted to fight with the north during the Cvil War. Yall are NOT considered southrn state. Only the norhten part voted against the succesion leaving the union. But the true confederates were an out of the state and and new state was formed. In any give list of states below the beloved line, yall aint in it. Hell even Trace Atkins said that in that show he did about Dixie. Twist it however you want, yall are not a southern state. Yankees, each and every one, love yalls little hearts.

it wasn't that bad making fun of wv but the show is horrible and boring. i was actully hoping that they had real southern wv ppl like the wonderful whites. mtv is helping make young ppl dumb with their retarded shows. that's why it's just not as simple as turning a channel cause it's hurting our country. if it was real it would be a lot better but some of the cast members have admitted it was fake.

If you used The Mason Dixon line as a map of southern heritage you would be wrong. Baltimore Md. ,and Washington D.C. are below the line. Google , Mason Dixon line image map. The Mason Dixon line was surveyed approx. 100 yrs before the civil war, and had little to do with a drawing line of sentiments of the war.

Striking no nerve of mine cause I don't claim to be born here. Just here working. But you were wrong about the mason Dixon line thing.

As far as calling wv Yankees I get a big laugh out of that. There is one significant reason you should know wv is not a Yankee state. In wv when you die they bury you 6 feet in the ground. In true yankee states they bury you 10 feet under cause deep down Yankees really are good people.

How about this. Wv succeeded from the union which makes us a confederate state. And in all reality a bunch of " turncoat". You talk about people in Wv being uneducated well sweetheart I hate to break it to you Va isn't much better off. You'd be surprised how many people in your beloved state don't even know Wv is a state and we're your damn neighbor. Trust me I know this to be true because I lived there for several years. Oh and FYI your Va boys LOVED my southern accent. Their words not mine. Lmao

The mason dixon line was used to settle a border dispute between the boundaries of the British colonies of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. It had nothing to do with northern or southern land boundaries. It doesn't even stretch over to the eastern panhandle. If you were to draw a continuous line from the mason dixon to the Atlantic southern New Jersey would be considered southern. Washington DC and Baltimore would also be considered southern cities with they're not. West Virginia isn't much more southern than Ohio geographically. And I believe the USPS still list WV as "mid-antlantic". We fought for the union against the south. You might think your southern because of the heritage and culture that we share with other Appalachian states, but geographically you're not.

Excuse me, I meant to say it doesn't even stretch over to the northern panhandle not the eastern one, which I clearly below it.

Northern VA and the DC area are about as yankee as you get. I am talking about the way they act not their geographic location. Yankee and southern are attitudes not a location.

Is succeeding from a "STATE" the same as succeeding from a NATION???? I mean really...They are NOT the same thing...
