August Alsina is joining the cast of VH1's 'The Surreal Life' reboot.

August opened up on his feelings about filming The Surreal Life show to The Grio, saying, “My expectation was no expectation, honestly, because I didn’t know of this show. My boy who told me about it was like, ‘Man I used to love that show, I think you should do it!’ And he was actually the determining factor for me … I went to go look at some of the old seasons and I flipped through a couple of episodes and I was like, ‘Okay, this could be cool!'”

The premise of the show is to place eight celebrities from different walks of life under one roof together. From there, they have to compete in group activities, showcase vulnerabilities, and open up in the most unfiltered ways.

There’s something so unpredictable about a show like The Surreal Life. It will definitely give August's fans a chance to see a new side of him outside of his music career and outside of any rumors that have swirled about him in the past.
