I'm too old to go to a frat party, but I am curious to hear about this show.

The kids think the mystery aspects kind of cool. But if you have nothing better to do than be negative about someone doing a benefit for his alma mater.....

If nothing else the guy is a marketing genius....for himself. Who keeps a benefit secret till the last minute? How is that good for a potential crowd to benefit the benefit?

Exactly. You don't play fame-games when you're trying to "raise money for a cause."

From one Alumni to another, thank you!
