The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Riders share crude stories, are drunk, and share information they might regret. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

People riding on the shuttle are generally not at their best. 


References are made to pushing people into pools (in anger), having "hate sex," beating people up with hair weaves.


No-holds-barred sexual references abound. Mentions of subjects such as chubby chasing, foot fetishes, transvestism, and so on.


Every swear word in the book is used ("f--k," "s--t," and so on) albeit bleeped.


Occasional shots of the Mercedes logo on the front of the shuttle.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Most of the passengers seem to be hungover, and references to doing shots, drunk driving, Breathalyzers, AA, and more are par for the course. Jokes are made about smoking crack.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Walk of Shame Shuttle is a reality show featuring hungover partygoers who've forgone the "walk of shame" and called for morning-after rides in a car outfitted with TV cameras. Passengers range from slovenly dudes to super glam nightclubbers and everyone in between. The one thing they have in common is a complete lack of inhibition when it comes to dishing the dirty details of their evening's misadventures. Viewers can expect to hear about all manner of sexual fetishes, drug use, drinking, and more.

What's the story?

Michigan college student Kellyann Wargo saw an opportunity to make a quick buck when she started chauffeuring her friends home instead of letting them stumble home the morning after a rager. She'd provide them with bottled water and lend an ear to their tales of drunkenness and depravity -- and now VH1 has turned her moneymaking scheme into an L.A.-based reality show, adding a couple of new drivers (who happen to be comedians) to the WALK OF SHAME SHUTTLE rotation.

Is it any good?

Anyone who's seen an episode of Taxicab Confessions is already familiar with the "hidden camera" genre of vehicle-based reality shows, and Walk of Shame Shuttle does little to distinguish itself. Drivers pump passengers for information about their debauched evenings -- and despite the show's name, there's very little "shame" to speak of. It's pretty obvious that the majority of passengers have been cast ahead of time and are telling embellished stories. There's an inauthentic feel to the back and forth with the drivers, and most of the content seems to have been written purely for shock value and laughs. One girl goes home with an Australian hunk who turns out to have a spitting fetish. A chubby guy in his 20s boasts of his dalliances with women in their 60s, explaining that they're good in bed and will send him home with casseroles. While sometimes offensive, the show occasionally is amusing in spite of itself, but never is it really believable or so outrageous you can't turn away.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Are hidden-camera shows exploitative in any way? Are people more likely to share private details of their lives when it isn't made obvious from the start that they're being filmed? Why, or why not?

  • Do the passengers of the Walk of Shame Shuttle seem like they're having a good time? Do their stories make partying seem like harmless fun or like something that might lead to regret?
