The series is set in the Florida Panhandle along the beach that runs all the way to Alabama, United States. The show is currently into it’s second season, which premiered on July 9, 2018, on MTV.

Living under the Spotlight Isn’t Easy for Him
Smyrnios is originally from the town of Perry, Florida, and admittedly had a tough time originally adjusting to his housemates. In a recent interview, he said that it was really hard to live with the same set of people in the same house, day in and day out.

It hasn’t been easy for Smyrnios to get to where he is today.
According to MTV, Smyrnios was asked to leave his house at the young age of 17 and has been fending for himself since then. Despite the problems he’s had trying to make a life for himself, Smyrnios has never forgotten the value of formal education.

He is of Greek ethnicity and is currently single. However, looking at the way girls and women are responding to him, his single status might not last for long!
