Vegas Nights No Match for Vegas Days In Second Season of truTV's Popular Series REHAB: PARTY AT THE HARD ROCK HOTEL
Series Returns Tuesday, Sept. 1, at 10 p.m. (ET)
Last year, truTV headed to Las Vegas to give viewers a behind-the-scenes peek at the hottest party in the world's sexiest city in REHAB: PARTY AT THE HARD ROCK HOTEL. Returning for its second season Tuesday, Sept. 1, at 10 p.m. (ET), the series kicks off with the largest crowd the party has ever seen. Nearly 6,000 partiers enjoy the Vegas sun, but not everything is fun and games. Conflict ensues as rowdy guests clash and staff members argue with management. In addition, this season will see a rise in competition from neighboring parties, increasing the pressure to keep sales going strong. And a new manager will try to make his mark with his hard-driving, tough-talking, unfiltered management style.
REHAB: PARTY AT THE HARD ROCK HOTEL takes viewers to the world-famous pool party Rehab, a phenomenon that attracts thousands of the beautiful, trendsetting and rich-and-famous to Las Vegas every Sunday in the spring and summer. People come from around the globe and pay big money for a chance to attend this spectacular event that mixes the hottest bodies with the richest guests.
The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, creators of the Rehab brand and originators of the Vegas �daylife� scene, provides full, exclusive access for truTV's camera to capture the event itself, as well as the behind-the-scenes dynamics among management and staff.
This season brings Matt, a new general manager hired to head up the Rehab party. Coming from Queens, N.Y., he is a no-nonsense manager who will not tolerate slacking employees or out of control guests. Veteran Sharon, who serves as manager of event security, maintains order when chaos breaks out and diligently protects the staff. Deebo is a security officer who has seen it all, from passed-out partiers, to fights to people skipping out on their bills. Sultry cocktail waitress Julia is a hit with her customers as she flirts her way to big tips, while Matt tries to keep her from hanging out with coworkers instead of dealing with the clientele. Chantel is a skilled bartender who keeps the alcohol flowing and the guests content. Jessica bartends with Chantel and is using the money she makes to put herself through college. And Mallory is Matt's �ace in the hole,� a superstar server who came with Matt from his former nightclub gig.
In addition to the staff and guests, celebrities flock to Rehab each Sunday as well, some to party poolside, while others are there to perform. Opening weekend kicked off with a performance by Snoop Dogg, while other musical guests are set to take the stage and entertain the guests throughout the season.
