The real life mean girls: New show follows five students as they attempt to establish first ever British sorority
Sorority girls are often portrayed as being mean.
And TLC's new reality show cements their intimidating reputation, as it tracks five American college students attempting to break Britain.
In a bid to setup the UK's first ever all-female society, Hannah, Arianna, Dominique, Devan and Amelia launch a recruitment campaign in the city of Leeds.

Wearing matching pink polo shirts and their hair perfectly groomed the quintet sit with clipboards to hand.
One by one interviewees walk through the door and are questioned on a range of topics from their ideal date to the state of the economy.
'First and foremost, I really want well-rounded girls. Someone who takes their studies seriously,' sorority president, Amelia, explains.
As well as intellectual prowess, the Brits must also demonstrate a sharp sense of style, however many candidates fail to meet expectations.
'Do you think it's normal in England for girls to dress like that' Former cheerleader Dominique asks after meeting a student from Leeds with her pierced midriff on display.
And other contestants cause a stir with their liberal approach.
Wearing tiny denim hot-pants, high heels and a layers of fake tan, journalism student Claudia is slammed for her 'slutty' appearance.
Journalism student Claudia says that it can take her three hours to get ready before an night out
U.S. sorority girl Devan says: 'Claudia was skirting the line of a slooter cahooter'
Her meticulous beauty regime also leaves the sorority girls astounded.
'A typical day is waking up, have a shower, wash my hair, put my extensions
in, put a layer of fake tan on and then hair dry my body, put another one
on and then hair dry my body.
'If I’m going on a night out it will probably take me three hours,' Claudia states as she sits posing with a lollypop.
And the U.S. ladies are quick to form impressions.
Party planner Devan says: 'I think when you’re first getting to know someone you don’t necessarily want to make judgments right off the bat.
'But you can’t help it and sometimes you’re like ‘oh that girl is looking a little slutty,’ but you never want to say that because that’s rude.'

Revealing her code word for 'slutty' Devan adds: 'So instead you just say she’s looking like a slooter cahooter.
'Claudia was skirting the line of a slooter cahooter.'
Meanwhile Amelia serves up some top fashion tips: 'Be put together. Something that compliments your figure but isn't too tight. I err on the conservative side.'
The series, which originally aired in the UK on E4, runs over eight weeks as the the American teens search for five British girls to fill the coveted spots.
The girls will experience all aspects of sorority, including door chants, secret handshakes and night
The initiated contestants will be awarded with 25,000 to continue the sorority called Sigma Gamma after the Americans ladies have returned home.
TLC says 'cultures will clash and girls will be judged and humiliated all for the sake of earning sisterhood.'
Sorority Girls on TLC Tuesday night at 9pm.
