Reality Show Members Trying Out..Is it difficult for the to make squad?

Do you guys think it is difficult for individuals who were on reality shows to make HBCU dance squads. Is it that these squads don't want any uncessary drama?

I'm assuming you're referring to Bring it since that would be the only reality show that has girls who would even attempt to try out for an HBCU dance line. My answer would be NO because I believe it will bring notoriety to the team since people would be eager to see them perform outside of the TV show. By watching the show, I would assume it would make selecting them, an easier decision. 

Well most of the Dancing Dolls become Golden Girls.

I don't think it's so much about trying out as in knowing what team brand you mesh with. For example, don't hook your dreams on the SU Dancing Dolls, if you don't fit what they're looking for. A lot of DD4L will have no problem with GGs and maybe Jsettes if they work on softening up and becoming cleaner IMO. Many teams base their lines off more than dance ability, so it really depends on the individual girl, but I honestly don't think i see any of them on a team other than a Mississippi one.

I agree 100% with what you stated. They definitely won't attempt the style that's different than a Mississippi line.

Theres a few of DD4L I could see dancing for pretty much any squad they choose and work for, Cameron and a few others have great technical Jazz, ballet, etc that if they work for I can see her trying out for the dolls. It's really about going after what you want and not limiting yourself to a certain stereotype. If I'm not mistaken DT and some of the past dolls came from schools that weren't necessarily doll style high school teams, I could have her mixed up though.

I think the squad from Miami could as well. I think the member who tried last year and didn't make Dolls had more to do with attitude not dance ability.
She's at ASU now and I wonder if she's thinking about Stingettes. To me, I saw her as a Stingette more than a Doll.

I agree. Would love to see her in a tail's position​.

Plus Mrs.Young-Byron already has a dancer there who's a Stingette. I think it's Nyasia (sp).

THIS. It's not about not giving into stereotypes. At the end of the day, these teams have a brand, image and style. You can't put a square peg into a round hole, especially if more than enough girls audition who do. Just because you were on a show or highly visible, doesn't mean you are necessarily better than your counterparts. That Miami dancer went in like she did and see what happened. I absolutely love those girls and have been a fan since day 1. However, we have whole threads (with multiple parts!) dissecting who has the brand down, who fits the style, who has the "look", etc. and who doesn't. It's life. A Brooklyn Nets dancer would have a harder time being a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader or a Boston Celtics dancer. Doesn't mean she isn't talented or beautiful. Different brands. Same goes for Stingette vs. Doll vs. Jsette vs. GG vs. 14k etc.

Yeah. I always saw her as am Stimgette before Doll. But we know if she tries out and make it. She would recieve a lot of backlash especially up here saying "but you wanted to be a doll first"
I definitely see YCDT as Stingette or 14k, even Golden Delight (have to give up bucking though).
