TEMPERATURES RISE WHEN MTV PREMIERES NEW REALITY DRAMA SERIES �MAUI FEVER� ON JANUARY 17 AT 10:30 PM ET/PT

New York, NY � January 4, 2006 � What is life like when everyday is a vacation? MTV answers the question with �Maui Fever� premiering Wednesday, January 17 at 10:30 PM ET/PT. �Maui Fever� exposes the daily lives, loves and betrayals of seven locals living in paradise. This close knit group of friends spends their days sunning and their nights partying with no rules and no one to answer to.

�Maui Fever� explores the lives of several young Kaanapali, Maui locals navigating their way through life on the small island, juggling the revolving door of tourists while trying to maintain stable relationships and establish what they want for their future. The constant threat of temptation causes waves for Cheyne, Chante, Anthony, Anna, Corbin, Sean and Jesse who are just trying to make a good time out of life.

��Maui Fever� uncovers the real-life drama of a group of friends living and loving in an island paradise,� said Tony DiSanto, Executive Producer of �Maui Fever.� �While the guys think they have the upper hand in relationships with the locals and tourists, it�s the girls who seem to really be pulling the strings. The lush location, compelling characters and classic beach movie vibe come together to make �Maui Fever� a totally unique and compelling viewing experience."

Meet the Cast:

Cheyne-

Cheyne is all things you�d expect a top pro surfer to be: a party-all-night, funny, outgoing, handsome guy. As the most popular guy in Kaanapali and the son of professional skateboarder Tony Magnuson, will his relationship with girlfriend Rachael survive his attraction to his ex, Anna?

Corbin-

With no goals and no girlfriend, Corbin is the kind of guy who can�t take anything or anyone too seriously. Pinned �the clown� of his social group, Corbin seems to be everyone�s pal in Kaanapali while perpetually cracking jokes.

Chaunte-

Notorious for being the center of attention, Chaunte is sure to stir up the drama wherever she goes. She likes to keep her on-and-off boyfriend Anthony in the palm of her hand while she keeps her eyes open for other love interests.

Anna-

She�s Chaunte�s partner in crime and roommate. They even work together as hostesses at a restaurant. And like Chaunte, Anna relishes the attention the attention of boys, especially one boy in particular � ex-boyfriend Cheyne. Since Cheyne started dating Rachael, he and Anna have remained close, much to Rachael�s dismay. Cheyne and Anna�s attraction is palpable and it gets the best of them.

Anthony-

Quiet and shy, Anthony is hanging on tight to his relationship with Chaunte. While Chaunte insists they remain �just friends�, Anthony is incapable of making a decision without her, and unable to see her flirty and manipulative ways. How long until Anthony catches on and cuts all ties?

Sean-

Sean is what one would call the Kaanapali �player�. Not your normal one-night-stand player, he often dips into the constant flow of tourists to find his love du jour. Will this spontaneous waiter ever settle down?

Jesse-

The new guy in town, Jesse has already moved in with best bud Corbin and become part of the �in� crowd. Still Jesse often feels like an outsider and finds himself breaking the number one rule in Kaanapali: don�t fall for tourists.

Bringing viewers a more in-depth Maui experience, mobile subscribers can receive weekly episode recaps, video clips and partake in a fact or fiction text-message trivia game. MTV.com will also feature an online boutique where fans can purchase exclusive ringtones and wallpapers from the show, as well as check out cast photos and bios.
