POTTERVILLE – Potterville resident, Clint Wright, is originally in one of MTV's most popular reality series.
Wright, a fourth generation 29-year-old farmer, was introduced into Thursday in the first episode of MTV's "The World World: Atlanta".
The program provides free weekly every week on Facebook Watch, the social media giant's video platform, and its mobile app. Direct link to first program can be found here.
"I am a small town," Wright said in his introduction. "I see the same faces every week. It's pretty quiet, quite conservative. I'm a Republican, and honestly you don't push me (because you're going)."
"I'm trying to break off that bit. I'm here in Atlanta to get something new."
Confusion Cardi B
Later in the first 25-minute program of "The World World," Wright shared his lack of knowledge of rap music and the culture around him.
While drinking Champagne and sitting on a cast-coach, Wright acknowledged that he was not a man or woman rapper Cardi B.
Wright said he plays country music and women often ask him to provide some online voice.

The first program includes some politically loaded moments among the wounds and also the appearance of the brewing love between Wright and "Tovah," a 27 year old female member of Scottsdale, Arizona.
News report on "The World World: Atlanta" was launched Thursday to the State Journal:
"The World World: Atlanta comes full of laughter, tears, hard conversations and strong times because we see a mix of unique personalities tackling real topics such as liberal agency, conservative values, sexual orientation, and virginity as a diverse group. cohabitants can find out how to live under the same roof.
Wright is a fourth generation farmer at Wright's Farm in Potterville. He graduated from Charlotte High School in 2009.
Wright told the State Journal this month that he lives on a dirt road in Potterville and the MTV exposure did not prevent him from being gay himself.
"The people I know know look at the show, 'Yeah, that Clint,'" Wright said. "I think it would be harder if you were acting as someone you are not (out of the show). I myself was every day."
