Silicon Valley's reality show: A new trailer of beauty

The new Bravo TV reality show, featuring the young, aspiring, and perspiring, debuts a new trailer -- in which everyone is clever and beautiful.

What it must be to be ugly and in tech.

What it must be to be, oh, in one's late 20s or even early 30s and be ugly and in tech.

How does anyone cope? The Valley shrinks must never go home to their VC lovers.

This obvious truth is underlined by a new trailer for Bravo TV's forthcoming reality show about Silicon Valley -- which enjoys Randi Zuckerberg as one of its producers.

You might have heard about this show. Imaginatively titled "Start-Ups: Silicon Valley," it has already shaken the brittle emotional foundations of those who believe everything in tech is serious.

But now here is a new trailer that will sure assuage all fears.

For here are impossibly gorgeous boys and girls who are desperate to prove that they aren't merely beautiful, but our future.

"I live, breathe, eat, s***, daydream my company," says one stunning(ly smackable) boy, who may well be called Dwight.

Another pulchritudinous -- and, who knows, educated -- young lady declares: "There's the bloggers, the engineers, and then there's the investors. None of it would work if there wasn't each part."

Surely this gives you pause for thought.

"The future of the world is on our hands," says one excitable girl. One wonders whether her, um, social widget that tells you whether your nails are truly dry (I'm making this up) is the future of the world.

"People have been intimidated because this package generally doesn't come with a brain," says Sarah -- who, I fear, some might decide is utterly brainless by the end of this series.

This must-see, must-wince, must-see-again show launches November 5.

Who can imagine that this will be anything other than the finest water-cooler fodder since "Jersey Shore?"

One can only hope that the tech world is fully prepared to look itself in the moving mirror that is television.
