Breaking Amish: Season 2

When a young group of Amish and Mennonites risk it all to experience life outside of their simple farm community, they discover a world more shocking and difficult than they had ever expected. Season 2 of Breaking Amish follows the group to Florida as they reunite in hopes of making a fresh start. There, Abe is able to pursue his dream of bull riding, and a Miami modeling gig comes calling for Kate. But wave after wave of culture shock, unforeseen challenges, and unexpected discoveries make their new life anything but easy. And with their old life haunting them wherever they go, they wonder if they ll ever be able to create the lives they've always dreamed of. 
This 2-disc, 10-episode set chronicles it all including the explosive, post-season, two-part reunion special.

My review:
I have mixed feelings about this show.  I do find it entertaining and enjoy seeing these young people make their way in life.  At the same time I have Amish friends and even though they live a different lifestyle than I do they still do everyday things.  They don't own TVs, but they still watch them at friends houses.  They don't have a car, but have no issue being in one.  They may not know current fashion or celebrity gossip, but honestly neither do I.
To be honest if you dropped me into the lifestyle these young people were suddenly put in I too think I would be in for a Culture shock.
I think it gives a misconception of the Amish lifestyle.  The few Amish I have been blessed to know are super nice, smart and hard working.  
So I find myself wondering is Breaking Amish real?
