As the ever-revolving door that is the Fratpad cast continues to spin, this week brings us the return of a very popular Fratmen and the unexpected departure of another. It was just a few weeks ago that we said a tearful goodbye to Fratmen Maddox and members were ecstatic to see that today marks his official return to the cast. What was initially intended to be a long break from the Fratpad turned into just a short break after-all and Maddox fans everywhere can now rejoice!
Of course, with the surprise addition of Maddox today, we also learned that one of our current cast members would be leaving immediately. Fratmen Kip has been a staple of the Fratpad on and off since his debut and has logged hundreds of hours in the Fratpad archives. We were especially caught off guard when we found out that in a fit of rage last night, Kippers knocked over some patio furniture and pushed the sunbed into the pool… it left us all scratching our heads wondering “why.” We were hoping that this morning cooler heads could prevail and we could work on a good resolution but unfortunately, the outcome was a mutual agreement that we would no longer have Fratmen Kip as a part of the Fratpad cast. These decisions are never easy and they are never fun, especially when it’s someone that we love having around the house. We will miss seeing the real-life best friends on cam with half of the Kip & Schmit duo missing from the equation. We wish Kippers nothing but the best and for the time being, Fratmen Schmit has no intentions of leaving the Fratpad cast.
With the sunbed rusting and turning the pool green as it sat there overnight, we had to regroup today and fish it out. Fratgirl Minnie was there with her camera as the cast and crew all pitched in to lift it out.
