'Sorority Girls' Series Premiere: The Girls Bring Greek Culture To The U.K. (VIDEO)

Sororities don't exist in the U.K. Until now, that is ... "Sorority Girls" (Tues., 9 p.m. EST on TLC) is a new reality series that follows the fortunes of five eager American sorority sisters as they try to introduce their world to their British sisters.

One thing that will be novel for the British girls is the sorority sisters' own made-up language. They often speak in code to avoid offending people. So, as Devan explained, if a girl looked "slutty" in her interview they'd say, "she's looking like a sluter cahooter."

It was a battle of the short-shorts when the girls met journalism student Claudia and asked her to describe her typical day. It mainly consisted of grooming. The sisters looked on politely as she explained the layers of fake tan she applied each morning -- "hair-drying" her skin in between applications -- to achieve that oh-so-natural for England bronzed look.

If Claudia could go on a date with anyone at all, asked Hannah, who would it be with? "Probably Simon Cowell," she answered. And what attracted her to the multi-millionaire "Idol" supremo? "He's really good-looking, and I like the older man," she gushed.

The girls got their biggest surprise, though, when Claudia got up to leave. Her teeny-tiny denim shorts barely covered her bum, and they left the sorority girls cracking up with laughter. Maybe Claudia would do better if she tried out for "Geordie Shore" instead.

Follow the "Sorority Girls" on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
