Diva behaviour often tends to come with the territory, another thing the mc lacks completely, even on the most outgoing options the mc cannot be a remotely confident brat. And humour is subjective anyways.
The best way I can see it is that the current “outgoing” personality type is just the shy, awkward and insecure, “mousy” as you put it mc essentially acting or faking/playing at being something they’re not, in this case outgoing and mostly failing quite miserably.
And the mc, as currently presented, seems to me to be far too awkward and insecure. Also compared to how the npc’s fawn over Orion, Rowan, Blake and Seven also maybe not physically attractive enough as the face for a hip band too. Again, super hot and sexy is not necessarily a requirement for industry success but Psy followed a far different trajectory than your average k-pop boyband member, for example. I never get the impression the mc is particularly sexy anywhere in the game at present. It’s easier to do a bit of anger management training than to change your whole personality (and appearance), which is what the mc would need to do.
What G says means essentially nothing, G just wanted mc in to keep Blake out and he is very much characterized as a manipulator, sorry but whatever G says is probably not what they really think as, unlike mc, G can act in fact they seem to be a natural at acting. So anything they say I take with an extremely big grain of salt.
Or G just has a weird, idiosyncratic definition of hot, the photographers on the shoot definitely do not agree with him in the game as presented though.
At the very least G seems to have an extreme case of ulterior motives when it comes to the mc, rendering anything they say or do extremely suspect.
Case in point, G and Victoria both use the mc to get to and manipulate the other with little regard given to and little opportunity for the mc to refuse due to being in very vulnerable position on their reality show. It’s really creepy, imho. At least Victoria is slightly nicer about it than G, but I don’t trust either of them and this can only end badly for the mc.

August sits cross-legged on the floor, toying with the fabric of the long plaid skirt they adorn, wearing nothing but a leather biker vest to serve as their shirt. Meanwhile, Rowan’s fishnet top leaves little to the imagination, his leather pants only helping to add to his eccentric outfit. Iris’s outfit is not far from what she usually wearsâ€”a black dressâ€”while Devyn swept the floor with everyone with a giant pathwork coat and jeans.
Rowan is definitely the sex appeal here, the mc, by contrast is the worst/ most boring dressed here.
Here’s Orion’s bit:
Paige looks between them two, leaning forward with a finger up. “You wouldn’t happen to model on the side, would you?”
“No,” Orion answers flatly. “And I have no intention to.”
She clicks her tongue, mumbling a small: “What a waste of a pretty face,” before she speaks regularly. “Come, come, my easels. I will make you look beautiful for your first official magazine.”
There’s more throughout, but whether shy or supposedly outgoing the sex appeal bits are never aimed at our lead singer mc as it stands, while Rowan, Orion, Blake and Seven all get at least some.
That’s not a particularly high standard as it is a party where people are being wasted idiots.
It’s definitely both they’re fawning over, versus neither in the case of our mc, and it is attractiveness only during the photo shoot.
