Best show ever. What every reality competition should be
Just watched the first episode and it was great. I watched it twice. Ingenious, instructive, interesting and exciting all in one show. Can't wait for the next episode.
Had such high hopes...
No one can be eliminated?! You mean we have to endure these personalities for the entire season? Like the guy who can't stop yelling at his teammates?! I'm done. This show is a total waste and I wish I had my money back. And I hope CBS sues them for the name.
