During this evaluation day players decide who's good/lacking in various elements of trivia and strength. The next day, game day, challenges are presented and the gameplayers vote for the person they think most likely to fail the challenge. If the person fails, they are banished to the Dog Pound. But if the successfully complete the stunt, they then vote off one of the people who voted for them. Players are whittled down until only two remain.

Burns me up
31 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the guy who thinks the criticism of B.B. as host is irrational. Maybe I'm being distracted by her looks, but I think she does a good enough job aside from the canned comments she is expected to deliver. Being a prior Baywatch actress is no reason to automatically qualify Burns as an idiot, which is the conclusion many seem to be jumping too.

Other than that, I think the premise behind Dog Eat Dog is refreshing. Yes, they did overdo the strip tease themed events, but overall I've found most of them interesting to watch, and better than most of the stuff on Fear Factor and the incredibly lame Survivor events (of late). I do think they should broaden the final Top Dog v Pound confrontation somewhat, seeing as how common knowledge is a weak point for many of the contestants on the show (although the TD does need the event biased towards them I suppose).

Good show, and if anything is changed when it returns, it should be minor.
