Storyline

Six contestants spend a day with each other competing in various physical and mental challenges. 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. They then compete in a head to head competition to discover who's the Top Dog. But it's not over yet! The Top Dog then gets five question categories (ie: Sports, Politics, Entertainment) and must choose which player from the Dog Pound they want to answer each one. If the Top Dog chooses wisely and manages to get the pound members to answer three incorrectly, he/she wins the pot of $25,000. But if the Pound members answer three correctly, they split ...

I think people are missing the point of this fun show
29 August 2002 | by (Vermont, USA) – See all my reviews

I think most of the negative comments here are way off base. Yes, they did screw up allowing the "Roosevelt" answer.

But anyone who thinks the physical challenges are easy just hasn't been watching much. You try holding your breath underwater for over 90 seconds! Get your butt out there and climb the rope in a heavy downpour in under 2 minutes! I'm pretty athletic, but I know I'd have some problems with some of those challenges. Anyone who says they're all easy is either in excellent shape (say Delta Force level), just not paying attention or deluded.

It was amazing in the latest episode that the egotistical Darin easily completed the first incredibly-hard challenge, but lost in the head-to-head challenge. It isn't just physical.

Yes the host, Brooke Burns, has to read the same tired rules every week for anyone watching who might be new. Yes, they're off a cue card. It doesn't mean she's an idiot.

But the show is STILL a lot of fun, and Brooke is a fantastic host. Besides being so sexy, I think it's great that she can be a person, rather than just a personality. So she can clown with the contestants, put her arm around them, etc. She MAKES this show.

And the strip-golf/hangman/football are tastefully done and make it more than just a physical challenge. No, the show isn't for pre-teens because of the idea of stripping. But adults should be able to handle it, since they blur out flesh that you'd normally see on a beach. It's interesting that the first woman I saw do one of these went all the way, yet none of the guys have bared it all! And they passed on the low-brow opportunity to have a strip challenge when the former Playboy Bunnies were on. I thought that showed some restraint.

My wife and I both love this show and it's a shame to see it dumped this fall.
