A "bumblebee" reality show -- a guilty pleasure
1 July 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

In my reviews I refer to certain movies and shows as "bumblebee" because on paper, according to pure theory, they should not work. But in reality they soar.

Ironically, there are so many "obstacles" that this show itself has to overcome, and the other reviews have touched on many of them.

The editing is awkward, the producers deliberately choose in advance which contestants to focus on, and which ones to avoid. If they guess wrong, you end up with successful contestants that we know nothing about, and failed contestants we just watched an entire "video package" on.

And the pacing is off too. The post-event "wrap up" with the obligatory ex-beauty queen hostess serves no useful purpose whatsoever, and the mind boggles at the otherwise useful things the producers could have done with the wasted time.

But real shocker for me was when I asked friends about the show and discovered many who considered it a "guilty pleasure" -- watched it, enjoyed it, but did not really want to talk about it.

TV is a tough business and I think the producers have achieved something special with this show, it is addictive and entertaining even with all its flaws.

Recommended.
