Almost Abusive
2 June 2013 | by callyeSee all my reviews

This is not so much entertainment as a classic example of why everyone involved in reality TV needs a really good agent and a really good lawyer. This is a show exploiting a phenomenally simple/uneducated guy, manipulating him into doing and saying what E! thinks will make money. It's pretty near adult-abuse.

A previous reviewer says: "Anyone who complains about this show clearly expects waay too much out of it. Coming in, I knew it was just something light-hearted that's not meant to raise anyone's IQ...and I was okay with that." To that I reply: it is highly unlikely that anyone at all viewed this show with high expectations. Most will have heard his promo TV interview wherein he was asked by way of warming up: "So what would Ryan Lochte do?" and he couldn't answer. I watched it with this in mind so no, my expectations weren't too high, and I held little hope of "raising my IQ". I do, however, have a basic standard for "light entertainment" - as you should - and this is not that. This is a train crash where you either cringe and change the channel (if you have any decency), you keep watching and revel in the gore (if you're into laughing at others' misfortune/inadequacy), or you simply relate to brain-dead low-IQ interactions and you enjoy it because it's on your level.

If you're into train crashes or lobotomies, this if for you. Othewise, take the quick route, watch Lochte's promo interview for this show on You Tube then use the time watching paint dry instead (you're unlikely to increase your IQ, but unlike watching this show, you're probably not going to lose any either).
