    So, who else caught this show? I found it mildly entertaining. It seems to have some potential.
    The idea is this:
    6 people get put into a 'training camp' for a day or so. By doing this, they can learn each others strengths and weaknesses. This isn't a major part of the show. They only show a few clips.
    When the show starts, they setup certain 'tasks' for a contestant to perform. Stunts, trivia, general knowledege, etc..
    Each person has to vote for the person they think cannot complete the task. This is the person that has to complete the task. If the person completes the task, they can kick out one of the players that originally voted for them (into the doghouse). If they fail, they are kicked out.
    The final two people have a combined task to complete. The winner then goes up against the remaining losers in a pseudo-trivia contest. A category is shown, and the winner has to pick which person cannot answer the question correctly for the category (fashion, music, food, education).
    If the person selected cannot answer the question correctly, one point is given to the winner. If the person selected does answer the question correctly, one point is given to the people in the dog pound.
    The first to 3 points is the final winner. If the winner from the challenges gets three points, he gets $25,000. If the dog pound group gets 3 points first, they all split $25,000.
    Oh yeah, and Brooke Burns is hot [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, that Goth dude that was on last night. He was way less irritating than I thought he would be. He did pretty well on the treadmill stunt. I still wanted to smack the makup and pantyhose off of him, but he was ok. [​IMG]

    I really wanted to see him get dunked. What would that make-up look like THEN??

    I'm getting a little tired of the game/survival shows whose participants talk smack for the sake of talking smack.

    Brooke Burns IS hot, but she needs to loosen up a bit.

    Dang it, I meant to record this, but didn't, since my TiVo still had NBA basketball scheduled the last time I tried it. Phooey. [​IMG]
    Next week...

    Heheh...Colin Powell. I don't know if she was really that stupid or just misunderstood the question somehow. Either way, DUH.

    I saw some of it last night. Seemed pretty weak to me. However, if they promise naked people every time they air, they make get good ratings.

    Can someone expand on this for those of us who didn't watch? I just started looking at this thread out of curiosity regarding how good/bad the show is...

    I assume this was an incorrect answer to a question along the lines of "Who is the President"?

    "Who is the only person to have served as both Vice President and President, without being elected to either position?"

    The correct answer, of course, is Gerald Ford.

    I cannot believe how easy those five questions were last night. Maybe it's being on TV that causes people to go stupid but again those questions were far to easy to miss.

    I would have thought she would have at least picked a former president, but Colin Powell??? If I was sitting in the dog pound, I wouldn't have been able to keep a straight face!

    Well, I'm not one to judge, but let's just say that the contestants didn't appear to me to be what they call "Rhodes Scholars" either.
