I have to call shenanigans on the producers of this show. I know they like the drama. I know they cast 'personalities' for each season, and they try to create 'storylines' with arc for their 'characters'...but please. I want to tell them to stop with the hero and villian edits, the redemption arcs and the huge focus on conflict. And stop casting game players. Stop egging on people to be nasty to each other. Past contestants say they have a lot of fun in there, too. More of that, please.
The producers even set up drama between the trainers. I prefer scenes of Bob being goofy and singing to contestants about how much he loves dark morning workouts, than seeing made up 'conflict' with Dolvett about stealing workouts. I am sure the producers told Dolvett to mess with Bob and do things to get under his skin. Apparently that is better teevee.
I watch for the inspiring concept of people making lifestyle changes and saving lives.
It's like i have a relationship with this show, where I love it and hate it.
