Why do you feel that it's stupid for them to gauge people in this way? That house is just a catalyst for seeing how their lives really are, nothing more.
I think it is stupid because it doesn't measure what they claim it measures. It measures their ability to deal with social isolation which has no bearing on MMA. I like the idea of the show, of seeing the training, the general format. The only thing that really bothers me are some of the rules of the house.
