JusPlayin has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I was suprised that these guys even could survive a round. I don't know how real or fake the fights are. But the fact that these guys aren't even pro fighters and they can survive with bjj black belts and people with year of experience. Just seems weird.

I thought the show was a neat idea, but I was pretty sure it was going to be scripted, and it obviously is.

If it were real, the 'bullies' would have to be completely retarded. You know you wouldn't get anywhere near 10,000 dollars, you'd be lucky to get 1 or 2 thousand, maybe zero, and that for the privilege of getting publicly humiliated and beaten for 6 minutes. You'd have a pretty hard time finding people to sign up for that if it were real.

Nice idea, but obviously fake.

they did this...i forget what it was called (well actually i thought it was called joes versus pros MMA) and yeah they had mma fighters go in against army trainers and other joe-type people who thought they were awesome fighters. i forget who the mma guy was, but it was def one of the more famous guys. as i recall there was no striking; the mma guy just submitted them over and over again. each joe spent 3 minutes in the ring im pretty sure, and usually got submitted about 4 - 8 times in that 3 minutes

I have a confession to make.

Bully Beatdown is completely fake. Everyone on it is actors. Everyone involved with the show knows that it is fake and we script pretty much everything that comes out of their mouth. I have not yet got an executive producer credit, or a writer's credit- but I write the bully's dialouge myself. I will be E.P. on season two. That's right, our scripted fake show is suppossedly doing so well done that we will be getting a season two. Makes my stomach hurt that I'm selling this slop. I'm sorry.

The fights are the most complicated portion of the show. The real trick is, hiring stuntmen that are so skilled that they can make it look like we are putting them in 16 oz gloves, headgear and convincingly get beat up by mixed martial artists. We looked high and low, but we found them, and made the show really convincing. Unfortunately, the people on the internet are much too bright to be fooled by this trickery, and have exposed us. This doesn't really affect us too much, because no one cares what a few back alley websites say about our hit MTV show, but I couldn't bear to read the forum with all this shame that I'm carrying around. I'm actually considering turning down the contract to host the next season because of the ridicule that I'm recieving on this board and others.

Again. I'm sorry interwebz. I apologize, sincerely.



(for the slow, his post was sarcastic. The show is not scripted and the fights are real.




EDIT: I WAS WRONG. SHIT IS FAKED! F U MAYHEM!

Sorry but I dont buy it. I dont think that Mayhems apology was real and I dont think anything on that show is real.
It is however entertaining in some sick perverse way.

MTV's "Bully Beatdown" starring Jason "Mayhem" Miller has been a surprise smash hit, and a serious guilty pleasure among serious MMA fans over the last few weeks. As if the poorly-crafted canned lines (seemingly read right off a cue card) weren't obvious enough, MMA TKO is now reporting that MTV hired professional stuntmen to pose as the "bullies" on the show, and in most cases, the "bullies" had never met their "victims" prior to the show:

I spoke with a friend that helped with the production of the show and was told that most of the bully/victim combo had never even met prior to the taping of each episode

Take bully Jon from the last episode with Jake Shields. Last year he was on the Fox TV show Battle of the Bods where Jonathan proclaimed to be a professional stuntman as he judged the bodies of young women.

Even though Bully Beatdown is filled with actors the fights are mostly real. The stuntmen do try to fight back against the Pro MMA fighters but their payday comes not from the 10,000 prize money offered up but from the money guaranteed on the contract they signed going into the fight.
Update: I have been asked for proof that any of these guys are actors. Well here you go:
Ryan Adam Kessman : one of the fighters IMDb Resume. Lists his background Performance Skills: Martial Arts, Stunts. He was even on My name is Earl.


This is an interesting revelation, but it's certainly not the most surprising or earth-shattering bit of news, especially given the scripted nature of many of MTV's "reality" shows such as "The Hills" and various dating shows. Whether or not these guys really are bullies is pretty inconsequential, as they're still apparently actually fighting the MMA fighters. However, bringing in professional stuntmen certainly gives the "bullies" more of an advantage in the fights, and if MTV had used average joes, the beatdowns would probably be much more severe.
