Which TUF has had the toughest tournament?

Just time for a bit of discussion on the past 6 seasons on the The Ultimate Fighter. My question is which TUF winner had the hardest competition to face, not exactly the hardest route because they could've avoided some of the tougher dudes but which season has the toughest fighters.

TUF 1 LHW: Griffin, Bonnar, Swick, Hogar, Southworth
TUF 1 MW: Sanchez, Florian, KOS, Quarry, Leben

TUF 2 HW: Evans, Imes, Petruzzeli, Jardine, Christoson
TUF 2 WW: Stevenson, Cuommo, Davis, Guillard, Burkman

TUF 3 LHW: Bisping, Haynes, Hamill, Pointon, Inhofer (Noah)
TUF 3 MW: Grove, Herman, Starnes, Singer, Pointon

TUF 4 WW: Serra, Lytle, Carter, Thomas, Clementii
TUF 4 MW: Lutter, Cote, Sell, Smith, Rivera

TUF 5 LW: Diaz, Gamburyan, Maynard, Lauzon, Miller, Wiman

TUF 6 WW: Danzig, Speers, Sotiropolous, Arroyo, Koloski, War Machine

Now those are the top 5-6 guys from each season IMO. Looking at them, I think TUF 1 MW, TUF 2 WW AND TUF 5 LW had the guys that have or will made the biggest impact in the UFC.

Obviously Bisping or Evans had the easiest competition as only 1 dude from each of there divisions are still fighting in the UFC and both avoided facing (Jardine & Hamill) on the show.

I'm going to make a blog about which fighter actually had to face the hardest competition to get the win (without doing much research and just thinking right now I'm going to say Sanchez, Diaz or Grove).

Anyone have an opinion on this idea?

Definitley one or two. Probably 2. I mean you had Guillard (extremely explosive), Burkmann (became a top ten WW at one point and gave Karo a good fight), Marcus Davis (boxer for like 15 years with wins over Pete Spratt, Shonie Carter, and Forrest Petz), Luke Cummo (good striker, not easy to finish), Joe Stevenson (about to get an interim title shot), Gurgel (not good lately but had some exciting fights after the show). The heavyweights had Brad Imes (Mr. Gogo), Keith Jardine (beat Chuck), Rashad Evans (beat Bisping), and Seth Petruzelli.

Season 1, not because it had the highest skill level, but because they were closest to each other.

Season one had some good talent, but the show was in its early days of production and I think Florian and Hogar didn't even fight until the semi finals. So good talent, just a bad display.

Don't forget Mike Whitehead and Brad Imes! Do you know how hard it is for someone of Rashads size and weight to take on a natural heavyweight! That's anything but easy!
