What are your thoughts?
Dude, that would be so bad for ratings. pfft, like I care about ratings, but it's true. It's reality tv, and as disgusting as it is to watch these guys piss their opportunities away with alcohol and being douchebags, it does bring in a lot of fans. Also, we get to know what kind of character these guys have. I have a lot of respect for the guys who weren't
drinking like crazy and trashing the house. I respect the guys trying to discourage that type of behavior, breaking up fights and trying to save the other fighters from sabotaging their own careers.
It's hard to say what I would do in their situation, because obviously, I'm not in their shoes. Maybe they are truly put up to it. I don't doubt that for a second. If I had producers telling me to break stuff, who knows. I don't like to think I'd stoop to that level. I sure as hell wouldn't be getting wasted. JT is truly a gifted athlete to be able to eat and drink like he does and still be able to compete the next day. ... or even stay in competitive shape, for that matter.
Anyway, as much as I hate to see these guys get all drunk and retarded, I think the alcohol serves a bigger purpose.
