YES and not only the worst talent wise but it was a black hole of personalty, I honestly cannot name a single person from this season because none of them gave me a reason to care about them. For me personally this was the least enjoyable season ever.
I could not agree more. I mean, when they spend 10 minutes talking about how a guy sucks his thumb, that just shows you how much personality this season had. It was quite pathetic. I remember a quote from one of the few, few names I remember off this season, "What would this show be without Dave Faulkner?" I don't know..good? Honestly, the only names I remembered while the season was on was Demarcus, Frank Lester, and Dave Faulkner..and the only reason I remembered Dave Faulkner was because I was very much annoyed with how he was trying to be this "funny" crazy guy but in reality he was just stupid.
And before anyone tweaks out, I'm not saying they should act like Junie Browning or some shit and play towards the camera cause I can't stand that either. I'm talking about guys with personalities....that does not mean some dude playing into reality TV and making a fool out of himself. I always like to take TUF5 for example, a big array of interesting personalities that didn't have people playing towards the camera except for Gabe...and even that was kind of funny by the way everyone else was treating him. I'll never forget when Tony DeSouza told him he needs to stop getting tubes shoved up his ass. I mean the whole Diaz/Emerson confrontation happened because Nate Diaz is TRULY a dumb ass street fighter...he didn't do it to get a rise out of TV viewers.
Now, onto the talent. I really thought no season would beat out TUF6 which was without a doubt the worst talent BY FAR of any season. That show was tailor made for one guy to win it and everyone else was complete garbage. Hell even the winner has an unimpressive 1-2 record in the UFC.
However, this season I think has surpassed 6 as being the worst casting of talent. Atleast a couple guys from TUF6 went on a one fight win streak and were brought back to the UFC. I can't see anyone from this season to make some kind of run...even a miniscule run.
And I must say, not only is Frank Lester without a doubt the worst fighter to get to the semi-finals...he's one of the worst fighters in the history of TUF...which is sad considering he had 2 wins. Neither of them he actually "won." You can add his name with the likes of Wayne Weems, Andy Wang, Josh Rafferty, Solomon Hutchinson, Ross Pointon, etc.
