TUF 10 is personality-driven
The fights may not have set my world on fire so far, but I'm getting into TUF 10 for the same reason I got into TUF 1 -- for the personalities.
Kimbo has turned out to be some kind of thug philosopher. I'm slowly becoming a fan.
Marcus is a the gentle giant. I've enjoyed the exchanges so far between him and Kimbo.
Roy is being cast as a heel, even though he doesn't really deserve it. He's just taking a more practical, less emotional approach than most of the guys. Still,an interesting contrast.
Wes Sims is, well, Wes Sims, and I'm sure we'll hear plenty more out of him. Maybe he'll become the true bad guy of the show once he starts getting more face time.
I'm sure the other guys have interesting stories, as well.
Then, of course, there's the Rampage-Rashad feud, which is entertaining on its own. The fact that fight isn't happening -- for a while, anyway -- has taken some of the steam out of it, but Rampage's quips are gold.
So yeah, I'm liking the fact that there are so many strong characters this season. They're making the house segments and interviews much more entertaining than they have been in a long time. Producers don't have to rely on brats like Gabe Reudiger, dummies like Junie Browning or the spoiling of food with bodily fluids, like they have in recent seasons. And I'm liking that.
