Why is it mormons are drawn to participate in such bad television?
@Hutter, and I was just wondering why anti-Mormons are drawn to articles about
Mormons on bad tv shows?
I thought it was a great show. The reason I watched this show was because I had
read an article here about two Mormons being on the show. I had no clue about
the show, so I did turn in because of the two Mormons, but enjoyed many of those
on the show. Pretty tough things they went through.
Like MoJules I watched the show after reading about it here on DNews. I
wasn't disppointed--it's nice to see a reality t.v. show where the
contestants help each other instead of cutting each other down (although some of
that happened as well).
Like "Wiscougarfan" I appreciated a "reality" show that was
positive in that the (competing) teams were instructed to actively help each
other. Grylls often forthrightly spoke up for individuals who were criticized
by competing teams and stated "prove yourselves by your actions not by your
words". This was something different; so much of "reality
television" seems to actively encourage division and back-stabbing and is
slow to eliminate contentious and morale-defeating contestants.We
did not know that there would any LDS people among the teams participating; we
watched the show because it looked like being something character-building. We
didn't miss an episode and were generally impressed.
I wonder how the Catholic team did? You know that gives me an idea.
I think KBYU should create a new reality series where teams of different
Religions fight it out in the Octagon and which ever religion survives to the
end is proclaimed God's favorite. That really is the only way to settle
our religious differences. Now we just need to figure out what to
name it.Let's Get Ready To Rumble!!!
