    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    @Hutter, and I was just wondering why anti-Mormons are drawn to articles about Mormons on bad tv shows?

    Why is it mormons are drawn to participate in such bad television?
