Man am I going to get a lot of flack for this one, but here goes.
Does anyone else think those challenges were a little fixed to make sure Randy's team lost?
Think about it: Who got voted off? The two weakest competitors, the two who really had no business being there, the two who would most likely have been seriously injured if they went in the ring with one of the other guys. Serious injuries = bad for the sport.
No other reality show competition changes the rules in the middle - why is the first elimination done in this manner, chosen by the coach, and every other elimination is in the ring? They clearly wanted to get rid of the two guys who would be completely decimated and make the show and the sport look bad.
All you need is one guy to put a little less effort in and the challenge is lost. Think about it - if Chuck's team lost, who are they going to get rid of? Everyone else has a decent shot. On Randy's team, the got rid of the two guys who definitely wouldn't have made it. Chris S. might have had the skills but he wasn't in shape. Thacker was just a disaster and had no confidence. Could you imagine him in the ring with, say, Bobby Southworth? The way things went, it worked out perfectly for the show. A little too perfectly? Am I the only one who noticed this?
Let the attacks begin.
