Any of the comments we hear could have been made at any time in any context and then cut together to make heroes and villains; the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. In the end we are left with an impression that we know these people - but we don't at all. The voices don't lie, but rest of it is a TV show made from bits and pieces caught during a numbingly repetitive and crushingly boring four days. People are then paid big bucks to rearrange the bits into the most dramatic and entertaining two hours possible.

    I'm glad you posted this. I know Clint Gamboa personally, and I can't believe that he would EVER be as mean as they have portrayed him. I'm pretty sure this is a producer's edit designed specifically for drama's sake.

    You know they need to create a "villain" on these reality shows.
