    I watched this show and was astounded how dead-on Mark Cuban was acting, it's exactly what Andy Dick was emulating in his hysterical spoof of reality shows.
    I thought the same thing! If you're reading these posts Mark Cuban, no offense, but the show does border on self-parody. Next time, just yell out, "Where are my bitches?"
    It's too bad because the concept is cool: traits people need for success. But it doesn't seem like anyone thought beyond that. The "games" seem like they were made up in about two minutes, and the reasons for the eliminations are just capricious. Dude!

    I agree 100% with this. I just don't understand the point of the show either. It seems like little thought went into making up the challenges. I also agree with the statement that it is like The Assistant on MTV.

    So, if you all don't like the show or Mark Cuban (God forbid his face should "bother you" :rolleyes), here's an idea...why don't y'all just stop watching it?

    I think it may be that whole "train wreck" idea. You don't want to look, and yet, inexplicably, you do. Then you go around telling everyone how awful it was to watch.

    I've been through that with a few reality shows... for example, did you see BigBrother this year?

    No don't . It's a fun show.

    I can't see how Marks face could bother you , especially after a Trump sighting. Now that's too frightening for small children. ( Lobey don't let the kids watch !)
    Speaking of Trump , I can't recall a huge gaudy casino with name CUBAN emblazoned on it , or overpriced office towers , or any of the things that TRUMP has seared his name on in blood ...er tacky signage over the years. Now that's egotistical. I can't recall a sighting of Mark with a parade of blow up barbies either. ( with or without the optional goose egg diamond probably marked TRUMP ). Jessica Simpson may not stop by this show, but I have a feeling that the massive brain cell deterioration caused by close proximity to said Mrs. Lachey may be why an invite wasn't extended. In fact you are encouraged to use the old gray matter.

    I watched it a second time to give it another chance. And I'll probably go with the baseball theme and do the 3-strikes you're out bit.

    But I'm in the I don't really get it camp too. I'm just trying to figure out how producers thought it was going to be entertaining. (of course, with crapfest shows out there like Are you Hot and Love Test or whatever it was called, I guess the bar is not set so high)

    I honestly did stop watching. I'm watching Airline instead, and I'm quite tired of watching drunk, angry flight passengers. But, for me.. it's better than watching Mark pimp himself and his MILLION dollars.

    Regarding his looks....his front teeth are odd (almost like they're still baby teeth) and I think his eyes are really super close. Haven't you ever looked at someone and thought, "hmm..something bugs me about that person.."..?

    Shoot. I thought I had deleted that stupid post.
    Well, he does look a little like Frankenstein.




    What was the point of the show again??
