    Sorry John, didn't notice the press release... I guess I always just take the easy way out of things.

    "So and so graduated with honors from *insert prestigious university* with a degree in business/economics/etc and went on to make their fortune in real estate/investing/marketing/etc. Their hobbies are *insert something adventurous or glamorous*"


    Where are the high school educated underdogs that I was hoping to see? I thought one of the points of the show was to see how street smarts held up against education in the business world? I didn't even see many people who had to overcome diversity to get where they are in the world. I was hoping to see someone who had smarts and ambition, but had never before been given the opportunity to succeed.

    Was anyone else hoping for more scrappers to root for/against, or was I the only one?

    SG Look for the scrapper from Boise. I have been working out at the same gym as him and keeping my ears open. He's a guy with nothing but a highschool diploma, he takes care of his disabled little sister and mother and started his own business out of his house. Plus I heard he's not afraid to share his opion!

    I actually tried out for the show and they presented it to be a "street smarts" vs "book smarts" and I do not see any of that from the bios. I think it will be an interesting watch.
