I thought the show was hilarious but I thought there was something missing from making it truly a weekly must see show for me. I guess I just didn't believe these people were really that smart. You never see them demonstrating their abilities. Panhandling isn't that difficult. A dumb person could very well make more money than a smart person.
I think they should have made them do actual business tasks. Then tear them down. Kind of a build them up and tear them up sort of mentality.
