Would love to just see his team remain completely intact all the way through to the end of the season.
    I also like that he is trying to instill in all of them to stay calm and do everything right the instead of rushing as that ends up helping them big time.

    I watch, but I fast forward thru 1/3 to 1/2 of the show.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I do too. I basically fast-forward through anything that isn't the Evolutions or the Circus. The drama stuff bores me.

    What I find interesting about the "DRAMA" is that while Team Noah has found a way to work together, communicate well with each other, and work well under the pressure of an evolution, instead of observing what they are doing right and emulate it the other teams can be bothered and instead want to break up a successful team just because they are successful.The teams that are full of "DRAMA" can't seem to look past it and work as a team.

    The one I want to see crash and burn is Maria Kang the "DRAMA QUEEN" of the Red Team.

    For somebody who markets herself as the "No Excuse Mom", she's certainly full of excuses.

    I know that really bothered me and seeing her throw all her teammates under the bus was a huge red flag in regards to her character. I think she must be very difficult to live with as it's her way or the high way, very control freak. Very non empathetic.

    I can't help but wonder how much this edit is going to damage her brand.

    I can't imagine she'll have a brand after this. And Tee isn't fairing much better.

    Tee self-destructed because she thought she could correct anything in other people (or at least that's how she was presented in the introduction), and add in the fact she seems to be inflexible and made poor choices in handling the Circus picks, and it's a recipe for disaster. Given the previews though, which seem to show participants of the next Circus to be Ivette, Maria and Ashley, I think her team might survive another week without losing another participant simply because I'd like to think Maria would be the weakest link, but it wouldn't surprise if Ivette with her nervousness blows it and leaves Tee with only Tony, at which point it'll just be a matter of time before her entire team is wiped out, because no matter how they want to present the Evolutions as being "fair" to the teams with fewer participants by reducing numbers, end of the day, having more people means having more ideas and more help, therefore leading to a better chance of getting things done, I just don't see how Tee's team is going to recover, and having to go into the Circus repeatedly without pause will destroy a competitor because it's simply physically grueling.

    Honestly, green team might have this in the bag; the other three team leaders seem so focused on beating each other, while Noah seems much more interested in making sure his team is learning and growing from the experience.
