My buddy caught the new Smashes episode yesterday & when asked how it was he told me "Sucked man, it was all filler & a 30second fight." So I turned on the Smashes this morning with little hope....
BUT Wow what a neat episode! I guess because we already know enough about Rob & Xavier the editing crew just focused on "inside the house" scenes & general team comradery. The whole episode felt like Bonus Material from a DVD or something & the out come was fantastic! Seeing the fighters sit on the deck, drink beer & genuinely be friends is a nice change of pace for TUF instead of the usual "Lemme bang bro" scenarios.. I've never laughed so hard at a TUF episode before. Watching Ben Alloway gain weight by the minute was awesome, at one point he sat in front of the camera just to say "I love eating". Also Freahshow drawing a dick on his leg had me roaring!! & watching both teams lose it for a good 5 minutes was priceless. Something about seeing George in a good mood just warms my heart. haha Anyways..
-Best episode of TUF in years.
-Brad vs Robert is a sick fight
-Robert is beast & will probably KO Brad
-Brad will talk shit about it in his diary
-I can't see Freakshow losing to that tiny Aussie surfer dude
-But I like the surfer dude & hope he gets a fight on the finale
-I'm excited to see what matches are made with the remaining cast!
