I was not aware that Ed Tom Bell had joined the playground. I'm definitely, probably just messin', man.

I dunno, I think it's a little too early to count this season out. I personally am glad that they started with 32 guys and made them fight initially. It's good to be able to watch these guys fight before watching them in the house. I also am sick and tired of guys like Gabe Rudiger, Marlon Sims, etc. who come on the show and talk about being bad but can't back it up. So it's good to know that the fighters in the house actually deserve to be in there. Although I think they did match up a couple of guys who could have both made it into the house and match up a couple of guys who neither one would have made it into the house, if the match-ups were different. Either way, in the end there will be only 1 fighter who won't have lost.

I think it'll be good, Page and Forest are entertaining guys.

"DAMN!!! That's all I'm gonna write for notes on this guy"
"Oh, hell! I don't even know how to spell what I'm trying to write."
"That guy's good, he's got good power... did you smell that guy? That's probably why he knocked the other guy out, with his stench... you can have him."

-Edit-
Not to mention the one I thought was the funniest. After Page heard the guy had to cut 17lbs just to fight:

"Come on, 17lbs"
"Let's go 17"
"Who you picking? The fat @$$?"

Was it just me or did Forrest seem grumpy? (I'm not setting up a Forrest Grump joke or anything). He didn't seem to have anything positive to say about the fighters, just a lot of "You gotta be kidding me!!" He already sounds like he's going to be tough to deal with.

Overall I thought it was a good idea to have them fight to get on the show. Like the one guy said "I quit my job, I sold my cars; I'm not going home after 48 hours" - puts it in perspective pretty quickly.

LMAO!! Yeah, I had forgotten about that one. With the guy with the blonde hair and black streaks.

Almost everything he said was hilarious. I can't remember most of it though.

Amir has so much potential its not even funny. He's an am. kickboxer with no pro experience and he beat a guy that has fought in the UFC before! Granted the guy he beat was nothing special but he had so much more experience and Amir still won and by armbar! Once Amir learns the ins-and-outs of grappling/wrestling he will be a BEAST.I don't think he will win the show, but in a few years or so I expect him to be a great fighter.

Another fighter I'm looking out for is Paul Bradley, he's a beastly wrester and he's huge! He's 5'8'', but he has about as much muscle as you can fit onto a 185lb frame. I expect Dolce to go far, he has experience against some good fighters, and a lot of people are praising CB Dollaway; I've never seen him fight but I'll keep an eye out for him as well.

I have to agree, he did sound like he was annoyed by their mistakes. Granted, some of them were stupid mistakes, but he has to remember that a lot of these guys are not as experienced as him.

There were many funny rampage quotes already

Wish every episode has that many fights, but its good to weed out the weakest fighters, the main fights should be more competative than the past few seasons, looking forward to this sick KO next week

Yeah, I'm excited as well. Especially since this is the first season that I get to see all the way through. Anyways, I have a feeling that it is Brandon Sene who provides the sick KO or maybe Gerald Harris, as he has some heavy hands.

It must really suck for the 16 guys going home - who knows what they gave up to come out to L.V. thinking they were going to be spending several weeks there.

Lol at the hyperbole being used on the show - "knockout of the century".

If you saw the trailer at the end of the show it looks like there will be the usual (if not greater) amount of destruction of property in this season.

From what they showed on what happens in the rest of the season it looks like the house gets absolutely trashed......again. Don't know what to think of these fighters yet, I still only think there's 3-4 good/ok fighters on the show. I'll have to wait and see how the rest of the fights go. Gerald Harris looked good and showed good wrestling/GNP as usual, Tim C. showed his BJJ is really good (even though it looked like the other guy had no ground game what so ever), and Jesse Taylor was impressive as well.

Im looking forward to seeing when pisses rampage off, it looked like he was just going to destroy that entire room in the clip at the end.

I lol'd at Rampage when he said to bring back Tim Credeur, and Dana's like "He's still here."
