THE CONTENDER (NBC)

Wow, it was pretty good… I would’ve wanted Peter Monfredo to win… he’s pretty good, but he didn’t really step it up in the fight… his daughter is so cute though… lol

Overall as a show, you could totally tell it was a Burnett show, from the opening credits to the camera shots to the music and eliminated contestant exit… but somehow it all worked…

The fight was intense, more so than regular fights that you’d see on Fridays on ESPN2 or occasionally on FSN, because you got to see their teammates, but most importantly their families… the parents, their wives, their children… I think the slow-mo was a little too much, and the editing made the rounds seem so short… but still effective…

I agree with the critics that this show is definitely among the “reality show elite” joining AMAZING RACE, SURVIVOR, and APPRENTICE… it isn’t degrading or embarassing to the human race (like most other reality shows) … I think I might have to watch it now… anyway, I usually watch NBC on Sundays @ 8PM anyway…
