Trivia

The show was financed through an Indiegogo campaign. According to claims by former producers, the show was mostly the idea of Channel Awesome CEO, Michael Michaud, and few of the talent had interest in it. Multiple pilots were shot and a potential fraud investigation by Indiegogo pushed Michaud to hastily release the show to deliver on the promise. Crowdfunding perks were also delivered six months late. See more »

An embarrassment, and perhaps the most transparent evidence of theft ever captured on film
20 May 2016 | by theGreatJayGatsbySee all my reviews

The show was funded by crowdsourcing, the project raised $90,000 of devoted fans' money and THIS was the result? Cheap sets--abominably cheap mind you, like $500 at most. Ridiculously low budget and pointless "physical challenges" which consist of playing literal board games you can buy yourself. Literally hungry hungry hippos, for example. You've got Cinema Snob Brad looking painfully uncomfortable being there, and who could blame him. There is zero excitement or gravitas from any of the contestants. No prizes. No fun. The only one who looks like they're trying is Tamara who makes the most of an abysmal script/premise. There's an indescribably garish, almost foreboding atmosphere about the whole thing. You have to see it yourself to know what I'm talking about, but it truly does feel like everyone is there against their will, in someone's basement, with the suppressed knowledge that this is utter garbage they're making. Doug Walker and company should be ashamed.
