It wuz a pretty good job all around. I wunder if the audiens wuz in on it?

I luv the show, but hav notist a few thingz they do to make it more exciting.

The audiens sound iz at least haf dubbed in. They add more commentary from Matt and Akbar in editing. And I suspect that they sumtimez shuffle the order uv the contestant's runz, kuz its almost alwayz the most interesting at the end. They can do that to sum degree by knowing their abilityz very well, but it seemz they get it rite too reliably to be the actual order uv events.

Even tho it detracts from the authentisity, it duznt bug me at all.

We all died after he filmed the 3rd commercial. Inside, I mean. A little bit.

The biggest tip off that it wuz fake iz that it wuz never in the brodcast show.

They dont show every run, but this woud hav been so over the top amazing that they woud haf to show it.

They hav had a few geezerz run just az a novelty. They never get very far. The oldest serious contestants are in their mid 50z and aje gets to be a tokking point in the late 30z. In the 1st episode uv the Vegas finalz on Monday, Travis Rozen (43) broke hiz ankle. Its probably not aje related tho, kuz that obstacle nokt out a bunch uv contestants.
