Oh cool, another Newbie!!! Welcome to the boards, Flystorms.
Maybe it's the cheezy staged set lighting for the cutting ceremonies? Nah, we are used to that, most TC areas look like a Pier One Imports store blew up in them.
If I was going to try and figure it out, at least some part would be that it's boring after they all go out on their ONE challenge. And do we get to see anything remotely new on these treasure hunts? No. See Azhatt row, see Rupert2 run, see Kendra not swim. Yawwwn!
They need something else to do besides run around different islands, wear funny hats, and speak with really, really badly done accents.
It just seems like the show should be called "Castaway" as in MB had to do something to fill the spot so he castaway any semblance of thought and just tossed a formula onto the screen for a few weeks.
