Do you watch it? Why is it such a phenomenon?
The only way I would watch that show is if you forced me to ala "A Clockwork Orange". I haven't the first clue about why it's popular, but it does answer a question my high school civics teacher once asked about what people will watch on TV. I won't post the question here because of its crudeness.
I've watched it a couple of times.... I concluded that it was a complete waste of time.
It stresses me out. Plus, it emphasizes the greed of America.
It casts its players based on how they come across on TV, like many game shows lately, and the producers seem to prefer loud, hyperactive contestants.
To me, the show can be interesting at times, the interplay between logic and intuition, greed and contentment, playing the odds or playing it safe, and even the public facades people wear.
I suspect the 25 or so gorgeous models don't hurt much either. Oh, and making a bad guy, "the banker," was a stroke of genius for nabbing the game show fanatics.
