I think it is called editing
I make television for a living- and work with some of the
‘geniuses’ who decide what gets shown and how it doesn’t.
I dont do reality shows if I can help it but who doesn’t need dollaz
big city life is expensive.
most of the producers treat the ‘talent’ like wind up toys.
wind em up and shoot hours of shit footage and cut it together.
One client is the executive of all of the housewives shows,
he also does top chef.
he is a genius at getting people to play each other.
its amazing how he gets his staff to excite, gets these idiots
to play the fool.
I would guess for dudes who are semi pro fighters complete with tattoos,
epic cliches , and loaded with testosterone
your gonna get some good drama
and the goons with the most drama are going to be on TV the most.
the show is going down hill- how many unknown semi pros are there
with 3 fights who would be on the show vs go to work and get things done.
how much ‘raw talent’ can their be.
I don’t think the conditioning test is that off.
Brock if anything is a hard worker, why would’nt
it be edited to highlight the contrast in Brock and JDS.
I cant believe I actually watched this.
I guess I was expecting the beard
Very interesting post. I met a guy at the gym who does the same thing and he told me almost exactly what you said. He travels all over the place as a contractor and does video editing. You may even know him, not knowing how big of a community it is.
My uderstanding of the ‘try-out’ process from guys I know who have done it is thy have you grapple starting on you knees, then they do a mit workout where they call combinations to see how much striking you have trained, etc. My one friend (who is a Greco guy) did great on the grappling but was told to come back when he got better at his striking because the guy was telling him to do things he wasn’t familiar with.
They interview you briefly, as well and I have no idea how they screen once you pass that initial phase, but it sounds like initially they are screened largely on skill.
Did anyone see that WWE is now starting their own show with Stone Cold as the leader?
