Will you watch the Contender?

All you male oC fans can start watching this show to rebuild the testosterone levels in your body



The promos are kind of sappy.


I hope they actually show them fighting and competing.

Was this show delayed because of the contestant who killed himself?

In all honesty, fighting has evolved way past boxing at this point.
I've had about 0 interest in boxing since becoming a fan of
UFC and Pride. To me, boxing lost all of it's luster when MMA gained popularity since MMA is a much more complete sport. While "The Contender" will probably be made better than "The Ultimate Fighter" airing on Spike, I'm far more interested in multi dimensional fighting than I am in boxing. So, after all that rambling, the answer is no.

No. Except for Survivor, I'm done with Burnett reality programming.

I'll watch. I love boxing and am always willing to give Burnett a chance. Hey, The Apprentice didn't start to suck until Season 2, right?

I don't plan on watching the contender the show really doesn't appeal to me, in any form.
