Waste of time

This show is only based off what rob wants the last one I watched two pole dancing girls won and it was clear that they won cause they are female and wearing next to nothing I thought the pogo guys should of won

The show started good but they always pick the act that’s not really impressive So I’m very disappointed in this show I think they should have had the audience choose

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This amusing reality competition features folks from all walks of life performing in front of a studio audience, hoping to impress and excite while being judged. Some offer outstanding performances of more traditional acts, while others carry out unexpected tricks that range from interesting to just plain weird.

To fit into Rob Dyrdek's edgy style, there are lots of explosions, as well as acts that feature vaping and tricks incorporating nearly bare behinds. Some are so weird that viewers might think Amazingness should be a version of the classic goofy talent series The Gong Show. Overall, Dyrdek fans and lovers of viral vids will enjoy it.
