A really good TV show. Some of the stories are sob stories but it's all good. The only thing is the gore. This one girl's arm tore open! That isn't acceptable.

A host with the Most . . . Arrogance

I'm 74 years old, a retired English professor, and I gotta say, I woulda given 5 stars to this show, if Chris Distefano had been required to take some classes on humility. He really seems to need to listen to himself in every episode where he shows his biases against some of the non American contestants. So far while watching season 2 ,I noticed how he would make some very demeaning remarks about some of the competitors like ". . . well, he's a Frenchman and a showoff . . . ". I was embarrassed that he's so insensitive to the words coming out of his mouth. The above paraphrase is just 1 remark that stands as part of a pattern that seems so inappropriate for a HOST for the competition, a position that, it would seem to me, should be careful about not stereotyping people on such a social as well as cultural medium as Netflix/International television. Just a thought!
