Maybe just a poor culmination of class and geographical differences but there were definitely a ton of guys who took it way too seriously. I’m all for being competitive but the level that it was taken to made the whole experience miserable - and that was just being around them.

Haha, only problem is that I’m a pretty slim guy to start off with and don’t exactly have a ton of lightness to add! Read more
