    I'm glad Troy won it, usually gets shafted placement wise. JOJ and Freeman should be placing top 5 easily in shows like these. Conditioning always gets them.

You got these dinosaurs calling out Evan, Evan was just trying his hardest to be professional and show respect but all kevin could do was interrupt him.
    Your Point is well taken! That being said the guys in the 90s were better because the standard was based alot more on conditioning than just size for size sake like today! As for Kevins opinion,alot of guys get paid alot of money on radio and tv to give a strong opinion and it sells!

    he is doing it

    he knows it's a lifetime opportunity to stand on that stage

    i think kevin is a wee bit bias towards will because troy was obviously much harder and more dense than will was. but i definitely agree that will in 4th was wackkk

Kevin really put Evan on the spot by saying:"honestly, you really believe that Will deserved 4th." He is saying that Evan will say whatever the judges want to hear so they dont fuck him over in the future.

    The difference between Football and basketball commentators is that they are old retired or sometimes guys who never played professional and can say whatever they want.

    Kevins Keepin it real catch phrase is very, for a lack of better words, stupid. He is voicing his opinion. And by saying he is keeping it real is like saying that what he is saying is absolutely right and that nobody else will speak up and he is the only one with enough balls to say anything. Im not a judge, and I dont know anything, but he could be right about Will winning, but no matter how much bitching and complaing he does it will not change that. He ruined the victory for Troy.
    I agree that the way he said it put him on the spot and kind of insinuated what you're saying. Honestly though, it's just kind of like an impromptu wrap-up video and it's not like he said that stuff to Troy during his interview with him. There's always going to be disagreement over who should have won a show, but it's not like anything is ruined. At the end of the day, it's just an opinion. Troy still wins.

    When you watch football or basketball commentators, they frequently disagree and speak up when they can't stand not to!

    Again, nobody uses the sun to get an even tan or base anymore. That rub on shit looks blotchy. Im sure I will see the same stuff when I look at the USA pics.

    Kevin interrupted him like once, at the beginning re: Will Harris. Strong personality and opinion - sure. Might be kind of abrasive, but to me that's preferable to the vanilla discussion in video usually. I don't think it was really unprofessional like someone else said.

    You can't tell it, but the music is the background was EXTREMELY loud. They kept it at show volume.

    I'm sure that has something to do with it.
