I mustered the resolve and watched the whole thing, sound and all. Nobody warned me that it's dull.
First off, FSU needs to petition the W Network for screenwriters credit.
I amend my previous sight-unseen remarks to say that Scott looks fairly pathetic and insecure, and his overcompensation in his portrayal of Fake Scott is sad, and not only with the fake gf.
Tessa's doing something else - it's like she thinks people believe she's a hellacious slut, so this reality show is a rebuttal. She won't rebut with "I'm married to Scott." So, she's made her girl parts factory new and spends her evening in patterned pajamas, slipper socks and full make-up, reading a book and making healthy smoothies.
This show reminds me a lot of Jockeys, an American sports reality series that aired on Animal Planet in 2009. That also had manufactured storylines (i.e. the female jockeys fight for their place in a male sport and discuss the issue in expositional, over-literal dialogue among themselves), and the track caller who called the actual race was replaced by Animal Planet voiceovers pretending to call the race. For instance, back then there was a champion racehorse called Zenyetta, who had one way of running - last. She'd run last all the way around the track and make her move in the last quarter to eighth of a mile, run down everybody like a freight train and win sailing away. She never ran any other way, so when her races were called, the caller always acknowledged she was running to form, and he'd alert the viewer/crowd when to look for her patented move. But, on Jockeys, the fake race caller kept saying "OMG - Zenyatta is still last!" "The first half mile in 47 and change and Zenyatta is still last!" and the camera would switch to the jockey's girlfriend biting her lip and stressing. It had absolutely nothing to do with how the race actually unfolded, which involved the jockey sitting chilly on Zenyatta, not WANTING her to move til the end.
In the Tessa & Scott previews, it looked to me as if not only did they replace the music in the sd, they also faked the commentary. Also, they set it up as if they were disappointed in their Quebec short dance, never mentioning the huge score. It's so much like Jockeys I wonder if there's any production team cross-over.

"No. I'm more concerned with how come this t-shirt gives me breasts."

like it TOO much. It will show off the heat I'm packing and
my high, firm, full ass will distract from the skating.
