We would have mopped the floor with em...

But they never even bothered to respond to the pre-app I sent, didn't keep up with their mailing list, nor inform applicants of the process in any way.

Checked with some other folks, who also felt their original contact Emails fell into the void or something, and for the most part people lost interest cause the folks running the show flatly ignored em and gave em no information one way or the other, ever.

I dunno about other folks, but I found that insulting enough, to never, ever be told anything, to not remain interested in the process - there was never any confirmation of receipt of the mails, no updates (which were promised) and they didn't even have the decency to tell us once they'd already selected the folks they were gonna pick, so screw em.

In my opinion the quality of the show started to go down around that time too, it becoming more and more obvious when parts were "planted" and designs were "handed" to the teams, and almost completely built by the shows planted "expert" on the team.

Dunno about you, but damned if I would play parts gopher to go grab pre-planted material to build something I had no hand in designing, for some guy who's gonna put it together without my input or assistance.

Especially since I could prolly do ten times better turned loose in a junkyard and machine shop with a mission in mind.

They took a right good idea and then reduced it to something as "real" as WWF wrestling, and to me that's a damned shame.
