Rousey: TUF 18 emotional, not 'overly sexual'


TUF 18 coach Ronda Rousey appeared Wednesday on a Facebook chat sponsored by Metro PCS, and discussed filming of the reality series, which debuts Sept. 4 on the new FOX Sports 1 channel.

When news came out that the latest version of TUF would be coed, there were some obvious predictions about what young, in shape men and women would get up to in a high pressure situation with all media access completely restricted.

However, Rousey said it was not Temptation Island in Vegas.

“Surprisingly, it is much more professional than you would have thought," said Rousey. "I wouldn’t say it’s an overly sexual season, but I think it’s a much more emotional one. So far, it’s tiring, and it’s every day. It’s been a very exciting season, but it has also been very taxing on everybody. So I think we’re all going to be very happy to get home, but I’m sure all the fans will be very happy with the result.”

“It’s a lot more work than I thought it would be, and it’s a lot more emotionally taxing than I thought it would be," said Rousey. "You care a lot about these kids. I just felt like any kind of heartbreak or triumph, whatever they’re going through, I share in it.  It’s exhausting going through that over and over and over with every competitor. You’re just so emotionally invested in every person that it really takes a lot out of you.”

“The talent is great. I’m really impressed with the kind of people that we saw on the show this season for the girls and the guys. All of the fights have been really exciting. Really, it has exceeded my expectations.”

I kind of figured it was. Its so to tell when it comes to Dana. He has so many rabid fanboys that proclaim his word as the gospel truth.

I hope there isn't some kind of CONTROVERSIAL INCIDENT which could put the WHOLE TUF CONCEPT at RISK.
