The black dude is a tool.

That jail looks like a zoo.

Man, I wouldn't blame them for leaving. That place is a fucking hellhole.

That black dude peacocking all over the place is not going to end well for him, I should think. He's a big dude, but there's some nasty motherfuckers in that place.

I hope the black guy and the inmate they interviewed that said he was an Apex Predator get into it...that would be entertaining.

How is the prison guard going to face his job after this?   He works in a prison yet didn't know what prison would be like?   He looks like bully ray from wwe, good old country boy without all the circuits firing upstairs.

I was thinking the same thing, I don't know how the prison guard can go back to his job, or go anywhere else as a CO as this could haunt him the rest of his life.

Quitting wasn't so bad, but saying "the only way I'm quitting is if I get shived" and then proceeds to quit in intake, never goes inside the jail and cries on the drive back...game over

I can see where the black guy is coming from... he sees himself as a leader and a cut above and I'm guessing he is 

Isn't this filmed in Alabama?

Not sure how racist is is in their jails, but i would think a black guy locked up in Alabama should not be too cocky

Are you really under the impression there aren't very many black people in Alabama?

you get a group of guys that stick together, doesn't matter how big someone is, they'll go down. seen it happen many times.

you're right, all that peacocking is putting a target on his back. if he'd had just come in and played it cool, he could've done really well.

we'll see how it shakes out.

I must have missed that but I thnk the black guy is by far the strongest out of the guys..the 2 stockier white guys were pussies

But hey, I don't blame anyone for backing out..it's a real stupid idea to go into a prison when you are innocent

How much do these people get paid to go into prison for this show?

I remember reading that they don't get paid all that much at all. One chick from one of the seasons used it to get followers on instagram, so she could sell ass pics on onlyfans.

I feel bad for the marine dude. I think if he didn't fuck up his story he could have gone on. Not all 60 days, but for a couple of weeks.

Fat CO is a failure as a man.

Again, black dude is way too cocky.

Black chick and her "help I can't have gluten" shit. GTFO

I thought they had dog turds for COs on the guy's side, but the chicks are taking it to the next level.

Looks like poly sci guy gets in next week and hopefully gets raped

After seeing this thread I gave it a try. There is zero chance this show is real.

100% real, former inmates have talked about being in jail while it's filmed, the pods are modified with cameras and they are told  its a documentary about first time inmates

i know several CO's from the 1st season. it's real, they had no idea they were filming this type of show.

now, all the season's after the 1st, how can they NOT think it's 60 days in when a group of people come in for months filming a "documentary".

Well they start filming the "documentary" before the new inmates arrive...not that it isn't a red flag that something might be coming up soon. I have no idea how long they wait though before putting in the "fresh meat".

I thought they got 30k the first few seasons.  For people in the Midwest or very rural areas, that is a life changing amount.  Maybe it's 3k per episode for 10 episodes. I thought that it was 30k though to make it all the way to 60 days originally.  1500 a month before taxes?  No way someone gives up 60 days for a few grand.

I live in the Midwest.

$30K isn't close to being a life changing amount.

Let me guess, you're somewhere on the coast and think we all drive tractors to work

If you saw the people on the show....30k was life changing.  I used to film surrogacy videos and those people made 30-50k and would buy a house with that in Kentucky or South Carolina.   
 

I wasn't speaking in absolutes....I'm pretty confident you don't represent the entire Midwest.  Also, tractors are extremely expensive and so are working farms.  I'm talking trailer trash and lower income parts of the Midwest.   When they have the show in California or Florida maybe it will be different, but the people on the show didn't seem overly successful.

Just finished first episode. Decided to watch after reading this thread. I've seen all past seasons and that prison is by far the worse one the contestants have ever had to go through.

Right after the CO tapped, and it showed the graphic of all of them and they blacked his picture out, I knew it's going to be a bad season for quitters. 

 

Not or saying I blame them (I couldn't do it), but WOW! 

Name checks out

I would assume the people in and out of county jail don't watch much a&e to be aware such a show exists?

They tried to pull him out when he scratched his arm.  I chuckled.
