Default Mayhem Miller apologizes for Bully Beatdown

http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/?go=...&page=1&pc=114

I have a confession to make.

Bully Beatdown is completely fake. Everyone on it is actors. Everyone involved with the show knows that it is fake and we script pretty much everything that comes out of their mouth. I have not yet got an executive producer credit, or a writer's credit- but I write the bully's dialouge myself. I will be E.P. on season two. That's right, our scripted fake show is suppossedly doing so well done that we will be getting a season two. Makes my stomach hurt that I'm selling this slop. I'm sorry.

The fights are the most complicated portion of the show. The real trick is, hiring stuntmen that are so skilled that they can make it look like we are putting them in 16 oz gloves, headgear and convincingly get beat up by mixed martial artists. We looked high and low, but we found them, and made the show really convincing. Unfortunately, the people on the internet are much too bright to be fooled by this trickery, and have exposed us. This doesn't really affect us too much, because no one cares what a few back alley websites say about our hit MTV show, but I couldn't bear to read the forum with all this shame that I'm carrying around. I'm actually considering turning down the contract to host the next season because of the ridicule that I'm recieving on this board and others.

Again. I'm sorry interwebz. I apologize, sincerely.
Haha nice, at least he is honest.
But.... I wonder if MTV is going to be mad that he is admitting its fake?
or is it all a prank? Who knows... it seemed very fake.

haha on the underground forum somebody posted this as a reply

How lame.

If he actually feels like he needs to apologize for his actions then the only person he ripped off was himself. Seriously, if you know a show is fake, and you feel guilty about making a fake show, then simply DON'T do it. It's stupid to apologize when you did not really do anything wrong. It makes you seem like you DID do something wrong and you KNEW it.

News flash Mayhem - nobody cares or is surprised that a show on MTV is fake.

Am I the only one that read that as being 100% sarcastic??
I think some of it is scripted (like the challenges) but I think the beatdowns are real.

No Mayhem already had to come out and mention it was screwed up because of an AD they put out in cali

"Looking for tough guys who look like tough guys to be on a tv show about bullies yada yada"

They where looking for actor type dudes.

I could barely see for the sarcasism.


Gotta love Mayhem.

JB, think Mayhem and then read it again. I would bet my paycheck that he feel ZERO guilt. He is going over the top, typical Mayhem style.
