basically, there are three "celebrity" judges - the only one that i recognized was lorenzo lamas (so his career must be doing really well). what they do is bring people out in swimwear and then give them a rating on a scale of 1-10 based on sex appeal, there face and body. some of the comments and remarks were totally rude...but i guess they need to be in order to gain ratings. anyway, like i said, there are some very well "put together" people that were being torn apart and it just makes me feel bad for anyone who's doing the wrong things to get the perfect body like being anorexic or bulimic. sorry for the run-on sentences!
