After watching ECO challenge Fiji. It would seem that its more about reallality tv programming then a sport/adventure show. How the lead team called for help and got a new boat. That should have ended their race.
Also, how you cut out most of the support staff for the racers. Some quick clips here there. In one shot I saw 3 or 4 support staff for each racer on the repelling down the water fall. These are not talked about. Do the racers even carry their own climbing gear or is given to them like the lines on the mountain?
Lastly, I would have liked to see a final list of all the team’s that finished. Instead of the ones that had the best story.
We have linked an article that includes all teams and where they finished.
