To or not to

I watched Boot Camp. I was thinking of writing some long, pontificating entry about society or some general source of bullshit in the immediate environment, but then I was like, no. Since my writing is like, barely tolerable, I'll spare people.
I did think that it was heartwarming and blah blah blah. I wonder if they didn't put in the one person that would drop out early so they could kick out the one guy without giving him the chance to take out the asshole they planted (who will manage to stay in— we know this because they said "Meyer's scheming will continue"; he's the antagonist now; a main character). I like some of the people on the show; I'm too used to reality shows where everyone is there for fame or money. Some of these people actually look like they want to be all they can be. Or whatever. It's too bad that the aim of the show is to tear people apart, which is exactly the opposite idea of real boot camp. That and the fact that you can't call it a reality show if it's only reality-based (well, you can, but shouldn't be allowed to). In a reality show, they wouldn't have a plant like Meyer, or, in the least, Park would have been able to exercise his option to take revenge (what the hell happened to that this week? So if they get two washouts, no one gets voted out? What if four people leave?)
