Kendall Grove says Spike TV controls The Ultimate Fighter, not the UFC

Kendall Grove says Spike TV controls The Ultimate Fighter, not the UFC

Last night on TapouT Radio, Kendal Grove shared a story of just why flushable wipes are important. It was disgusting and if you insist on listening to the audio, you can get it here. The story was filled with unflushable deification that haunted him like the intro song to Charles in Charge. If you expected a segue from ‘fecal matter’ to ‘Spike TV executives’, then you’re going to be let down. Instead, I’ll just let Kendall Grove do it for me.

Spike TV pretty much runs everything on The Ultimate Fighter. They could be sub-leasing the UFC name, but I’m sure Dana and the UFC are getting a nice little pay check from Spike but other than that, Spike runs the thing. Dana doesn’t choose who’s going to be on the show, it’s Spike executives. Even when I was on there in the earlier seasons, they were picking a couple guys with funny personalities. I’m pretty sure I got on there not because of my good looks, but because I had a pretty good personality. Everything is ratings to these guys. Just like that season where they shot [expletive] inside the fruit…people do that stuff. Why? Because of ratings. Is it a health violation? Yeah, but did you see the Spike TV people stop that from happening? It sells ratings and that’s all they care about. They could give two [expletives] about our career. They just care about the six-weeks that they’re shooting and get as much drama and stupidity out of us. That’s all we are to them is cattle and sheep. They way they run things, they’re slowly controlling us to be like that.”

There’s a rumor that Krazy Horse was expedited through the TUF 12 selection process before being axed by a Spike TV executive for something he did prior to the show’s taping. I’m sure we will all find out what it is in a flurry of ad promos whenever the next season of TUF drops on your television. [Source]
