JUNKWARS rigged?

The first time I saw it I was impressed. 2 teams independently solving a problem by taking different approaches. And they both completed it in the time allowed. barely.

Well after a second time I realized there were too many coincidences and close calls and they always had a problem right at the end that they barely solve in time.

Now I watch it and it seems to be just a drama with a little comedy and math/science thrown in.

Is that just me? I still enjoy it but not as much as when I thought it was “real”.

See this thread
And this one.

and a few more that you’ll find if you do a search on Junkyard Wars.

Thanks, I screwed up. I thought the name was Junkwars instead of junk yard wars. sorry to waste the post.

moderator , can you kill this post?
