American reality dating shows
I should note that, although there was the bit at the beginning where Jamie and Adam talk, we were never explicitly told what the myth was.
I did notice some of the girls' hair looked a little weird, though, and when we were taken back to the nightclub afterward for the debriefing, the guys concluded that it must have had something to do with testing hair color.
If this thread has taught me anything, it's that reality shows like to edit shit.. Single most underrated challenge has to be getting up the energy to do physical challenges when you haven't eaten or slept.

The awkwardness was compounded by the fact that there was a camera three feet to my right that I had to avoid looking at while trying to hold a conversation.
