Mark Cuban: “unfortunate that [Grayson] lost,” show “not about who I like the most.”
Mark Cuban’s third test of the cast of The Benefactor was a game of Jenga between the two people he was considering cutting, Grayson and William. William was an obnoxious prick while playing but ended up winning, sending Grayson home. On his blog, Mark Cuban writes in a “behind the scenes” post that “Grayson deserved a ton of credit for ignoring every bit of it and keeping her cool. It was unfortunate that she lost.” He adds that the show “is not about who I like the most. I know exactly what I am looking for from each test. These are tests for success, not who I want to have a drink with.” The second episode airs tonight; last week’s debut episode “helped ABC earn a solid ratings win Monday,” Zap2it.com reports. The show won its hour with about 6.96 million viewers.
