Testers run the course during the day, working out the kinks for the contestants at night.
Just before filming, the hosts took some time to talk with Channel 3 about the show’s fans in Cleveland.
“They’re so excited to see it and we’re excited to be here,” said Matt Iseman.
“We’re excited. I mean you look at the history of sports especially here in Cleveland. You see what the Cavaliers are doing, what they did, what the Indians did last year,” Akbar Gbajabiamila told us.
“It’s one of the rare shows left that you can watch with your family without having to be worried about what you’re going to see or what people will say on the show,” said Kristine Leahy.
You don’t see him on screen, but Kent Weed is the top dog – Executive Producer. He chose Cleveland for the show.
“We settled on Cleveland primarily because there are so many fans from Cleveland,” Weed said.
Those fans showed up to support the contestants and a city that’s once again shining bright for all to see.
Another episode shot in Cleveland will air in August. That will feature contestants who made it to the city quarter finals.
