One of the twenty somethings on the Below Deck Max and Dax’s excellent adventure episode issued a public apology on Twitter today.
Yahoo Sports reported:
UNLV starting quarterback Max Gilliam issued an apology Monday for eating sushi off of a nude model while appearing on the reality television show “Below Deck.”
Yes, you read that sentence correctly.
Gilliam claims the sushi idea came from the show’s producers.
“I would like to apologize for my poor judgment while on the TV show ‘Below Deck’ and acknowledge that I have made a mistake that I will learn from. While it was not my idea nor any of my friends’ ideas to eat sushi off of a model, I should have exercised better judgment and declined the idea immediately when it was brought up by the producers,” Gilliam said in a message posted to Twitter.
Smellys Fishy To Me
I totally believe half the crap they did was at the request of production. This is after all still a reality show. I was thinking during tonight’s episode that the caviar was not “forgotten” and the thruster worked just fine or Captain Lee would not be just standing there saying it wasn’t working if it were not. And of course the red wine thing was scripted. When reality shows first started we believed everything we saw. Ah those were the days. The longer we keep on churning out this cheap nonsense instead of working on scripted shows, the more produced they become.
Meanwhile, the kids were probably better behaved when the cameras were not on them. And Max really is a really good quarterback. He’s a graduating senior so do be surprised to see him drafted by the NFL. It’s hilarious to me that the guys got backlash for this. Oh how times have changed since the 80s.
