Khao Neow was the loser on the day

The Contender

I.Z. Reloaded was incensed about AXN‘s The Contender Asia imposing a gag order on the press attending the final of the The Contender Asia event.

If you don’t watch The Contender Asia or AXN, The Contender Asia is basically a “reality” program featuring a competition where competitors Muay Thai each other until they become Khao Neow Ma Muang. The person that most resembles Khao Neow is usually the loser of the match. The winner of all the matches is The Contender Asia. Something like that, make sure you steam the coconut rice properly.

So anyway, the producers of The Contender Asia told reporters attending the match they were not to report on the result of the match until April 24, after the match, which was fought last night, is transmitted on AXN on April 23.

I suppose this is so that people who didn’t attend the match and wanted to watch the match on April 23 can do so without getting their entertainment ruined by knowing the result. Very thoughtful.

Not so thoughtful is the choice of host in Jaymee Ong. She must be really tired, and needs to get her vocal cords oiled because she sounds really squeaky.
