I've been so bored that I've been watching the older shows. Hard to tell, but impressions is that the play is worse and worse every season.
One thing though. After the first couple where the hosts had no clue, Stephanie Sparks was just fine - at least she knew golf. the previous and Lafoya just stood dumb while the male hosts talked 'at' her.
So I appreciated Stephanie a lot. Jury is still out on Melanie, but she's absolutely gorgeous, and the most professional 'host' so far. My preference would be to have Melanie for professionalism and eye candy, and S.S. for golf commentary and a bit more accessible eye candy - she's pretty too IMO.
This season the contestants just look like caricatures of previous shows where about half the women get super pissy about halfway through the show. Though in this case, I think it's already started.
Watching the old episodes also gave me nice stereotypes of what faces/attitudes I can apply to various posters here. That's a fun exercise, but probably not fair. Hard to watch the personalities of the old males, or most of the females...the play is good, but the personalities have about a 1 in 3 hit rate of just very detestable people. Watching the two episodes with Tommy Two Gloves - it's very clear why he's made it and most really haven't - also a decent person.
