'Expedition Impossible' Explores Morocco, Sends Home Its First Team (VIDEO)

'Expedition Impossible'To succeed in a team-based competition like the new reality series 'Expedition Impossible' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC), you must work together. Teamwork is key, and with three people on each group in this show, it's even more important to make sure everyone is working together and toward the same goals.

While it's normal for stress and exhaustion to cause friction as the series progresses, the team called Latin Persuasion were bickering almost from the moment the competition began. Even when they fell into last place, they kept at it.

During a challenge where they had to find water in the Moroccan desert using the traditional methods of the local people, Raven Garcia finally laid into Mai Reyes for doing a lot of standing around so far in the game and not much else.

The constant arguing hurt the women at each point in the competition. Once they fell into last place, they never fully recovered, thus becoming the first team eliminated from the show.

What did you think of Mark Burnett's latest foray into reality television?

I thought the show was a complete bore. What did they do in the episode? They basically hiked through the desert. That's it. The repelled down a cliff and rode a camel. The rest was the teams walking. This show looks like a pathetic Amazing Race knock-off after one episode.

Burnett's old Eco Challenge was the best thing on TV. I thought this would be similar but it's nowhere near. Eco Challenge was skill driven and the contestants were real expedition race experts. This is more like Survivor on the move. Where did they get some of these people? Only a couple of the teams look as if they could survive a whole day in the ourdoors! So one of the good teams finds water, and none of the other teams have to find water, they just cash in on the work of the first team. Probably won't watch much of this. Mark, please bring back the REAL expedition race!
