Spike TV’s ‘Most Extreme Elimination Challenge’ Makes Fun Of Everyone Except Asians

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The voiceover actors of Spike TV’s Most Extreme Elimination Challenge (MXC), make fun of everything and everyone in their show.

Everyone but Asians that is.

According to the show’s producers and “voices,” actors Victor Wilson, Christopher Darga, Mary Scheer and John Cervenka, making fun of Asians on a show about Asians isn’t all that funny.

Says Cervenka: “We have a bunch of Japanese people running around doing stunts on this show with their dialogue completely omitted. We have the opportunity to literally put words in their mouths but a fake Japanese accent isn’t that funny.”

He adds, “Somehow, making an Asian guy’s name ‘Murray Schwartz’ is much funnier than giving him an authentic name and accent.”

Victor Wilson – who does the voice of field correspondent Guy Le Douche – says he enjoys giving “Le Douche a French name but a funky accent nobody can really decipher.”

MXC begins its fifth season Friday (Nov. 10) and the actors say they will skewer pop culture more than ever before and Cervenka says that includes Tom Cruise, the skinny celebrity crack whore trend and lots more – but no Asians.
