Is it just me, or did the judges in this show seem to be more competitive than the competitors?

They all seemed eager to claim the prize of "Most Contoversial" or "Most Obnoxious". You could just imagine them at home prior to the contest, planning hilarious insults to dish out to the contestants. Never mind if none of the contestants deserved to be insulted - the judges were going to dish them out anyway. How else would their comments be chosen for the highlights package?
