TTYL Podcast #15 – Strip Search ANALYZED (w/ Dre Alvarez)

Strip Search stats podcast

That Thing You Like has tried, folks. We have TRIED to stop podcasting about Strip Search. But with such a memorable finale, and an overall great show, there’s still more to say!

To close out finale week, we were joined by sports analytics writer and fellow Strip Search fan Dre Alvarez (of WagesofWins and TheNBAgeek) to talk some of the finer details of the show. Topics include the psychological shortcuts that may have formed people’s first opinions of Amy and Abby, the value of winning a competitive challenge, and potential guest judges for Strip Search season two.

It’s a great interview, and Dre’s passion for the show and intense level of smarts made for a great conversation. You can read more of his thoughts on the show in his great article, “Strip Search Advanced Stats.” Enjoy!

  1. I reall liked the first elimination. I think one of the most important parts was Alex’s first answer when they were initially quizzed by Mike and Jerry. I think his quick, funny ‘efficiency’ cracking them up managed to lighten the mood in a way that might not have happened otherwise? Plus Alex’s happy demeanor seemed to set a tone that carried on!

  2. Enjoyed the episode! To answer the question you guys asked each other– yes, I for-reals was gunna give the prize to Amy if I had won. My husband told me it was a good thing I didn’t win, ’cause he would have divorced me if I’d gone through with that 😉 But yeah, that was my plan.
