I think Dustin/Kandice might have been recruited?
Which brings about my point about this near witch hunt. I think the practice of recruiting is indicative of production laziness but the main motivation of production is to bring about an entertaining show, not so much wish fulfillment. I don't think having a team that was recruited makes them any less compelling or entertaining (see: Kisha/Jen, Dustin/Kandice as above, James/Jaymes) or any less compelling, nor do I think it makes their performance any less legitimate. Similarly, a team that applied isn't going to be more entertaining to me just because they were applied *cough*Gary/Will, BJ/Tyler*cough*.
