Payout Perspective:

It’s clear that the viewership is being gained via DVR watching.  Episode 5 was the lowest of this season and its likely due in part to the shift in viewership habits to recording the episode and watching later.  Last year’s Episode 5 of TUF 25 drew 301,000 viewers and TUF 26’s Episode 5 drew 220,000 viewers.
