In my high school yearbook there is a note from a girl who wrote, "I like you even though you are very mean. I do not remember being mean to her, or anyone for that matter. I do remember I was feral in high school, socially awkward, emotionally closed off, completely lost. Or maybe I don't want to remember being mean because I've changed in the 20 years between now and then. Around my junior year, I went from being quiet and withdrawn to being mean where mean was saying exactly what I thought and making sarcastic comments, relentlessly.

Along with reminding people that they're in a competition , contestants on competitive reality shows also like to remind their fellow contestants that they did not come on the show to make friends or further their acting career , but that's a different issue entirely. Well, that makes sense. Especially in a social game show, fellow contestants have to like you, or at least respect you as a Worthy Opponent if you want to actually get further. There is also an implication that the contestant thinks they can win the contest all by themselves It's ultimately a redundant and self-destructive attitude since everyone on the show is there to win; there's nothing to gain in being a jerkass about it. It goes without saying that these characters are prone to Cat Fights.
No matter what show he was watching or reading about, Juzwiak had noticed that, at some point, one of the contestants invariably made the same defiant claim. For months, Juzwiak pulled together as many clips as he could find featuring the phrase, a process that required searching numerous recaps, and frequenting dubious video archives. It was a catch-all term for a new wave of fast-moving, detail-obsessed videos that isolated a recurring pop-culture trope. Some supercuts were specific to a movie or series, like a compilation of every ridiculous one-liner uttered by David Caruso on CSI: Miami. Some were merely having fun, pointing out ridiculous, overused catch-phrases; others were serving as a sly bit of cultural commentary. And when you see the pattern, you hit back at it. Ten years after the surge of the supercut, though, the era of the obsessive, affectionately critical montage appears to be over, done in by changing technologies, diminishing attention spans, and an exhaustion of ideas.
