Caught with the new season premiere (Scott Cam) tonight. Great episode but the product placement that Scott took an Ancestry DNA test was annoying. Amazing discovery that Caminiti’s name (on Scott’s father’s side) went for at least ten generations and 500 years. Plus the episode busted the rumour that his mother’s ancestors had a Gypsy background.

It was. However, aren’t you guilty of often listing the sponsors (and product placement) in reality shows here?
