Random fact - I've been dating someone for a few months now and he just told me he auditioned for the Pit Crew twice (seasons 1 and 2) but got knocked back as he was told they weren't looking for guys with tattoos.
How....odd? He has some tattoos on his chest/shoulder area but they're pretty innocuous, definitely not obscene/controversial in any way. Not even particularly in your face.
Seems strangely old-fashioned unless there's a good reason for it from a production standpoint I'm just not aware of. Any ideas?
