| Filmmakers were brave/RIP Jordan
I had stumbled upon the videos myself. Years before the movie came out. Mostly the audition tapes. The guys were about my age. Specifically the ones with the MMA fighters. I did notice as the audition tapes came out Jordan Schillaci became less enthusiastic about the process. That wasn't anything that seemed like a red flag though. I thought it was acting. It seemed like a bunch of young adults having fun in their spare time. I was very upset to learn some peoples lives were ruined by the whole experience. It didn't seem like anything bad to me. Just some guys who were barely out of their childhood years enjoying tickle sessions. I saw it as childish fun, not anything sexual. I'm glad the filmmakers helped put a stop to David D'Amato and his harassment, when he was alive.

I know Jordan recanted some of his statements, but he seems terrified in those interviews with people from D'Amato's team. I recently found out Jordan died back in August (2019). I didn't know him, but it still broke my heart. His personality in the clips could pull people in, and his MMA fight clips are cool. RIP Jordan Schillaci.
