An insider on the show told the Herald “All seven of them were always up for doing things, they didn't want to just sit around the house or just go clubbing…There's a lot more to the lads than just working out in the gym. Jay happens to be the Hylands' conditioning coach so it was great to get them in for an episode,"
They continued "Philly may be the smallest in the group of lads, but he's by far the most daring -- he has no problem getting in the ring."
A source at TV3 said “It definitely became racier than originally intended -- it pushes the boundaries of Irish television like we haven't seen before.
"Since it aired on Sunday it's been the third highest trend on Twitter in the world and highest in Ireland. The reaction has been amazing -- whether people are saying good or bad things, everyone's talking about it."
This week 250,000 tuned in to the see the show. It also got coverage in the press around the globe including Gawker and Time magazine among others.
