“But it’s going to be a feel-good judgment show and if you’ve been judged badly, we’ll give you a chance to break free.”
Looped said in a statement: ‘Judge Me allows outrageous real-life disputes to be resolved outside of the courtroom and encourages the general public to get involved by voting to find out who is right and who is wrong.
“Each week, fans are encouraged to submit unfiltered stories, dramas, and disputes with friends, family, co-workers — or even strangers on the internet — to have their disputes resolved by Pratt and viewers.
“Live, Spencer will ask questions to the duels and call witnesses and concerned members of the public on our virtual stage to double down on these claims.

Spencer’s new gig comes just weeks after MTV announced they had canceled The Hills: New Beginnings after two seasons.
According to TMZ, it was alleged that the original stars of The Hills had “major issues” with the reboot, including the recent exploration by producers to bring in “younger cast members.”

The outlet’s sources claimed the producers thought the inclusion of “younger” members would “diversify” the cast, but the idea was shot down by some of the original stars.
It was also alleged that “some” of the original stars thought The Hills: New Beginnings “wasn’t the show MTV promised them” and that she sometimes felt “forced with fake scripts and confessionals”.
Along with the alleged friction, it has also been claimed that COVID-19 was to blame for the show’s premature cancellation, as strict protocols made it increasingly difficult to film and coordinate schedules for a large cast.
Spencer and his wife Heidi Montag had been vocal critics of some of their cast members in press interviews, saying many of them were unwilling to reveal their real lives on camera and were too focused on the trying to look perfect.
