The biggest criticism of No Limite 5 is about what was aired. Globo sectors assess that the program was very lukewarm and did not, in fact, make the ex-BBBs go through the troubles of those who live in an unhealthy place. For those who follow the American version of the program, Survivor, the difference was visible.
The criticism is even the biggest made on social networks about the program. Other complaints are the edition of the program, considered “predictable and dragged”, and even the choice of André Marques as presenter, detonated by viewers.
The program’s defenders, on the other hand, work in the nucleus headed by JB de Oliveira, Boninho, and in the commercial. According to them, No Limite was able to generate comments on social networks and was also a great commercial success.
There were seven fixed sponsors, in addition to commercial actions. With quotas between 15 and 30 million reais, Globo earned up to R$ 210 million this year with the program.
