"Ink Master: Angels" and the importance of critical mass
There were 7 full seasons of Ink Master, hosted by the glory and the wonder that is Dave Navarro, before a woman won.
The female finalists became so popular that they now have their own runoff series, Spike TV's Ink Master: Angels.
So what was it about Season 8 that caused Ryan Ashley Malarkey to dominate the entire season and ultimately, win?
1) Raw talent.
2) Season 8 had the most number of women in the pool of contestents. Every other season there had been 3 or fewer. This time, there were 5. 4 of those 5 lasted until the final 6.
3) Those women formed a CROSS-TEAM strategic alliance to kick off the male weaklings, one by one.
4) Grown men broke down and quit because they couldn't handle the strong female competition.
5) After 7 seasons, the show (with 3 male judges) was getting flack for not having a female winner yet.
It was the importance of critical mass.
