Ultimate Fighter contest

A few days ago I saw on Discovery the program "The Ultimate Fighter". I did not see it entirely, but is it correct that the only WW1 plane in the top 10 was a DR.1?

If so I must totally disagree.............

I think that program has been cussed & dis-cussed before. If it's the one I recall, it rated the F (sometimes F/A) 22 Raptor among the ten greatest of all time, never mind that it has barely gone operational after something like 15 years development. It may never fire a shot for real, but until it does, it has no business in a list of warfighting aircraft such as Tripes, Hurricanes, Corsairs, and Sabres.

If the F22 Raptor is on that list, then all the Star Wars fighters should be on the list. Hopefully we will not have to find out about its true capabilities in a real combat situation. That being said, shouldn't the SE5a or the Fokker D.VII be on that list as well. Who came up with this list?
