When producers of Bravo’s “Spy Games” told Douglas Laux of Coldwater to approach the reality TV contest as if it were the real deal, he turned into a hard-as-nails instructor, the type he endured at the Central Intelligence Agency’s training facility called The Farm. Laux said his performance as one of the show’s three judges makes Simon Cowell look like a teddy bear. “They didn’t tell me to be mean but they did tell me, they said, ‘Doug, treat it like it was for you,’” the 37-year-old retired CIA operations officer told the newspaper while talking about his time on the show that concludes at 10 p.m. Monday. “I was like, ‘Do you understand how intense it is to go through the Farm?’ They’ll fillet you. They will open you up.” That’s exactly what they had in mind for the show that finds 10 contestants vying to outwit one another in a series of cloakand-dagger missions to become the top spy and collect a $100,000 prize.
