Where does Just Declare bidding come from?

Where does the bidding come from for the Just Declare deals? Are these simply randomly dealt hands bid by the robots? Are they chosen from hands bid by humans on BBO, and if so, how are they chosen? I'm curious as to why so many of the Just Declare deals are in such hopeless contracts. I understand that given the conditions of a Just Declare competition, I shouldn't really care how bad the contract is -- I have as much chance of getting a good matchpoint score in a hopeless contract as in a good one. I just need to go down fewer tricks than the other humans in the competition. I get that. But it does seem like many of the contracts on these Just Declare deals are pretty ghastly. So I'm curious as to where the bidding comes from.

They're randomly dealt, then automatically bid with "advanced" robots.

I played no declare ONCE by mistake. The bidding comes up for a very short time then disapPears and you have to play before you have a chance to remember who bid what . Never again.

You can always see the bidding. Click on the contract on the left side.

Agreed. Most of the contracts are ridiculous.

Just like regular tournaments.
