Is anyone watching this steaming pile of crap?
I started because I'll give most reality shows at least a chance but I don't know if I can stick with this one.
This is a competition to choose the next awful chain restaurant. The contestants all have "concepts" are are competing to win the investment of the show's judges (the CEO of Chipotle, Bobby Flay, a chef from Miami, and "Celebrity Chef" Curtis Stone). The winning contestant gets to open three locations of their restaurant (NYC, LA, and Minneapolis). Most of the contestants don't know how to cook. Few have any experience in the restaurant industry.
So many parts of this show are poorly executed and ill-conceived. Bobby Flay is apparently awful on set because at least half of his dialogue is obviously edited in after the fact. Last night's challenge involved serving 1,000 people at Universal Studios. The first part of the challenge was to interview and select a chef (remember, the contestants can't really cook...even though they were forced to in the first episode to see if they would win a spot on the show). Of course, a couple of teams wanted the same chef so the usual drama ensued. There's this poor guy who wants to open an Indian chain (one of the few good ideas on the show) and he got stuck with a chef from Sweden who has never actually cooked Indian food. Then, in the challenge, the judges criticized the food. Really? How about assigning each team a chef for the duration of the show? Maybe one actually familiar with the style of food for each concept? Of course, that would make too much sense.
Anyway, some lady who used to play in the WNBA got eliminated last night. This is fine because her concept was "wraps" and the last thing this world needs is more wraps.
Anyone out there want to share in my pain?
