This is the only episode of Kitchen Nightmares I've ever seen. I know Gordon Ramsey has that other show, Hell's Kitchen, and I've never watched any of it either.

    Better than the schlock on TLC though, which might as well rebrand itself "The Freakshow Channel".
    Hell's Kitchen is just a cooking contest with Ramsey yelling at the plebes and telling them to "piss off," to use @Victor's vernacular.

    Reality TV is like watching a sunset on TV when there is a beautiful sunset just outside.

    So I am obliged to advise you that insults are against the rules and may lead to banning.

    Perhaps we should start asking the members if they see reality on TV.

    Mal+ thinks reality TV isn't staged? ROFL
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    @Victor said they were actors. Staged, sometimes, it depends on the show.

    I thought he meant that humans will almost instinctively start hamming if they know they have an audience, even if it's not entirely and consciously staged. The observer-expectancy effect, I guess it's called.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Right. Sami might get deported for possibly being involved in crimes that hint at drug distribution, threats, and extortion. Not hard to believe this guy is exactly how he appears.
