    Tata was a huge loser jerk again tonight. The guy is extremely passive-aggressive. Looks like he's on the hotseat next week, I hope he gets what's coming to him.

    Wayne is a total ass, too. I hope his wife is watching this, and packs his bags for him.

    Still a great show, I'm glad I'm watching it.

    Tata reminds me of Jennifer Aniston's boss in the movie "Office Space" that was always complaining about the "pieces of flair". I hate people who let you know what there expectations are only after you have failed to meet them. I think he's gotta a secret crush on Ninya though.

    The episode was alright, kind of boring. I personally am not a fan of seeing people get drunk and do moronic things like jumping into a kiddie pool.

    That cracked me up too. I also like when he gave her that chip that she says is for recognizing when an employee has done well but with Tata he always gives it to her sarcastically. Did you know Ninya is a former Miss Nevada and competed for Miss USA?

Definitely, definitely need to learn how to do stuff like that cause all the works that they were putting together for the showcase were amazing.

    I'm not sure what's up with the new GM and the marketing dude, but they need a good heart to heart something fierce. Mr. Marketing needs to just quit worrying so much about things and just do his best, but at the same time the new GM really should open up a little bit more (he just seems very stiff and unpersonable to me).

    Be ready to pay a hefty price for a room even in the middle of the week, where traditionally even rooms right on the strip are discounted as opposed to weekend rates. I live down the street from this casino - it used to be beautiful to view from the freeway as you're approaching the strip but they've recently added tons of high end stores, more parking, more rooms and it has totally obliverated the view from the freeway, making it look like just another ordinary casino at first glance.....such a shame to take what was a real beauty and turn it into just another shopping mall/casino

    a few random thoughts

    I love this show! Way better than The Casino...
    But is it really good, or am I just desperate for something to watch because we are between seasons for The Bachelor and American Idol?

    You can tell these people are not actors..when they say anything clever you can tell they spent the morning staring in the mirror practicing. And they look so stiff and serious when stating the obvious..

    I am loving the corporate dynamics:
    In what reality is it considered a good idea to go out drinking with your boss...get totally obliterated...while he stays sober?

    Tata is an a$$...I have had managers like this who are smart enough to hire good people, but then proceed to micromanage and undermine them into quivering lumps of goo who know they will never be able to do anything to please him so desperately try to show progress so that the sadistic jerk can't fire them, but if he does they will have something tangible to put on a resume. This kind of manager will have HUGE turnover throughout his career, I bet he kisses a$$ really well and can be charming when he wants, but if he still has a job after the owners of this casino see the show and how he treats his subordinates..they have bigger problems than just Tata.

    Did the people who run this hotel go to the Goombah School of Management? What a motley group of unpolished and inarticulate goons. The executive chef has the charm of a pro wrestler; the host looks and talks like a gangster; the marketing manager is an overgrown frat boy and Tata ... don't get me started on that dwarf of darkness.
    Given Vegas's history, it's possible that this is the way things are done, but sheesh.

    Lorenzo Fertitta, one of the 2 casino owners, is also the CEO of Zuffa Inc, which is responsible for the Ultimate Fighting Championships. He's also a former CEO and part owner of Gordon Biersch Brewing Company. Frank, his brother, has always been in the gaming business. Their father started the Station Casino, and Frank was instrumental in taking it public. Station Casinos, Inc. is now the leader in off-strip casinos, catering to locals. They now own 12 casinos, employ 10,000 people, and have revenues exceeding $1 billion per year.

    It sounds like a successful company so they can't all be yahoos..
