    CaliGirl,

    Your recap was priceless!

    Watching the show last night, all I could think of is who was gonna recap it and what great material this show would provide. My favorite parts, with so many to choose from, are the interviewing scenes:

    "Why do you wanna work here?"
    " I eat, I eat alot. Im a COW"


    You just cant make that stuff up!


    P.S. Can you put me down for next week's recap....something close to the window please. *slips her a $20*
    Happy moments, praise God. Difficult moments, seek God. Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God

    Love it! You're in, Sepia.

    Thank you everybody for all your great comments and your appreciation. I love doing it and am glad I finally found a show that I can literally sink my teeth into.

He also gets some coffee which he throws in a blender (where the hell did that come from?) with a Ring Ding and pours the resulting oozing slime on a paper plate which is laden with the aforementioned goodies. The DJs apparently have not eaten at the trough for at least an hour so they are salivating at this gruesome offering. One of them takes a mouthful and shows delicate restraint by saying it’s “interesting.” The other one take a big gobble and can’t get over at how good it is. I would not want to see their blood sugar count at this point.

    OMG CG!! I was after I read this paragraph. I thought the same thing you did!! I believe it was the DJs that ingested the hallucinogenic...and thats why the guy couldn't get over how good it was.

    Great Recap! I enjoyed this show, even though a lot of it does seem staged...but thats a whole other thread!!

    Well CG, I didn't get to see the show, but with your astute observations I feel like I didn't miss a thing! Some of the reasons people give for saying they are qualified to work in a restaurant are quite unique. I have heard the "I like to eat", or "I wash dishes at home" or "I cook at home, it can't be that hard" and "I go out to eat all the time so I can wait tables". Look forward to hearing more of your exciting recaps!

    I've always supported reality TV and all the dating shows - even Survivor is sorta entertaining. But this show...seriously. I worked in the restaurant industry for 8 years, including the last two years, serving full time in a busy restaurant in Vail CO. I got paid hundreds of dollars a night to deal with this kind of stress.

    My only hope is that people realize how much work a server does and therefore tip the much appreciated 20% rather than 10-15%. You know we don't get a pay check - ever?! You know we pay taxes as if we got tipped even if we get stiffed?

    Now THAT's reality!

    I really loved this show and the recap was great as always, Cali! I'm looking forward to the next episode. Gideon, did you really drink all that spitty wine? Ugh! Hope you got lots of money in the pot.

    I'm not sure what your point is here. This is a recap thread.
