This is supposed to be -- and indeed it is -- an uplifting reality show about high-level CEOs getting in touch with the frontline people that make their businesses tick. It's heartwarming, it's so noblesse oblige.
But what we really love is to see these high muckamucks either fail utterly at tasks like making Subway sandwiches or perform menial, sometimes icky ones, like cleaning the AFR (Accidental Fecal Release) from the pool.
We do have a request though. Not since the Hooters episode have we seen a really bad employee. We'd like to see more, please, and then see them get their comeuppance. It can't all be carrot. Sometimes, you need the stick.
