Storyline

In Spike TV's new series, Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer, one of the country's top restaurant and bar consultants, will give failing establishments one last chance to succeed. The show will delve into every business facet of running a bar from creating a profitable drink/food menu to crowd management to music selection to managing disgruntled employees.

Interesting idea, fake act
11 November 2016 | by aldobadeSee all my reviews

Oh man where to start, the idea is really good. It is nice to see such a reality show that fix things and gives recipes whether for food or drinks, but for god sake make me feel it's real !! the way you scream and humiliate people dude you're taking it so wrong. also please please please get a better equipment, I mean for real a camera man is following the bartender like right behind her!! and I should believe this is real ! this is so fake, put hidden cameras at least try harder to fool me.

Now let's talk about the way the show goes such a cliché, same rhythm nothing different. I know exactly what's gonna happen by the time goes you get bored of the fake act you're doing. I became interested in the recipes you provide more than the "problem" that you're trying to fix.

to finish this review, if you're a person who's gonna watch the show please make sure the volume is down because this guy screams a lot. Fake act it could be way better just take it to the next level and change the way you're directing this show.
