I watch the show. The main guy is kind of a pompous fella and likes to yell at staff. Much like the cooking shows, most of the bars featured on the show go out of business eventually anyway. This leads me to believe the premise of all of these shows is wrong. It is not so much that the bar or restaurant is in need of a makeover, they are, it is more that the owner has given up on the idea a long time ago and really doesn't want to be doing it anymore.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand, I wondered how they would get the "stress test night" people to come in and suspected Craig's list. I could find nothing. Maybe Jon Taffer's daughter goes to UW.
edit: Would love to be an extra, I know how to drink. just sayin.
