Disturbed by "Best in Smoke"

Watched my third episode last night, in which the contestants paired up to sell BBQ through NYC vendor carts.

What disturbed me was how they select their meats - when given the "go", the contestants make a mad dash for the meat truck.

All well and good until it was made clear that Famous Dave Anderson, who is a large man anyway, has been carrying a limp all week and was unable to run. So, his partner had to run for the truck to fight for the proteins.

Why would they treat him like that? Watching him limp over to the truck was pitiful.

Why would the producers not have a "luck of the draw" pick where Team A gets first choice of meat and Team B gets the next 2 choices? Or some other selection method that doesnt involve running?

I wont watch this again.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
