Recipe To Riches My Head's going to explode

Puffin3 | Dec 2, 2012 07:09 AM

This 'food' show has got to be the most ludicrous ever to be shown on TV.
Someone thinks they have basically a 'fast food' that 'What's his name's billion dollar food company will want to mass produce. The 'winner' gets 250,000 bucks. The competitors prepare their item for some obscure judges. No problem so far. Them by some strange logic the few remaining competitors must 'batch up' making dozens of their items with the help of some obscure chefs and helpers. What's the point of that? Then the competitors must 'batch up' their item for say 500 people! Now the competitor who started out making a dozen 'Cheery Cherry cones' at home must show they are 'event planners'. Where did that brilliant idea come from? Mr. What's his name's food company gets a TON of advertising and the poor saps who had delicious home recipes but had zero experience with 'batching up' and 'event planning' go home and the most 'photogenic' contestant gets to be displayed as full sized cutouts at the end of Mr. What's his names food store aisles for week or so.
"Have you got what it takes to be the next winner of Recipe To Riches? All you need to be able to do is come up with a product that we can make millions on. Then you must be able to make a hundred of your product whether you have the slightest clue how to 'batch up' and then if you can do that you'll need to put your 'event planner' hat on for say five hundred guests.
Thank goodness for my 'delete' key.
End of rant.
